I gave reply right away while this thread was still empty, so I thought I was the first. But I guess everyone just ahead of me in typing so I totally missed to read the previous replies.

I agree, 3Gb is enough. I can run ingress + pokemon go + spotify without problem.
However, I am worried, if google decided to make it a requirement for 4Gb ram in Android O, we will not be able to upgrade right, just like Z3?

I have used sony xperia z, z2,z3dual,z5 premium dual and resently bought oneplus3.
6GB RAM totaly worth it.
For oneplus 3, 5.6G is acturally accessable in the android system. I have averagely 3.4G in use for idle.
I have had about 100 apps installed on the phone.
I think in 2016 3GB ram is only able to cope most situations for moderate users, but never heavy users.
Using 3GB ram on a "flagship" device is totally failure. For a real flagship in 2016, 4GB is minimum and 6GB will be a bonus. Isn't the flagship device for those heavy users anyway? For a heavy user, loads of app being installed is for certain. And many of the apps will have background thread. This will quickly occupy the poor ram.
With 3GB you will feel laggy in around 50% time, 4GB will make the phone running fast in most times unless switching between some heavy apps(games or pdf/office files) , and 6GB will be lag free unless there's bug/optimisation failure.

Well sorry to say that as long as you cannot command the app developers to limit their background thread, your ram management will be in vain.
For a 3GB ram device, at stock status indeed there will be 2GB ram for free to users. But as the more apps installed, even they were not opened since last restart, the background thread will still autostart and eat up the ram.
Usually I found my sony device have only 500M free ram after I turn it on for 20-30mins, and If I start to play music, open some webpage and apps, and have some swtich between them, I will only have 200-300M free ram. And if I go for a heavy game or open a PDF file or another webpage, the lag and reload will be for certain.
I was a sony fan and used sony phone from xperia z to z2, z3 dual, z5 premium dual, and now I have disappointed with sony.
