RAM is an important specification on your smartphone. The amount your phone has can significantly affect its performance. If you’re curious about how much RAM you have on your Android phone, we’ll show you how to find out.
To see how much RAM is on your Android phone, you must first enable the hidden Developer Options menu. There is a lot you can do with these lesser known settings, including checking your phone̵

First, swipe down from the top (once or twice depending on your device manufacturer), then tap the gear icon to open the Settings menu.
Then scroll all the way to the bottom and select ‘About phone’.
At the bottom, tap “Build number” repeatedly (usually about five times in quick succession) until the message “You are now a developer” appears.
Then go back to the main Settings menu and tap ‘System’.
Tap the new “Developer options” section. If you don’t see it, check the “Advanced” section.
At the top of the page you will see ‘Memory’ and how much memory you have, but you can tap this option to see more information.
This screen looks slightly different depending on your phone manufacturer, but the number next to “Total Memory” indicates how much RAM your phone has.
The RAM listed here is usually a bit lower than what was advertised. For example, the Pixel 5 has “8 GB of RAM”, but the system shows only 7.8.
The amount of RAM your phone has will never change, but you can always check how much you’re using here.
