Samsung Galaxy S9+ appears in benchmark with (only) 4GB RAM, but it doesn't seem real

We don't have any reason to believe the regular Galaxy S9 model will feature a different technical specifications configuration except for the display. One other thing that the listing confirms is the fact that both smartphones will ship with Android 8.0 Oreo on board, which isn't surprising at all...

That's it, I get it now, you my friend are and idiot lol. If you think there isn't a difference between the phones you just mentioned then why the hell are we even having this debate because it is a compete waste of my time to be talking to you, you are one of those , they are all the same type of person and I hate it when people say that. I highly doubt you have used those phones you listed because I really hope you aren't that stupid and would prefer you just be a liar who wants to be right and knows they are wrong.

No, you’re an idiot if these are the lame ass things you worry about. Of course there is a difference dumb ass, or I’d never change phones... are you being serious or is this a joke? What I’m saying is that had nothing to do with RAM and everything to do with optimization and the efficiency of the OS. Samsung could make a phone with 20gb of RAM, and if the phone is running a crappy OS it’s still going to run like crap. This is exactly the kind of nerdy ass s**t that the average customer doesn’t care about as long as their phone suits their needs. How old are you, 12? Go buy a One Plus and let Samsung continue to sell millions of phones every year. Whatever they are doing is working

No. It's a problem for you. In day to day use no will be able to tell the difference between a phone with 4GB of RAM and one with 6GB.

How about Apple charging you $1k for 3gb of Ram and wireless charging that doesn't work

No it's not. Not for Samsung phones. I've had the Note 3, 4, 7, S7 Edge & Note 8. 6GB of RAM is definitely needed.

Not enough. S7 here, not playing any games, don't have Facebook or messenger apps etc, only business. RAM IS NEVER ENOUGH.

Depends. I'd prefer at least 6-8GB if they're going to expand DEX functionality

2GB on my blade z max is enough for me.

Dang. They are really low. This can’t be right.

This is 7420-like performance i.e. this is probably a S6 with edited build.prop No idea why PA still hasn't learned Geekbench can be fooled with a simple build.prop edite

What - the single core is on par with the S6 lol.

I'd like to see 6 gig of ram just because i've seen how the Note 8 destroys everything when it comes to opening apps that are in ram. It can hold about 30 apps including some big games and not have to reload them. It's faster than everything else day to day because it never has to shut things down.

I bought the unlocked S8 plus, and it's leaps and bounds faster than any of my previous phones. I'm very satisfied with it, but I would agree that more RAM would be better. Maybe once a week or so, Chrome has to reload tabs if I have many other apps open. It's a minor grievance, but two extra gigs would be an inexpensive fix and might just convince me to upgrade from this year's model.

With that much bloatware you need every inch of memory. These things slow down too fast.

Judging by youtube videos the Iphone X can open apps faster but thats down to its CPU, but the Note 8 can definetly hold more games in memory whereas the Iphone X has to reload them. And Samsung skimp on components? Don't their phones cost more to produce than Iphones and they sell them for less?
