RAM is one of the key specifications we look at before buying a new phone. Phones with the best processors need at least 8GB RAM or more to deliver blazing fast performance to the users. We often multitask on our smartphones, be it gaming, viewing media or working on a spreadsheet, sometimes apps are left running in the background.

This necessitates the need to have more RAM in your device since RAM helps access data faster and allows you toggle between various apps running in the background.


With most medium-range devices having at least an 8GB RAM version, here we look at the best smartphones to buy with over 8GB RAM.
