Best 6GB RAM Mobile Phones in India

Updated on 16-Sep-2023

Smartphones in 2023 are pumping up their phones with ridiculous amounts of RAM – some even going up to 12 or 16 GB. It is hard to believe that just about a decade ago, phones used to come equipped with merely 512 MB or 1 GB RAM. Cut to 2023, 3 to 4 GB of RAM is often considered the bare minimum on budget phones. How much RAM you require on your smartphone depends on your use case. If you rarely multitask or use intensive apps, then you don’t need an abundance of RAM, however, if you are a power user, at least 6 GB RAM is a safe bet. Lack of enough RAM can cause your device to start shutting down older apps in its memory, meaning if you want to go back to an app you used some time ago – chances are, it may have shut down to make space for newer apps. There are multiple phones on the market with 6 GB RAM. The best one is, undoubtedly, the Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max and you’ve also got other options across budgets including the iPhone 14, Google Pixel 6a, Redmi K50i, Redmi Note 12 Pro, POCO X5 Pro, iQOO Z7, and Realme 10 Pro. So, if you’re looking for a multitasking champ, these are some good options to consider.

PROS:
  • Smooth Dynamic Island animations, Excellent performance, Reliable and versatile camera system, Good battery life, Bright display
CONS:
  • Still an incremental upgrade, No USB-C charging, Quite heavy, Only 20 W charging

The Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max is the best smartphone you can get with 6 GB of RAM. Apple usually doesn’t disclose the capacity and type of RAM used by their phones, but teardowns of the iPhone 14 Pro Max indicate that the device comes packing 6 GB of LPDDR5 RAM. iOS apps are built only for iPhones, unlike Android apps that are built for multiple devices from different OEMs. Therefore, even with lower RAM than other flagship Android phones on the market, iPhones are able to utilise the available RAM better. It’s no doubt that the iPhone 14 Pro Max is one of the most powerful smartphones on the market right now due to its software and hardware optimisations and the powerful A16 Bionic SoC, making this an easy recommendation for us that tops our list.

Screen Size: 6.1u0022
Rear camera : 12 MP
Storage: 128GB
Battery capacity: 3279 (mAh)
PROS:
  • Pocketable form factor, Looks premium, Good cameras
CONS:
  • No A16 Bionic SoC, Lacks fast refresh-rate display, No telephoto lens

The Apple iPhone 14 also comes packing 6 GB of RAM like its older sibling, however, according to rumours floating around the tech community, this may be LPDDR4X RAM rather than the faster LPDDR5 RAM used on the Pro models. Nevertheless, the phone is still one of the greatest in the market at multitasking without a hitch with minimal lag and stutter. The phone is powered by the older-generation Apple A15 Bionic chipset. This is a 5 nm processor that is still one of the most powerful ones on the market. So, if you’re a power user, looking for a phone capable of multitasking, gaming, and executing almost every possible task you can think of, the iPhone 14 is no slouch.

Google Pixel 6a

PROS:
  • Stock Android experience, Solid battery life, Reliable camera system
CONS:
  • Low internal storage, no expansion, No wireless charging, 60 Hz refresh rate is dated

The Google Pixel 6a is a great choice for those who prefer a clean UI since it comes with Stock Android experience. The phone houses Google’s 5 nm Tensor chipset paired with 6 GB of LPDDR5 RAM. In our experience with the smartphone, we found that it performs very well as a daily driver. It can carry out multitasking without any hitches or forced app shutdowns. The phone’s chip performs well in benchmarks but it does not match up to the performance of the iPhone SE (2022) which comes with 4 GB RAM. Still, the multitasking abilities would be slightly better than the iPhone SE. We got a decent score of 691272 in AnTuTu and 9758 in PCMark Work. The phone is also capable of playing intensive shooter games such as Call of Duty: Mobile at 60 fps without frame drops for a round or two. Post that, it can get a bit hot and the CPU also throttles a bit, so keep that in mind.

PROS:

If you want one of the best mid-range performers that also offers the best bang for your buck, there’s no phone you should consider other than the Redmi K50i 5G. The phone leaves its competition in the dust when it comes to raw performance. It sports the MediaTek Dimensity 8100 chipset which is a flagship-grade chipset under ₹25,000. The phone offers 6 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 128 GB UFS 3.1 storage on the base variant. The RAM standard is the same as the iPhone 14 Pro Max, which is excellent at this price. In fact, you can get your hands on the 6 GB variant of this phone for just ₹21,000. In our testing, the Redmi K50i powered through intensive games such as Call of Duty: Mobile, Apex Legends, and Genshin Impact without a hitch. The phone also proved its mettle by beating out competitors with the Snapdragon 870 and Snapdragon 778G processors with ease. One of the fastest Android phones you can buy on a budget.

