prince, 12 Jul 2016good morning seems you woke up late hahahahaI woke up just at the right time when I am planning to buy a new phone. I don't spend my days going through mobile phones websites unnecessarily like you.

That costs power, write and reading from DRAM also costs power and on top of that the I/O drivers need power. To know why in more detail you need to have some digital electronics background, not about to describe an entire univerrsity subject in one post.
The more DRAM there is to address the more power it takes for the memory subsystem. Exactly why the Oneplus 3 has a neutered pointless 6GB RAM on in there. they did it for marketing but castrated it to preserve battery life anyway. On a laptop/desktop you can get away with 5W even 10W increase, on a smartphone SoC even 0.5W more is very costly and somewhere like 1W more leads to sure shot throttling in such TDP constrained form factors.

The problem with having too many apps in memory are wake locker and more chances of memory leaks which lead to battery leak. Those are all sovlable by having a demon throwing out of memory those apps actually abusing it.
Ram management is indeed a problem, but having less ram does not actually help. It's like saying bigger cars use more petrol therefore they are not good for fuel efficiency. And the answer is not necessarily, as they also cover distances faster thus in average, per distance, may actually use less oil...
Zack, 12 Jul 2016Nah considering how well the oneplus 3 is doing 6-8 GB should be the new standard!Oneplus 3 is doing terrible, proving exactly why even they are not ready to push the use of all that RAM at the cost of power consumption, they've even admitted as much. It costs power not only to refresh every cell in the DRAM chips it also costs even more power to read or write into DRAM. People have no clue about the effects on power consumption from the memory subsystems. This is not a PC where extra power consumption of 2-5W more isn't even perceived. An extra 1W is disaster for TDP restricted form factors like mobile SoCs.

Bunyip22, 12 Jul 2016Yeah... Everyone is so sick or rectangular phones... There's many ways of being rectangular Lol
Some of those people demanding 4GB ram are really slow. They really don't get how Ram works on android. They don't get for example that ram is more important that SoC for smoothness. More ram means more apps cached in memory thus less loading time. Guess what you do on a phone, load one app after another, it's silly and uncalled to not see that. It's basically the most important spec about every day smoothNess of a phone...
MAX, 12 Jul 2016Did the skip the note6? Wasnt the last generation note 5?good morning
seems you woke up late
ORANGEPE0X1DE, 12 Jul 2016It looks like the oneplus 3. Hate me sam-boysNothing else needs to be said, but, your shitposting needs work.
Anonymous, 12 Jul 2016No difference with One plus 3 Iris scanner, QHD screen, water/dust resistance, microSD support, respectable battery size *coughweakass3000mahcough*, S Pen, wireless charging, yeah you're totally right, same exact phone as that HTC 10 ripoff.
Stick to 4GB RAM max, put in that 4000mAh battery increase the thickness and make those whyning mawrans out there run away while real serious buyers with common sense get to buy a well rounded device.
But this is Samsung we are talking about here, too focused on imitating Apple, so reasonable expectations have to dropped to satisfy spec nerds with weakly endowed mental faculties.
Jarret, 12 Jul 2016Don't compared this Samsung high-end to any low quality/low techs Chinese brands, please...No difference with One plus 3
