Long ago that 8GB RAM was considered a pretty sizable amount even for a computer. Now we are here in 2017 and 8 GB RAM smartphones are a thing. The majority of phones with 8 GB RAM come from smaller companies. These companies want to make their devices stand out from the crowd.
The best choice when it comes to a phone with 8GB RAM
This year’s flagship device from OnePlus is its most expensive device but it still offers great value for money. Announced back in June, the high-end version of the flagship was one of the very first phones with 8GB RAM. The device also offers 128GB storage. Software-wise, it offers a very light skin on top of Android called OxygenOS. It doesn’t change the look and feel of Google’s operating system much. In addition, it adds a few unique features and customization options.
The device features a dual-camera setup on the back. Furthermore, the device is encased in a mesmerizing full metal body that looks great. The OnePlus 5 comes Dahs Charge, the proprietary fast charging tech from the company. It gets the battery up to 100 percent in around 90 minutes and 0 to 60% in an impressive 30 minutes. The OnePlus 5 comes in Slate Gray and can be yours for $539.
Asus ZenFone AR
The ZenFone AR was unveiled back at CES 2017. It is also the very first device with 8 GB RAM. What sets this device apart is that it supports Tango (aka Arcore). That is Google’s augmented reality (AR) platform. Moreover, the device is equipped with a 23 MP primary shooter on the back along with sensors for motion tracking and a depth-sensing camera, all of which are required to run Tango applications.
The smartphone is also Daydream-ready. In short, it is a great choice for those who want to immerse themselves into the world of VR and AR. If thats not enough, the smartphone comes with a large 5.7-inch display with QHD resolution and is powered by the Snapdragon 821 chipset. The device retails for $700.
