RAM Storage: There are many controversies relating to ios vs android memory usage. Users also want to know the reason behind why is ios smoother than Android. As you all know, iPhones are much costlier compared to Android devices. So, the iPhones are worth its remarkable RAM storage. If the RAM of Android and iPhone same, the iPhone will operate faster than the Android phone.
Now, you must be eager to know why the Android needs plenty of Ram capacity compared to iPhone. So let’s discuss the answer. The main features which capture the RAM storage are the garbage collecting, App Control, User Interface, and Hardware.
The Reason Why iPhone Require Less RAM Storage Than Android Device
*/ Garbage Collection(GC)
First, we will compare the Garbage Collection in Android and Garbage Collection in iPhones. The Android devices need large space of memory for storing the garbage. The apps of Android works on Java program which makes garbage gathering. The garbage seizes and goes on occupying the memory of your Android device until it gets restricted. The memory of an Android device is not sufficient for a regular user of the devices. Hence, more than half of the area occupied with the garbage collection feature in Android. There are also some devices which don’t have expandable memory option, for that user this feature become a devil in their device.
The garbage collector browses the store to locate the memory which is free to use, but it is not a cheap method. It often lags the device in the procedure. However, iPhone doesn’t have this feature. It contains Automatic Reference Counting which is an advanced method of running Objective-C objects on iOS devices. ARC don’t manage reference cycles automatically. Effective cross-references can thus generate pauses and memory slips. The developer can handle the method to divide cycles by utilizing light sources.
*/ User Interface
Another major problem present in the Android devices is often slow down which is not exhibited by iPhones. The reason is that the iOS UI delivering occurs in a classify thread among real-time preference whereas, on Android, this befalls in the main thread with normal preference. As a result, some apps in Android interfere the processor supplies and damage UI communications, decoding in a detectable slowdown.
*/ App Control
The app control in iOS in more strict than Android devices. You can easily operate background process in Android. However, iOS stops the unwanted apps quickly. It only leaves the apps which play the songs in the background or related can be left. Hence, the iOS devices use less memory and also the battery usage. Android devices are weak in term of security as the app developers have full right to run background processes. You should be careful while downloading apps on Android devices.
Apple’s iOS are made to work on the hardware which is further produced and examined by Apple. The devices are collected by Apple’s production associates. In the case of Android, the level of energy is low as the software OS developers remain distributed from the hardware creators.
Now, I hope you are clear about the concept of RAM of Android and iOS. So, that is the reason behind ‘why many experts prefer iPhones other than Android devices.’ That is why Apple devices are costlier than Android. The Android devices are worth for the price and features.
