    Yes the benchmarks are true.

    I have eBay, YouTube, Discover, Amazon, Weather and Safari.

    While using safari with 6 tabs open it kept crashing and restarting the app it did it for 4 times and on the 5th time I closed the others apps and BAM no more crashing.

    Also, noticed that my 32GB 5S was more smooth overall and tid faster.

    I am returning the 6 and going back to 5S, most likely will the 6S when the actually give more ram and a better clocked processor.

    PS: It was pretty shocking that the iPhone 5 which came out 2 years ago had the same RAM of 1GB as the 6 Plus.

    You do know the benchmarks show the Plus having a 10% faster performance on GPU side and a 2% slower performance than 6 on the CPU side and overall benchmark is the same....right??....right??! you do know that right?! and you do know that INCLUDING the bigger screen estate, the 6 and 6 Plus still outperform the 5S in benchmarks by 25% right? ...right?!

    I may be wrong but most of these apps were not ready/optimized for iOS8. Even iOS8 needs alot of tweaking so I think things will smooth out once the updates roll out.

    Making hardware decisions before 8.1 comes out is probably a bit rash.

    How can you tell what's the phone and what's the software? I'd have no clue.

    You guys know apps still don't truly run in the background, right? The data kept in memory for an "open" but inactive app is fairly minimal.

    you do know the benchmarks measure chip performance not memory performance..

    is this your first time with a launch day phone?

    new software, new hardware. of course there are going to be some kinks, the 5s had the advantage of being optmized for the last year through numerous software updates. Chill out and enjoy your phone.

    I love it when people make decisions about things they don't understand. It's neato.

    I guess it's unofficially official. Macrumor's "everything-I-think-is-wrong-with-my-iphone-6-must-be-the-lack-of-ram"-gate.

    Everything is wrong because of the ram. How can you manage to run multiple apps with such low ram? iPhone 5 has same ram as 6 which is kind of bogus.

    ----------

    Definitely not my first. Had all the iPhones but only launch ones from 4S

    ----------

    That's partially true. Minimal memory depends on the time it has been inactive for.

    ----------

    yes sir.

    I agree. However to be fair, without knowing a release date. If you're unhappy better to return while you still can

    Because iOS doesn't do multitasking, and the OS combined with a SoC handles memory completely different to how Android or a standard computer does.
