    Alright old topic but i am really tempted to switch from 3gs to wp8 and my last choices will be either 720 or 820.

    The only question is that will the extra 512mb ram and 500mhz processor make too much difference in terms of switching between running apps and launching apps. I heard that better ram and processor may reduce battery drain due to higher efficiency.

    This is my main concern as my 3gs is already unresponsive and sometimes it took more than a few seconds to switch between apps and launching apps.

    Thanks for all the feedback and pardon my for my bad english!!

    Only resource hungry games is when you won't be able to run - ALL WP8 apps will run smooth as butter on whatever RAM or processor the phone has.

    the loss in ram and processing speed will affect some "BIG" games, and will affect some options in some apps, such as HD video in apps like skype, it will reduce the total experience, but you wtill can do all other stuff smoothly.

    My final suggestion would be - visit 820 and 720 forums on two separate days and see what the users have to say! You would have a better idea from their first hand reviews.

    Choose the device that fits your needs. The 820 will be able to run all the new Gameloft and other high profile games come out. If your not a big gamer, the 720 is a great option and I would definitely go over each pro and con for each device.

    Games aren"t important, but my main concern is whether there will be a lot of long resuming and waiting when switching between apps or when launching apps compared between 512 and 1gb ram..i want the apps to be launch instantly
