Mayur, 22 Mar 2013PLease guys tell me about lumia 520,does it hangs in between.. ?? and what cons are there.. ?This handset is not yet launched so none of the viewer will be able to give the answers for your doubts unless someone actually uses it.
Does any android phone that comes for 10,500 is really customizable?
None of those androids from Samsung, Sony, LG, HTC have the same specs as this phone. Lets compare the specs.
Currently Samsung ACE, Xperia E (latest model), LG Optimus L5 E615, HTC desire C are selling in Rs 10K to 12K range.
1. All those 4 phones have HVGA(320x480) screens while Lumia 520 has WVGA (480x800) screen.
Galaxy ace: Single core 832Mhz processor.
Xperia E: Single core 1Ghz processor.
HTC desire C: Single core 600Mhz processor.
LG: 800Mhz single core processor.
Lumia 520: Dual core 1Ghz S4 processor (latest architecture and much faster).
3. Memory: All those 4 android phones have 4/3 Gb internal memory and expandable up to only 32Gb.
Lumia 520 has 8 Gb internal memory and expandable up to 64Gb.
Plus Lumia 520 has super sensitive touch screen that works with nails and gloves, it has toughened display.
All those androids come with android 2.3 and Xperia E comes with 4.1 but will be never get the updates.
Windows phone 8 is not to be compaird with android .android is far behind in its MO, it has more app though copaired with windows so when u see a lumia phone like 520 with more featurs for half d moneY and u think of opening ur mouth, just make sure dat what comes out is reasonable.
guys what about watsapp ?
lumia 510 giving too much ...problem
First of all Android and Windoes are two different operating systems.
NO u would not be able to us google play on windows 8 mobile. But Windows 8 has its own app store which is will be able to cater u with the new apps. Moreover Microsoft will be providing updates to all windows 8 phone till july 2014. It means nokia windows 8 phones will be up to date.The phone however lags a front camera and flash.
Nokia Lumia 520 is a fantastic smartphone. Nokia has priced perfectly for great specifications. waiting for coming in market.

From which other smartphones will this lumia 520 get stiff competition? I do not feel there is as good a phone like this in this price. Also, will this phone spell a threat for Asha series, because the price difference between the best asha phone and the lumia 520 is minimal. People will easily walk in for this phone which is by all means far superior than any asha feature phone. okia seems to bring trouble for itself. But this is the best phone ever for Rs 10000/-
its another lame attempt by nokia to fortify windows..the only way nokia can survive is by collaborating with android
