512 mb of ram is the deal breaker... y r nokia following the stupid strategy of samsung on their premium lineup??

It has 128 MB ram and Nokia says that it will be enough for Symbian. But when using many times I got message of "low memory can not do this task" like that. Sometimes it hang and trip off. Some 720 users also complaining in forums that their devices hang in heavy use sometimes. Meanwhile 820 , 920 have 1 GB ram for which reason?. Also I am afraid 512 MB ram devices will not get future OS updates.
james79, 17 Jul 2013Actually these games run fine on my old live walkman with 512ram!they ran perfectly without rooting,overclocking,etc??besides as far as i remember se live(i used it until recently)..it had hvga screen so it needed much less ram(much less pixels to buffer)....this phone has a wvga screen so it needs more ram...anyhow it is very likely that more of them will be available for 512mb ram phones and work out of the box as they are just ports from android phones,they will be updated by time like temple run...
I suppose the reason windows phone have lower ram is because it hasn't got the high end games like shadow gun deadzone which do require 1gb+ to be enjoyed properly! This new nokia looks boring in comparison to 820 and 920

Windows Phone OS doesn't require as much RAM and it still runs smoother. You want facts, look at the S4 - even with 2GB it lags when switching screens :)

TheAgent, 17 Jul 2013Let me introduce you to this: http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_galaxy_grand_i9082-5163.phpHm!. Let me see! Dual sim, 1GB or RAM. Price? But anyway, you can get quad core, 1080p, 2GB RAM Chinese phones for 170$. Even the Xiaomi Mi2S with 720p, 1.7GHz Snapdragon 600, 2GB RAM and 8MP camera is 276$ in China!
Nlookviears, 17 Jul 2013like temple run for 1gb ram runs on 512mb ram low end wp8I think the games that he/she wants for to be played in 512 MB RAM are Modern Combat 4, The Dark Knight Rises, Amazing Spiderman, N.O.V.A 3, and Order and Chaos Online. Those games still need 1 GB RAM.
Can you make a 6 inch version of your LUMIA. I need big size phone. 4.7 inch is not for me.
Anonymous, 17 Jul 2013why does nokia stick to 512mb ram and then turn around to tell us Windows update will be for p... moreHey stop there! When did Nokia tell you Wp update will only be for 1gb+ ram devices? Ok how many Android oem give Software update for all their phone from high-end to low-end? Nokia is the only oem that i know who constantly updates their apps and the Os. So please get your facts right!
Nasib, 17 Jul 2013Ya I know 512mb is enough to run WP8 but what about app and games that needs 1gb ram.like temple run for 1gb ram runs on 512mb ram low end wp8
Try a computer with Windows or a Mac or a Linux pc with 512 MB RAM...In this case: Android=WIndows, very hungry for resources. This is not innovation, it'sabsence of optimization. Android is becoming very heavy, a quad-core (or octa-core!) in a phone is an absurdity.
