For the maximum support of 2.7 Ghz CPU, Motorola has used a 3GB RAM on the latest Moto Turbo. This is currently the best configuration for a smartphone which dominates the Apple iphone 6 and other high end mobile phones. It seems that the upcoming Nexus 6 can be a good competitor of Motorola Moto Turbo.

HTC Desire Eye comes with a 2.3 Ghz quad-core krait 400 processor which is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 and a 2GB RAM which is comparatively less powerful than the 2.7Ghz beast Moto Turbo which carries 3GB RAM, but better than the other high end smartphones of the current market.
