    Will look at it later.

    Today I finally found out by accident how to put the calendar onto the lock screen. Google didn't help yesterday evening. The video would maybe show it.

    I can't really watch a 15 minute video about a phone in the lab though ;-)

    I read a bit of this LG G3 lag thread in the Android forum and people there say: "If you don't see the lag, you're in denial."

    So I really tried to rid myself of any denying thoughts and had a look at my phone: I don't see it. Everything is smooth and apps open instantly, even when they are not running in the background. What I noticed is that when I go into the app list it's not absolute instantly. That was however mentioned in the reviews, and it doesn't seem like a lag either.

    That means for me: It doesn't matter if I'm in denial or not, for me it's absolutely fine and the apps opening that fast is amazing. Might have something to do with the 3GB RAM though, I don't know.

    Already the comments section is filling up with people disappointed with the 512MB. Others defending it and of course comments about Android.

    Yep it's the same all over again. It's groundhog year for WP. :P

    It's a budget device. You want more features, pay for it. Not to mention that it costs less than the 520 did at launch.

    Stop trying to defend MS. The excuses don't hold water. They should have dumped the 512MB RAM devices this time around. They obviously didn't want to. It also has only 4GB storage.

    They're going to have a hard time convincing people to purchase something like this.

    I admit, it's a disappointment from the 520, The trade off's for the 530 aren't worth it.

    I personally don't care. I wouldn't touch a 512MB device personally. Regardless of how good WP works with 512MB.

    There's no reason that 512MB devices should exist for WP. Unless the phone cost under 30.

    I'm just stating a valid point. You can't expect to get the features of a Ferrari at the price of a Toyota. :P

    Hasn't anybody noticed that Nokia is downgrading their naming scheme?! The 630 actually a successor to the 520, and the 530 is the successor to a non existent 420. Obviously MS wouldn't want a 400 series Lumia line. :| They want to make cheaper and more affordable Lumias.

    But, Microsoft has halved the storage, removed the auto focus for a fixed focus, made the phone almost 2mm thicker and lowered the video recording resolution, It's most likely gonna sell better than the 630 the 630 should've gotten 1GB of RAM...

    And if they don't discontinue the 520, the 520 has a good chance of outselling it's predecessor!

    They also added a snapdragon 200 1.2Ghz quad core processor, which for a device priced at 7000inr is a killer feature. The 630 and 530 are both budget devices. The Lumia 730 will be a midrange device. If it doesn't have 512mb ram, your complaint wil be completely valid.
