And the Moto G has replaceable rear covers.... but its a 3G only device. Still, the Moto G has a better display and costs less.And you can add the WP8 style launcher to any Android phone for free.

At $220, I'd get a Lumia 925 or a Moto G... This is priced incorrectly. Also, should have put in 1GB of RAM to be able to run all programs on WP. The Lumia 835 should be in the $200-$250 range, unlocked, and available from Amazon, or another reputable dealer... If not, they will have seriously missed an opportunity...

It has a more high res display, as does the first Asus Padfone, but it's total shit in sunlight, unlike the 620 (and likely 635). I'd want to judge them side by side (and preferably outside), before giving out awards.

They seems to be using the same display in many low end, middle range models, so they probably get some synergy profit of it.

If I wanted to spend $220 on a cheap phone, I'd go with a MTK-6592 1.7ghz octocore w/ 2GB of ram.

Time for a new eye exam :D? $229 was the launch price for the old 625. The new 635 is launching at $189. Not to mention that in daily use, the 635 will be faster and better in bright light than the Moto G. Also where can you get a 925 off contract NEW for $220? You guys need to share what you're smoking! :p
Once again the 512RAM problem
On WP8 devices it's not the end of the world. On an Android 4.x device it would be pretty bad. But with WP8 it isn't a huge deal.

u seems to miss the point again. the RAM is bottlenecking the quad core. While a lot of App can tak advantages of quad core, but most will do fine on dual core if they are only require 512Ram or less. If an App manage to fully use all quad core resources, most likely it is a pretty heavy app, it will most likely need 1GB ram. This is like trying to put a 4670K on a 2GB RAM.

Sorry, I should have specified unlocked. You can get an unlocked 625 for $230. You'll soon be able to get a 635 for less.
