Will you be returning/canceling your 6+ if there is only 1gb of RAM?

    I've seen a lot of debate on the subject and I'm just curious:

    Is anyone here planning on canceling their order or returning their 6 or 6+ if they come to find out it only has 1gb of RAM?

    EDIT: Now basically confirmed only 1gb of RAM due to the true reviews being released.

    Nah, I'll be keeping mine. Like the bigger screen and increased battery life

    I'm leaning towards it. $1,000 CAD for a gimped phone? Sorry Apple, not happening.

    I'll probably just stick with my iPhone 5 and iPad Mini for now.

    No big deal though, Apple will just have an extra 6 Plus exchange unit.

    I mean, if it was laggy or unresponsive then yeah. But I can't see Apple releasing a laggy phone this late in the game. They know what people expect.

    Do you think Apple would release a laggy or sluggish phone in 2014?

    It will be 1GB ram, if the iPad air has 1GB this will too.

    Maybe the new iPads will set the tone for 2GB because of the rumored multitasking for 8.1.

    Regardless, some will be foolish enough to return it if it proves to have 1 gig if it's not actually laggy.

    P.S. do you guys think that 1gb of RAM will start to quickly show lag/sluggishness with soon-to-be future iOS releases and shorten the amount of time until the 6+ is left for dead by Apple?

    Well, the user was referring to phones.

    "Do you think Apple would release a laggy or sluggish phone in 2014?"

    And my answer would be, "Yes, they've already released a sluggish MacBook Pro."

    No.

    I always close all my app manually and I always close all my browser tab manually too so 1GB or 2GB does not impact me. And in 2 years I am buying iPhone 7 or 7+ anyway.

    The 6+ is the first device to be doing 3x retina scaling, so there's reason to expect more RAM.

    I won't even order one if it has 1GB of RAM, let alone cancel my order. All that money for an old gen iPhone with a bigger screen? When Apple properly update the 5S then I'll be interested.

    If Apps and Safari tabs keep reloading like they do on my 5, then I'll consider selling it.

    What updates in the iPhone would you need to feel compelled to upgrade?

    I ordered both to be delivered launch day and will return or sell one unopened. I will base my opinion on the professional reviews that should drop tomorrow. If indeed the plus is laggier and has performance issues over the 6 its a no brainer. Doesn't make since to pay more for less performance. Too bad the 6 doesn't have the OIS but I feel the overall performance of the phone is more important.

    If I detect even a hint of any lag whatsoever then it's going back, my 5s didn't lag and I can get that back for half the price.
