    Is there a list of the Windows Phone apps that require at least 1GB of memory?

    The Lumia 520, 620 and 720 all look like very attractive handsets, but I'm interested in knowing if the 512MB of onboard memory is likely to pose any real restriction. As far as I can tell, there's no obvious way of finding out.

    The only app I've seen thus far that requires 1GB is the Engadget app (God only knows why it needs so much memory) but are there any others?

    Nokia Xpress Browser also can't run on 512 MB RAM Devices (Tested on my Lumia 620)

    I don't know why there is this limitation, even Asha devices have Nokia Xpress Browser!

    Maybe these apps are coded badly and not optimized, so they can't run on 512 MB RAM devices...

    "Asphalt 7 : Heat" and "Nokia Xpress Browser" have got updates, and now they can run on 512 MB RAM Devices (Lumia 520, 620, 720, HTC 8S)
