The smartphone market is heating up and even as 2016 is coming to an end, there are new ‘superphones’ that are released every day.
Last year, 2 gigs of RAM on a phone was considered adequate but things have escalated to a whole new level. Now we have phones coming out with 4GB and some even have 6GB of RAM. Take a look at our top 7 picks of the best smartphones with 6GB RAM.
Xiaomi Mi Mix
This has to be the best-designed phone of 2016 and there are no words to describe the beauty of the Xiaomi Mi Mix. The phone’s first sale concluded recently and it was sold out in just 10 seconds. The Xiaomi Mi Mix is not all about beauty; it has some serious firepower under the hood.
Mi Mix is powered by the Snapdragon 821 along with a mammoth 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The near bezel-less display is the USP of the phone and it has been termed by some of the critics as the most innovative design of 2016. The phone is only available in limited numbers, so you better hurry if you want to get your hands on this one. You can always check out the other excellent phones Xiaomi have released.
Huawei Mate 9 Porsche Design
This is the latest phone on the list and it is from a manufacturer that may not be known to all. Huawei announced the latest in their Mate series of flagship phones and there were a lot of surprises. Indeed, the most striking of them all was the fact that the phone was designed by Porsche.
The dual-edge display along with the smooth curves reminds us of the Porsche 911. It has the brand new Kirin 960, which is supposedly better than all the chipsets on the market right now, and 6GB of RAM. Internal storage is massive at 256GB. The device will be available only from December, so you’ll have to wait a bit more. In the meantime, you can always check out other phones by Huawei.
OnePlus 3 was one of the first smartphones with 6GB RAM. That is what made it so special and the reason why it is still in great demand. The phone was a redefining moment for the company and they decided to make quite a few changes with this one.
The Sandstone finish at the rear was ditched for an aluminum body. This is quite slippery to hold on to, but the metal body gives the phone an unparalleled premium appeal. Get yourself the OnePlus 3 and things are now a lot easier thanks to the lack of the Invite System. It is also one of the cheapest smartphones with 6GB RAM, giving you another reason to try it out.
Oppo R9s Plus
Oppo phones are known for their massive front cameras that take splendid selfies and the Oppo R9s Plus is not different. It has a 16MP front camera with an f2.0 aperture that can capture some amazing shots, even in low-light situations.
The phone is also a great performer with the Snapdragon 653 and 6GB of RAM under the hood. The Oppo R9s Plus is expected to come out soon, but there are a lot of other choices from Oppo for all the selfie addicts out there. In the meantime, you can already get an Oppo R9s Plus case, just to be ready.
Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe ZS570KL
Asus completely changed the design of the Zenfone when they launched the Zenfone 3. This phone retained some of the design aspects of its predecessor while adding in some fresh elements. The phone looks really glossy thanks to the metal and glass build.
There are quite a few variants to choose from and the top-end model comes with the Snapdragon 821, 6GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. The Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe is one of the few smartphones with 6GB RAM that you can get your hands on right away.
ZTE Nubia Z11
ZTE phones are well known for their trademark home button that has red accents around it. The ZTE Nubia Z11 has it too and looks spectacular with the combination of gold and red. The Nubia logo is drool-worthy and you will want to get your hands on it as soon as you see it.
But don’t think this phone just about looks. The ZTE Nubia Z11 has the Snapdragon 820 under the hood along with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage. It is also one of the more affordable 6GB RAM smartphones, just a tad more expensive than the OnePlus 3.
Lenovo ZUK Z2 Pro
Lenovo partnered with ZUK to bring out devices powered by Cyanogen. That agreement was called off and the ZUK Z2 Pro comes with ZUI 2.0 atop Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. The phone’s home button doubles up as a fingerprint scanner which has a lot of useful functions like going back, deleting background apps and returning home.
Lenovo ZUK Z2 Pro also has some great hardware. There’s the usual Snapdragon 820 along with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of non-expandable storage. It is a great looking device that also performs really well. You can buy the ZUK Z2 Pro in two colors, Ceramic White and Titanium Black.
