    I would say that it probably depends on the processor.

    I am pretty sure that 1GB of memory is going to lag. How badly it lags will depend on the processor.

    1GB of RAM is extremely low-end and will totally suck with nougat...

    Some phones will be optimized to operate with so little RAM, but most won't. In any case, Nougat's minimal overhead seems to be about that: 1 GB.

    Draw your own conclusions.

    Newer phones that have Nougat are optimised to support at least 2GB of RAM, this is evident with all android phones. Samsung are putting 4-6GB of RAM in their smartphones to avoid lag at all times. The Samsung J series is the cheapest smartphone that they create and they have 2GB of RAM

    I agree: in stock form, without any additional apps or services running, Android itself will use up to 1 GB of RAM at any given moment.

    Most phones nowadays come with at least 2 GB, with the 4-to-6 GB range becoming the norm for mid-to-top-of-the-range phones. Needless to say, with only 1 GB of RAM, you can forget about gaming on your phone, but to just place and receive calls, SMS, it should suffice.
