Im using this phone since a week. And now its d tym to write abt it.. I was an android user since 2 years and had used 4 devices. I am an average money guy so my budget fr an smart phone is not more than 12K. I love android really its d best but the main reason why i moved on frm an android device to a wp8 is its lags.. I got highly frustrated due to the hanging problem of androids. Androids hangs and hangs and hangs and is a shit at 10k. Then i heard abt this Lumia 520. And when i checked its specs nd hardware i got amazed.. At 10k nokia is providng what what a Samsung and a Sony can neva eva think off. Now abt my personal experience and its comparison wth an android device at 10k.
1. HARDWARE: LUMIA 520 IS far more ahead in terms of hardware. No andro device is providing such specs at this price.
2. PERFORMANCE: SCREEN and touch response of this phone can not be compared with any android device at this price. Its fluid dnt have wrds. This is like freedome to me frm a laggy android phone as in ny last android device it was a hell to scroll through menue, even opening call log was a hell.
APPS: IN THIS DEPARTMENT android beats windows from a large margine. This dissapointed me the most as i am not able to find my fav apps yet. And the common app dat are available in windows are not upto the mark as they r in android or an ios. But the basic apps fat i require on daily basis are very good and atlre available. Like whatsapp, nimbuzz, youtube, fb, photo editors, true caller, etc..
i can conclude dat windows phone 8 is still very immature and required many more features. But if u r a normal user this phone is a heaven. Coz if u r planning to buy an android at 10k plz don't waste ur money.. Go for Lumia 520

wp8 lvr, 17 Apr 2013awsome brwsing speed dude.. and all lumia supports 720p video recording with cam.. and it play... morewhich player.. ?
otherwise win 8 OS doesn't support directly mkv file .(lumia 520 )
camera quality is bad-->use lenses for better camera result, heating problem , no file manager .
battery back up superb, internet speed superb ,
most of the good application is not free...
What kind of plastic is the back cover? It looks to me in the pictures as it would be soft touch but is it. I´m thinking I could buy this but if the plastic is just normal then I fear that the gripp might be guite bad.
awesome....................................................................simply amazing apps and games loving

Ha ha ;) troller making themselves foola during commenting.They're just un conscious about savings they're IP code.what ever,I'm sure if the W8 OS would made by Google, android fans would be tell that IT'S THE MOST INNOVATIVE ONE TILL NOW, AT POWER DISTRIBUTION.but they're just blindfollower.
i neither Android lover nor WP8 lover , but still wants to give my honest opinion about WP8 & devices. few factors are,
1>OS & perf
1>OS & perf
As far as Android is concern, OS is good but not at all stable, unnecessarily eats up battery, which causes less battery life. nothing can be done in that scenario since architecture of Android is made such a way..
if we see the Windows phone 8 OS, it is designed to give gud performance along with minimal battery usage.. here is the identity of MS. architecture is made in such a way that OS wont waste battery unnecessarily.. so battery life is longer than other OS phones.
2> as far as the apps are concern IOS and Android is still leading the market , but the fact is MS has just launched their OS and as per my research around TOP 46 apps in IOS and Android is available in WP8 with same operation(this is i personally seen can't provide Apps list here , u can search on web u will get any where). Now my question to Android lvrs who are complaining abt apps in WP8, how many apps u really use on daily basis???
and every one know about MS and their products how fast and innovative they are.
every one knows how nokia is famous for its built quality.. remember the old days where nokia has given the most robust devices and still it is continuing (this is my self experience,i own lumia 820 from 2 months)in the smartphones too..(e.g. Lumia 520 which give IPS LCD, which is extra protection during accidental cases protect ur screen)
have anyone heard of any other company(Samsung,HTC, Micromax) providing such robust devices?? Samsung is the biggest dumbo i found as far as the built quality is concern, 1 more thing i wants to highlight there is no innovation u will find in Samsung or HTC or Micromax devices , they just do copy from other companies and sell their crappy devices with cheap rate.
4> now come to pricing, i guess no one will provide above 3 features in a price of 10K.. remember prices are decided after taking opinions of expert reviewers in the market who are normal users. and Lumia 520 with 10K one the e.g. for it.
i brought this phone my battery drains fast it dont have nokia logo on it why nokia dummy battery
Hey guys i bought this mobile 8 days ago...this one is awesome phone i ever used....
faney hazel, 19 Apr 2013Hey can u tell me after how much time 520 get heated... ?!!!it heats a little bit while playing games and continuous browsing internet...but don't worry it doesn't effects on its performance it remains smooth :)
To all people who have commented bad about this phone here comes by value towards this phone and WP8.
I'm using Andr for last 2 years and got a chance of using this phone before 2 days.
Performance is massive and very easy. Just to update you all the touch is very smooth compared to S3.
Yes Andr is best than WP8, however im sure this phone will be in first place.
Very cheap and very cute this handset is.
