79% of millennial respondents of a CMR Mobile Industry Consumer Insights survey claimed that RAM is an integral feature when buying smartphones. Similarly, battery backup is another additional aspect that many owners compare before purchasing such devices.
RAM, also termed memory, is where information is stored in your smartphone when not currently in use. Such information might need to be pulled in in some time. RAM is not the same as internal storage as the former is significantly faster.
It means that the more information that you can store in your smartphone, there will be substantially higher ease of usage. To that end, a 6GB RAM mobile may serve the purpose quite well.
How does RAM function?
Consider that you are watching a web series, and in the meantime, a call comes. While you attend the call, the streaming content remains loaded in the RAM. The online video can be instantaneously accessed once you are done with the call. The web series would pop right back up exactly from the point where you left off. Neither would you have to start from the beginning, nor do you need to reload the entire application from scratch.
Battery backup in smartphones
When a video is streaming by wi-fi or cellular data, the consumption of the battery will be much more than when the same content is stored on the phone. A standard 4000mAh battery in your smartphone can prove to be a dependable performer in terms of battery life. It can be understood that the streaming of online video itself is not dependent on battery performance.
Hence, if there were heavy consumption of online videos, the smartphone battery would deplete faster. Even then, one may put the smartphone in charge or use a power bank. It would ensure that online video streaming proceeds sans any glitch.
Here are some of the budget mobile phones with decent RAM capacity that can be perfect for online video streaming –
