People often ask: why is, for example, a 4GB of RAM still enough for an iPhone, but not enough for an Android phone? Have you thought about this issue?. I mean has it ever bothered you? what I am going to discuss here is the reason why android with bigger is ram slower than apple
You must know that the current iPhone 13 only has 4 GB of RAM, but such a size of RAM is hardly seen in any high-end Android phone in the market. In short, top android phones stopped using such small RAM many years ago.
Now the mainstream Android phone RAM has already reached 18 GB, which is in itself a mammoth size.
So, why is such an Android machine not running as smoothly as an Apple machine?
First, understand what RAM is?
RAM, called random access memory is a computer component that is directly connected to the CPU. It is characterized by being able to read and write data at any time.
It is also responsible for how fast or slow a program/app runs. The disadvantage is that data will be lost once the device is powered off.
Basically, the role of the ram is to temporarily store the operational data of the processor. So the user can access this information at any time and it doesn’t take long to load it from the slow built-in RAM.
Why do Android Phones Need More RAM?
First off, we are all aware that Google offers limited services on Android, On Android devices, all apps must run in the background. For example, when you open an application that consumes 100MB of RAM, then your RAM will be reduced by 100MB. Therefore, Android devices do require a lot of RAM!
On the contrary, On iOS, when the app is in the background, it will be suspended/paused and stop working. When the previous task is quit, the system will record the current application’s state and go to the new application.
From The above explanation, we can now see the reasons why the 18GB RAM of the Android phone and the 4GB RAM of the Apple machine are actually not based on their size, but whether such an increase in RAM can improve the stability and running speed of the mobile phone.
Has this explanation swayed the choice of your next flagship phone?
