512MB ram with Quadcore 1.2ghz cpu and WP 8.1 on board will be able to play games previously requiring 1gb ram with dual core on WP8. Wishfull thinking...Hope not.
You all r requested not to compare lumia with 512MB to an android with 1GB. Go to any nearest NOKIA CARE centre and get a LIVE DEMO of Lumia with 512MB RAM and U will feel like as if it has 1 GB RAM. WP with 512MB RAM works more smoothly than of ANDROID with 1GB RAM. Because this OS has unique Architecture u will Feel this. I Accept Some games like TR2, and subway Surfer work on 1GB RAM on WP but the optimization work is still in process and soon u will be able to play these games on 512MB RAM WP Devices Too... :)
Windows fan, 10 Apr 2014Yup I agree but u want dis specs than its prise sounds near 13000 They don't give front camera and 1 gb ram. Ok bro No problem. But If somebody paying 10k for smart phone at least Flash should be there.........We Indians use flash in nights mostly :)
It's so funny when Noki's fone come with 4.5" without flash n RAM with just 512,,,,, L525 (4" with 1GB RAM), n L620 (3.8" with cam flash),,,,why nokiaaaaa,,,,,why,,,,??????*sebel,,,!!!!
we need 1gb ram,5mp camera n secondry camera also n flash light. n price should be nearest 10000 , its make perfect phone.
Akhilesh Giri, 08 Apr 2014If ram is not an issue than I would buy it for sure. But I am bit confused about ram...I mean ... moreI've had Lumi 610 with 256 MB when 512 was standard for all smartphones. It worked extremely smooth and snappy. Now a friend has Samsung galaxy (something :) ) with 1 GB of RAM and it works as a shit. Besides, i really like windows user interface, simple and elegant (though this is arguable since it is matter of personal preferences). Windows is a way better optimized system.
It doesnt have a useable camera, same as 525, no LED flash. Why Nokia always make this mistake? Now Android haters looking for a cheap phone will rather get the BlackBerry Z3 that has an LED flash, in addition to 5 inch display, 1.5GB RAM and is compatible with most Android apps.
I LOVE GSMARENA...best place to check anything about phone in just a click. Thank you team members fir helping me in investing my hard earned money in the best gadgets. ..god bless you all.
brynn, 06 Apr 2014True people need to know all this massive RAM and processing power is NOT needed on W8 or IOS.... moreIf ram is not an issue than I would buy it for sure. But I am bit confused about ram...I mean does it really work good with 512 mb ram as my galaxy core with 1gb ram sucks. Its very slow.
neobhai, 07 Apr 2014512mb seriously???Nokia's marketing policy need to improve.Buying a 720p quad core 1gb ram MOT... moreWindows runs better on 512 mb RAM than android on 1gb RAM...so no serious issues unless you are die hard gamer...
Omkar, 08 Apr 2014Windows Phone doesn't require much RAM, it works smoothly on 512mb ram. moreover this is first handset in lumia series which support dual sim.
