    i have 2 RM-877's both TELUS versions (sale at microsoft store, got spare) one has black, other updated to cyan, both without DP. when i run the system information app the black one shows 300MB of application memory, the cyan one shows the 825MB app memory of a 2 GB device. so the extra gig was not locked to the camera after all...

    I had the same 'issue'. Don't know where the balance RAM went to. However, after the update to 8.1, I can't find this info anymore. LOL 😁 I am on L1520. My RAM for L920 though seems to tally up nicely, i.e. no missing RAM memory.

    Which app are you using to show RAM info?

    System monitor: windowsphone.com/en-us/store/app/system-monitor/62772528-f388-45d5-8e28-8d15e2335be9

    insider: windowsphone.com/en-us/store/app/insider/d9b7989e-1592-4f25-a556-4755c06bf2e9 (free version) shows 1GB but says this comes from MSDN and may be lower than actual and shows 780MB as the memory usage limit

    and finally msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/jj681682(v=vs.105).aspx explains 780 is avalable on 2GB devices, and 300MB on 1GB, both the limits for non silverlight apps.

    Out of curiosity, and slightly off-topic:

    How much was the sale on the telus version? Which Microsoft store location? Wouldn't mind picking one up for a decent price off contract if i could

    bought it from the microsoft store at west edmonton mall in april, for 500 plus GST and the camera grip was half off at the time also. as i never bought a 808 and am a shutterbug i thought it a good idea to have an extra. both the grip and phone were on sale only in the physical store, not on the web. the telus one is no longer offered, they have the rogers, and the unlocked one now.

    Thanks for the reply WPGeek. I had seen it there recently for $600, but I was hoping perhaps they were clearing out the Telus version in-store like they did with the HTC 8X a while back.

    $550 is a bit too high considering that Microsoft has an event coming on Sept 4 and a new phone may be around $700 (Lumia 1020 sequel likely as Microsoft readies pre-IFA 2014 event | News | TechRadar)

    That App provides incorrect info on a few things on my 1520, so I don't know how much we can accurately get from it.

    I wouldnt trust what that article says, all info we have now points to the 730 and 830 being made official and not a 1020 successor. Click bait, methinks.

    For WP8.1 apps, they get 800MB memory on 2GB device like Lumia 1020. There is an MSDN article explaining memory constraints.

    At the Insider app, it is showing my L 1520 having 1GB of total memory. Am I being shortchanged? Where can I find my RAM info and usage in phone settings? It doesn't seem to show.

    It also says you have a 720p screen and a much smaller resolution camera. ;). Its not an accurate App.

    Well, if he is still on WP 8.0 then this is correct. WP 8.0 Update 3 reports the device's real 1080p screen as 720p with a certain scaling factor to the apps.
