Many features which have been available in Android for ages are now going to dawn into the iOS world with the upcoming iOS 14. Notifications management seem ancient compared to Android. Android provides much more flexibility and ways to play with your phone. Apple does do better job in RAM management but that does not mean iOS is advanced, it just means they've made such a walled-garden around their OS interface that they control every aspect of it and therefore throttle apps and processes so that they use the minimal memory storage possible.
Also, as others have mentioned, Google Pixels with their 4 GB RAMs run perfectly OK.

Anonymous, 23 Jul 2020Google OS were getting "fat" which means... phone with 4GB of ram is barely enough.4gb phones are just enough.Have u used stock android??.If not please try it and yes i don't know ehy this miui and samsune one ui or realme ui lags but stock android runs just fine.

If iOS can run on 2-3GB of RAM with no issues, so can Android. Google, get your head together and optimize Android/Wear OS. Android Lite's destined to flop

Today getting an android phone even with 4 or 6gb ram is less than half the price of an iPhone. iPhone is just an expensive smartphone that has nothing unique about it compared to other players in the market. Except for getting rid of the headphone jack maybe.

Getting an iPhone is definitely cheaper than getting an android phone with 3 GB RAM
Anonymous, 22 Jul 2020That is without a doubt a truly ill informed comparison... did you just really had put an x86_... moreYeah i feel the same most of them didn"'t know the basics and they are shouting android is not good ios is good.The only thing android should add now is the freedom to disable the apps.And the person who can afford a apple phone can also afford a 8gb andorid phone
Djnady99, 23 Jul 2020LOL you dont understand the problem in this case, Somewhere in the near future OEMs will c... moreWhat are u saying is not applicable at all any company has the freedom to put any processor they want google cannot stop them from doing it.Moreover they can not prevent companies from installing blotware or third party apps.Google just provides the OS thats all.And their are many phones available at low cost with 3gb ram so its not a that huge problem.The phones with 2gb ram can still use android 10.
Google OS were getting "fat"
which means... phone with 4GB of ram is barely enough.
Sayanbhar, 22 Jul 2020Good decision by Google !LOL
you dont understand the problem in this case, Somewhere in the near future OEMs will charge upto 50000 rs just for entry level phone.
instead of doing this, they could have restricted OEMs to use old chipset (like smartphone companies should got only 2 options of chipset in entry level phone, 2 otions for midrange phones and 2 options for flagship phones.
they could have added a restrictions on pre-installed bloatware apps like cleaner, a separate theme engine, pre-installed cloud storage service etc.
its not good you any of the customers, its all about there mini google OS.
this is not gonna benift any andriod users apart from OEMs & google itself.
Anonymous, 22 Jul 2020I think the laggy part is probably due to the performance of the storage too. My Note 5 is alr... morethat's not completely right.
your mobile lags, when your internal & external storage if full (but this only impacts the phone for account 0%)
actual reason of lags are heavy apps & OS system.
there is no option to kill system apps as well as even few downloaded apps contastly runs on the background even when you closes the app whihc consumes ram... also all the apps caches too comsumes a temp part of storage of ram.
i've pocophone f1 with 8gb ram and 256 internal storage + 128 gb external storage.
i've rooted my phone and i am using a custom rom with "PICO" version of opengapps.
i dont play games so dont have any gaming apps.
the only heavy app which i have in my phone is instagram app.
both external storage has 60% free space and internal Storage has 80% of storage space.
yet the phone lags because andiod os itself is too heavy.
did u ever used google movies or books app ?
customer should be able to uninsall unwanted system apps too but we cant unless a customer do not use pc or root the device for it.
basically, there are multiple reason why the phone lags but as google has the monopoly on andriod os in the terms of smartpohne market they will do whatever they think is best for them.
sadly, customer will always be non of their concern unless customers dont get 3rd OS option nad whihc should be apart from google and ios.
Peter, 22 Jul 2020No it's not. 4gb is enough. Even computer with 4gb of time is fine.Stop talking. If you use Windows 10 8GB Ram is necessary to run well. For phones 6GB Ram is great as there are many cheap phones with 6GB Ram.
Anonymous, 22 Jul 2020Why don't Google just make all apps the same foot-print as the Go variants? Why even have... morecurrectly, Google has the monopoly in andriod OS.
We need more options of ecosystem apart from andriod and ios (but its almost next to impossible unfortunately).
A tech guy, 22 Jul 2020Windows 10 requires minimum of 8gb. Also, the last time iPhone 4/5 got and update was like 6 ... moreThat's not true. Windows 10 minimum requirements is not 8GB RAM. I have a PC with 4GB RAM and it runs fine.
Anonymous, 22 Jul 2020Even 4GB Ram is useless.If you don't run heavy apps all the time, you will be fine. My Android devices all have 4GB or less and they are fine. Heck, I only use 2.5GB on avarage on my tablet. I am not a power user. My phone with 4GB can run 7 apps at the same time withput stuttering or alowing down a lot
