I had sold my Lumia 520 before that game comes. But I had tried Six-Guns, it played fine, smooth enough. For N.O.V.A 3, and other games like Amazing Spiderman, Chaos Ring, Order & Chaos, Dark Knight Rises, Mass Effect: Infiltrator, require 1 GB or more RAM only.
LaughinDiarrheaBaby, 25 Jan 2014Oh. right. One last thing. Does windows shop has a ds emulator? You know the ones that can m... moreNintendo DS emulator? Not available, right now only PlayStation 1 emulator (paid), SMS (SEGA.....), it's paid too, Snes8x.
Superb phone I got in my life.. I used several branded phones previously, but the features I got from this within this price level are Marvelous. Superb display, battery life and also the windows OS is gives me pleasurable feeling
JUST TO MAKE SURE THAT I'M CLEAR:
You can obviously scroll up and down on android
phones and it's working. The issue is it's a very unpleasant scrolling (feels a little lag and shaky and doesn't flow smoothly like on windows or apple devices).
The smaller the screen the more annoying the unpleasant scrolling feels! And please stop calling me windows boy or apple boy. This is so childish.
Go to AT&T store and scroll the Windows Phone and any Android device and you will see the difference!
This phone is the best basic smartphone!
And the price is $50 to $80 for prepaid carriers in US is just amazing!
~Simple and mature interface
~Lag free smooth scrolling (not like on android, especially cheap android devices)
~Perfectly designed and lay out of virtual keyboard (not like on androind)
~Basic phone menu is very bad
~Boring themes, tiles and colors
I had posted theme link only to realize we all that what we all are missing by this too much restrictions from MS..my moto is not to hurt any platform users but simply to tell some opinion which I think should be their in this handset..im little sure that most of the people will like that theme idea ...it will give a dashing look to all Lumia phones
If this phone provides an ability to support some mindblowing pics theme than it will look awsome click/open below link

Sreelakshmi520, 25 Jan 2014Someone here talking lots and lots about windows phone's security. what kind of security i... moreIf practically seeing than u r right ...yes u r right their should be particular app lock instead of whole mobile lock...your point is right according to me
Someone here talking lots and lots about windows phone's security.
what kind of security it have??
its only security measure to protect user data is screen lock password... There is no other option besides the number lock system. its really irritating using number lock system specially if you are in travel. I personally prefer pattern lock. But there no option.
everything is open in this phone inbox, mail hub, video hub, no password lock for WhatsApp, no applock... Everything is open.
still saying secure??
its like a home without doors. Anyone can steal your data if your phone is lost or being theft. Be aware of it guys. Don't store your private data's in this phone, it will put you in danger.
Oh. right. One last thing.
Does windows shop has a ds emulator?
You know the ones that can make you play ds games on wp8?
LaughinDiarrheaBaby, 25 Jan 2014Hey, guys Uhmm. I just wanna know does this phone runs games smoothly like asphalt8 or modernc... moreLol..
520 supports asphalt 8 but not modern combat 4..
go for 525.. it supports all games n runs smoothly..
dhaval1234, 25 Jan 2014Now u r changing ur comment that we are talking about os integrated ...first u told about file... moreDude m not use worse word anywhere in entire my past coments..
it is ur mind creation. so please dont put such kind of blame on me..
few things r missing in wp8 n users reported to ms from all directions of world.. so next wp8.1 blueupdate is major update n ms preparing lots of user demanding features in it.. hope ms include file management in it.. or do something for more better managment of files..
according to leaked news ms integrates facebook n tweeter deeply in wp8.1... also cortana n notification centre n lot lot more..
please dont fight dude..
Hey, guys Uhmm. I just wanna know does this phone runs games smoothly like asphalt8 or moderncombat4 or maybe nova 3. Like that games? Does Lumia 520 runs them smoothly? Huh?! Huh?! Answer me PEOPLE! Come on! Anyone know? None? None?! What da? You guys don't know? Well, all I can say to you all is WHAT DA? GoodLuck to all of you!
dhaval1234, 25 Jan 2014Now u r changing ur comment that we are talking about os integrated ...first u told about file... more1- Sory dhaval dude last coment is not for u.. it is for this sunil who showing 3rd party ios file manager app..
2- dude m not saying this gud n that is worse.. Ther is only point is secure n unsecure..
m not say anywhere that android is worse.. every os has its own advantages and disadvantages.. merits-demerits..
desktop windows like xp is already a open same like android.. so we cant count these type os in under security line..
in now days microsoft is very serious about security issentials.. mac n ios are already secured.. apple not sacrifice ther security issentials..
same thing now microsoftdoing.. desktop windows is very vast like android so it is not possible to make secure in single attemptsor single update.. they r doing it with chain of contineous updates now.
3- but u knw wp8 is recent creation by ms.. so they r totaly made it under d hood of security barrier.. they tackle low end market where android is already king.. n android n symbian users r already prepare to live in all freedom without caring of ther personal security..
now these users like u n me r demanding all features like file manager.. but i dont think ms implement it. all wants file manager but if it affects on os security then definetly ms not implement file manager for wp8.. even apple also not include os integrated file manager in ios in such long development period..
4- m not telling wp8 worse or android worse.. every os has pros n cons..
apple and now ms r very serious about security of os n if few features r interrupt in this then definetly os makers drop these features.. coz security issentials is ther 1st goal..
5- so please dont assume things in ur mind which m not said that android is worst.. nothing is perfect in d world..
m not forcing any1 to buy this n drop other.. its individuals decision.
