Using the phone for last 2 days...Below are the findings.
1) Display - Nice, No complaint.
2) CPU, RAM, Performance - Lightning fast read and write speed with 64 GB SD Card (x10, 80 MBPS), with heavy use still RAM leftover approx. 1 GB. Not a heavy gamer but Temple run OZ, Montezuma....smooth experience. HD videos in MKV, x264 runs smooth.
3) Camera - DSLR or prosumer camera grade cannot be expected even with flagship brand like galaxy s7 or iphone s6. Fairly good colour composition, better low light capability in comparison with earlier moto experience.
4) Battery - Drains heavily with extensive Data because of background applications. Expects to change removable battery after a year. Till then once charge in a day for 1 hour gaming, 1 hour video/Audio, 1 houir data and rest phone call and messaging - Manageable.
5) OS - Main UI clean however bloatware installed which can be uninstalled. Nice feature of installing app through a) system decide b) Internal Memory c) External SD card.
6) Sound quality - Great, would have been nice with two speakers apart further.
7) SIM capability - 1st 4G/3G enabled; 2nd 2G enabled only.
Note: Unlike Xiaomi phones computer connectivity is excellent with SD Card, no hassel at all. Only ADB drivers shall be installed in the computer.
During 1st use download 86 MB update to solve the battery heating issue.
*****Ultimately choice is yours depending on usage and affordability. Someone may find excellence in flagship product. Ohters will try to change taste with 2-3 phones for a period of 2-3 years.*****

Snapdragon 616 has all the basic architecture gpu inorder to play good demanding high end games. Ram do have a role to play in your overall gaming experience since everything you install gets stored in your ram which means the more you keep your ram free of space, the more it will open up apps faster. Also once you've played the game, you can directly open apps through ram and not from phone's memory.
munna, 08 Aug 2016for me 35-40 is normal broYou won't find 30-40 degress phone. Evrn flagship phones gets around 44-45 after continuous gaming

so heavy games mainly rely on cpu and gpu . and i m agree with u in multitasking part .on a bigger ram u can run many apps simultaneously and speedly also .but cant play heavy games on lower cpu and gpu even if u have 3gb or greater ram.
I bought it 2 days before but right now battery is not performing well

Also 3gb ram would load apps and games faster and would be able to handle multitasking much better.

so the extra heat produced by the phone is a loss of electrical energy in the form of chemical energy stored in ur battery .

and also the system ram reserve is directly proportional to the ram size
greater ram size u get the greater size system reserve .
difference is only 100-200mb free space u gain in sequence ram size
