    While I love my 6 Plus, it's been the worst acting iPhone ever. I'm hoping that the S version will have resolved the issues that others have said on the forums are related to not enough RAM memory. I'm not really knowledgeable on these tech specs. So can someone in the know please advise if the new Plus phones will now have the power under the hood they really need?

    This has yet to be seen if more RAM helps. I'm pretty sure we'll soon see posts popping up both confirming and saying it doesn't help.

    Interesting debates turning to 'mines bigger than yours' style posts.

    There are always folks who are immediately unhappy with their new Apple products. Blaming the RAM is an easy way to complain.

    Just stop.
    If lack of RAM is not an issue, I wouldn't be seeing 20+ Jetsam low memory error logs in system diagnostics on a daily basis.

    I had my camera changed at Apple due to the recall and the Genius ran a diagnostics check on it. He told me that it was running slow due to not enough memory and told me to do a full restore to my phone. I did that but have not noticed any improvement in performance. I just updated to the new iOS so I guess I'll see what happens now.

    At the end of the day I really like my phone but the performance of the 6 Plus compared with every other iPhone I've had has been really bad. I used to always tout my Apple products as they "just work". Hasn't been the case this time. I'm usually on the upgrade every two years but will most likely pay full price and update this fall after all the new phone hoopla dies done - maybe in November or so.

    Yeah because 1GB of RAM was plenty for a 64Bit phone with a 5.5" 1080p resolution screen that employed downscaling wasn't it. Such a phone was ok with the exact same amount of RAM that the two generations older 32Bit iPhone 5 had with it's tiny non-HD screen.:rolleyes:

    Even on paper 1GB looked like a terrible, penny pinching decision and in actual use the 6+ was proven to be a dog of a phone. I sold mine two days ago and I can honestly say that it was the most disappointing phone I've ever owned.

    I agree it's been a dog of a phone compared to others I've had. What did you get for your new phone?

    I'm interested to know if you're planning on getting a 6s, 6s plus or neither to replace it?

    I ordered a 6S+ for my sins but *any* funny business and it's going back!

    I'm going to try a 6s this time. Performance isn't the only reason, but a large factor. Thankfully we have the 14 days ☺️

    If it was 5" and 1080p I would be joining you. I would really miss the display definition though and find 4.7" to be just too small, especially after owning a 6+.

    More to the point, if lack of RAM was not an issue, Apple would not have increased it. Apple is not the sort of company that randomly increases those specs just for fun. They obviously realized that they simply had to do so.
