Dynamic RAM Expansion is a very useful feature. You must have heard the term ‘Virtual RAM’ so many times in the past few months.
What is virtual ram? how does it work?
It is very simple. Virtual RAM is a concept like ‘Virtual Memory’ that’s used in PCs. If the smartphone demands, it can borrow additional space from storage and allot it to RAM, to ensure a seamless performance. In other words, the smartphone will borrow some storage space and use it for RAM functions.
For example, if your phone has 128GB of storage and 8GB of RAM, it will use 3GB out of 128GB and increase the Ram from 8GB to 11GB.
One tap and it will spring to action without the usual load times. This helps give an impression of a speedy experience. By using virtual RAM, the phone can keep your most-used apps always ready in the background so you don’t waste time waiting for it to launch.
