There are different comments eg
-storage type
-memeory type
-DSP
-API
-DSP
-NPU
-networking and connections etc
All these matters and make up a powerful Chip
The reason why smartphone makers go with qualcomm more than Mediatek is not just because of performance when it comes to CPUb or sustainability it's more of an all round safer bet for them and consumers

And qualcomm already has a name for theirselves as making flagship chips for years MediaTek just started catching up with the D9000 nd D8100

Peak performance is nice, but sustained gaming performance is as good as 865, while drawing more power. Phones using it may or may not be trash, but they could be much better had they used something like Dimensity 9000 or even 8100.

        What am saying is in 2022 12gigs RAM is enough for a smartphone for multitasking

          Rotciv Ikias, 02 May 2022Can u pls tell what ur doing with 16gb ram😂😂😂😂😂You can think of RAM as your pocket and your phone's main storage as your backpack. It's much faster to pull something out of your pocket than it is to pull something out from your backpack.
          When you turn on your phone, and open an app for the first time, your phone pulls the operating system (OS) and app's data from your phone's slower main storage and stores the bulk of that OS and app data in your phone's faster RAM so you can use different elements and features of the OS and app quickly.
          When you're finished with the app you're using, your phone keeps the app and whatever you were doing on it in your phone's RAM, even if you switch to another app.
          When you return to an app you used a while ago, it'll open right where you left off, as if you never even left the app, because it's been stored in your phone's RAM. Essentially, apps you used are kept running in the background while you use other apps.
          Switching between apps and picking up right where you left off is often called "multitasking." If a phone is said to multitask well, it's because it makes good use of RAM or simply has a ton of it.
          If a phone didn't have RAM, apps would fully close whenever you switch apps. That means apps would need to fully re-open, as if you opened them for the first time after turning on your phone, which causes a delay before you can use the app.
          Your phone's main slower storage could potentially keep your OS and used apps running in the background, but it's much, much slower than RAM. Your phone could have the fastest chip in the world and it would still feel slow without RAM.

            Rotciv Ikias, 02 May 2022Can u pls tell what ur doing with 16gb ram😂😂😂😂😂Android by itself doesn’t use large amounts of memory. In fact, a pure AOSP build of Android will utilise less than 500MB of RAM. But when the Google Mobile Services (GMS) and user-installed applications are added, the total memory usage will of course rise.

            If an app is using enormous amounts of memory and storage, it’s pretty much the developers fault and not the device itself unless the latter is already running out of memory. Apps like Facebook, Messenger and Snapchat are notorious examples of piss-poor coding and terrible QA. Having those apps installed has even been proven to degrade system performance and battery life.

But with virtual memory it allows a process to be executed that are not completely in the main memory. There are two implementations of virtual memory and these are 1.Demand Paging 2.Segmentation. In demand paging it uses Lazy Swapper where in pages are only loaded to the memory only when they are needed during program execution, in this technique you saved memory space. Thus, those devices that does not support virtual memory needs a bigger ram. Also, Android phones cannot support Virtual memory because its secondary storage are not that big enough to support it.

                Rotciv Ikias, 03 May 2022Beacuse those are race nd luxury cars which are fast enough... moreJava was the top choice for developing Android because it (Java) uses a “virtual machine” to compile the OS code to run on many devices and processor types — since Android was designed to run on devices with different hardware configurations from different manufacturers. iOS, on the other hand, is written in “Swift.”

                Due to how Java is configured, memory released by apps you close has to be recycled back to the device via a process known as Garbage Collection (GC). Unused memory (otherwise called Garbage) has to be cleaned and recycled to the system (via GC) so it can be used by other apps. Garbage collection is super effective for the smooth running of Android device but the problem is that the process itself needs sufficient amount of RAM.

                Garbage collection is a process that triggers the recycling of memory once an Android app is done using it.

                If the required amount of memory needed for GC isn’t available, processes slow down. This is why Android OEMs generally fit higher (or extra) amount of RAM on their devices so there can be sufficient memory for garbage collection. This explains why you see an Android device usually have twice the amount of RAM on iOS devices.

                Windows or iOS do not undergo garbage collection to recycle used memory back to the system. Due to the way these are built, they do not need to undergo “Garbage Collection” return used memory back to the device’s RAM. When an app is closed, the memory/data used by the app is RAM. Hence, no need for extra RAM for GC.

When you start a new app on Android it needs to occupy a portion of the memory. Simple apps and games will use a few hundred megabytes. More sophisticated games might use up to a gigabyte of RAM, and the most demanding games can use up to 1.5GB of RAM.

                  Desktops, laptops, and servers use external storage (hard drives, SSDs) as swap space. Android uses a slightly different technique. Instead of writing out the pages to storage, Android compresses the data and writes it back into RAM. This is known as zRAM, following the Unix/Linux tradition of using “z” to denote compression. If we assume a 50% compression ratio, 128KB of RAM can reduce to 64KB, freeing up 64KB. The Linux kernel sees zRAM exactly as it would see traditional swap space. The compressed memory isn’t directly readable, so if it is needed it must be uncompressed and copied back, just like traditional swapping-in.

                  However, swap space (especially zRAM) is also a limited resource. If Android runs out of swap space then it needs to become more aggressive and start culling apps already in memory. That means an app you wanted to return to may be forced to close, as Android must make room for the new app you want to start.

                  As you can see, the S21 Ultra offers an almost textbook example of memory management. As the amount of free RAM decreases, the amount of swap space used increases. With 12GB of RAM, the S21 Ultra was able to hold all the games in memory starting with Subway Surfers, then 1945 Air Force, right on through Minecraft, Elder Scrolls Blades, and finally Genshim Impact. No apps were killed off. To push the S21 Ultra to the brink, I started up Chrome and when I had opened 12 tabs and Chrome had used 2.2GB of memory, Android was finally forced to kill Minecraft. Quite impressive. A deeper analysis of what happened can be found in the video

                      12gb ram is more than enough(even with virtual ram added)


                      If u need 16gb of ram go buy a tablet, laptop or a gaming phone

                      It's not just all about the ram numbers a 12gb ram device can perform as good as a 18gb ram if the hardware technology behind is powerful (lpddr5 better than lpddr4) nd also optimization of the software and hardware

                      Ur comments are always about spec sheet numbers numbers numbers

                      It's not all about numbers bro
