REMEMEBER nothing is for freeee
why r u hating wp8 for no reason, your comments sounds like you are android or ios user. wp8 has all those things you saying it doesnt. you can contrl live tiles of course. in terms of, 512mb for windows phone = 2gb ram for android. this doenst come from hate this comes from experience. i have my nexus 4 and lumia 900. my lumia 900 feels much much smoother and faster than my nexus 4
Human, 15 Apr 2013Inb4, HTC + good battery life? You must be drunk/joking.Yeah, right. My SGS3 lasts for 3-4 days in medium use. Not on stock rom though (but this rom is built from the newest official rom), but that isn't a problem for anyone - so it's all good. :)
Tiaan, 13 Apr 2013Nokia phones are getting better it's only the bloody os. Nothing against wp it just that it is... moreGalaxy Grand is a crap product from Samsung - It has a 5 inch 800*480 screen which is woefully pixellated (expected if you stretch 800-480 over 5 in) and has a less powerful broadcomm videocore chipset - they wrap all these low spec hardware into Note 2 body thinking people will fall for it. For the same price, you could have the excellent Xperia SL with 720p HD screen.

Lumia 720 battery test fail me :(
I bet HTC First(same battery capacity, same screen size but with much higher resolution, faster CPU) will have better battery performance.
Complainer, 15 Apr 2013So, no ambient light sensor?From the GSMArena review:
"Above the screen you will find a discreet earpiece, the ambient light and proximity sensors, as well as the front-facing camera."
And what happens with free lifetime navigation??? Shame on you nokia!!

512 MB is quite sufficient for wp8 handsets. I own Lumia 620 and many android handsets and tablets. Wp8 is very efficient with RAM due to its task switching model instead of android's almost unrestricted multitasking. Both OS have pros and cons, but I can tell you for certain that you won't experience any lag while running wp8 apps. There are delays whenever you switch to another process, but once the foreground app is fully loaded in RAM, there won't be any lag. The same can't be said to Android's apps and OS.
Hey! u have put me in great confusion...... i have a question regarding lumia 720s RAM and application ..... i wana know that which type of apps cant run on 512 mb RAM.. also tell me how do u find lumia 420 .... plz do answer
skipper, 13 Apr 2013Microsoft already said that all the WP8 phones will be upgradeable to the OS.
WP8 uses reso... moreThat's because WP cannot even attach multiple different file types to emails! And that's very efficient indeed! :P
Not to mention the so-called "live" tiles is not live at all because it is only updating on certain interval which cannot even customize by user. Nor user can refresh new information on the tile as and when one prefers. I'm sorry to say that tiles are nothing but lousy implementation from MS. To me, they are just a bunch of flipping icons that show pictures.
Android may need more ram to work, but just like a PC, you can't expect doing more work but having lesser resources, can you? But being a not-so-smart phone like Windows Phone, of course 512MB is more than enough....
