    There should not be memory issues with these 512MB phones as the design guidelines limit them to 180MB and it does not make sense to release an app that excludes them.

    Limit type App type Lower-memory phones Higher-memory phones (WVGA, 720p, and WXGA)
    Default XNA or native 150 MB 150 MB
    Default XAML/.NET excluding XNA 150 MB 300 MB
    Higher All app types 180 MB 380 MB

    Okay, after two factory-resets the syncing is working fine. Also I got no random shut downs since. Sometimes the phone is lagging, but now it's not as bad as earlier. I only have 2 apps, as I earlier mentioned. After those 2 resets I got 1.12GB free space with many chats on Messenger and Whatsapp. So the solution is resetting. I enjoy the phone more of course, but it had been easier if it was working so good from the start. Because I don't use many apps the space is fine, but if you want to install more choose the Lumia 620. Battery lasts for 1,5/2 days with wifi and 3g on.

    I own a HTC 8S. After a factory reset and changing the speech region and keyboard settings to US, I have only 400MB free memory (getting only 3 days worth of emails) no apps installed. I can't even install Nokia maps locally. The SD card can't be used for installing apps. I really wish if the windows foot print was less than 1.5GB - I can't believe its over 3.5GB. It really sucks.

    If I had known before that I will have only 400MB free space after OS on my 4G HTC 8S, I wouldn't have gone for this phone. Sorry Microsoft - you will have to stop allowing manufactures to sell devices which are has than 8GB capacity. Or, let users install applications on microSD card.

    I understand your plight brother. However, why don't u factory reset your phone once. Then, change the keyboard settings and speech region ONLY if its utterly necessary.

    Also, even on my droid RaZr I get mails only from the last three days.
    Maybe that's how it is...

    So let me this this s#*t straight..we can download app onto a SD card but the apps will subsequently install onto the phone once installed right?
    If this is the case, this phone is useless..who wants to do a damn factory reset every time they have installed one too many apps or uninstalled and lost other important data such as texts, contacts and so forth?

    This is friggin shameful if it cannot be correct..
