I remember Nokia saying Symbian don't need fast CPU and don't need a lot of ram, but they priced their phones as if it's equip with high specs. We all know what happened to Nokia. Goodluck with that strategy Apple.

Apple sure knows how to milk a cow. Or maybe not. That cow looks severely dehydrated and malnourished now but it still has an apple logo on it so people are still gonna buy it. I'm sure apple fans would send a message to apple if they balked at a new iPhone release one generation. Having more ram is lot more power efficient that accessing NAND flash constantly. Shame on you apple.
And once again the Android fans will come here and say the same thing over and over again...
Apple is following Nokia's blueprint to bankruptcy. Build phones with last gen specs and price it at premium because of the brand.
I strongly encourage the commenters here to read the last paragraph of this article before commenting. Don't just read the heading and pick wars...
just 1 GB of RAM,, oh cmon apple,, and with that price,, no thanks,, with the money that u have ryt now u can even put 3 GB of RAM w/ those new big iphones
Yesterday's technology, at tomorrow's cost...... boooohahah... FAIL!!!!!
Ok, I believe the base OS and most simple apps can make do with that, but what happens with graphics intensive stuff? Won't 1GB be too little RAM (or does de GPU have some extra dedicated VRAM?) to push all those pixels to the screen in an already computing intensive app or game?
Does it even worth upgrading from iPhone 5s? I've already sold my 16GB iPhone 5s, and thinking of upgrading to 6+ or buying a new iPhone 5s 64GB version.
what do you think guys I should go with?!!
