None of the online reviews say performance is bad

Given that iOS cant do proper multi tasking or multi user 1GB seems fine.

The Galaxy S3 only had 1GB RAM and coped fine, so I would expect the iPhone 6 to cope similarly, since it has much the same features and functions ;)
At least, from what I've seen, it copes fine, though I can't tell the difference performance-wise from our 5S's.

if you want your browser to not reload when you switch apps, or change between tabs, then iPhone/iPad is not for you.

Clearly not enough people care about this, look at the presales.

I've already got the iPhone 6, it performs alright but nothing like the Oneplus One.

(by iPhone 6 I mean I've got the 5S, there doesn't appear to be much really changed IMO)

So you don't have one then.

Bigger screen, bigger battery, new optics in camera, new processor to name a few.
