    WP8 cannot manage fixed memory?

    The reviewer of the Samsung ATIV Odyssey running Windows Phone 8 (see the attached PDF file) finds that deleting Apps does not free memory & fixed memory cannot be freed except by resetting the phone!

    I expect this is a phone problem and not a WP8 problem.

    Have the WP8-using forum readers seen this on their phones?

    I had never worried about it, but I just went to check with my Nokia Lumia 620. I checked the storage space taken by an app I hardly used, was taking 20 MB. I removed the app and the used memory decreased by 20 MB. Seems your reviewer is not correct.

    I also never saw anyone complaining about this. There was an issue related to memory, the "other storage" issue, for which Nokia has already provided a fix and that is supposed to be fixed for all Windows Phones in WP8 GRD2, expected to come out in August.

    I don't see a reason why anyone would buy a Windows Phone from Samsung. Their commitment to the platform is almost non existent and Nokia offers the best software package, attached to the best hardware offerings, as well, IMHO.

    Same here I just checked on my HTC 8X and the space appeared to be released.

    Have you gotten the new Bing search update yet... Pretty nice, at least I like it
