Doubling RAM On Smartphones Is "Silly"

Your thoughts? I can’t say I agree, since many seem to be obsessed with higher resolutions, not to mention the sea of poorly optimized and memory hungry apps out there.

Many people can run their new PCs with a fairly comfortable 4GB of Ram and 8GB is only required for power users. For everything that I have said about Apple, the outfit has a more pragmatic attitude to RAM. iPhones have always had less RAM than their Android competitors and managed to do rather well. Increased RAM will just look good on the spec sheet. It will, for a number of years, be pretty much useless.
