The kernel is stored in a special type of compressed file that's extracted directly into RAM during the device power-on sequence. This reserved memory holds the kernel, drivers and kernel modules that control the hardware and room to cache data in and out of the kernel.A RAMdisk for virtual files: There are some folders and files in the system tree that aren't "real." They are pseudofiles written at boot and hold things like battery levels and CPU speed data. With Android, the whole /proc directory is one of these pseudofile systems. RAM is reserved so they have a place to live.Network radios: Data about your IMEI and radio settings are stored in NVRAM (Non-Volatile memory that's not erased when you power off your phone), but get transferred to RAM along with the software needed to support the modem when you first turn on your phone. Space is reserved to keep this all in memory.The GPU: The graphics adapter in your phone needs memory to operate. That's called VRAM, and our phones use integrated GPUs that have no stand-alone VRAM. System RAM is reserved for this.

I don't understand why nobody can they can't make a phone with a controller built in I don't get this, what do I need all this power for without being able to game with out dragging around a giant controller, I would rather have a moqi i7s with crap specs

God knows why a phone would need that much ram, screen size is quite big,bet it be Great for watching movies,but ram ,no phone needs that much ram surely 🙄

AnonD-961600, 01 Mar 2021First of all, it is because of the way the operating system... moreSadly, the vast majority of dumb ignorants haters will not understand this, I personally have mot haf a single iphone, ipaf or mac, but my son does, since 2013, and, all the devices he has had, (iphone 4, 5, 6, 7, X, 12, mac air) have been really good durable efficient ones, outstanding quality and durability, I like android just because of its well known flexibility and customization, so, in the end, apple products, beside their high price, are excellent in all regards, fo what they do really fine, always with less resources, efficiency at its best, again, I font like apple profucts myself, but it would be plain stupid to say that they are inferior or bad, comparing to android ones, they are very different

iOS memory compression is just straight up superior to Android, it compresses 7-8 times better than Android.

That's why it's always needed less RAM, Some Apps are 1/10 the size when App is minimised while in Android it's mostly 2 to 3 times less.
