phones with 6 GB RAM

No wonder when we hear about a device with 6 GB RAM, most of us think it must  be a laptop, however, phones with 6 GB RAM are here and they definitely do not look like a geeky device. In fact, all the 3 devices that are available in the market right now are really beautiful and powerful devices.  Le Max 2 and OnePlus 3 are already launched in India and Asus ZenFone Deluxe is expected to launch here by July. Let us have a loot and do a quick comparison between the three devices.

Le Max 2LeMax 2 : First one of the list to be announced from the list and to be launched in India is Le Max 2. It is an upgrade to the previous flagship of LeEco Le Max. It comes with a top of the line snapdragon 820 processor, 5.7″ 2K display along with a 21MP and 8MP camera combo.

LE Max 2 Design

Le Max 2 is housed in an ultra light uni-metal body casing and due to its almost bezel-less design, it feels much smaller and easier to hold than its competitors at the same size. It supports 4G dual sims and comes with 64 GB of internal storage along with  an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor located at the back.

LeEco started the trend of removing 3.5 MM audio jack from the devices with other like Moto Z  followed suit. LeEco Le Max 2 is priced at Rs. 27,999 and is available through and

OnePlus 3 also comes with Snapdragon 820 processor and  64 Gigs of internal storage. It has a 5.5″ Full HD AMOLED screen. This smartphone also is a dual sim device supporting 4G connectivity and comes in full metal body design. It has 16MP rear and 8MP front camera combo.

OnePlus 3 is priced at Rs. 27,999 or $399 and can be bought from its global site or Amazon in India.

Asus ZenFone 3 Deluxe is yet to be launched outside Taiwan however, we’ve heard that It will be hitting Indian shores in July 2016. This phone has been receiving rave reviews purely because of its premium looks and its 6 GB RAM.

ASUS ZenFone 3 DeluxeAsus ZenFone 3 Deluxe comes with a 5.70-inch display with a resolution of 1080 pixels by 1920 pixels and is powered by quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor . The phone packs 64GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 246GB via a microSD card.

While it is difficult to say which phone with 6 GB RAM performs the best. We all thought that more than 4 GB RAM would be an overkill, there is news that phones with 8 GB RAM are coming. It is only good if we are able to utilise so much power at our disposal. If there are convertible Laptops/Tablets that can house these devices and allows users to perform other functions that can replace laptops or other portable computers, then we can definitely feel the need and use of these super beefed up devices.

As of now in the app stores, there are hardly any applications that need 6 GB RAM on phones. While it is the human tendency in the case of hardware : “The More the better”. Not really sure if that is required at all. Do let us know your thoughts about these super powerful phones and the need for more and more RAM on phones.
