    It's nothing secret that op3 has sever ram management issue in spite of 6gb of ram.
    Pre-requisite u need root acess
    Steps-1. Download build prop editor
    2.search for ro.sys.fw
    3.then select it by pressing on it and when u get a pop up change value to 42 and save it
    4.a pop up appears asking for root acess grant it

    Ash from YouTube channel c4etech
    Has made a video tutorial so if u can't understand this check it out

    But I do no how it affects battery and overall performance of the phone so do it at your own rist

    6GB oft RAM

    One thing is more apps in RAM
    The other is larger apps in RAM
    And at least a combination oft both

    That is why 6GB is not that useless as it sounds

    There are a lot oft so called specialists in the world..., I do not trust many of them as you do not know anything about their interests etc and who pays them for what purpose, believe me buy something and try if it fits your needs and judge by your experience vor else we would all live in the same house, kiss the same boy or girl.....

    Another reason for benefitting from 6GB?

    A lot of apps waste a lot of RAM, ..., sorry developers... ;-)
    I think ... Shit happens ;-)

    All the likes from the negative forum crew. Anyone w/ half a brain knows they will soon be able to load a ROM that will bypass Oxygen settings. Carl has already said as much in his tweets. Keep on hatin'

    The build.prop line that is mentioned in the XDA post, please take a second to read it first.

    Exactly, I am totally agree with u.With this poor ram management.Its far better to provide a 4gb ram phone with more battery and cut short the price.We are paying for a 6gb phone and still dont getting the advantage of 6gb ram.Its really not good.

    It's a good thing we have half a brain rather than miniscule pea you have constantly demonstrated
    What I posted was recapping what he said and what they have done.
    Carl said, LOL. Instead of being a mindless automaton, why don't you just acknowledge the fact that they dropped one ...again.

    Well, the build.prop mod does seem to have a beneficial effect. Found this comparison that used a modded phone. No reloading of huge apps. :)
