and Nokia make windows 8 tablet 7 , and 8 inch
Nokian, 26 Apr 2013Hey L520 users pls tell me how good is da video editor as compare to Nokia 603 and is there a ... moreThere is no video editor available in the market.
You can only view videos,nothing can be done with windows phöne including this 520.
Symbian 10 times better than windows phone
Hey L520 users pls tell me how good is da video editor as compare to Nokia 603 and is there a 3D view of mp3 player just like in Nokia 603.pls tel me itz urgent.
8 gb memory is free with this phone (flip cart), so It becomes 16 GB now. Also it doesn't need zune software, to connect with PC like win 7.5, it connects directly both phone and card memory are visible and one can copy paste directly, no need of sync. Cheaper,more advanced, Bigger and lighter in comparision Lumia 710.
Phone is good. I'm normal user.Battery giving 1.5 day or 2days backup. But i want 2000mAH Battery for this phone any idea guys?
porsi, 26 Apr 2013can i download apps n games from pc n is it work l520?Yes u download from ur pc also..
just go to
windowsphone.com and download any app n game and transfer to ur phone..
NOTE: when u transfer this files to ur phone dont put these files in any folder or dnt create any folder.. just copy paste on sd card only
For all those who worried abt heating problm, I think its very common for smartphone. Even my bro,s galaxy s3 heated up while browsing internet. U can go to Nokia Care to reduce ur heating problem by an upadate available for Lumia 520 as suggested by fellow commentor here. Good luck !! Switch to Lumia :)
[deleted post]> no hd video player
By HD you mean "Full HD" right? Watching Full HD (1080p) movies on a 480p screen is a complete waste of space and battery power. It will take you ages to copy over the 8GB 1080p movie to your phone and your 64GB microsd card will only be able to save at most 8 movies. Simply transcode it to 480p or 360p with one of the many, many open source tools available online. There, problem solved.
> no file manager
I know, not great but not really that important either. You can manage your videos, pictures and documents from within each respective app. And when you connect the phone to your pc you can use Windows Explorer as usual.
> whatsapp not working in background
Are you sure about this on your Lumia 520? It's supported in Lumia 920 and that means Windows Phone supports this. Maybe the installation failed on your Lumia 520?
> you can not install game or app manually
There's the app store. You click install. You can also do it "manually" but do you really want to jailbreak your Lumia just to side-load apps?
Any app dev worth his salt will put up his app on the store. The only ones I know that aren't are pirated/hacked/modded apps which is illegal and robs hard-working devs of their hard-earned money.
> limited game and apps
> wp8 in not for smartphone i hate this
> in future i can't buy Windows phone
> heating is common issue in smartphone
I think Android deserves you more than Windows Phone. The only reason I took the time to reply was to provide answers for other readers who read your questions and start wondering themselves.
