To do what with? I dont say a lot of ram is bad, but does it have any benefit to an Android device?

What can it do better than something with 4 or 6GB ram?

at what stage does one say, let me go buy a gaming laptop, or desktop for the price of this,
It's cheaper than a iPhone 12 Pro etc.

Apps can stay in memory longer and don't have to refresh as much leading to better battery life? Que Bill Gates "640K RAM ought to be enough for anybody."

but for gaming, surely a normal mortal phone like a s9 or any other android phone will do the job well enough.
apple Isheep will buy any piece of nonsense the company makes, so the prices reflect that,

You can also use the Asus dock for your phone to game directly a 4k screen.
In essence your phone becomes your gaming console / PC.

this, so many ways to game on a big screen from your phone,
why would anybody buy an android phone with 18GB of Ram total overkill, and for what exactly?

probably costs like a Gaming laptop/Desktop anyway.

In other words, when Baxteen switches between Pokemon Go and PokeGenie or Pokemon Go and MyBroadband, his R1 Lv30 Bastiodon that he was camping on to wait for cool-down will still be there.

having fun being a salty sack of dogs breakfast you lazy cheater?



another problem with cheaters is they think just because its rank 1 its the correct mon to use in PVP.
fun fact, you actually want the 4/4/15 bastiadon at level 50 not the 0/15/14 or rank 1 it has more wins in open great league.
