MarcoK, 27 Jul 2015I bet the note 5 will still lag and reboot apps even with 4gb of ram like my s6 with 3gb ...Mate, the whole Galaxy range should change the name to Reboot :) Samsung Reboot Note 9 with 120GB of ram 32core processor etc yet still running simple Android apps hahahaha
I am going back to iPhone6 or the new Moto X or OP2.
My S6 is a terrible phone.
It lag .. lag .. lag & and getting slower and slower day by day.
I must restart the phone every day!.
What is the benefit of increasing the ram capacity, while it is more than 90% occupied.
The camera and screen of S6 are awesome, but Touchwiz and battery are miserable.
I really don't know what people like about Samsung..
God! All of that is happening because Nokia left us.
I love this: (available ram 19%) hahahaha puuure perfection :) Android, TouchWiz and maybe few simple apps in the background only take 3gb of ram hahahaha
SaRPeR, 27 Jul 2015They clearly said this is a prototype. You know what prototype means ?S6 has the same problem, I hope they will ix it with Android M update but now, with 5.1.1 the s6 feels like a phone back in the days when they had 512mb of RAM... Homescreen reloads all the time...
MarcoK, 27 Jul 2015I bet the note 5 will still lag and reboot apps even with 4gb of ram like my s6 with 3gb ...stil provides way better functionality than any ios or windows device.
they could be running heavy duty tools to check performance...or even if it has a quarter free while using 75% of total RAM whats the issue? may be you should go back to iphone's unspecified inferior specs.

wow, how many years into android and people still does not understand RAM usage with Android OS. Amount of RAM available does not indicate inefficiency.
Anonymous, 27 Jul 2015Available RAM: 743 Mb. Says it all, really! 4GB RAM is as much as my laptop. Yet my laptop is... moreRelax..first of all, it's "innovating" and secondly, it's still in prototype state. I hope you do know what is prototype is.
Now that we're sure it's the Exynos 7422 . what's left is to confirm that the battery is 4100mah , then it'll be time to upgrade for me , from Note 3 to Note 5 . ggwp
So, I'm gonna paste this here again, many will dislike it, but it's bad that GSMArena doesn't even bother to reply. Are we really that "much" worth for you?
OK, I see that GSMArena doesn't event want to listen to the comments of the loyal readers.
And I get them, totally.
I am following GSMArena for over 4 years now, and I know one thing for sure, I know where to click, when I come here, I know exactly what I want to see, so I never click on any ads. And I am sure that every other "loyal" reader never clicked on an ad also.
That's where the whole revenue of GSMArena comes from. That's true. That's why they don't care about us, or that's why they want us to "like" this new design (and lack of disqus) by force.
But either way, we make traffic for GSMArena, we are the ones that make GSMArena go on the top results when someone searches a phone in Google.
I still get back here once a day, but that will end soon. It's not a threat, it's neither that I want to (GSMA is the only source of daily news I get, not just tech, news overall), but I really don't feel comfortable with the new, ugly, cluttered design. And without disqus, the blog section is almost dead.

4GB RAM is as much as my laptop. Yet my laptop is waayy better at multitasking and has far greater productivity than this 4GB gimmick. Seriously, Sammy needs to start innovatong again. I've already moved to Xiaomi.
