Even more so since benchmarks have now shown there is a significant performance boost running in 64bit. I wonder where all the naysayers are going to hide now that it's proven the 64bit "marketing gimmick" has actual real-world benefits you get right now, without 4GB of RAM?
But, but, but, but..... only a 4" screen! /s

Guess maybe assuming plastic means low quality was jumping the gun just a little...?
That's what I've been saying all along. "Plastic" does not necessarily mean "low quality".

Anand says 1 GB and they usually know what they're talking about. I'm a little surprised because some other reports said 2 GB.

The entire A7 is BRAND NEW, not to mention the area in which the Touch ID resides, within the SoC solution.
The M7 is brand new. The battery is brand new. The logic board is brand new. The Camera is brand new.
Sorry, but the man is a complete hack.
It's the usual iHater crap come full circle.
The iPhone 4S and 5S are not really new since the use the same case as the previous generation, even though almost every internal component was new..
The iPhone 5C isn't really new because it's the same internals as the iPhone 5 stuffed into a new case.
Makes you wonder what would make these idiots believe that a phone was new. I guess you need to give it the name of a new candy for it to count.
