After that some questions are details are taken for […]

I got a couple requests to do a gaming test of the Lumia 1320; so here it is. Games in general ran pretty smoothly, and seeing how it’s not a 512 mb device all games were available to play; that is if you have enough available memory. http://youtu.be/rkDIUUBDi1Q   For some reason Temple Run 2 […]
