Secondly, the N8 doesn't Lag at all... not a single possible bit....
I am using the Belle on it now and it is very very smooth.....
WP needs more RAM than Symbian.
Anyways, I am using the Droid RAZR(dual core, 1GIG RAM) and used a Lumia 800. Both are EXACTLY THE SAME in terms as UX and performance.....
Good that MS is trying to optimize the code..Altho wp7 is a good OS,its still a no go for me untill MS decides to allow bluetooth transfers and USB mass storage..please kick that zune out MS and you will see millions of users suddenly flood wp7...And as per the reviews so far,wp7 seems to require some power efficiency optimizations i guess...The lumias scored pretty bad.

dont forget Nokia need improve presser
not like Nokia n8 very lag all the time
put i test my self android faster than windows phone
with dual core put windows phone look good single core
much much better than symbain
i hope windows support app like android or ios
I think all you have read this well enough..
" While official specs list 256MB as minimum
system requirement.. "
it's about system; n' talkin' about minimum size..
tango is a minor update.pls bring win 8(apollo)earlier before android launches its next os(jelly beans).android is a hardware hungry os as compared to win phone.

The undeniable marke... moreall you people who dont understand the news what it is saying that the phone will work on phones with low spec phones so that we can have a low end windows phone....try to read the news next time and then write a response...you guys if you are happy with your andriod devices go and be happy with them no need to troll over here
Talk 256MB of RAM is enough and almost immediately the Android Fans start saying that it is low-spec, mid-range etc etc etc....instead of attempting to understand the positive impacts of it.........
This is what Android has done to the world...where the word "OPTIMISATION" or "OPTIMIZATION", depending on which continent you are from, sounds out-dated or unknown.....
Dont want to live in this planet anymore.... !!!!(Facepalm)!!!!
Fair enough... If they are going to have low-medium
specs then they most be priced accordingly.
E.g the Lumia 800 should not be more than £250 ($389)sim free
How to ruin a Nokia,... Put Windows Mobile on it. To be honest, the New Symbian Belle is the way forward.
Just a blatant attempt to get windows phones into the pockets of people who don't really want a high end phone (traditional nokia territory) and grab a bigger slice of market share currently dominated by android (which also has low end devices) and iOS (which doesn't) it can only be a good thing to give the consumer more choice.

Just admit it that Android is a resource hog.

much better than a phone which is amongst the lowest scorers in battery life test and that too with mid range specs like 3.7' screen(not an amoled)with wvga resolution, single core processor,512 mb ram,etc...
oh wait, thats not an android device, thats nokia lumia 710!!! hey, doesn't that means wp is a bigger power hog than android???
If 256 ram can open up web pages, play videos, opening files on par with IOS, dual cores/quad core androids or even faster, why not? I am not a tech expert myself, but I want things extreme fast on my phones.
Nokia, you go ahead and do that. I want to see the result. If your 256 ram phones can do faster than dual cores/quad cores, I will want the word "DUAL CORE/QUAD CORE" taken out from dictionary/Wikipedia. It's a deal.

Co... moreMy Galaxy S2 has got dual-core and 1gb ram and doesnt lag at all, just as fast as a iPhone4S and Htc Titan. Thanks for making me laugh though, you truely live up to your name. :)
By the time these 256mb ram WPs are out, low end Androids will be on 1ghz CPU and 512mb Ram...oh wait, they already are (XPERIA Ray, Xperia Mini etc...) and THEY DONT LAG. :)
Shame MS are forever playing catch up.
Seems to me like Microsoft and Nokia are still living in the last decade. The undeniable marketing fact these days,for crying out loud,Microsoft, is a mammoth specs in a slim outfit. Most users, even the less geeky, know that all too well.Wait for the quad-cores droids to debut and hordes of people will toss their SGSII to the trash cans to savour the best and latest. The same Microsoft that is pushing people out of using Windows XP with massive, state-of -the-art hardware components only supported in Win 7 like the core i8 intel processors and 64 bit buses is convincing us to stick to 256 MB RAM on a smart device? In year 2012? Like the competition is not zooming? Deal sealed-Windows Phone devices will be playing second-fiddle to the mightiest and greatest.
Anonymous, 23 Jan 2012That's a really good thing. My GS2 is currently using 342MB of RAM and i haven't got any appli... morethat's strange... my SGS2 is running with 220mb whe all running programs are killed and 250mb once the important ones are up again... I'm using Go laucher, maybe try this out, helps in killing running apps... just don't download any additional "TaskSwitchers" or "TaskKillers", they all suck and can mess up your phone... I had to hand mine in to my provider and have it reset after I installed one of those dumb apps...
Now that's what I call progress! WP optimization is so great, it doesn't need 1 gig of RAM. Compare that to a power hungry, lagging on dual-core OS out there that's being used by the majority of OEMs and you'll know that WP is a clear winner.
Good job, MS! I am so glad Nokia chose your platform.
