Another thing..bad thing and wierd is this: when i restart my phone, the percent of battery decrease with 5%!!!! Whaaat!? How could be possible something like that!? I mean..if i restart my phone 20 times continuosly(if the battery is full) and this thing it take few minute(to restart the phone 20 times)..the battery reach 0%!! Yes..just like this..because 5% for 20 times is 100%..anybody have observe that problem with the 5% drain after the each restart!? Damn! Day by day this phone show me cuz is hust awfuul!! This fast as lighting battery drain,just make me life..real hell! I need to said myself: keep calm! Keep calm,boy..is just a phone!!

> In reply to shubham @ 2014-12-07 18:38 from Y}K4 - click to readShubham..believe me,i allready do those steps..all 5 of them..long time ago..like after just one month after i buy the phone,but same results,ok..maybe with those 5 steps you enumarate and with another few tips,battery increase duration with just an freking hour! I ask myself..Nokia introduce in million divices(i'm talking about this device) good battery and poor battery and when we buy'it..some have luky and buy a phone with a good battery,and some have unluky to get the phone with the poor battery!? I said that because lots of people said the battery life is 2 days or maybe more on medium using..and others said the battery life is so short! Ok..i repeat: its reeeally anoyng to see battery drain like 22-25% after one hour talk-time in 2G!! I mean..why!?? Its not normal..ok,i understand the fast draining when i watch a movie on the phone,when i play a game,the screen,is all time on,but when i talk the phone..display is of because the sensor! I said that because i know display on.."eat" the battery faster! I wanna change the battery, i'm gonna buy another one in few days,but..i-m afraid this is just not enough..i-m so sure! All the batrery of this Lumia 520..are to small..and daaamn, i don-t think the actual battery is allready die..is to soon for that..just 3 months of using the phone!! What other tips you have guys,for this phone to give more power to this little and crappy battery!? Thanks,and..again,sorry for bad english!

> In reply to MichaellGrim @ 2014-12-07 17:09 from srr7 - click to readwell i dont know why nokia not giving battery like 1800 or more mah but you can increase your battery life by doing following things.....
1. always use automatic mode of brightness
2. use maximum wifi
3. turn off your vibration of navigation keyes
4. turn off your double tap to wake up

and most important

5. when you put your mobile to charge dont remove wait for get full charge and when your battery get down thatn 20% after that put your charger.
i am using all of these things and now my phone giving better backup..

A battery compatible with this phone..with a higher mah..something like..1800-2000 mah..its that posible!? 1430 for a phone with this specifications: dual core procesor, 512 mb ram..and the 4 inch display,i tell you is a little small! Why the tehnology has evolved so fast on the smartphones..but the batteries is so backtime..like in stoneedge :))..the phone,this phone lumia 520,is quit a good phone..i like allmost everything..but..please..the battery life ruined all good things on this phone! Hate that little battery! I have do all the resets, hard resets..updates,low brightness,saver battery on,etc..but no result! I don-t understand the guys who said "my battery life of my Lumia 520,had a 2 days life or better" reaaallyy!? But how that!? You luky ones!

Lumia 520 is low price best phone

It can play mp3,mp4 by default player
Also we can download moli player for other format like .mkv .flv

There was sharing problem in windows phone 7 and 8 now in windows phone 8.1 lots of software are available for sharing

To transfer through wi-fi "easy transfer" software is available

New WhatsApp version is too much good.

Screen clarity is too good
Cloud ☁ support is good

There is no chance of missing contracts, photos, massages we can sync it to OneDrive.

If any one buy a windows phone n and login through your divide Microsoft automatically increases your cloud space
Now I have 50GB space I can store whole life in this space.

> In reply to Anonymous @ 2014-12-07 04:57 from 7Fkx - click to readYou are right! The battery is soooo bad! I mean, i was talk on phone just about 4 hour continuosly and i start the call when the battery it was fully charged..and after 4 hours it was finished the battery! I mean..where is the 11-14 hours battery duration on call talk!? And another thing..i use the 2G internet with data mobile(not wifi) and the battery drain in 3 and a half hours 100-0%! So..the results of the test of this Lumia 520 are wrong or what!? So..Lumia 520 has few good things: The thouchscreen is verry good and responsive,the call sound quality is good,the design is cool,it run gooood movies quality on full screen! The bad part on this Lia is the BATTERY!! I use normaly..few calls about 1 hours..some msg..about 20-30 msg..15 minutes of browsing in 2G..and the battery is drain in about 10-12 hours!!! That is really bad!! I ask..why!? I have this phone just for 3 months! I don-t think the battery is already dying!! So..what is the problem with the baterry!? Sorry for my english!
