i am a bit disappointed Apple could have given more ram and taken the fight to android. hate it when Apple and Microsoft do this. 3Gb ram is enough for windows 8.1 desktop yet people use 8 or 16 GB. How much does it cost to add 1 gb extra ram
P.S. apple vs android battle is a win for apple. Most android users think android has won. Nope! Apple has no low end devices. Just 1 $200 apple iphone (latest device) would wipe the floor clean android out :P
Dot-WiFi, 18 Aug 2014maybe u have bad lucknope... i tried my friends.. apple demo unit.. all will crash... -.-
AnonD-8310, 18 Aug 2014because my iPad crash everytime, even though using iPad Air 64GBmaybe u have bad luck
And last but not least: If Android is trying to become a full blown desktop OS on a mobile device with multiple windows and tasks, it is missing the point.
Apple and Windows have the upper hand by owning their respective desktop OS's, and hence their mobile OS will never try to compete with desktop, but rather seamlessly integrate.
Something that Android will never be able to do. With 1, 2 or 4GB.
[deleted post]yup...1gb is enough ...its up to apple want to add more or not... its their product...
Anonymous, 18 Aug 2014That is bullshit, 1 GB RAM, new generations smartphone have 3 or 4 GB RAM, no thank's apple I ... moreAll I can say is: I've used iPhone 4, 4S and 5 and yes, I've had the occasional crash of apps and Safari, but I have never had my phone slow down or struggle in any way.
So 1GB is good enough for my purposes, and if it's 2GB - who gives a flying....
The phone is obviously designed in such a way that people don't constantly have to worry if the hardware will give up on them if they download the latest app. No iPhone user ever cared, whether you play the latest Games or just use it for browsing.
So get a life guys.
AnonD-59657, 18 Aug 2014Entry level RAM but charge at flagship price! 1GB RAM is only for super low end smart devic... moreApple don't charge for specs. They charge for design and user experience which is superior to any other smartphone.
Dot-WiFi, 18 Aug 2014who said ios cant ?because my iPad crash everytime, even though using iPad Air 64GB
Anonymous, 18 Aug 2014iOS needs only 512 MB but still it gives 1 GB. That's the beauty of iOS is so fast. Other chea... morewhat a crap ur talking
if u like iphone stuck with that but dont underestimate android or other phones
Ok, it's like "symbian trashers" (mostly from iphone fans) and "symbian lovers" back in the day... haters trashed Nokia for "not having enough ram, cpu, bla bla but really, symbian did not need 512mb ram then to work smooth, so why would better product like ios need more ram now? It's NOT android ok? I was iphone hater for so long and now I can enjoy watching wheels turned on them. But that does not mean they are right, iphone needs less ram than highend android device. They (android trolls) were saying the same thing for wp devices, now when wp flagship have same specs then any android flagship, and wp is less consuming than android, they say crap like lumia 930 is not a flagship. Come on. Check specs. Buy a device that you can, that is for you, don't defend or spit on others, be objective. And... are these companies paying you? No, you are paying them, so... with 1gb or 2gb iphone6 is going to sale like chewing gums and that is the truth. Owner of lumia 520 and Samsung galaxy s4 mini and let me tell you , 512mb vs 1,5gb ram and low end lumia is on par. I rest my case

The schematic's references DDR and NAND suggests that it more likely refers to some aspect of the device's flash memory rather than DRAM included within the A8 chip
Anonymous, 18 Aug 2014Actually Android fans are those bunch of dumbs dont know what the multitasking is..... right
[deleted post]why you mix goats with horses ?? if i want to spent the price of surface pro 3, better i buy a real ultrabook like dell xps 13" or apple macbook air 13" with full options and a real keyboard and both have the same size and weight like surface pro 3 :))) surface pro 3 have an insane price and is big and ugly. SURFACE PRO 3 IS IN FACT AN ULTRABOOK :))) plus, a real ultrabook like dell xps 13 i can keep it open on small surfaces, like plane or train tables, or in bed. surface is difficult to keep it open everywhere. and now, here we are talking about multitasking on real thin tablets,ultraportable, not pig size useless tablets. so i repeat: ios on ipad is already very bad compared with android, because ios' limitations are very annoying on a tablet wich MUST do more than a mobile phone
XXX13, 18 Aug 2014If you need a device for multitasking get the surface Pro 3, it's a full laptop replacement.Well in that case why get a smart phone?
You could get a dslr, desktop computer, 60 inch tv, movie camcorder, ancient satellite phone, and so forth.
AnonD-77292, 18 Aug 2014Yep they know that Fanboys buys at high price and think their phone is the best there is . but... moreI could afford any of the current flagships around, but I choose iPhone. In a city where everyone uses a GS4/5 or iPhone 5. So it's not about showing off.
(And before you ask: I own a SH007, and a GS4 from work. Spares.)
