    Higher resolution = More RAM consumption.
    This is what I don't understand... Why for such a over hyped phone now have less than the 2012 one ? That means safari WILL reload faster than iPhone 5 because the RAM will be consumed more because the higher resolution.
    I don't think it's fair at all. They should had put 2GB this generation. Now it's going to be limited and not future proof. It could have 12 cores and it would still perform terribly in iOS 10. I don't find it fair at all.
    iPhone 4 to iPhone 5 was a bigger update.
    LTE...Double the RAM...Higher MP camera and 2 cores.

    Plus I remember reading on Anandtech that the move to 64-bit takes up to 20% more RAM than previous 32-bit versions... so less RAM there as well :(
