Although we have seen a few phones with 8 GB of RAM released this year, phones with 6GB of RAM are more common on the market. Paired with a high-end chipset such as the Snapdragon 835, these 6 GB RAM smartphones are capable of handling just about any task without an issue.

Phones with 6 GB RAM – what are your options? 

Huawei P20 Pro

 

The  Huawei P20 Pro may not be coming to the United States, but the rest of the world is in for a treat. This is, without a doubt, the best Huawei phone the company has produced so far, and the best Chinese Android phone ever made. The Huawei P20 Pro has a 6.1 inch display and a OLED panel. Yes, it does have a notch on top, but if you hate this current phone trend, the handset does allow you to turn it off in the setting menu so it looks more like a regular phone. Plus, it is one of the Huawei phones with 6GB of RAM.

The Huawei P20 Pro is the first smartphone with a triple rear camera setup. In addition to the 20MP monochrome sensor, the RGB sensor on the Pro goes up to a whopping 40MP, and is joined by the third sensor, an 8MP telephoto lens. The Pro also has a five-times hybrid zoom feature.

It has Huawei’s Kirin 970 processor, with its NPU chip that adds AI features, including ones that help improve taking pictures with their impressive cameras. The Huawei P20 Pro costs 900 euro (around $1100). There’s also the Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS variant of the P20 Pro that includes a in-screen fingerprint sensor, a 6-inch screen, and you can get one with a massive 512GB amount of onboard storage for  2095 euro ($2600). That’s the price that must be paid for truly the best Huawei phone ever released.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8

phones with 6 gb ram

The Galaxy Note 8 is currently one of the best phones with 6GB RAM on the market — in fact, it’s one of the best phones period. In addition to 6 GB of RAM, it also features the Snapdragon 835 or Exynos 8895 chipset, a large curved display with 18.5:9 aspect ratio, and the popular S Pen.

The new Note is also dust and water-resistant thanks to its IP68 rating and is the company’s first smartphone with a dual-camera setup. It has a metal frame and a glass back and features thin bezels around the screen, just like the Galaxy S8 series.

Despite the whole Note 7 fiasco, the smartphone is a hit among consumers. Thanks to the combination of great looks, high-end specs, and a bezel-less design, it has proven to be a lot more popular than its predecessor. The only problem is that the phablet is super-expensive, as the unlocked version goes for $930.

Specs

  • 6.3-inch Super AMOLED display with 2960 x 1440 resolution, 521 ppi
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 835/Exynos 8895 processor — depending on the market
  • 6 GB of RAM
  • 64/128/256 GB of on-board storage, microSD expansion up to 256 GB
  • Dual 12 MP rear cameras, 8 MP front camera
  • Non-removable 3,300 mAh battery
  • Android 7.1.1 Nougat

The OnePlus 5T is still a solid smartphone by today’s standards, but that’s not stopping OnePlus from pushing the smartphone boundaries even further. The OnePlus 6 is all about refinement.

OnePlus introduced an all-new, all-glass design with the OnePlus 6. The back is sleek — almost resembling the Galaxy S9 — and the front houses the 6.28-inch AMOLED display. Yes, there’s a notch, but you can basically turn it off in the settings menu.

This phone also has the latest and greatest specs available: a Snapdragon 845 SoC, 6GB of RAM (up to 8GB in some modes), and up to 256GB of storage. The cameras have been improved this time around too. It comes with dual 16 and 20MP sensors around back with f/1.7 apertures, along with a 19-percent larger pixel size than the 5T. There are also slow-motion video modes that allow for 720p footage at 480fps and 1080p at 240fps. You can also shoot 4K video at 60fps.

Also, this is probably one of the first devices that will receive Android P when it launches. For all you folks who aren’t a fan of the Pixel but still want quick updates, the OnePlus 6 may be just for you.

Honor 10

Honor 10 notch - Honor 10 Price - Honor 10 availability
The Honor 10 is now launching worldwide, making for a short time between April’s Chinese launch and the global launch. The Honor 10’s got plenty of features worth shouting about, certainly qualifying as a flagship in our book. There’s that nimble Kirin 970 processor with neural processing unit (NPU) smarts, either 4GB or 6GB of RAM, a 24MP and 16MP dual camera combination, a 24MP selfie snapper, and those visually striking color options. There’s also its 5.84-inch LCD display with a resolution of of 2,280 x 1080, and its 3,400mAh battery.
