When Samsung released the Android 12 update for my phone a few months ago, I noticed a new RAM Plus setting, which uses the storage to expand the memory. Pretty useless on my phone, as it has already 8 GB of RAM.

In OneUI 5 there will be a new option to disable it, but until then, there’s a workaround to disable it on phones with OneUI 4.1:

  1. Enable the developer settings by pressing the build number in the software info multiple times.
  2. Enable USB debugging and connect the phone to your PC.
  3. Download the Android SDK Platform Tools.
  4. Run the following command:
adb shell settings put global ram_expand_size_list 0,1,2,4,6,8
  1. Reboot your phone.
  2. Go to the RAM Plus setting, choose 0 GB and reboot again.

Now you’re RAM Plus free. 🎉
