Dot-WiFi, 17 Sep 2014cause the performance is same level as high end android phoneIt's like why charge a plate of pasta $20 when it costs $5 to make? Why it costs $2000 for a Prada bag? Businesses don't do charity here. The price is set because of many factors. How much people are willing to spend on a brand? If you can make a $10 product and earn $100 for it, would you charge them $10 or $100?
That's what they said about Microsoft Windows Phone OS back in the day now, as they even said it could run very smoothly on the minimum amount of RAM of less than 512MB & 1Gb! Looking where they are even today as they are even using higher amounts of RAM from 1.5GB to well over 2GB Plus in some cases then and Even BlackBerry has Recognised this fact as they also offer higher amounts of RAM these days! Especially for Real World True Multi Tasking! The higher amount of hardware internals will also means that the device would run much better and seeing as it's not just all about the Software to Hardware Ratio Relationship you know, as that's only going to be able to so much then, even though then the hardware internals are kept to an minimal improvement, but you know then again that alone still wouldn't be enough for Apple to keep up on with the rivals on both fronts Hardware & Software, or even keep up with the other Hardware Rivals such as Qualcomm Snapdragon then! So then Apple needs dig their heads out of the sand nowadays you see what I means!
Those who gave bad comment here, i think they never used iphone/ipad before...l used both os...ios very smooth and stable...never lacked of ram even tho only 1gb running the whole system...when come to benchmark like antutu..the 1.3 dual core easily reach almost 30000 points...android phones need atleast 2.0 quadcore with 2gb ram to get result like iphone did.
1 GB of RAM? Not a problem at all! no, wait... it will just mean Safari will be reloading web pages after every time you return to the application
I want to know what's inside that A8 chip. A8 has three times the transistors as Snapdragon 805. It could be that A8 has a huge L1, L2 cache and don't need big RAM but fast RAM.

PKC, 17 Sep 2014One time was there when Steve Jobs use to innovate and world use to follow. Now, world is the ... moreLet me ask you just this. The WORLD had NFC on phones for many years. What have they done with it? and what is Apple doing with it now? It takes alot of time and money to get a program for NFC going. You don't just put it on a device and call it the latest gadget.

PKC, 17 Sep 2014Even after this, iPhone will sell millions and millions.
iFans are blind.... If they say 1g... moreyes. 4 million blinds (first 24 hours) and you are not. there must be something wrong with YOU then.
Anonymous, 17 Sep 2014And then you see the Note 4, 3GB Ram..and it still stutters... /giggleNote 4 is not even out yet and 3 never had any lags. Try it first before u lie.
Typical fabricated story or false rumor by an iShill to trash competition and brainwash gullible and naive kids.
One time was there when Steve Jobs use to innovate and world use to follow. Now, world is the leader in innovation and iPhone will follow in the near future.
e.g. NFC, OIS, etc. In the future you will see 13mp camera, 2GB ram, dust resistant, water resistant, etc.
How many years they will earn money by saying user experience. Now iFans also understand the reality but they wont accept.
Steve we miss you....
