When it comes to choosing a smartphone, there are many things to take into consideration, like display size, resolution, camera, and so on. However if there is one thing that users should probably also consider is the amount of RAM that comes included with the phone, because as the video above shows, the amount of RAM certainly has a huge impact on performance.
The video above by PhoneBuff sees the iPhone X VS the Razer Phone VS the OnePlus 5T in a speed test. The iPhone X comes with 3GB of RAM while the Razer Phone and OnePlus 5T feature 8GB of RAM and also almost identical hardware specs, save for the display in which the Razer Phone has a display with a refresh rate of 120Hz.
In the first round, the iPhone X managed to blow past the competition with a ton of ease, completing the first round in 1 minute 17 seconds, while the OnePlus 5T took 1 minute 19 seconds, while the Razer Phone seemingly lagged behind with 1 minute 29 seconds. However the second round which was basically a test of multitasking and keeping apps open in the background, it is clear that the 8GB of RAM helped.
The OnePlus 5T ultimately took the crown by taking 26 seconds to reopen all the apps, while the Razer Phone took 30 seconds. As for the iPhone X, it seems that the 3GB of RAM really slowed it down as many of the apps had to be relaunched, resulting in the second round completing in 54 seconds, more than double that of the OnePlus 5T.
