    Both are useful, It's just a matter of how much you use. :)
    It you are a hard code gamer, go for 8, else stick to 6.

    You dont know, how you and your phone usage may develop - take the max, like @GhostOne posted. Maybe you get a gamer, because of this phone is so beasty...I have bought 8/128 and didnt miss anything with my racing sim.

    Considering most other flagships from the big brands only use 4GB, I think it probably doesn't matter. Both are overkill, and OnePlus prevents either of them from opening enough processes to make it useful anyway.

    It all comes down to multitasking...
    If you like to work on multiple apps at the same time, (and you keep switching in between apps) bigger RAM equals more background apps. So that's that...

    i think 6gb is enough.all flagship phones with big brands r not having ram more than 6gb i guess.
    so don't choose ur phone ram wise here.choose internal storage capacity wise. i.e. 64gb or 128 gb.depends on ur requirement.

    I agree, but OnePlus locks the number of processes to 32 according to my build.prop, and usually that's not enough to even fill 6gb (yet).

    Process and simultaneous running apps are kind of different...
    Like I'm watching YouTube right now, but when I get a notification, I switch apps and after I'm done, I don't want YouTube to reload...
    That's just few apps... But if you see the multiple apps opening and switching, 8 gb RAM can store much more than 4/6 gb RAMs...

    I believe this value dictates the maximum number of apps you can have "frozen" in the background. As a simple test, you can open many apps and flip through them to see when they start reloading, then check your memory usage. I'd bet it won't be much over 4gb (unless you're multitasking many games for some reason), because the OS is forcing the oldest apps out of RAM before it fills up. Unless the 8GB model has a higher app limit (which it may), you won't have any more simultaneous apps able to be open than on 6GB, until apps individually start using more RAM in the future.
    My point is, either way, you're future proof.

    dude it all depends on your daily usage.
    like wether u readily clear cache of the opened apps by clicking the clear all task button, or u just leave them like that and hope them to start from exam same posture u left quiet a long ago.
    if do clear the cache all the time then go for 6 gb variant ( unless storage is an issue 64gb only)
    if u don't do that and over that u r a pretty hardcore gamer like u okay Injustice series or any other heavy a** rendering games then u should go for 8 gb variant as it help u alot .
    overall go for 8gb variant its not much of price raise from 6gb and believe me worth it.
    as we know Snapdragon here is overclocked we won't know when we need extra ram in future.

    That was too long... ;)
    But true...
    There are phone speed test videos on youtube, and if you'll see the ones where it's a competition between multiple phones...8 gb RAM performs better... Just because of app reload is not there...
    So its useless in day to day use...
    But who knows what future holds...

    go for storage...bcoz 6gb is still more more more than enough..pixel 2 xl gives u 4gb ND iPhone x 3gb..so.6gb is very much..don't go for ram..go for 128gb...bcoz u will not use that extra 2 GB ram..no body uses it....6gb ram is still 3 to 4 yrs future proof..

    strangely even with 8gb ram real racing 3 restarts every time I get a phone call or use whatsapp. I don't know why this happens and I never faced this problem on my 3gb LG g3 prior to this

    both are good and have very little to none difference. you with feel the difference in speed as they both equally good and close to compare . whats your primary usage for the phone ?
