    1 GB again? I know that UT is lighter on RAM usage than Android, but come on.... We need to have one high end phone for UT, give people something to be excited about.

        at 02:33 just see the number of apps running and how cool the phone is with all that stuff running (as if its nothing). I know it's the 2GB RAM phone but android doesnt stay this much happy with tons of stuff running on 2GB RAM either.

          Does it have HDMI or something to plug in the screen so we can try that 'converging' thing theyve been talking about?

            I have BQ Aquaris E4.5 and 1 GB RAM is enough, multiple applications run well on the phone. MX4 has 2 GB RAM and BQ will make a new phone that will be capable of convergence later this year which means it will have high end hardware, likely a octa core CPU with 3 or more gigabytes of RAM and 5" full hd or 2k screen.

              Ehh yeah they are all suspended. The application switcher is doing nothing more than to flick through screenshots.
              Not really proof of anything.

                  I've been thinking about it a lot - it saddened me - I decided not to buy for the fact "Mediatek (correct if I'm wrong) inside", nor any device that uses Mediatek for that matter.
