    6gb ram has 64gb storage and 8gb has 128gb. I chose 128gb. I think that along is worth it for extra $60.

    Yeah it's unlikely you'll notice the difference in RAM, the storage difference is far more important IRL.

    The 8 GB RAM is really just for the "spec whores" among us.

    Honestly I got the 6GB/64GB version and have been very happy with it. Most of my stuff is on the cloud anyway so I don't really have a need for the extra storage and the speed has been blazing on my 6GB of RAM so no worries there.

    8 gb hands down. It's a no brainer for me, since the OP5 doesnt have external storage, so 128 gb storage is must for me.
    Also thw fact that shelling out about $60 for double storage and 2 gb more ram is definitely worth it.

    8 gb may lok like overkill now, but it would make the phone futureproof for atleast the next 3 years.

    All depends on your requirements for the device. Do you think you'll get close to filling the smaller storage? Are you the kind of person who leaves loads of apps open and needs them to be how you left them when you get back to them? Do you think you might regret getting the cheaper device a few months down the line?

    Really, only you know how you use your device. Use your gut.

    Welcome to AndroidCentral @0mer ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

    For me, it's not about the 6GB or 8GB RAM. It's more about the storage capacity that you get with the phone. The 128gb will certainly come in handy if you love taking videos and playing games.

    However, if you are a fairly average user and don't heavily rely on your phone. The 6GB / 64GB version will be absolutely perfect. Nothing wrong with it. AND you will save over 50 bucks.

    Hope this helps.

    You should definitely get the 8GB version and keep yourself future proof. I saw reviews from android central and 8GB version is blazing fast with almost zero app reloads while multitasking

    6gb ram has 64gb storage and 8gb has 128gb. I chose 128gb. I think that along is worth it for extra $60.
    I think 6gb and 64gb might be good for me but I think that if I buy shouldn't I add the extra 60$ and get something that will stay even if I download 20 movies or I don't know what?

    Yeah it's unlikely you'll notice the difference in RAM, the storage difference is far more important IRL.

    The 8 GB RAM is really just for the "spec whores" among us.
    I think I might love it better if I have 8gb ram in my phone and not 6 because its not that different in price but, there's problem with shipping and I can get the 6gb faster so don't know what to do

    if you need the memory, spend the extra $60
    its like, I think 64gb can be great for me but not sure about the ram and the futureproof

    double the space and an extra 2gb for 60, no brainier
    alrighty, thnx

    I think even someone who will run all his apps in the background and use them will find the 6gb good for him but the future proof and the shipping is the only things I think about

    Hello there
    I can tell I'm between the love taking videos and playing games and between the average user, sometimes I do find myself seeking for more storage and sometimes I find it enough :P
    thank you

    Next question will be "should I get a S8 instead?" :O
    nah the s8 is too breakable for me
    I will find myself without phone after 1 day :P
    and I hear that its battery life pretty bad so..

    You should definitely get the 8GB version and keep yourself future proof. I saw reviews from android central and 8GB version is blazing fast with almost zero app reloads while multitasking
    yea I saw it, but if I get the op5 I gotta wait some weeks, the price in my country is like 125$ more than its normal price and It wont come with the dash charge because if I want it I got to pay like 300$ more than the regular price..(they dont give it because its not the official warranty and its way cheaper than my country prices :\)
    I can get the 6gb one in like 90$ more than the regular price but from abroad(VAT and ****) and it will come with the dash and all that stuff...
    RIP Prices and warranty haha :P
    Definitely 8 gb is better with double storage

    I think that 8 gb is too overkill for a smartphone. The new version of android is optimized very well and it runs smooth even on 4GB of memory, but at the end its our choice which variant to buy. Buying a 8 GB variant will ensure you that you will receive all the future update without any hassle and you need not to worry about your getting slow due to new update because your phome will be having enough memory.

    Go for the highest storage & ram as it does fill up very quickly with so many programs and data

    If you've decided you want the 8/128 version, and have the cash, I'd wait for that rather than settling (#neversettle lol).

    To paraphrase Shigeru Miyamoto, a delayed phone may eventually be great, but a rushed phone will be forever disappointing.

    if you have the cash, go for the best version you can get. it'll end up lasting the longest and would have most resale value

    It's all comes down to your internal storage requirements as this phone doesn't have external storage option. Is 64 GB memory good for you, if yes, go for 6gb one, if no, go for 8 gb one.

    Is there any reference between the 6/8gb besides the memory size? For example battery life or performance?

    It all depends on your end-purpose. You see, a 3GB Ram performs as good as a 6GB phone, well, at least in terms of running apps smoothly. A 6GB One Plus 5 is good enough, but spending an extra $60 for a whopping 8GB isn't a bad deal anyways. Over the last few years, Android manufacturers have been boasting about RAM, and ot be honest, RAM is far more important than storage. Storage can be improved by adding an SD card, or backing up your data to the cloud using Dropbox or Google Drive, but with an 8GB RAM and 128 GB storage option, I hardly doubt anyone's data is going to fill up One Plus 5's capacity. Nevertheless, go for an 8GB version.

    6gb or 8gb ? Here the speed in 8gb OP5 is quite negligible comparing 6gb OP5. Here wat matters is the storage options u get. For 6gb u get 64gb storage , whereas for 8gb u get 128gb storage. If u don't mind 64 gjg storage ur good to go ! If u really u need more storage the 8gb / 128gb is worth the upgrade.

    Get the 8GB version.

    Not for the RAM, but for the storage.

    Having 128GB of ultrafast storage for not a heap more is a no-brainer IMO.
