Is like Samsung S4 and S4 Google Edition or Nexus...who will receive first the goodies of updates? Obviously the one that is involved directly.
Same in HTC Nokia Microsoft, Im more on Nokia track than HTC...

Don't they all get updates when they're rolled out? That was half the point of locking everything down so strict-like.

Too bad few to none of wp's high-end phones have external storage..you need to get a 512RAM -incompatible with high-end wp apps- mid/low level model to get an SDslot.
Offline storage is awesome for anyone who might travel outside of good coverage areas, or anyone with a data cap, or anyone who doesn't want to have to wait for their content to download/stream..which just about covers EVERYONE.
At least the 625 has the ability to USE it without filling the internal memeory. But I don't understand why they're purposely making devices that aren't fully compatible with their app selection (and wondering why devs can't code a bit better to split up that RAM requirement; needing a G of RAM is just crazy).
AnonD-168013, 23 Jul 2013Nokia made another big mistake by delivering a meagre 512 MB RAM yet again. What s the benefit... moreDon't talk balderdash here! If you want a phone with higher RAMs, Lumia925, 920 and others are there. Go pick one.
dear nokia what happened to you? what happened to your brilliant finish designers are on vacation or had you fired them?!!?

i'll dumb my lumia 820 and buy HTC 8X 2mp front facing cam high resolution, beautiful and slim design.
Anonymous, 23 Jul 2013That's true bro I agree with you because I am using both and experienced with that phonesI have an samsung galaxy W with 512RAM and 1.4gHz single core processor with cyanogenmod 9 installed ---- no lags.. as smooth as my older bro's Lumia 800 (512RAM 1.4gHz single core) w/ custom ROM installed
android only lags because of that stupid [insert manufacturer name] UI. especially that dumb touchwiz..
