It's not like to be useful enough for futureproofing though, as most Android phones will only get 2 or 3 major OS upgrades at most.

To 56 should be the minimum spag 512 should be the Mid range and 1TB should be the top and to phone's WI more phone companies are not topping out their phones at 1TB makes no sense 12 years ago they were making 1TB but they were special order now with the size of mobile games coming one terrabyte should be a normal preference

Imagine spending $1000 just to play cheap pay-to-win games. For half the price you can get a console. Or just save up for a 3090.

These can go upto 6 or 8 gb or something. They are loaded into ram so they make use of the huge ram size. Also the android system will put whatever it can put into the free ram for faster access later.

I know its a gaming phone but maybe a 7000 or more cell would be interesting along with better charging and cameras.

Davy Jones, 09 Feb 2021I think the strix version may come with SD 870You're probably right but I'm hoping it's the Dimensity 1200 instead because of the integrated modem (which the 870 does not have one). Because of that, it will either not have the jack or the Strix version will have a smaller battery to compensate the modem...

All flagship phones should have not less than 16GB ram but many of them still have 8GB ram. 8GB ram is for midrange phones. 4GB ram is the perfect minimum. Avoid really cheap phones with useless hardware. It is 2021 finally. Phone companies should release serious phones and not jokes.
