First you said about lack of customization and then later changed that to features offered by Android widely. What weird is, you said you don't blindly trust reviews and yet you bought a Windows Phone 8 blindly. You should have done before some observations when you were buying a 520. It's not "Microsoft's" or "Nokia's" fault that you don't like their device. It's basically your own fault and therefore, what right do you got to bash Microsoft when you yourself hadn't studied about it's offerings?

I am asking for customization and wifi sharing and such stuff which you just wrote is not termed as customization. Rather called as 'features'. I am asking for customizations besides installing custom roms and bloatwares which you have denied earlier.

What do you think they are doing with their mobile phones by testing sunlight readings, speakers clarifications, benchmarks, internet speed test, software, call quality etc? And why the answer is no? Any tough evidence or legit reason?

It's now a common problem though. http://discussions.nokia.com/t...td-p/2087345

and I've a question, can you wake up your Lumia 520 by pressing the camera shutter key ? Or take a picture with the same key?? I've asked the same to my college mates who have Lumia 520, they said that the key DOESN'T words at all, same as mine. I've tried it by removing the back cover too, but not succeed.

There is no denying that customization like Android is not available in Windows Phone 8 and for you, it's best but for me, it's worst. I don't like my device to get bloated with useless stuff, installing custom ROMs etc. I like my device to be smooth and simple from day 1.

But I have nothing to do with it because I'm still waiting for Moto g to come in India. the 1st time I brought anything blindly because I love Nokia and their dedication to their products, and now I feel cheated only because of this OS.

as you're saying, maybe my device is the only faulty device but it has nothing to do with me !..when some random people call me a liar, I get frustrate a lot.
I'm a teenager, love to customize my things, but with this OS I feel like living in a jail.

The reviewed units are bought and are not pre-released units but are final products of a company can offer. They are being taken to the respective labs and being tested there. What they do there is test them up to their limits. They test them in a way how you use them in real life. This is just invalid in saying following a review blindly when as a matter of fact, they are done for you to give an idea of the real life performance.

Believe it or not but Android doesn't run lag-free under a dual-core or a Single GB of RAM with the exception of Moto G. Nexus line-ups doesn't got heavy bloatwares like Touchwiz etc. They are vanilla flavored Android and they tend to work flawlessly because of no extra functionality which doesn't belong to Android. If you want to test everything yourself, you can buy each and every low end smartphone to make yourself satisfied what the THOUSANDS of other tech sites saying from the very beginning of testing a low end Android with the results of laggy etc. This is a universal truth and if you still tend to disagree of want to go by your opinion and be a man of dependency, then I can't do anything for you.

Once again, what he did is to point you out about the performance of Android and Windows Phone at a certain range and hardware. Not only GSMARena, but other many tech sites called Windows Phone as the super smooth operating system. If your device is not working perfectly, it's yours. I don't know what you are doing with it but I own a Lumia 920, 520 and 1020. The 520 is with me for the past 10 months and there is no sign of slow-down performance or lag but once again, it's your device and you are well aware of it. May be, you got a faulty unit or you made it faulty. Who knows...

Once again, REVIEWS are REAL WORLD PERFORMANCE of a smartphone. You can't even call a liar to someone who is stating that the review of a unit is saying this and that. This will only define your ignorance over a certain aspect of mobile tech.

Now, collecting and summarizing your own point. Darknite bash Android lovers, you bash Windows Phone 8 lovers. Aren't you two equal? What makes me feel weird is that you got a Windows Phone 8 low-end device and you only do is to bash Microsoft, Microsoft fanboys, Nokia and highly praise Android and this almost makes me think if you have so much problems with a WP8 and you love so much Android, why you still had got a WP and don't have an Android yet.... Weird, isn't it?

WP doesn't lag at all. I myself use Android and I admit android lags even if it is Quad Core. Windows may lag in single core 1 GHz processor but in Dual core its better than Android is Quad Core. This is the main issue in Android that it doesn't manages resources efficiently specially battery, processor and memory. But might be in Android 5.0 Key Lime pie these issues are resolves also security as 80% Android phones are virus affected but no iPhone or WP.

But what about the real world performance I'm talking about...the review saying this -review saying that, why should I believe in a review and blindly follow them without any logic?? Tell me why ? You got a review of NL510 saying that the phone is super smooth, but why don't you check out the review of asha501 ?? I bet Asha is better than NL510. Again, if you so much believe in review of gsma, check out their review of NL520, they said the phone has 2mics 1 primary, 1 secondary, but with 9 months of experience with my phone I've not found any secondary microphone in my NL520. This is real life.

nexus s lagging, ok, as I've never seen that phone in real life, I'm not saying anything. And about GS duos2, no comments because I've no experience with it.

i don't know about you, how do you react when someone call you a liar, but for me it doesn't seem to be funny.
as you only believe in REVIEWS than real world performance, so I could call you a liar, because you bash android lovers with your knowledge of reviews.
there's a lot of difference between theoretical and practical life.

" Yet, you shouldn't fear lags and
underperformance. This is a starter
package but by no means a poor
smartphone - a handset with a
consciously simple and fluid
interface."
Review of a newer s duos,with 3 times and 25% higher cpu clockspeed compared to 510 says-
" However, there's no getting away
from the fact that the device is at
times sluggish to get around the
Nature UX and load some heavier
apps. "
Review of nexus s with again much better cpu and ram-
" The stability of the OS wasn’t rock
solid though – it is a very new
version but the video player crashed
on us a few times, even the live
wallpapers managed to crash."

So,again,what were you lying???
