Gee, If top end Android now needs to have 3 GB RAM to get get out of bed in the morning and process all of its spyware and marketing data on you, and to crank up those memory hog screens, surely Apple needs more RAM also.
1GB RAM means 722MB, facebook apps alone consume about 500MB what about other apps like flipboard, newsstand, which consume big cache. Oh yeah forgot that apple is fashion phone
This is joke, They need to put 16GB of RAM CPU because, it will make process faster. Android only has 2GB.
muya, 18 Aug 2014both Lumia Wp8 or 8.1 and iOS.. need only 1Gb ram. 512mb in wp8 or 8.1 also smooth and... moreYou are right but that was one generation ago. This year high end windows phones have 2 Gb of ram, and the next generation iPhone must have 2 Gb. Nothing less.
I own ipad 4 and also sony z2.. Have downloaded hifi today magazine of 40 gb, its rich in pictures.. Z2 opens the pdf faster in seconds.. I get to load pages immediately with slight lag while zooming the page..
Oops its horrible in adobe reader of ipad 4. It opens quick but takes nearly 20 to 15 sec to load each page.. Zooming literally more.. The reading interest is totally lost.. However i always prefer ipad to read all books.. Display awesome.. Most of the books magazines are fine but heavy pictured magazines takes too long to load... Please dont tell me to update/ reset/ re install adobe reader in ipad, bcoz after doing all these the heavy picture magazines failes to load quick as sony z2... Sorry apple boys u need to accept apple fate is similar to nokia and is losing to competitions.. Unless battery , rom , ram is improved , it will be another nokia... Samsung sony and htc are triads in leading tech,, sony best in hardware, samsung in software, htc in build and design... Apple is far behind , hope its not too late like nokia
I'm not going to buy it if this rumor will be true ...
I was barely fine with last year iPhone 5S and iPad Air still at 1 Gb, but now we definitely need 2 Gb.
I know that their devices work well with their OS but still, 1GB RAM IN THE SECOND HALF OF 2014? Really? And guess what: it will be the most expensive normal (non-cristal, gold plated) smartphone ever sold! Nice one, Apple, nice one!
Maybe it's a marketing strategy, leak 1 GB and then come out with 2-4 GB?
Anonymous, 18 Aug 2014See u never even owned an iphone yet u speak so badly about it...ur a paid troll!You do not really need to own something to have an opinion. I have owned every iPhone up until the iP5s as I concluded it was over priced and not really worth it. An epiphany of sorts you might say. Each to their own but try to not flame people's opinion just for having one!
There must be increase in screen solution. So if the RAM is still 1GB, the new iPhone can be quite laggy.
Aadrian, 18 Aug 2014Soon android needs 6GB of ram to run smoothly Im sure you haven't heard about project butter or the developers direction regarding android L. They both aimed to run Android with less resources and lag free. My note 3 never lags and beats any iphone in speed. How i know: because we compared games loading time and response times. And geee every game loads faster on my note 3 than on the 5s.
Aadrian, 18 Aug 2014Soon android needs 6GB of ram to run smoothly Hahaha true that!
I am yet to see my iphone 5S lag, even samsung galaxy s4 lags in time....
Anonymous, 18 Aug 2014See u never even owned an iphone yet u speak so badly about it...ur a paid troll!Aww, hurt your feelings, have I? No, I'm not a paid troll. I usually test out a phone before I buy it. Don't like Samsung, HTC, Nokia...sorry, edit that, I like 1520. You don't have to own a phone to know it, especially when you can easily borrow it for a week from one of your subordinates.
Anonymous, 18 Aug 2014It's like why u buy 3.0L Honda instead of 2.0L Mercedes. That's all u can afford.Anyone can own a Mercedes, most of them make monthly payment. You're not special because you drive a car that is lacking style.
while the 5s has broken every sales record apple has set, in terms of percentage of the smartphone market, apple is going down, because it's lost completely huge markets, like china or india because of overpriced phones. few years ago they were just below 20% and now they are just over 11%. and apple, as usual, is stubborn as a 5 year old child and refuses to learn.
