The Samsung Galaxy S20 Has More RAM than Most Laptops and Thats Stupid
In the News
You might have noticed that Samsung has released several new phones recently, and the Galaxy S20 range are the latest handsets to come with a frankly ludicrous amount of RAM: a choice of 8GB and 12GB of the stuff.
And I’m not saying that in a ‘woah, that’s an awesome amount of RAM’ way, but in a ‘this is just silly, what smartphone needs that much RAM?’ kind of way.
After all, most Windows 10 laptops have 8GB of RAM or less. The fact that Samsung is pushing phones with that kind of memory is at best pointless, and at worse insulting to customers who are paying for RAM they shouldn’t need.
There’s another negative aspect as well, which I’ll get to in a moment.
But let’s address the main issue. Does a smartphone really need 8GB of RAM – or more? I honestly don’t think so. After all, I recommend that people buy Windows 10 laptops with 8GB of RAM, but then you’re usually performing more intensive tasks – often at the same time – with a laptop compared to a smartphone.
