In 2015, 2GB RAM and 16GB ROM was a crazy combination in budget phones. In 2016, 3GB and 32GB ROM was a norm for budget phones, thanks to benchmark set by Redmi Note 3. Now, in 2017, 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM may become routine on budget phones. With an ever increasing usage of smartphones fuelled by millions of apps on play store, the need for better processing speeds and more memory is at all time high. Also, users are inclined towards high-quality video playback and virtual reality (VR), which demand more memory. While mid-range processors are becoming sophisticated, all eyes are on RAM and ROM of a budget smartphone.
