Welcome MIUIers to another Tech Wednesday,

Today's Tech Wednesday is about RAM. Buying a smartphone today can be confusing. Long specification sheets are crammed with numbers, and their relationship with real-world performance is not always clear. One of the most misunderstood of all those specs is RAM, or Random Access Memory. Do you still want to use a phone with 2gb ram or not?

Smartphones have come a long way in the last few years and do more for us now than ever. As we perform more and more tasks using our smartphones, more RAM is necessary for them to continue functioning efficiently.
When you run an app or game on your phone, it’s loaded into RAM. As long as an app is still in RAM, you can jump back into it where you left off without loading it afresh.

This is why RAM is important for multitasking. The loaded apps stay there until your RAM fills up and needs to flush something to make room for something else. In theory, more RAM means that you can have more processes and therefore more apps running at once.

It actually depends upon the user. If he uses a lot of apps, more RAM is need. Otherwise, 2 is enough.........

For me since I only use 1 or 2 apps only a day, 2gb ram is enough. But it really depends on the user. There are also people who prefer multitasking

No way we may even move to 32 gb in coming years as the semiconductor devices become even smaller
