2.this is the worst thing that could happen, the idea at the start was to compensate for the lack of ram on the 2-4gb game entry teles to contain low prices, now it is used as a marketing performance argument by stupid builders on high-end devices. Then buy an Xaomi Mi xx or another brand that already has it if you want it. The effects of this on the course term. (on high-end devices) 1-A user who uses 8-12 GB and + is anything but normal and the excess swap will only delay the crash due to full ram, it will not solve the problem of abnormal use as xx tabs in a browser or a buggy application. 2-manufacturers will do less and less optimization 3-developers too (and this is already the case) Currently there is a competing system whose very high-end and very expensive devices with only 4gb of ram work as well if not better than sn888 + android devices with 12g and + - it is impossible to achieve such a result in the market for android devices but there is still a lot to do.
Finally, you have on the Rog5 the possibility to enable zRAM, the 888 should still be powerful enough to compress / decompress the ram. but hey, in your case, like the virtual ram, I think it's going back to better jump, besides that your specific problem is not 100% identified on the ram
For me it seems to crash and restart the phone each time I launch Armory Crate, this is happening after the latest System update, as it was working fine the night before that. Even restoring to factory defaults didn't help. Seems only options for me is to either live with this 😅 or visit the service center
