My wife's iPhone 5 that's getting close to 2 years old WOULD have qualified, except she dropped it last month down concrete stairs and got a replacement from Apple. Her battery worked good the entire time. So clearly it's not EVERY phone sold during that time period.
No, he was right. Until the latest version of Google Play, security updates required a patch to be released which then went to OEMs and then out to your phone. This was time consuming. Now Google has updated Google Play Services to allow more of the OS to be updated directly.Which also makes you a liar. You previously stated very clearly that Google Play Services ensures security updates are delivered to Android devices when in fact only high-level items would get updates....
What a terrible looking device. Apple would never have the top screen attach to the phone in such a way that it formed a lip like these pics show. Apple would have the screen flush with the sides.   This isn't an Apple device.
I ride Skytrain to work and I check e-mail and catch up on news. Most people I see on Skytrain seem to be playing games or checking out Facebook.Regardless, there have been several studies regarding smartphone use. Games are #1, which makes sense considering the top earners in the App Store.So instead of discussing whether or not 1080P is a gimmick based on perceived vs actual benefits you come back with that?
 There have been several studies of what people do on their smartphones. Watching TV/movies is way down the list (less than 10%). So a GPU/CPU having to scale videos for <10% of the time is going to use as much power as a high-PPI display that's sucking more power 100% of the time?
 1080P on a phone is a gimmick. It's far beyond what any person could ever notice in terms of pixel density. It's taking a number that people are familiar with (1080P TV's) and slapping it on a phone to make people go "oooohhh" when in fact it offers zero benefits and does nothing but suck more power.
Seems reasonable. There's absolutely no reason whatsoever that a phone needs to follow standardized resolutions like 720P or 1080P.
Let's throw the guesses out the window and make a prediction that's certain to be right:   That Apple will sell boatloads of all devices this fall and will break sales and revenue records in the process, all while stealing away sales from all the other vendors who rely in bigger screens as a selling point.
 Or did Apple decide to have 1GB of fast memory in the A8 itself with another 1GB external RAM to use when memory runs low or to keep processes in the background?
 True. Also remember Apple bought Anobit, a Flash memory company. Who knows what technology they might incorporate from this purchase? So maybe not an outright paging file, but some hybrid type of setup like Marvin said.
