How to Increase Ram on Phone

How to enable memory extension features in xiaomi phones?

The Memory Extension function essentially converts part of the device storage to a virtual RAM. 64 GB users can add 1 GB of virtual memory, 128GB adds up to 2GB, while 256 GB devices add 3 to 4GB. Because RAM memory and storage are distinct, the performance of additional RAM acquired from storage will not be identical to that of original RAM, but it will provide some speed improvement. These features will help you to improve your performance when gaming or video editing. But the xiaomi company advises that users enable it only when there’s enough internal storage.

The Memory Extension feature is only available to Xiaomi phones with MIUI 12.5 and MIUI 12.5 Enhanced update (or newer). Xiaomi has released MIUI 12.5 Enhanced to its many devices and the majority of phones are getting Memory Extension with Enhanced update.
