Chinese company has rammed 6 gigabytes of RAM into the OnePlus 3

The OnePlus 3 has been pitted against the iPhone 6s, and, despite all those gigabytes of RAM, Redmond Pie reports that:

“The speed-test video makes seriously interesting watching for anyone who has been considering purchasing a OnePlus 3 device as their next smartphone. It almost seems like it actually struggles launching apps, which let’s be honest, is probably the one thing that most users spend their time actually doing. Not only that, but its memory management and multitasking capabilities appear to be almost non-existent, meaning that the OnePlus 3 had to actually re-launch the apps from a cold start as part of the second lap of the test, this despite having 6GB of RAM. The iPhone 6s on the other hand was able to gain a better advantage over the OnePlus 3 thanks to how it powerfully manages running apps in the background.”

What the heck could this Chinese contraption be using all that RAM for? It’s managed to lose a speed test against a phone that has ⅓ of the RAM and ½ the number of cores in its processor! Amazing!

But don’t take Redmond Pie’s word for it. Break out the popcorn and enjoy the video below!
