Note 3: New RAM expansion technology – Expansion from 4 GB to up to 7 GB
Aside from operating system upgrades, RAM expansion technology is by no means useless. “Smartphones today are the inseparable companions of our lives, covering almost everything from communication, photography and payments to games and social media, and providing a seamless connectivity experience.” said David Xu, Blackview’s CEO. “However, as applications become more memory intensive and users install more applications on their smartphones, it is inevitable that mobile phones, especially those with low RAM, will slow down and fail to cope with heavy multitasking. “Blackview is always committed to upgrading the user-centric experience, which is why we’ve put a lot into the R&D of RAM expansion, hoping our users will make the most of their Blackview smartphones and enjoy their Smart Life to the fullest.”
Thanks to the RAM extension that essentially enlarges the 4 GB of RAM to 7 GB, users can expect improved performance and smoothness. Ή of course multitasking power from expanded RAM, which supports upgraded data processing capability. When loading large-scale 3D games, running multiple applications in the background at the same time, switching between multiple applications to browse social media streams, exchange messages with friends, or edit demanding videos is fast and fluid without stuttering or lag.
In addition, according to Blackview Official, the Blackview BV4900 Pro also supports adjusting the volume of RAM expansion. You can configure it from 1 GB up to 3 GB. RAM expansion is open by default, and the default amount of RAM is the perfect place to strike a balance between speed and fluidity based on Blackview Lab tests. Light users, who have access to a limited set of mobile services or functions, can reduce or discard the amount of expanded RAM, as the larger the expansion, the longer the data processing time. Heavy users can of course drag it to the maximum for preference. See these simple steps below to fully unlock the feature:
- Step 1: Open [Settings-About phone]Click on [RAM]enter [Memory expansion]
- Step 2: Select the expansion size as required and restart the phone
- Step 3: Open “About Phone” to find the expanded RAM in the RAM section