Battery capacity: 4020 (mAh)

The Motorola Moto Edge 30 comes packing 6/8 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 128 GB internal storage, making it excellent for multitasking and daily usage. It houses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G+ processor. While this SoC isn’t as powerful as the Redmi K50i’s Dimensity 8100 chipset, it does significantly better compared to the regular Snapdragon 778G in benchmarks. While the POCO X5 Pro (with the regular Snapdragon 778G processor) scored nearly 520K in AnTuTu, the Moto Edge 30 raced ahead with a score of almost 600K. We saw the Moto Edge 30 perform consistently better in other benchmarks such as GeekBench and PCMark Work as well indicating that this processor will be able to do more heavy lifting than the non-Plus variant. So, multitasking should also be a breeze with this phone.

PROS:

If you’re a mobile gamer, the POCO X5 Pro is a very good option with 6 GB RAM. The phone performs admirably when gaming with minimal heat and smooth frame rates. The only game where we saw it struggle a bit was Genshin Impact where even high-end phones suffer. The phone houses the reliable Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G processor with 6 GB LPDDR4X RAM on the base variant. While we tested the 8 GB RAM variant, the 6 GB variant should also perform sufficiently well when it comes to multitasking since we faced absolutely no issues with our review unit. The phone only lagged behind the Redmi K50i and Moto Edge 30 in our tests that houses the Dimensity 8100 SoC and Snapdragon 778G+ SoC respectively.

Battery capacity: 5000 (mAh)

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 Pro 5G is one of the better mid-range smartphones in India at the moment. It comes with 6 GB of LPDDR4X RAM, but there’s an 8 GB version as well that you can opt for. This isn’t the latest memory standard, but it is still plenty fast for the price. You can easily multitask and run intensive tasks as well with minimal lag. Although, at 6 GB of LPDDR4X RAM, you may face the issues of apps shutting down in the background when you open too many at once, but you can still run approximately 5-6 apps at the same time with ease. This RAM is paired with 128 GB of UFS 2.2 storage, which is pretty standard at this price. You’ve got the MediaTek Dimensity 1080 SoC that takes care of all the processing needs which is built on the 6 nm process. With this processor, you can expect AnTuTu scores of 450K+, which is decent at this price.

PROS:
  • Good design with bezel-less look, Great performer, Fast charging, Responsive display
CONS:
  • Plenty of bloatware, Sub-par build quality, Battery backup is disappointing

Featuring a minimalist yet classy design, the Realme 10 Pro 5G packs 6 GB of LPDDR4X RAM on its base variant with 128 GB of UFS 2.2 storage. This is identical to the Redmi Note 12 Pro, however, on the Realme 10 Pro, you get the Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 SoC instead. The Dimensity 1080 is a slightly superior processor in terms of raw power and shows up with a higher AnTuTu score as well compared to the 695 which is why the Realme 10 Pro is behind the Redmi Note 12 Pro 5G on this list. With this phone, you also get dual 5G+5G support as well as a 120 Hz FHD+ display with extremely slim bezels. So, if you want a good-looking phone with decent power and 6 GB RAM, go for the Realme 10 Pro.

PROS:
  • Slim and light form factor, Nice crisp AMOLED display, Good selfie camera, Good performance and battery backup
CONS:

The iQOO Z7 5G is quite a powerful device at its current selling price. It features the MediaTek Dimensity 920 SoC which performs extremely well in most scenarios. The processor outputs really good numbers in benchmarks such as GeekBench and PCMark Work. You get 6 GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 128 GB of UFS 2.2 storage on the base variant of the device. iQOO has also added Extended RAM 3.0, so your 6 GB RAM phone will get an additional 6 GB of virtual RAM that has been partitioned from your internal storage. While this memory isn’t as fast as real RAM, it does help in multitasking. iQOO says the phone can keep up to 27 apps open and running in the background. The phone is geared towards gamers and shows decent performance in intensive games such as Asphalt 9 and Call of Duty: Mobile with barely any lag or frame drops.
