Smartphones with 12GB RAM in the Philippines (2021)




A device’s RAM is one of the most important things to look out for in a phone, as it is in charge of storing short-term data. If your phone starts slowing down after opening several apps, it is a sign that your RAM is starting to fill up. So if you are a fan of multi-tasking in your phone, you should have enough RAM to back it up. Usually, 8GB is enough, but heavy users could benefit from a bigger capacity.
