    Hi, I've been a lurker here for a bit now, and decided to ask a question.

    I need a Windows 8 (or 8.1) phone that has at least 1GB ram. While my Lumia 520 is fine, it has only 500MB ram (or in that margin) and I want to run some better WP games that will not run on mine.

    My needs:

    1. NO CONTRACT
    2. Any carrier, doesn't matter
    3. Brand Name
    4. 1GB Ram
    5. Under $200

    All help is appreciated! :)

    Where do you live that and who is your current carrier.

    Do you need sdcard expansion?

    I'm sure you could find a 920 for under US $200 - they're pretty solid phones too

    I live in the USA.

    Carrier does not matter, as I said.

    I use a Lumia 822 very solid windows phone. Features exactly the same processor and RAM as the Lumia 920.

    It also has micro SD cards expansion and a removable battery.

    Only con I can think of is the physical design is very un-Lumia.

    Also have Lumia 822 since it came out almost two years ago and it has been rock solid. I was drawn to those round corners actually.

    The Nokia Lumia 82x, 92x, Samsung ATIV S Neo, HTC 8X will fit that bill.

    Samsung ATIV S Neo, unlocked (ATT model) can be had refurb for ~$130 on eBay. Also comes in a Sprint model.

    The 810 (T-Mo, no updates after Amber), 820 (ATT), 822 (VZW) are fine options.
    The 920 can be had if you look enough. 925, not as likely, 928, don't know.
    HTC 8X I respectable.

    and welcome to WPC!
