    Hy guys,

    I'm writing because I bought the 16gb version since officially only this is available here and my last.

    I read - and bought the phone because of that - that the 2gb memory won't affect the speed and performance.

    My last phone was a Nexus 5 with 2gb of ram and it was more than enough - even with multiple processes I always had more than 1gb of ram.

    Since I switched I'm using the same apps at the same time and I noticed that - as you can see on the picture - I only have like 300mb of ram left. I think it's quite a big difference. Is it only me or others too? I think this could affect the performance since apps have to restart constantly.

    Any ideas or suggestions?

    The QHD screen uses 600mb of RAM as video RAM this is compared with 200-300mb for an HD screen so you're going to have less free RAM overall. If you get the app Kcontrol and you're rooted you can see this.

    Max free RAM I can get after killing all apps is 350-400. Worst I've seen it is down at 100 (using Nova Launcher).

    My phone is rooted and Google free. I don't use Google services so their apps have no place on my phone. No social media either. Phone, sms, email, Internet, TV. Bing and DDG for search. Aosp browser. All I require.

    So any experience since we posted some stuff here?

    I'm thinking if should I get a 32gb version only because of the ram - I'm still afraid that all of my apps are closed when I put them to the background since there is literally no memory left because of the system (takes 1,5gb)

    Should I think about that or it won't make any difference?

    My phone with about 15 apps open.

    I think you will be okay with the 2GB variant. Spend the extra money on a nice screen protector or wireless charging back/station.

    I stopped paying attention to this a while back and it's been discussed/posted that you shouldn't really worry about it and let android do its thing.
