My gaming computer has 4 GB RAM. My phone has 6 GB RAM.... xD
6GB RAM on phone? Which phone you have?
Some flagships have 8gb now, 6gb is becoming the norm.
OnePlus 5 - 6gb or 8gb
Galaxy Note 8 - 6gb
Lg G6+ - 6gb
HTC U11 - 4gb or 6gb
And I'm still stuck with 2GB and 8gb of storage with half of it filled up with the OS and preinstalled shit. Then there's the fact with each iteration of Android, external SD cards are made more and more unusable.

2gb should be more than usable, however if the manufacturer has filled the phone with junk then i see the issue! 8gb on-board storage is limiting though, 32gb should be the absolute minimum these days.
This is now a storage thread.
Incidentally, 1TB SSDs ain't cheap. I would know.
I also didn't plug in my two external 4TB drives here for the screenie, but let's just say it's 6TB/8TB used.
My drives fill up too quickly.

The thing is, companies such as Dell make you focus on the look and feel of the laptop, and the resolution of the screen. But never actually tell you it's a shitty Intel Celeron Clocked at 1.50 GHz, 2 GB of DDR3/2 RAM, and Intel HD Graphics. Luckily, I look at the specs.
Except you can buy a Dell laptop with a Xeon processor, so that point is slightly invalid. Also, Dell owns Alienware. A better example here would have been HP.
Their home offerings are shit, but the business ones are comparable to thinkpads plus if you're like me you can just outright skip Windows.
Flash memory like SD cards have limited write cycles and should never be used as a main storage device for a computer over say a traditional HDD where the number of writes have no link to the lifespan of the device. Using it as the main storage device in a computer is a good way to burn one out over a very long period. That said SSDs are flash memory as well but to reach their write limit you'd need to write 5GB a day every day for something like 5 years. What draws people to that option is it's high speed and combined with the fact that you wont't have to worry about magnetic platters breaking when it drops.
The whole limited life cycle thing while true is overblown at this point. Flash memory now is really really good and for most users you are likely going to run out of space and upgrade rather then over use it.
Only time I can see u burning out flash memory if u are using them in server farms where GBS of data is beING written to each day.
a consumer microSD lacks the speed and durability of a proper HDD/SSD. That is all.
