    Hey, I'm on a really low budget but will be able to buy the 6 GB version in about 4 days. But if I wanna buy the 8 GB version, I'll need to save up to 3 weeks. Now my question. Is it worth waiting that long for just 2 GB more RAM and 128 rom or just go with the 6 GB version? I mean is the diffrence even feelable? Thanks!

    I'd just go with the 6 gigabyte. It will still run with excellent performance and zero lag. While 8 gigabytes is very nice, it's really not necessary.

    You won't notice the difference unless you need the extra storage space. Get the 6GB model. You can also save $20 off your purchase with the link in my signature or on my profile if you buy accessories as well

    I went with the 6 GB version and 64 GB storage. It is more than enough for me and probably will be for you too unless you know you wanna have 15 heavy apps running at the same time :)

    I think you need to decide if you need more storage or 64 is enough. If enough, when go for 64gb, if not, then save some money and buy 128gb. I dont think you will notice any difference with more ram.

    Using the OnePlus one right now with 64gb. It's more than enough. So there is no feelable diffirence between 6 and 8?

    The only reason I went with 8 was the 128gb storage. There is not a difference in speed. Normally you wouldn't even fill 6gb of ram :)

    Ive gone from a 128GB OP3T to the 64GB OP5T ( yet to arrive) as I never filled the 128GB, or came close.

    2 Gigs of ram won't make any difference. You should be choosing your phone based on the amount of storage you will use. For me 128 Gigs was necessary cause I click a lot of Photos. It depends on your usage.


    Want more storage - save money
    Else - Buy 6 gig version

    the problem is not now but the future for example in a year. since now I have 1.3g left, you can imagine how fast software evolve and need more memory to run like Instagram Facebook or other really common tools. I can see with 6g, potentially there will be a problem in a year but no worries for 8g.

    Your puny 8gb will be toast next year when I get the OnePlus 6 with 16gb ram

    if your requirement is the storage then go for 128gb model or else it won't make any difference as 6gb ram itself is very much fluid for day to day use...
