oneplus_3_001So far reviews of the OnePlus 3 have been fairly positive. After all you do get what you pay for, and what you get is a value for money handset with mostly high-end specs that you would expect from the likes of Samsung and LG. In fact in some areas like its RAM, OnePlus 3 even beats out the competition by offering a whopping 6GB of it.

However it seems that despite having so much RAM, it seems that the phone does not use it properly which has led to complaints about the handset’s poor RAM management. The good news is that OnePlus has acknowledged the issue and has promised that they will be addressing the memory management problems in an upcoming update.

In case you’re hearing about this for the first time, it seems that despite the generous 6GB of RAM, the OnePlus 3 is actually having some issues with memory management where it would kick apps out of its memory, meaning that if you close an app and launch it again later, it would have to launch as if it were a fresh launch which in some cases will lead to longer waiting times.

That being said, the bad news is that the update will only be heading out to review units for for feedback before being pushed as an OTA to other OnePlus 3 users later on. However if you can’t wait so long, the folks at XDA have published a potential solution that you can try at your own risk.
