Being new to iphones, I was shocked to see the newest phones have only 3gb of ram. I would be happier with 4. Not for today, but in a year or 2. The fact the 6 only has 1gb of ram and can still run ios11 is incredible to me. The basic Android flagship has anywhere from 4-8gb of ram. 8gb on the OnePlus 5t is excessive and a bit of a marketing ploy, but more ram is always good. Eventually 3gb of ram will not be sufficient. I think the X will become limited sooner than the 8+, due to face Id and the other sensors and features it has over the 8+. The 8+ was outdated looks wise the day they announced it, but I just feel like using an 8+ in 2020 or 2021 could be better than a first gen x at the same time. Did Apple purposely limit the ram this year so that 2018 they could cause more people to buy a 4gb iphone? If they produce a 6.5" x plus with 4gb of ram, how much faster would the net result be, since it would probably have second gen face id plus new emoji and AR capabilities?
