Just like on a PC, more ram won't show up under normal circumstances. But if you run multiple spreadsheet analytics and an intense program like Adobe's full image program, same-spec'd PCs with a higher ram usually have a smoother experience than lower ram. Both will run, but one will be a much better experience.
I question whether that's the case on most phones right now, but start dropping advanced color arrays on 1080p screens doing multitasking and that extra gig of ram will be very welcome indeed
That would be the Linux 3.x kernel
