Why is 6gb ram soo important for you guys? 4gb is more than enough are you guys using the note 7 for NASA!
yesterday event in china , confirm that no 6gb , but it also said the next edition will be the 6gb with 128g , Samsung can launch 公开版 OFFICE EDITTION , I SUGGEST WAIT IS GOOD TILL THIS SEPT LETS SEE WHAT APPLE BRING
MobiFix, 26 Aug 2016Yeah ''ONLY'' for GArena 4GB is fkin ONLY . aah well next year .. ONLY 8GB .. another... moreare you out of mind gsmarena is saying only 4gb since Samsung said they will be releasing 6gb ram why am I even replying makes me feel stupid myself

Most of everything is being loaded from ram (when it is there), NOT from storage. That's why the brand new with the extra fast storage and SoC loses to Oneplus 3.
Most of what people do is open and close apps. Having more ram means doing them in a jiffy instead of always loading them from storage. Phones with more Ram would ALWAYS best phones with better SoCs or faster storage in app launches.
Anonymous, 27 Aug 2016its because CDMA networks are not supported by Exynos. Thats why snapdaragon 820 is used in US... moreLast year,samsung used their own exynos processors in the galaxy s6/s6edge exclusively,including the CDMA models,because the sd810 had thermal management issues.So,exynos must be CDMA compatible as well.
snapdragon 820 soc & 4gb ram capacity is enough, what we need is speed of ram and speed of ufs storage.
Haha, milk those fan boys. And when the 6GB Note 8 (or 9 at this point) comes along you'd be able to call it "new and revolutionary".
Bleh, Samsung reminds me of Apple these days. Of course Samsung fans (not unlike Apple fans) would write below how "more specs" don't matter and how they can do everything already, etc, etc ... But the truth is they do matter. That is why my iPaD Air is dog slow with iOS 10 (it only has 1GB oF ram), that is why a cheapo from China (Oneplus 3) is faster than Note 7 already, even though it came out earlier at half the cost, that is why Note 7 would seem outdated in 2 years from now.
Hardware matters, there is no escaping to that and OEMs know it, that's why they outfit their flagships with the least possible that would still allow them to be called flagship. How else would the user buy the new one when it comes along?
Hard to think that my Note 3 is still going strong, 3 years after its release, let's see how Note 7 would fair in 3 years...
There is a noticeable fall in quality of Samsung flagships, after removing the capacity to put extra large batteries, now this. I just hope people and reviewers would stop pandering to them..

its because CDMA networks are not supported by Exynos. Thats why snapdaragon 820 is used in US and China. Europe and Asia mostly have GSM and LTE networks
JMTM, 27 Aug 2016oh stop with your nonsense do you work for Samsung or something? 1440p does drain much mor... moreYou need high resolutions for virtual reality and its not waste at all in modern days for content viewing (i notice a difference). The S7 with a QHD display has more battery life than the OP3 with a FHD display, both having equal cpus and 3000 mAh (yes it has more ram, but its still less than 1.25mv of power used by the memory on both since its DDR4 based, since desktop is 1.25volts we should assume it doesnt consume 3-5mv as the cpu at full clock, even with gigs). Its about how each component is made and its target power consumption only.
Samsung should have come up with the 6gb ram model in the first place. I think the current hype for the model is only temporary when others will catch up especially anticipation of supposedly iPhone 7 in coming month.
JMTM, 27 Aug 2016oh stop with your nonsense do you work for Samsung or something? 1440p does drain much mor... moreI thought it was already established that screen resolution is not really the main cause of battery drain, but the optimization of the software and skin of the device? Look at the battery tests. Clearly samsung's 1440p amoled displays do compete and even beat many of those 1080p displays from other manufacturers. And you can have all the RAM you want but if the software isn't properly optimized, then all of that memory will be put to waste.
JMTM, 27 Aug 2016oh stop with your nonsense do you work for Samsung or something? 1440p does drain much mor... moreSo why all the major phone manufacturers are making their flagship with 4GB of ram?(Sony,lg,htc,Samsung) Only those Chinese ones are making phones with 100GB of ram so they can impress people with those useless specs.
JMTM, 27 Aug 2016oh stop with your nonsense
do you work for Samsung or something?
1440p does drain much mor... moreThe 1440p display takes less battery than the 1080p display on the galaxy s5 or the 1080p on lcd displays. The extra battery drain comes strictly from the increased strain on the GPU. But how big is that strain?
Anyway, as I said, people value display. People buy Samsung specifically for the display.
But again, that's besides the point. 6gb ram has no value. At all. In fact the most popular phone to use it, the one plus 3, did it solely as a marketing gimmick. So why should anyone in their right mind care about 6gb ram?
Let's draw a line shall we. They need to optimise software for their hardware, not the other way round.
JMTM, 27 Aug 2016oh stop with your nonsense do you work for Samsung or something? 1440p does drain much mor... moreThat's hilarious,I was literally waiting on the same individual to attack my post,and was going to respond in essentially the same manner.With the addition of that it was pointless to engage in any conversation with him,being as he's just a Samsung schill.Well said.Sent from my S7edge.

do you work for Samsung or something?
1440p does drain much more battery than 1080p
and for sure it does more than having 6gb ram
why do we need 6gb?
yes we might not need it since 4gb is plenty but
the point is they choose not to while they could
stop defending samsung lol here
if you really think 6gb is not necessary and Samsung put 4gb for a reason then there should be absolutely no reason for them to release 6gb version for china
If you were living in China and gets to choose in between 4gb and 6gb with 128gb storage
honestly are you going to pick up a 4gb?
A7RII, 27 Aug 2016Oh no it's the end of the world, it ONLY has 4gigs of ram. I want a phone with 2000GB of ram tough.
Estimu, 26 Aug 2016well that's what happens with rumours... they're not always true... in fact... u can see how ... moreSamsung itself already admitted to the possibility of the model for the Chinese market onstage.It would seem that a large part of their reason for backing down on its availability ,for now,would be in response to customer anger in the rest of the world.Let's check back on that availability in a month or two,after things have quieted down.
