    I have tested on heating and ram issues…. gr8 improvement of upto 500 my free ram…. just install a heavy game like I have installed asphalt 8….the heavy apps automatically reduce ram usage to run themselves…. awesome experience for the game doesn’t make the phone slow…… also you can increase a bit more ram by switching off and on the phone on daily basis

    Self experience
