This is an interesting one that Xiaomi are working on, I am guessing with memory chips getting faster this may become more a thing, article:

you'd usually have to format all your internal storage which would probably catch some off guard * +

Yeah, and apparently Vivo already do this, had no idea. I remember some Custom ROMs allowed this some years ago but I have never tried it. * +

it's very bad for your nand life span I think was the consensus after a while. * +

Ahhhh, that explains why it never came to mainstream for a long time. Will be interesting to see how this goes for Vivo and Xiaomi, I cannot really think of a situation where someone will need to turn this on when all these phones come with over 4GB RAM at this point, a lot of them coming with between 8 and 12GB RAM is already quite crazy. I remember 6GB RAM being perfectly fine on my Note8 and now with 8GB RAM on my last few Androids including the Mate 40 Pro I am not seeing any real difference, all multitasking great. What difference will an extra 1GB do I wonder? * +

I use my current phone pretty much the same way as my previous ones. when I check running services I see that I always have 3gb free ram. I can use an app and it'll still be in memory days later which is freaking awesome. with 2gb of ram opera would reload every time you opened it.
I don't use social media apps that want to run constantly pre-loading photos I might click on and status updates. maybe people want to run windows 95 on a virtual machine, I can't think why you'd need more. *
