    Hi There,

    I am totally new to android and I would like to start from OnePlus 5T. I just wondering how much difference between 6G or 8G RAM? I occasionally do some gaming on my phone like 2k18, and mostly use some very basic apps.

    If I choose 6G RAM, do I need to close other apps before I run some large app? Or the OS can help me determine just like IOS?

    Thank you for the help!

    Today 6 GB are more than enough, you will not have problems, in the future you never know. For me storage is more important, 128 GB is great.
    For the price difference there is, if you can afford it choose the 8 GB / 128 GB version

    The real choice is 64 vs 128GB, performance difference 6 vs 8GB RAM is barely noticeable.

    Between 6 and 8 ... 6 is fine as well... however if you take storage into consideration then I would always suggest to go for 128 ... and that comes with 8 only ... :)

    For me it was only the storage. Coming from the One with 64 I wanted 128 so my choice fell on the 8gb model. There is no other difference

    Performance wise you would not notice much of a difference between the two versions. More than the RAM, the storage should be the deciding factor considering the fact that oneplus doesn't have a microSD slot.

    Like everyone said, storage is the only thing that matters, in this case.
    I went for the 6 / 64 version, as 64 GB is enough for me

    I agree with others it's the storage you need to decide on. ram is not really relevant as both are plenty
