If it was 2 GB Ram....people here will jump off a building.....so it's definitely 3 GB. With the face ID and AR focus, they should have went to 4 gb ram. This phone is already gimped due limited ram when its supposedly doing more than other iphones.

Please go learn how iOS manages RAM. It’s not gimped.

Just because Android needs 4-6gb to manage things, doesn’t mean iOS does too.

Please go ask others on here if they want more ram and they will say yes. In the end, ram is what defeats the device especially iphones and the device slows down with the new larger more memory intensive updates and animations.

Just because “people want more” for no reason other than wanting more doesn’t mean it needs more. People will always say they want more if asked, but has no relation to it actually needing more.

If the system takes up 700mb-1gb of RAM and the app currently in use is taking 350-450mb of RAM (that’s the average most popular apps consume) and the 5 apps in the background are taking 50-70mb (50-70 for 5 background apps because iOS has RAM compression) then why do you need to have 4gb over 3gb.

Android needs it because background apps continue to consume the full amount of 350-400mb (average.) of RAM

I currently have like 2.7 GB of ram freely available on my Note 8...and a bunch of apps and tabs open at the same time....so no android isn't doing bad as you think with ram management. The 6 gb ram comes in handy.

Android is the gimped phone system since it uses cobbled together chips instead of purposefully designed A11 Bionic chip to match up with software and hardware of iPhone. There is a reason all the Android folks stopped talking about chip performance several iPhones ago. Cuz it’s hard to talk speed when they are left in the dust of A9, A9x, A10, A10x, and A11 Apple designed chips.

When your new iPhones become as smooth as the Note 8 and the Pixel 2 then come back because it's not as smooth as those devices. Enjoy a gimped iOS 11 for now.

isn’t this a hoot. So much fun telling others how there phone choice is for ****.

In the old days it was the Chevy, Ford, Dodge debates.

Technology changes, but the idiot operators go on as usual.

Me stuff good, you stuff bad...........beats chest a bit

The Note 8 is such a great phone that you can get almost the same amount of money for it used and you can for a used 7 Plus. Not 8 Plus, but 7 Plus. The 7 Plus beats the Note 8 for resale value.
Does that matter in the great swing of things...no... what matters is how much you enjoy your phone. Not here concerning prices and resell values. If that helps you sleep at night...go to bed....please.

I agree that 3gb is limited ram. Its actually appke fanboys who claim otherwise. Yes the memory management is highly effective...but you cannot open many apps at the same time. They will restart wich is annoying. Due to new ios features and apps using more ram in future updates, its even more problematic in the second and third year of the iphones after release.

Rules for Appropriate Debate

Respect
Guidelines: Show respect for your fellow posters. Expect and accept that other users may have strongly held opinions that differ from yours.

You can't call a bigot a bigot, a troll a troll, or a fanboy a fanboy, any more than you can call an idiot an idiot. You can disagree with the content of another member's statement or give your evidence or opinion to dispute their claims, but you may not make a negative personal characterization about that member.
  2. Insults. Slurs and insults against groups of people based on negative-stereotyping and obvious generalizations fall into the category of trolling and will be treated as such.
  3. Taunting. Mocking or taunting another forum member is not acceptable. Posts that ridicule another member or obviously exaggerate or misstate their views may be removed.
