freedom of 6gb of ram crushing aps here and there.. way to go. Only htc, Sony and Google know how to make 3gb of ram enough to do everything. Others need 4 and 6gb of ram, and the apps on the background still crush!

An obvious answer to you, it's android. You can customise it and make it exactly as you want it. unlike windows and ios. Before complaining about it, make sure you know a few facts about android 1st.
