Apple’s magic of brilliant Optimisation: iPhone XS Max (4GB RAM) vs OnePlus 6T (10GB RAM-McLaren Edition)
I saw this being posted a couple of times saying how insane it is that an Android phone has 10GB RAM, but optimisation does the trick without the need of all those numbers..
The fact that 4GB RAM phone can hold up, and even beat a 10GB RAM phone is mind boggling, to say the least.
*On a similar note, I thought I should address some recurring controversial takes on this issue..*
**“6T is more value for money tho..”**
*Yes, we know that. iPhone isn’t for those looking for bang for the buck kind of product.*
“**A $1400 phone is faster than a $500 one… WOW”**
*Despite its low price, the 6T is arguably the fastest Android phone out there. Coupled with flagship level SoC and 10GB RAM on the top of fast and light OxygenOS, this is probably the best performance you can get out of an Android phone, no matter the price.*
*Not to mention the 6T has beaten $1000 Android flagships. So this comparison is basically the ‘fastest Android vs fastest iPhone’ kind.*
**“RAM hasn’t got anything to do with speed and first lap”**
*Yes. It’s a speed test, a complete one. RAM might not matter for the first round, but it does in the second. The first round shows app launching times but the second round is what this post is about. Despite having 2.5 times **less** RAM, the iPhone keeps up with the 6T.*
*To the end user, it doesn’t matter what architecture their phone is using, they don’t care about the channels/memory bandwidth/(insert any other technical jargon) their phones have, they care about their apps being in the same place where they left it off. That’s the end result. That’s when your average joe concludes that his iPhone has amazing RAM management.*
