    It takes 85MB on my Lumia 920, too. But that has nothing to do with your RAM... Your storage is 8 GB, so let's say 6 without the OS. That's plenty of storage for more than two games.

    I experience that when you download a game or application it does not delete the 'installation' you have downloaded, therefore after time it is advisable to run the Storage Check and clean the temp files.

    you can't really, the installation file will always be smaller than your actual install. Its no different than a typical PC\Mac software install.

    That counts against your 8\16\32\64 GB storage though. Not your 512\1GB RAM.

    Well as you know, Devs tried to compress the file to be able to easily download by users. So basically, the file size you saw at the download section is not really telling you that it will will be size of the game/app after installation, because it will uncompressed itself during the installation process.

    Just like most of the installers in PC, they're usually being compressed for easy download/upload by user, and decompressed itself during the installation process.
