I cannot comment on S8, since I never had one.My s8 was unusable yesterday using maps and playing podcast at the same time using Bluetooth and light browsing, a lot had to reboot.
I’m guessing iOS kills unused apps and android with 4 gigs of memory lags when using a heavy app like maps.
I need to load my same apps in a iPhone and test it same way.
No it is not. Andorid does not have limit on background activities. Therefore, if some app was not designed probably, it will continuing eat RAM. Some app will automatically activities other related app in the background.Apple's memory management across their devices (macOS, iOS) is second-to-none.
Android is fundamentally flawed when it comes to that. Throwing more hardware resources at an OS to keep each iteration running as fast as the last does not address the underlying problem with memory management.
If a phone in 2019 needs 8GB of RAM, whilst a new MacBook Pro with that amount of RAM can run LPX, FCPX, and a virtual machine smoothly at the same time, you're doing something wrong.
