Is 10GB of RAM in a Phone an Overkill?

For some of us:

Now, even if your answer is yes, it won’t stop Vivo from launching one.

According to the rumors, Vivo would once again have another first! The company might be the first to launch a Smartphone with 10GB of RAM, 512GB of internal storage and an embedded fingerprint sensor.

The name? Vivo XPlay7

Here is the interesting part, the same company that owns Vivo —BBK Electronics—also owns OPPO and OnePlus (Notice the trend with these devices?)

Given the rumored specs, you should expect to break the bank on this one (or not), and as far as the release date is concerned, rumors claim that it might get unveiled at the MWC2018 event. Until then I think it’s time I upgrade my MacBook’s RAM, don’t want to be outdone by a Smartphone.

On a serious note, though, I am of the opinion that 10GB of RAM on an Android Phone is an overkill thanks to Android’s RAM management system which is vastly different from Windows or MAC systems, but while these can be considered an overkill right now, inevitably, VR, AR, and others will gradually begin to demand those resources, so it wouldn’t hurt to have a device that can handle future demands.

Creating history... One review at a time.

      … WELL, IT WOULDN’T REALLY BE AN OVERKILL. THE MORE THE RAM, THE BUTTERY SMOOTHER THE PHONE.
      I WAS RECENTLY TESTING MY PHONE’S RAM CAPACITY BY OPENING UP 46 APPLICATIONS AND IT WAS LAGGING A BIT. NOW IMAGINE AN AND 8GB RAM BOOST OVER THE 2GB RAM OF MY NOTE 3.
      I WILL LOVE TO EXPERIENCE THE SPEED AND STABILITY…

        Na.. You’re wrong.. It also depends largely on the processor speed.. Ram is only to keep more apps in the background.. But if the processor speed is sub par then 10GB ram is utterly useless..

        Android should fix Ram management and not just pouring in too many GB spaces

      Just imagine the speed of that phone

        Sigh. It won’t necessarily be fast thanks to Android ram management which doesn’t use all of the available RAM

      Wow….I’m speechless

        Then you don’t know anything

    7. 10GB is too much jor. Haba nah. It’s a smartphone not PC for official task nah. Anyways let’s wait and see. In case you need a smartphone with mind blowing features then go for Meiigoo mate 10. The phone is just perfect for a budget device.

      Overkill. What do you need that much multitasking power on a phone for? We still need traditional computers for a reason; its good at computing stuff. A phone is suppose to complement not become a computer cause it will never be able to achieve that.

      “Once upon a time”…. (it feels dinosaurs still prowled the Earth then) 1 GB RAM was considered Overkill. There’s a saying one can never have too much RAM. How many applications am I going to keep open at the same time? Or want open in the background?The Android OEMs should focus more on improving battery life and RAM management. They should also stop these yeye increments in performance from one CPU to it’s successor

      I had about this beast device but if is really real men that device is Paradise.

      It’s not an Overkill. Considering the amount of apps rolling out nowadays, their features and memory (+ internal) size.
