This phone was great to begin with but I soon regretted buying mine after a few weeks.
As a phone, it's fine. Loads of nice alerts to choose from and clear audio when speaking to someone.
However as a 'smartphone' this seriously falls short. It is quite obviously not as 'smart' as it thinks it is and daily tasks such as using the browser is an experience I don't look forward to. Excruciatingly slow page loads and when it does then you find that you have to magnify the page to actually read it. This results in having to wait yet again for the page to load. Then you choose the 'Column View' option so that the page loads up (yes, again) within your browser in a decent size. Sadly I have tried and failed to find a way of making this a default option whenever browsing - it doesn't exist.
My 8520 has a habit of freezing on certain apps. I use a couple of radio apps and this is particularly annoying when listening to a song and it just suddenly loses connection. A phone reset is required (either pull the battery or ALT+SHIFT+DEL. Sadly this is a 6+ minute process.
The camera is particularly bad unless you have plenty of natural daylight. Forget indoor shots in the evening.
In conclusion, it's just a glorified phone. As a smartphone, it seems to have delusions of grandeur which makes it anything but smart.
