However, for virtual RAM, it is obvious that the internal memory of this smartphone will have to be kept free. There is 12GB of RAM, so if you always keep it free from 3GB of storage, then if needed, you will use 3GB of phone storage.

The good thing is that this is not a manual. That means you will not need to do anything. If needed, the phone will do this work itself. This feature will prove beneficial for gamers and heavy multi taskers.
