    2 XL is a huge brick whilst comparing 6s. 6s is a beautiful and elegant device.

    Yes, the size is larger. I am not comparing that. I am comparing speed, as we were discussing. We were not discussing the device itself. We were talking about the speed of Android vs. IOS.

    I don't use animation on either OS, so I felt Android to be 0.1% faster and 20-30% cheaper than Android. So, its a win in my book. iOS with animation certainly feels smooth but I get headaches looking at parallax effects or animation effects on both iOS and Win 10.

    That gives off a different meaning although you can use because NBR isn't PG rated.:D

    I would say a minimum of 4GB ram would be the minimal for an average user. For the multi tasker, 6GB.

    I've experienced where apps don't load up due to ram being held up by a lot of apps running in the background.

    I don't know....I have a s9 plus and 6gb of ram....it always says I have 2gb free....so if you never want to reload I say 12gb is the minimum...leaving you with 8gb free ram

    Well, I suggest you use adb to remove Samsung Exp and other bloatwares to make OS optimised. I used devbase ROM (Stock Oreo) on dad's S7 after the phone was infected by script based malwares, I don't know how it happened but I hard reset everything and used adb and app inspector to remove unwanted package and installed Google Phone,Contacts and what not and set them to default apps. Afterwards, I used uninstall cmds to remove Samsung Bloatware, now 20% drain on standby overnight is eliminated and battery life is good.
