11 Smartphones (We Have Reviewed) That Have 6GB of RAM

More RAM, more life

While we put big importance to battery life and power-efficient processors, we should also give importance to RAM as well. Having more RAM would mean more memory for your apps, which means better multitasking and better overall phone performance. A higher RAM would mean a lot especially if you are running power-hungry games, and they complement with a good processor for a fuss-free gaming experience.

These days, smartphones have an average of 4GB of RAM onboard. However, that does not stop brands to take one step further and equip their phones with 6GB of RAM instead. Check out our list of notable smartphones equipped with an extra oomph of RAM. Do note that we only included those we have reviewed on the site, so if there are other 6GB RAM smartphones you can think of, do give us a heads up.

 

Doogee Mix

Having 6GB of RAM does not necessarily mean a phone should be expensive. That is the case of the Doogee Mix, as it has 6GB of RAM for Php 12,995. While we have mixed thoughts about the quality of its cameras, the Doogee Mix is no doubt an affordable alternative to the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2, which is also on our list.

  1. Letv LeEco Le Max 2 Smartphone
    6GB RAM 64GB ROM
    Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 2.15GHz CPU.
    5.7″ 2560 * 1440px capacitive multi-touch touch screen
    Dual Cameras, 8MP front camera, 21MP back camera

    The best part? ? 12,299.00 at Lazada

      1. If it’s anything, I have the Letv LeEco Le3 X626, bought from Lazada since early November this year. Mediatek X20, 4GB RAM, 5.5inches FHD, 32GB ROM (sadly non expandable) and EUI based on Android Marshmallow (unfortunately and with no hope of upgrade).
        Price: P4,700. Is it a steal? Hell, yeah!
        Its cameras rival phones costing at least 5 times as much (Sony IMX sensor, forgot which one). It is snappy: Antutu score of 90k plus, if that means anything to you. Vibrant screen, fast connection, good sound, fingerprint scanner, USB C.
        I would risk promoting this brand, sorry, but the price to performance ratio is out of this world.
        The phone model you are eyeing should be much better, given its specs.

  2. For that price, bro, it is a no-brainer. Just go for it. I haven’t done geekbuying, banggood, aliexpress and the like, though. My only worry here is for a damaged / lost / different item and how to have it replaced. Lazada is fine with me. Perhaps you can educate me on buying items from geekbuying, etc.

    For *me*, GENERALLY I don’t worry about warranty and after sales service. These are just fluff emphasized by manufacturers to give you some sort of *peace of mind*.

    Smartphones are commoditized products that are bound to be replaced anyway, in what? 2 to 3 years? Pretty soon you will get that upgrade bug (GAS) again.

    I have my Zenfone 2 bought in June 2015. Sure it has warranty but did i use it? Nope. During the middle of this year, its non-replaceable battery developed a significantly shorter run time. But no worries, I just tether my power cable if I want to use it, however rarely because I love my new Letv S3.

    You can just give your old phones to other people, use it for CCTV monitoring, play music / videos etc. If it gets broken, there are lots of skilled phone repairers around.

    Are you in the habit of getting the latest Android features that you itch to have for each and every iteration? For *me*, these just complicate things. I need a smartphone just to surf the net, play videos, music and games, do social media and of course, call and text. But hey, that is just me.

    Good luck on your purchase decision.
