    Hey.

    I have a HTC Trophy 7 with 7.8 on it. I don't use the phone as an actual phone, just for gaming!

    I'm looking for a cheap WP8 and I can get the 620 for 140 from my provider.

    I'm really tempted about this as it will mean I can play all the Nokia exclusive games and obviously WP8 games.

    Will the device be alright for games ?
    What size is it compared to my HTC Trophy 7 ?

    Thanks, Sam!

    No... it only have 512 ram which is not really enough because now there's game that require 1gb ram.

    With only 512 ram I would say no.

    If you're into heavy 3D games, no

    Not a good phone for games. A different OS would be better for games. Not too many games on the windows platform

    512 MB RAM on WP8 means more restrictions and playing heavy games (Such as NFS Hot Pursuit) can be a little bit laggy at times.
    Would recommend the Lumia 820. Take a look on the phone.

    Ok guys.

    Thanks for your input.

    As for other OS, i like the Xbox Live integration. I use my Blackberry for day to day stuff, just WP for some good games!

    Ill have to see how much some of the betters ones are on PAYG.

    Sam!
