"•Removing the back panel is testing"

..just like the HTC Desire S, I find.
The next smartphone I buy, this will be one of the 1st questions I ask.

Hate them for it.

It 's very strange that you didn't review the battery life.

Because the bad point (and what a bad point) of this phone is right there...

U guys should stop comparing WP8 and android. Am sure Android applications didt start with 500000 apps at the same time.Windows apps with time will grow.it ur choice to choose whatever suits U. Pls anybody with L620 should post there experiences with it.

The app issue scarcity is a valid point though. Also there were manufacturers who released XP boxes with 128MB RAM.

video reviews show that the phone is pretty lag-free for that price even with the browser. The app store scarcity is wellknown though. And yes XP devices did ship with 128mb ram.

Very weak apps indeed, they seem to be busy making many apps instead of quality apps.

Your phone slowing down from time to time is normal for WP8 devices with 512MB RAM, WP8 is very resource hungry compared to Android which can run well on single core and 512MB (and below). Its mainly when using the webbrowser you have slowdowns, right? WP8 requires 1GB RAM (to use all features), thats what Microsoft has said the whole time, 512 is absolute minimum, we have to ask why phone manufacturers insist on making 512MB WP8 devices. WinXP could run on 128MB but no manufacturer made PCs with 128MB for XP, microsfts minimums have always been theoretical minimums that should never be used.
