    My friend iPhone 4s had a 512Mb RAM . I'm a Lumia 620 user that also had the same RAM amount . So , why I can't play some games like Monster University , Dungeon Hunter 4 or the coming GTA mobile game .

    You should ask the developer/s. IMO intensive games obviously use a lot of memory, and in some cases if these game were to run on a device with low RAM, it would probably crash and exit. Not a pleasant experience. But you can try to install those games on your 620 and see if they run fine (Halo SA runs just fine on 512MB devices, Temple Run as well).

    When new games/apps are released they are usually limited to 1 GB devices, later developers (most of them) do provide updated versions for 512 MB devices. In cases like this, ones best bet it to reach out to the app developers/support team for an answer.

    Again, ask the developers, its their decision...or even if there is an OS constraint they would be the best persons to answer

    It's more about the graphics processing unit that comes with the processor than the amount of RAM. After all, an Xbox 360 only has 512 MB of RAM.

    It does but not in this case. The 620 comes w/ an Adreno 305 which is more than capable of running the games you mentioned (it does on Android).

    Every operating system utilizes the ram in different ways. Some may be able to run things in less amount but with some cons. Thats pretty much it. The game devs try to benchmark the game on the best performance according to hardware and distribute it accordingly.
