I have a Lumina 520 phone. Not at all happy. Only IE is working, not allowing to install any other browser except opera. when I am browsing and reading something this IE used to close automatically. When am switching from one window to another, the IE used to refresh itself which makes me to loose all my typed data on that page. Sending a small video file using bluetooth is not happening. looks like struggling with low memory. still so many issues am facing often. build quality is good, appearance is attractive, compact size. overall am not satisfied with this phone. since already i spend on this, atleast next two years I should use this, since my parents wont allow to buy mobile often. my friend have a nexus7 tablet, it is excellent. next time i will buy only Android phone. I dont want windows phone again.
If you are a fun lover, wants to enjoy the social apps to its fullest then DON'T buy windows mobile. Need proof? Just use any windows mobile, open facebook, go to settings, go to feedback..then u will see numerous complain from all around the world.

Most important never ever heats nor hangs nor restart, can say its a Windows credit with 1GB Ram. All updates to apps are 20-50kb size, and very seldom. If you compare Android its more hassle free😉.

The common signs are force close (crush) various apps, unable to open photos, auto screen lock etc. It doesnt have land scape key board. But hoping that the complete version will eliminate all the draw backs. Waiting for that.

In fact at present days no OS is full proof. Now point is, should i be much concern about the security? i am not a VVIP nor CIP..i am a common person who loves to enjoy the social apps and stay connected with friends and family with the use of my mobile phones. I don't store confidential data in my phone. So i have nothing to worry about loosing any valuable data/information.
Yes..8.1 denim was much better than this 10. after updating to windows 10, number of issues have raised..force close different apps..even if i press back button for several times the screen gets locked. then i need to reopen the app. i dont know if this represents the example of a stable OS.
Unless they allow us to access google play store then within very short time they will be finished. Coz already they have lost one of their dedicated customers and i wont ever recommend any one to buy windows mobiles.
it's good mobile to see in hand having great features like one Drive ,document viewer and etc... Batery support is good if we compare to other brands. I didn't find hanging issue at any time if running multiple tasks at same time..
It's well known facts Android OS having supremacy In Smartphones market it's unbeatable.Besides various discrepancies found in the Android but it still capture the market.Windows is nowhere Windows % is just tiny.I am also an Android usser since 2011.But I opt for the Windows due to the lack of Stability and unsecured Android OS you have to agree that Windows OS is highly concerned about Its security.Windows OS is Optimized and Styles OS than the Android.
Android makes more sense for some mobile users as it's a robust platform for tablets and phones. It's now making its way onto the desktop, too. Those wanting a pure mobile UX can do well with Android.
Windows is a better mobile OS than some realize, and it would be a mistake to overlook it. Mobile devices of all types are now available with Windows 8.1, and that alone could be an advantage for some over Android.
Sj, 28 Aug 2015Like you use everything for android !lol! Even u dnt know how to use android max! Win can run ... moreWell..not only me..but rest of the world thinks every thing is in android..so please control your emotion and look at the stats:
Market share of android, iOS and windows are shown respectively in the last few years..
So u can see windows doesnt even stand for the competition. According to Forbes the android and iOS have destroyed the competition while windows is struggling for sustaining. As on 2015 78 people out of 100 using android where windows user is nearly 3. Do u think they are fool?
Windows is no where near android so please stop being emotional and dramatic. Coz reality is something that u won't realize.

I dont appreciate who instead of helping starts criticizing people. If you are so experienced then give me some solutions how to overcome these limitations? can you add the features that are missing in this device? My point of interest is the social apps. My opinions are based on my user experience. I may not have that experience like you but good enough to understand the advantages and disadvantages.
I have been using microsoft lumia 640 xl for last 2 weeks. And I'm completely satisified. This phone has great features with no cons. If it comes to rating I will give 10/10. The great features are:- 1. Camera quality( front and rare ) superb my family too say, 2. Great call quality, 3. Screen size which makes it easier for typing, 4.Smooth performance no lags and never heats up ,5. Battery backup excellent , 6. fits easily in pocket, 7. Apps are awesome and sufficient yet some important apps are missing. I love this phone very much + every lumia series and Microsoft. I recommend this to everyone . So go for lumia , use it and have fun . It is much better than android. And the greatest feature is kids corner + cortana.
AnonD-304792, 28 Aug 2015A suggestion...if you are a social apps lover (facebook, viber, instagram, whatsapp etc) then ... moreYou should have researched the information before you buy this phone. I get ur point saying that camera isn't the first concern to make a decision in buying phone, but you also arguing to show you proofs that this phone having a disappointing camera. But after you are given the proof by someone and that person told you to learn how to use this before you arguing, you even don't want to accept it. You said it again that you can use a mobile phone camera properly, but you are just not.
However, I read many of your opinions are based on disappointment and hatred, dramatic emotionally, not based on your experience. Maybe, but just a little.
A wise people talking the advantage and disadvantage of something while putting comment, because they experience it.
Just be a wiser people. Sorry to say that. ;)
