Re: Moto Z2 Play VS Moto Z Play? My in-depth comparison!

So, 3 GB RAM and 32 GB ROM? Shouldn't that be 3 GB RAM system memory and 32 GB Internal memory (also RAM)?

RAM is different from ROM. Your 3GB RAM is basically where the phone draws background apps and data from. RAM stands for random access memory, and reading and writing to RAM is fast because it's constantly holding and opening background data. 

 

ROM, or the 32GB ROM, is where all your storage is held long term.  Think of photos, videos, etc being held in the internal storage (ROM).

I thought that was called NVRAM.

NVRAM is memory contained even when the device is powered off... like IMEI, Wifi and bluetooth MAC addresses, networking settings, and the like. 

 

RAM is usually referred to system memory, which is what holds data from apps when the phone is in use.  And ROM is known as system storage, like photos, videos, documents, etc.
