Go to reply no.
Smartphones, like other technologies, are improving from year to year.
Every new model has better characteristics than the previous one: more powerful and less energy-consuming processor, better camera sensor, screen, bigger battery, more RAM.

What is RAM?
It stands, in general, for Random Access Memory. It allows to write and read data at the same time, despite their location in the memory.
As a type of RAM, DRAM stands for Dynamic random-access memory, which doesn't store information without power.

Smartphones
A particular type of DRAM is used in this case: LPDDR (Low Power DDR). The most recent model is the LPDDR4, which has 50% higher performance than the fastest LPDDR3 and consume around 40% less energy.

Android management memory

A simple explanation: in this OS, when you exit an app, it is kept in background. This happens with all the applications; when there is the necessity of more free memory, the apps are killed. Which process will be killed and which will not be killed? This is based on a "hierarchy system". A service gives to the processes values which indicate their single "importance".
So, more RAM should mean more applications and processes maintained in background..yes, theorically.
Practically, often, not in every case, it is occupied with bloatware and things like that.

According to some, 4 GB of RAM should still be enough, based on rom and resolution display.
For the most exiggent users, many manufacturers introduced devices with 6 GB of RAM.
Xiaomi too, obviously, announced its powerful model, the Mi 5s Plus.



How much RAM do you prefer in your smartphone? How much do you think is enough for you?

There will be always wanting of more RAM unless they optimize the usage and fix the leaks. For me 4GB LPDDR4 with highest speed is best at the moment.
