leaf, 27 Jan 2017Well... It's kind of a chicken/egg problem. All phones don't have a ton of RAM in them because... moreYeah but it's not the end all be all, it's not like they're giving you 4GB and nothing else in return, you're getting a ton of new software features, new hardware design and the latest SoC that's not only more powerful but way more efficient. Besides I don't even look at RAM anymore whenever I'm considering a new phone so long as it has 4GB, if it has more great if not so be it. I have a 4GB phone and I never ran out of memory so think about 6GB/8GB and the extra cash you're spending in return for almost nothing.

We... moreI wasn't complaining about the battery life of the S8, just how small the battery was compared to the screen size, one could easily fit a 3,700 mAh battery in that puppy. And for the design, I'm just saying how it looks like the S7, which looks like the S6, and all the Notes in between, while I do agree with you on the G6 looking like the G5, the G6 does not look anything like the G4.
Anonymous, 27 Jan 2017Yeah but your forgetting how much more efficient their displays are. And that the Social will... moreTrue I totally forgot about their reputation with efficient AMOLED screens and marvelous heat dissipation on top of the SoC's 20% energy conservation.

All phones don't have a ton of RAM in them because apps rarely take advantage of it and no developers make apps that take advantage of 8GB if RAM because vast majority of phones don't have that much.
Pushing the average RAM of phones up is certainly a net positive.

AnonD-638657, 27 Jan 2017More RAM on phones is a marketing gimmick just like high MP count or GHz... I can't believe mo... moreI like more RAM. But 8GB at the moment is overkill. At least if you could load the entire OS into the RAM. Not Sammy's TouchWiz, but a lightweight CM or variants. That would be something.
For now what you can do with extra RAM is allocate it to zRAM.
A winning award for the worst flagship phone 2017 according to specs/design/price Congrats

3.500 mAh battery with 4GB ram in touchwizz...
Worst fingerprint placement and down mounted mono speaker... Major deal breaker.
Anonymous, 27 Jan 2017 "I don't understand why people are so RAM hungry, it's a PHONE not a PC!" i am pretty sure... moreBut that shouldn't be the deciding factor in purchasing a phone especially when you know you won't be using anywhere close to it unless you have like 50+ apps open and a few heavy games which isn't a realistic situation for most users. If it had less RAM than you needed then that's a different story but 4GB is plenty, you won't find one 4GB phone user who'll say that it's not enough for them and their daily needs. And I always vouched for more RAM back in the day because phones were laggy AF due to the amount of apps I'd use on any given day, but not anymore. All phones are fast and smooth as long as it has a decent SoC and at least 3GB of RAM. More RAM is a luxury, you NEED a house to live in lol And again RAM is waaay more useful on a PC than a mobile phone lol always will be too unless it starts running x86 apps and progs.

I can't believe more people don't notice this or turn a blind eye to it; what's the point of having that much RAM if it'll be underused by a weaker mobile OS? Heck I have 8GB in my Windows 10 laptop and I barely use 60% lol I have 6GB in my other one same thing.
AnonD-638657, 27 Jan 2017It seems like you're trying to justify your recent purchase because other than picture taking ... more "I don't understand why people are so RAM hungry, it's a PHONE not a PC!"
i am pretty sure you said that about 720p vs 1080p vs QHD vs 4k, and when ram was only 512 to 1G etc... "oh it is not a pc , you don't need it"
you also don't need a stove and a house and a bed. You could be living in a cave with a fire and sleeping on the floor.
You want it because you can, not because you need it. It is how life evolves!
TRUMP, 27 Jan 2017Looks like Xiaomi Note 2... Hope this is fake... I will get Nokia 3310 if this is true....LOL you mean the phone Xiaomi modeled after Samsung's Note series?
3000 battery, less than S& edge with smaller screen? seriously... and no one hold the phone that high, that finger printer reader is misplaced.
Anonymous, 27 Jan 2017So if im gonna pay 850 dollars for the s8, I expect 16mp camera and 6GB of ram. If not i will ... moreWhich will cost the same if not more, hope the extra 2GB of RAM and minor MP bump is worth it lol
AnonD-569734, 27 Jan 2017This couldn't be it. How could the S8 not have the USB type-C port? Look at the image, it's no... moreIt's from EVleaks so rest assured knowing that the information here is legit, the photos might be altered though.
Anonymous, 27 Jan 2017"If you're excited for the Samsung Galaxy S8, today is a good day for you." Apparently not.... moreIt seems like you're trying to justify your recent purchase because other than picture taking quality (we'll see how it fares with the S7 later) the S8 is a great improvement over the S7/S7 Edge and better than the 3T thanks to its way more efficient and powerful SoC. I don't understand why people are so RAM hungry, it's a PHONE not a PC! 4GB is good enough for at least the next 2-3 years even with TW on top! If you're going to compare the 3T then compare it to the Pro which has a nice 3500 mAh battery, 100 more than your phone.
