If you loved the Nokia Lumia 630, but simply did not want to get into settling for less RAM; in short, less RAM does matter. But in the long run things are indeed about to change.
Less RAM means no Angry Birds GO!, no high-quality textures for Asphalt and certainly a fewer gaming titles. Less RAM then clearly translates into fewer games to play, but certainly does not limit the number of apps that you can use. Most of the important apps in the Windows Phone Store work well on the Lumia 630. Even multi-tasking is as smooth as ever. Still then we crib when we have less RAM on a Windows Phone.
If you ask us, the combination of a quicker processor and less RAM simply indicates that Microsoft is indeed out to prove itself. Google did the same with KitKat and now we finally have phones like the Samsung GALAXY ACE Style. The phone is powered by KitKat and runs smoothly along with Samsung’s customisations with just 512MB of RAM. Software running smoothly on less RAM clearly makes Nokia look more like Apple which makes iOS7 run smoothly even on the Apple iPhone 4s (not the iPhone 4).
From the manufacturing point of view, optimising your software to run on lesser hardware translates into profits. So yes, Microsoft is indeed making a good profit somewhere and will still have satisfied customers who are holding a well-built handset running the latest version of the OS. In short Microsoft needed a platform to prove that older Windows Phones will indeed work smoothly on 512MB RAM devices and the Nokia Lumia 630 proved just that. But in the end, customers do feel left out which is why we think that Microsoft should indeed put a cap to the amount of RAM that any app uses and stick to it.
