    Yeah, I don't really care that much about numbers. I care more about actual performance. iPhones have almost always had less RAM than the high-end Android phones, and they've still run smoothly. When the Moto X 2013 came out, there were folks saying the processor wasn't high-end enough, but it was also fine. The few videos I've seen of the Nexus 5x in action lead me to believe performance is fairly smooth (hopefully Marshmallow and whatever's coming down the pipe will optimize for the specs of Nexus devices).

    Hey thank you for the words. I think it's actually depends on using.

    2GB will be fine IMO. The Nexus 5 will even still be good for a while. I only let it go sooner because the battery life was ridiculous.

    You can check your average usage of Memory in Settings. That should give you an idea if you would need more RAM for your next phone.

    I was disappointed when I read that the phone only had 2GB of RAM however, it doesn't appear to affect performance noticably. Everything's pretty slick. Having said that, my last phone was an N4 with 2GB of RAM so I'm not used to the fastest phones around.

    Don't underestimate your Nexus 4.;) It's quad-core Snapdragon S4 pro processor can still handle all the new apps and game really well. If a 32gig option was ever available, I would be all over it.
