Sorry to say but no Temple Run and Instagram as of yet. Molome is coming, might come in next month which is a substitute for Instagram and there is a Ragdoll Run that I can say is not exactly a substitute but something to that effect.
Have to agree that WP is relatively and is still playing catch up with apps and games sections, but I think it has the most needed apps, as the popular ones, all I can say is that they are coming.

I live in Mumbai
Specs harldy matter to me, its the functions that a phone carries and its form factor and build quality that I am mostly to opt for. For me a phone should be a phone, below are my fucntions that I seek on the phone based on priority.
1) Calls and SMS
2) Mails, Social Networking and General Browsing
7) Taking photos
Since I am not a big spender, I will always look for a mid ranger, that has the functions I need and that suits my price point. I am currently using Nokia 5233 and Samsung Galaxy Ace. Both are good phones and both are doing the above functions pretty well. The only reason I am changing is they have become old, while Ace has started show the signs of deterioration, 5233 is going as good as the day I had bought it. But I guess its time to upgrade.
So basically specs comes to me at the absolute end when I need to compare with other phones at the same price point. Sorry to say but I don't have a Dream Specs for a phone or anything.

Ok after reading so many websites and some hands on experience I have to say windows still have to ways to go. It needs a lots of improvements. For now it is by no way comparable with android jellybean. Let me explain by comparison between Windows phone 8 and jellybean.
1.in wp8 there is only 3 brightness controls available,low medium and high.
2.it does not have multiple windows.
3. Far behind android in terms of games and apps.
4.You don't have any option to change the theme, you can only change the color of live tiles.
5.Basically wp8 devises are thicker than most android devises.
6.It has no dedicated file manager.
7.It has no task manager to manage all the apps in one place.
But yes wp8 has got somethings that is better thane android, that is office 360,i.e.10, building quality of lumia is better than samsung devices,nokia clear black display, and it is basically fast and fluid than any samsung android devices available at same price range.
Now if u are ok with the odds of the wp8 I will strongly recommend u lumia, other wise go for android.
It is only samsung, who can launch phone at great pace.Largest manufacturing capacity in world.It can flood any market in world.But others laggards.

1) Lets suppose Nokia is waiting for MWC to get over so that they can launch the trio of 620, 520 and 720 at the same time, which could be their reason to delay. Then you will have more options
2) Considering that 620 is launching in India after 2 months of its release, i am guessing 720 will come around april-may time.
Either way, lets see what nokia says at mwc and then you can decide that do you want.
AnonD-112472, 22 Feb 2013You are right! Now that I have waited for so long, I think I will wait for a few more weeks.
... moreThanks mate :), Sure, will keep you guys posted on this, even after I have the 620. Will be happy to guide you guys.
SuperNexus: - I am pretty sure, after having the device, you will be also able to answer the questions and give super reviews. :)
