This is how much better an 8GB  OnePlus 5 is

The OnePlus 5 has a lot going for it, if you do manage to escape or forgive some of its flaws. In terms of specs, save for the screen, it pretty much trumps most flagships this year. But then OnePlus went above and beyond the call of duty and offered one of the very few and first smartphones with a whopping 8 GB of RAM. But what does this $60 addition to your bill really give you? Someone finally made an unscientific test to find out.

Nexus 5X successfully upgraded with 4 GB of RAM

Nexus 5X successfully upgraded with 4 GB of RAM

Flagship smartphones seem to be stuck at 4 GB of RAM, save for a few exceptions, but not all smartphones, even Google's once prized Nexus line, can boast of that much. Specifically, the Nexus 5X seemed stuck at a time when nobody needed more than 2 GB of RAM. Apparently, the device's hardware could have actually gone with more, like 2 GB more. And someone actually did, with a little help from a rather helpful Chinese repair shop.

This is how much a Galaxy S8+ with 6GB RAM could cost

This is how much a Galaxy S8+ with 6GB RAM could cost

One of the biggest disappointments with the Galaxy S8 and S8+ was that it didn't seem to fully exploit all the power that it packed. In particular, some of its features, specifically Samsung DeX, would have benefited from more RAM. Instead, Samsung chose to play it safe and stick to conventions that is almost 2 years old by now. There have, indeed, been rumors of a 6 GB RAM model and that might still be true. You might not, however, want to buy one when you hear how much it'll cost.

Huawei P10 Plus, Vernee Apollo 2 bring 8GB RAM to MWC 2017

Huawei P10 Plus, Vernee Apollo 2 bring 8GB RAM to MWC 2017

It feels only like yesterday when flagship smartphones only had 2 or at most 3 GB of RAM inside. Actually, that was just 2 or so years ago. But now some, though not all, manufacturers are starting to play around with 6 GB of memory. And at MWC 2017 in a few weeks, there will be even those that will flaunt 8 GB of RAM. Smartphone maker Vernee has just officially confirmed that its Apollo 2 will indeed sport such a configuration. But it won’t be alone, as Huawei is also expected to show off something along those lines as well.

Samsung Chromebook Pro could have insane 8 or 16 GB RAM

Samsung Chromebook Pro could have insane 8 or 16 GB RAM

It seems that Samsung will be shattering preconceived notions of what a Chromebook is. Back at CES last month, Samsung unveiled two Chromebook models, the Chromebook Plus and the Chromebook Pro, that defied the usual definition, sporting rather high end specs and, for the first time in the device category, a stylus. Now it seems that the Chromebook Pro, which has yet to get a launch date, might take things even higher. A source code change in Chromium lays the foundations for a Chromebook Pro with 8 or even 16 GB of RAM in the near future.

2017 Ram Power Wagon First Drive: Heavy-duty off-road apocalypse escape vehicle

The 2017 Ram Power Wagon is a full-size pickup that dares to answer the question, 'what would you use to tow your house into the middle of the desert during a zombie apocalypse?' After spending a full day flogging the P-Wagon on the hot sands an hour outside of Las Vegas, I can comfortably report that it takes a special kind of product planning bravery to create a heavy-duty truck capable of bludgeoning any obstacle in its path - undead or otherwise - on its way to saving your delicious brain-bacon from flesh-eating creeps.

2017 MacBook Pro might finally have 32 GB of RAM

MacBook Pro owners might have something to really look forward to this year if Ming-Chi Kuo is on the mark. The renowned analyst from KGI is predicting that this year’s generation of MacBook Pros will finally break through the 16 GB RAM limit. While 32 GB on a “professional” computer might seem normal these days, that has actually become a sore topic with the late 2016 models as Apple refused to go any further, sacrificing power for the sake of longer battery life and portability.

Late 2016 MacBook Pro capped at 16GB RAM because batteries

Apple’s MacBooks, be they the Pro, normal, or Air variety, have always been praised for their slim and light designs, relatively speaking. But as computing hardware gets more powerful, something will eventually have to give. In this year’s case, apparently that is the MacBook Pro’s RAM that was the scapegoat. Apple has taken flak for the laptop’s 16 GB RAM limit, which power users have analyzed and criticized to no end. This has lead Apple SVP for Worldwide Marketing Phil Schiller to take the mic to defend the decision, which basically boils down to compromising for better battery life.

Samsung’s 8 GB LPDDR4 DRAM chips are ready to invade mobile

It’s almost unbelievable that, just three years ago, we were still discussing the future benefits of the then new 64-bit mobile processors. But by next year, we might already be seeing smartphones and tablets with a whopping 8 GB of RAM inside. That will be thanks in no small part to Samsung’s new silicon that packs 8 GB of DRAM in a single tiny package, utilizes the fastest LPDDR4 technology, and boasts of the space and energy savings of a 10 nm process.
