    XENOPHOS, I think because you want to literally 3 or 4 apps I think the phone will do it for you.

    On another note that HTC have an app for their Windows phones called “Make More Space,” an app that presumably junks unwanted files on the phone. Now I didnt see this on my 8S or maybe I missed it but I cant find much information about it but if this app does what I think it does which would be to delete unwated cached data it could be very very useful for the 8S and might even make me go back and buy one.

    Has anyone else heard about or even used this app?

    If you could tell me about that app I would appreciate it so so much. As I'm thinking of getting th 8S again if I know this app works and allows you to clear the cache of apps as I really really want this phone. Thanking you in advance.

    I unfortunately must agree with the negative comments above... Just bought the 8S, installed some apps, and the Phone memory is full. Can't even download a map in the expensive Navigon Europe app. 32GB of SD memory can only be used for media. MSFT, please update the OS!

    This is the part that confuses me. people who have the phone aren't complaining. But others ( including me) are worried. Like I said, I am not going to install more than 10 apps. And BTW, doesn't HTC phones come with some pre-installed tool apps like torchlight, converter and all? That would again save me some more space. My other question went unanswered...does it have the lockscreen notification for email/Twitter etc..?

    never had that screen and performance issues, I do not like the look of the Nokia 620 looks like a plastic phone :P
    So is my thought...looks like a plastic toy...and plus, 8S looks premium..

    XENOPHOS, it think you're right. I use for about 3 to 10 apps, and maby 2 games. 1.3 gigs will to that for me. **** me if it doesn't, hehe. I'm sure the 8s will do the trick.
    I'm going to get it in 10 minutes or so. : D
    Hahaha...yes, even with the Playstore brimming with apps, I very conveniently giving it a miss. I don't WANT any apps TBH. Just the ones I need on a day-to-day basis.

    Not sure if you've read the review yet from TheVerge. They listed screen and performance issues with the 8S. Let's see what other reviews say.
    I did see the review, couldn't find anything...will see it again today..what screen issues BTW do they talk about? I hope nothing major...

    yes, it comes with HTC applications and you can have the lockscreen notification for email and other things.

    And the phone dont have any screen performance issues.

    when I say I have 10 applications are not included applications htc

    Oh cool thanx..my question to u Sityos, The Verge reported they had a non-responsiveness a few times and that some appa froze and the phone jumped back to the start screen.
    Is that true? Does the phone stop responding sometimes?
    Hope it isn't a hardware issue...

    Dude, Each one has their oppinion. That is ok.. I think 620 really exicted a lot of pple. Also, i think once 620 is revealed, you should go and hold it and see. You may like it.. Black is not toyish by any means.

    HTC 8x has no sd card, you need to put photos, music, videos and documents, apps on 16 GB storage.

    on HTC 8s we have 32 GB+ on SD card for music, videos, photos.... and 1.6 GB for apps.

    Just one ridiculous question...

    The 4" doesn't look small right? And, also..though this happened a while back, I asked my lady colleague how a white phone looked for a guy and she smiled and said it looked girlie....but 8S doesn't look...you know...I mean it looks manly right? Shouldn't look pansy or anything...

    The 4" screen is just right. The phone fits in one hand. Trust me its good.

    As for looks. Its a nice well design aesthetically pleasing phone. Its neither girly or manly. Its just a good looking phone :-)

    The 8S is a great little phone and it does fit into one hand perfectly.
    If HTC would make a 8Gb variant it would be perfect to fight the iPhone4S and iPhone4.
    The memory is limited, but just enough for most people that just need the apps they need and just a few maps.
    I live in Switzerland, so I added the Swiss map, the map of tiny Liechtenstein which is all I need on that 8S.
    Not every country is huge.
    $ for $ the 8S is great!
    It is great for people who need just the basic stuff, great for companies that need a basic smartphone for their employees, great for every day use.
    The battery on the 8S is excellent I find.

    As someone else who is watching his pennies, I am sorry we in the US do not have this fun little option. Sure, the smaller app count might be a deal breaker, as might the no Front facing camera. But for the price you get a fun looking (arguably the best looking WP 8, including other unrealeased ones like the ATIV S and the 620), decent performing mid-sized device. (Is 4" officially small now, or is it still mid-sized? Might just open that up in the forums for debate.)

    I think for your purposes Professor X, this little guy would fit the bill. It is quite a different animal from your current monster phone, but I think to use for a while and see how you like WP 8 it would be fine and a joy to use.

    I see no reason not to wait and play with the 620 as well in your position, but I am willing to bet you won't regret the 8S.
