lk.123, 22 Feb 2016but works better/smoother than 6gb of ram! man just upgrade to a 1tb of ram, no need highlight... moreI very much doubt it. I've used an 8gb surface pro running remix os. It absolutely obliterated ios performance. Ios only seems fast in low ram situations because it pauses most apps in the background, in high ram situations it's veeery much slower...
Try it! Install remix OS to your pc, and see it shaming iOS...
apertotes, 22 Feb 2016Yeah, but... Will it play Crysis?God! People know nothing about computers here. It's depressing. Crysis actually have a very small ram footprint, it needs a powerful gpu.
Android apps have a far larger ram footprint (in the long run). 6GB should had been the flagship amount of 2016. OEMS people's misunderstanding of ram's role and filled their phones with cheap 4GB.
This Vivo would be faster than everything out there. Ram in phones is more important than CPU performance (phones serve data to the user, they don't process most of it).
apertotes, 22 Feb 2016Yeah, but... Will it play Crysis?no, it requires 6gb more.
Anonymous, 22 Feb 2016Guess the 6gb ram it is not needed at the moment.. But its there to give you the feeling like ... moreWhat does that even mean? Android is not windows. In Linux subsystems the more ram you give it the more they will use creating a ram disk with your most frequently used apps over time (a ramdisk of sorts).
Of course it's need if you need an extra responsive phone. It will literally kill the 4GB phones even if they have better Socs simply because all your most important apps would be cached in ram.
Jin1234, 22 Feb 2016Because Apple forever stuck with 1gb or 2gb ram. but works better/smoother than 6gb of ram! man just upgrade to a 1tb of ram, no need highlight it as a feature for every device!.
Jin1234, 22 Feb 2016Because Apple forever stuck with 1gb or 2gb ram. They aren't stuck at 1 or 2gb ram. It's just that number is already enough to handle the powerful & optimized SoC.
Anonymous, 22 Feb 20166gb ram is ridiculous!! there is no reason to have 6gb ram on a smartphone! Stop playing so many video games on PC and enter android.
6GB is far motor important to android than it is to PC. Simple: android uses all of it (it caches apps over time), pc only uses only what it needs at the time.
A phone typically needs that ram more than a pc because it is always on (people rarely reboot) and serves data to the user. It's a mini server and servers neeeed ram.
If I had a dime everytime people misunderstand ram and think a set amount is enough I would be rich.
Finally a company that gets it and creates a true flagship performance wise! Everything else would kinda feel like last year compared to this phone's performance RAM >>>>>>> SoC in android phones....

This Is Just Stupid,using More Ram To Cover Up Their Gross Inability To Optimize Software And Just Grab Cheap Popularity
Guess the 6gb ram it is not needed at the moment.. But its there to give you the feeling like you dont have to change ur phone every 6 mouths
You know the smartphone OS s\_/cks when you have to throw in the amount of ram that is more than sufficient to even run Desktop OSs.
Anonymous, 22 Feb 2016Yes, higher is better. You can see how android are getting more active into VR world and 360 d... morehuh ??? suddenly u bring apple ? for what ? did i mention any apple here? oh... i know .. android user always afraid with apple.. apple always no 1 in ur mind .. right ?
and what to do with "higher is better" and 360 camera ?? and we talk about ram , not the camera ... and that only samsung accessories , did other android brand have that ??
and talk about vr , did u used that vr ? did it useful ? what u get with that vr ? tell me...
Anonymous, 22 Feb 2016I'm wondering too. Its like getting street car who can drive 600km/h. Bad comparison . A correct one would be getting same size car but larger passage seat .
Dot-WiFi, 22 Feb 2016u know ... according to android fan , "higher is better"Yes, higher is better. You can see how android are getting more active into VR world and 360 degree camera capability. Iphone will remain the most outdated phone in the world.
