Smartphone specifications and features keep getting more advanced, and RAM (Random Access Memory) is no exception. RAM is the part of the memory of a phone that is used for running apps, as such, the more RAM, the smoother apps run. In 2021, 12 GB RAM is what we are seeing in premium flagship phones. There are also a few other phones outside that class with 12 GB RAM.

Most cellphone and smartphone manufacturers have announced their major releases for the year at this time, so it is safe to look at what phones are available for the year. I have taken a hard look at available phones with 12 GB RAM, and picked out a handful that I consider the best that money can buy.

Motorola Edge 20 Pro is one of the best 12 GB RAM phones in 2021

If you are a lover of stock Android, you are out of luck. None of the manufacturers who offer stock Android OS have any 12 GB RAM phones in the market at this time. As a matter of fact, none of them offer smartphones with cutting edge specs, so if you love to live on the edge, you have to look away from them.

There are over 150 smartphones available with 12 GB of RAM at the time of writing this, so there is a huge catalogue out there to choose from, if you are that adventurous. Sticking to the above short list will make it easier for you to decide, though. That thing about having too many options isn’t nice to deal with.
