Smartphones are getting bigger and more powerful day by day. There was a day when 512mb of RAM was considered to be a top-notch hardware component in phones but now that figure is nothing these days. 4GB RAM is a benchmark for high-end phones if your phone doesn’t feature 4GB RAM then it isn’t up to the mark, no matter how good the other hardware is. Here is a list of top smartphones that come with 4 gigs of RAM.
If you are wondering why there’s so much importance given to RAM, it is one of the important aspects for a high-end smartphone, especially for businessmen who multitask and switch between apps. The phones that we have listed below, are quite heavy on specs, and the 4GB RAM is a perfect booster for the performance.
