    hello people! im going to buy a new phone this december. i have three choices: Nokia 7.1 plus(x7) pocophone F1, and xiaomi mi 8 lite. the mi 8 lite has snapdragon 660 "AIE" chip, is this a completely different new 660 or just the same with sort of software patch? what are the benefits of AIE? also the nokia x7 global with 4 ram has good price for specs, i read people saying that 6 ram offer saving opened apps in background without reloading, some says it gives better performance but same says 6 ram is just a "Psychological comfort" that its better like Huawei CEO so i got confused by this discrepancy. can anyone clear? and finally if you are familiar with both nokia x7 and pocophone f1, what are things better on nokia x7 than pocophone f1? these two are my top choices, also please tell if you have suggestion to buy this holiday, thank you!

    Having more RAM means better multitasking experience as apps load faster when they are kept in RAM.

    Unless you are a heavy gamers, 4GB RAM is enough for most of people. There are only a handful of apps that need to be opened all day like Facebook, messenger, Line... My phone with only 3GB RAM can hold a half dozen of apps and multitasking is pretty good.

    My other phone has 6GB of RAM, the average RAM usage is 3.7GB with Oreo. I never see that number going over 4GB. So maybe 6GB RAM does more for you than for the phone itself.

    Don't know if you knew this already, but Pocophone is actually Xiaomi, it's just a sub-brand they use in certain markets. Like Honor is to Huawei. The benefits of "AIE"? not a clue.

    Anyways, I'd buy a phone with 4GB LPDDR4 RAM rather than a phone with 6GB LPDDR3 as the LPDDR4 consumes less power, runs cooler and has twice the LPDDR3 I/O speed.
