Lumia 520 is the best low range phone. Lumia 525 will be the same.
Anonymous, 31 Jan 2014Even in Finland the 1020 has flopped. Many commenters around here also been praising the 1020 ... moregood phone, bad price.
contrast with L520 which is priced perfectly, especially considering the specs and the android competition within its price range.
oh yeah right,, i can say that lumia520 can beat the androids in the same range.. and i dont see lumia520 as a low end Wp8, and its a fast phone and amazing screen resolution,, for me morethan enough..
Then I just thought that Nokia won back to back in Gsmarena's Smartphone League. In the real world, the Nokia Lumias are losers. The total phones shipped for 2013 is even lower comparable to 2012. Well, congratulations anyway for winning the unimportant, insignificant, senseless competition that is the Smartphone league.

Besides your obviously contradictory statement, the comment was about low range phones like the 520 being the future, since it's clear you've forgotten.

I think your market analytic are based on one person (you) and some of his relatives.
Even in Finland the 1020 has flopped. Many commenters around here also been praising the 1020 so much yet noone is buying it, i wonder why? It did so well in the votes also but still noone wants it. Could it be because it simply is a bad phone with a bad OS? Yes it is, even the fanboys dont want one.
bobby the great, 30 Jan 2014I have a z1 and a few friends have the HTC one, not everyone wants plastic or iOSSize of those two phones is ridiculous! Htc one got two speakers making it bigger and and for some reason the Z1 has all that unused area top and bottom - my xperia T has less bezel top and bottom - anyway the sirious - Z2 should be a little better!
So this means that 34.5%of people wont have access to the full range of windows apps?
still rather have low end lumia than galaxy mini and xperia E - horrible little phones!
Nokia Time is Over.. Now Samsung Or Sony is most Popular.Nokia is going to finesh.
Having around 35 different phones (cheap and very expensive) since late 2000 I must say that Lumia 520 WP8 is the most balanced phone out there and I really enjoy using it. I've had iPhone, Android phone, however WP8 gives me the best user experience and next phone will be WP8 phone.
paco1x, 31 Jan 2014This low-end trend for WP is not a bad thing at all... low-end handsets are usually a bridge f... moreI doubt that what you say will become true at least not in the near future, If you look at the attachment rate of WP it proves that most are lumia 520 users, and besides one can simply argue "my low-end phone performs just as well as yours so why would I bother to get a high-end one, besides I use it mostly for texts and calls not for taking pictures or anything else", if they don't give reason to pull the consumer towards high-end handsets then I don't see why the trend should change.
iPhone will kill this low end company soon. cause it cant beat apple on high end. bye Bye Wee Phones :3

It is making a major dent to the low end market simply because Low end Android devices are a nightmare, to be honest. Anything that comes with less than 1 GB RAM and 4 GB storage is awful to use....
