I'm no expert, and perhaps someone else will have better advice. But the extra GB of ram is always going to make the thing run faster. Whether it's worth the cost to you is another thing. I would think its the same principle that we apply to PC's. Basically, if you're doing graphic heavy stuff on it, or a huge amount of multitasking then you'll need more ram. (not sure about the latter, in an Android system, though) So, if you play games that use a lot of graphics, or anything else that uses a lot of graphics, then you'll need the extra ram. I don't play many games, so for me, I think that 512mb is ok and 1GB would be plenty.
Hi guys I'm looking for some advice.
I am definitely set on getting either the umi x2 or the jiayu g4. However I am wondering:
1. Talking mainly about the g4, Is 2gb of ram really necessary/ lany better than 1gg (possibly because most people never use that much or whatever)? What change will the extra 1gb of ram make to the phone or is it just a fad to make you pay more for the more expensive model. If does make a difference, is it worth the extra amount of money you would have to pay, since that looks like the only thing that is any better about the more expensive version as internal size is not an issue for me.
2. I see a lot of people split over the x2 and the g4 but this seems to be a only due to the recent delays the g4 is undergoing. Since, time is not a problem for me but money is more so, which would be the one you guys would suggest? Is the extra price for the x2 worth it, because is can't see that many advantages it has over the g4 (1080p screen ect) that justify the price (please let me know if I'm wrong on this). I know it is more of an opinion and there is already a topic poll on this, but I wanted to know your opinions in terms of their prices (mainly), in light of the g4 delays and the sudden large interest in the x2 etc.
3. Finally, which is probably the most likely to have custom rom's developed for because I normally hate stock roms?
Thanks for helping guys
I can't speak to your second question, but there is a comparison tool on gizchina now, so you can put the two phones side by side to find any differences. http://www.gizchina....chinese-phones/
Regarding roms my hunch is, in China, there will be custom rom's for both, . So, if you know where to look and how to deal with a Chinese rom you should be ok. (like you'll need to know how to add an English keyboard to start off). But, if you want a rom that is already sorted for an English user, your best bet would be to follow what Tillaz and Kyan are doing. Development is a hobby/passion for the both of them, so they are bound to customize and thus share, any work they do on the phone they end up buying
Hope that helps...
