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.

They have to justify the ridiculous high pricing of these phones so the specs are high. My phone has 3GB and its more than enough for me but I'm sure if I had a phone with 12GB I'd find some way of using it and presumably it has a super fast gpu and cpu to match so can run games better.
