    I guess the question we should ask ourselves and also the developers should ask themselves is that. Is 8gb of RAM necessary or is it just a tactic to lure in people who don't know much about a phone and make it look glorious on a spreadsheet.

    I'd put it down to a bit of future proofing.

    Software will always be produced to fit the limits of the device.

    Having 5 or 6 apps open will use quite a bit of ram. I have 8 open right now and 5.5gig is being used.

    it'll be used in part for caching which is useful but not necessary. the bigger the ram the more android will cache and this includes ever less likely apps you'll use
