Have u ever experience any heating?
Day-before (Wed, 24th Apr evening) bought a Nokia Lumia 520. Its an awesome phone for this price range- I have already a lot of apps, about 7000 contacts (yes - 7k - but lots & lots & lots of duplicates)& also 7 email in boxes. Except one Yahoo account - all are working without a glitch and the speed is also also very fast - no lag at all!!
Even on a 2G connection, the email and the attachments were downloanding quite fast (same as an iPhone) but my Android Tab2 is cosniderably slowerthan the L520 in this department.
Earlier I was using a iPhone and I think the windows mobile 8 UI and features take some getting used to, but otherwise, it seems more smart and sensible than the iOS UI
There is all kinds of music in the Nokia store - all available for FREE. I found even a lot of very old (1960s, 70s) carnatic music there. Delighted !!
The speaker is quite loud, though I would have been happier to see a stereo. Camera is a bit dull, but about the same or a tad better than an iPhone 3GS
The call quality is a bit dull (sounds muffled) if the signal on either side is a bit weak or if the other person (Who is speaking is not speaking loudly or directly into the mike)- I never had this problem in any of my previous phones (iPhone 3GS, Blackberry Bold, or an Android Samsung Tab2). This is surprising since I would have expected Nokia to have better radio circuitry. Also, my old Apple's hands-free set does not work with this L520 (it can act as a music listening headphone, but the mic does not work, so it cannot be a hands-free)- but I am told that this is a problem with Apple that some of their handsets don't work with Competitors phone.
I have not yet checked it for performance in Games, and for the display effectiveness in bright direct sunlight yet.
If you found this comment/review useful -pls take a second more of ur time to say so! Thanks!!
saurav, 25 Apr 2013hey friends!! Please tell me what is the difference in 520's and 620's touchscreen. I want t... more520 screen is super sensitive touch- u can operate it with your bike/ car keys (put screen guard first!)- or even with gloves, or even with the tip of a pen. With 620, this is not possible. Check it out in a shop!

is this phone having an option if able n' disanle for data traffic, like android phones??
Dude its a big thing in less price Truely VFM
Product is rocking in every behavior --
- Smooth Touch (one of the finest touch that most of the phone above 18K doesn't have)
- Lightning Fast Snapdragon processor doesn't even make you feel slow with 512 MB RAM.
- Added beauty and performance with Windows 8
- Ultimate Camera performance with 5MP without flash (Nokia always scored good in this area).
- Proved it self to be called as best Smart-phone
- All cons to less apps in windows marketplace
- Battery Backup is not that impressive.
