If you statement can be accepted tell that to iPhone, iPhone with 4Gb ram = Google Pixel with 8Gb ram
Aslipundit, 03 Aug 20184GB ram is PLENTY for 99% of smartphone tasks. Have hundreds of apps in the background is stup... moreYou are horrendously wring take a look at recent MKBHD Video, he says he had switched from Pixel 2 XL to OnePlus 6 due to horrible sluggishness on Pixel 2 XL, and please Next iPhone is coming with 4GB,Even 200$ Xiaomi RN5 comes with 6 GB ,
So don't be an apologist for Google saying 4GB is enough
Google will never beat Samsung or iPhone or will never be
Because right now that can do all things with single camera, there is only so much you can do with a single camera, n the upcoming years optics are gonna addu9 and pixel will eventually start using multiple cameras
Also Pixel does not have great video camera, iPhone X has great video cameras
Pixels are too expensive anyway. Approaching iPhone X ridicilous prices.
Anonymous, 03 Aug 2018Phones are approaching desktop replacement state. When it does, 4GB is not enough. This ... moreWell, for full desktop computing, maybe 4 GB is not enough. But i have a Surface Pro 4 Core M with 4 GB and i can do almost everything with it that i can do on my work computer with 16 GB RAM. Games and high end animation or multimedia editing software are the only things you need high RAM. Spreadsheets, powerpoint, project management software etc can all work completely fine in a 4GB unit.
@ people crying about the RAM. Please use your respective 6 and 8 GB RAM phones and see how much RAM you can use up. Thats right.
I will take a google phone with 4 GB RAM over a 6 GB/8GB Huawei or Oppo phone.

This Google XL do not need thou. OnePlus have no reason also.
But Note 9 / S8 / S9 needs as dex mode is gonna need it soon. As you can see Samsung ramping up the ram since the note 7 series.
Only 4 GB, is it a 2016 phone? They should offer at least 6GB in the base model to future Prof it, especially at that expected high price. Seriously disappointing.
Also flexes it's hideous unibrow and hideously designed THANOS CHIN.
well iphone only needs 3GB of ram to get higher score on geekbench than that
4GB ram is PLENTY for 99% of smartphone tasks. Have hundreds of apps in the background is stupid anyway. Especially on stock android.
8 GB RAM is useless. Try running a Oneplus 6 8 GB version with lots of apps. It will start closing background apps long before the RAM capacity is reached. There is always 3 plus GB free despite the no of apps.
Lets face it, anything 3Gb and above can smoothly run the OS and apps smoothly. Its all about hyping specs for consumers.
2 fans below that understand better than Google the hardware requirements for android to run properly.
I hope they read their comments again and decide to remove them. They got no idea how ridiculous they sound.
"Google Pixel 3 XL flexes SD845 muscles"
... comes with "4GB RAM"
Those muscles must be really small and underwhelming.
