Its just that they let the public know about the new OS very when its going to launch with some new phones.
AnonD-288780, 29 Jul 2014This is definately my first and last Windows phone I will buy. What i do like a bout Windows p... moreIt looks like u like the metro style of windows.
I know it sucks at app like of social media but u know what it sucks on android platform too that's why we can find other people making those apps.
No phone supports true multitasking except symbians and rarely some ( I am sure no android supports)
The same thing is with battery again, android os is resource hungry that's why it uses much battery even if WiFi and other services is not running.
If you compare WP to Android,ist little bit lag is present in Android phones because of less ram as compared to WP,if given 1 GB lag will gone I would say it is because of options Android is providing,second at multi tasking Android wins the app doesnot close but run at the background so when you open it it does not show any lag but in wp it stop its app and when you resume the app start it from beginning,third battery bases I would say even wp is not running any thing it consumes more power than Android even Android takes lot of resources,fourth Android doesnot need any frequent update as it is already a perfect rather than wp which always need updates,fifth as app view Android provide sea of apps than wp
as above personal comparison I would say Android is a winner this is my personal opinion after using both devices
I would say phone side it is an average one but multi tasking is bad if you do multi tasking lf you go for last app it will start from beginning means you lose most of you progress why it is smooth in comparison to Android is it doesnot have any thing settings are like a children with no option battery life is average

John.., 29 Jul 2014Hello friends i using this phone last year everything is ok except games download it require a... moreThose who are facing download over Wi-Fi issue for less than 100MB apps and games, try this:
(it worked for me many times on TATA DOCOMO network)
1.Switch off and remove your SIM
2.Insert same company but different SIM and turn on phone and data connection for 2-5 minutes
3.Turn off data and switch off phone
4.replace your 1st sim card and turn on phone and data connection.
Now go to store and check downloads.
I'm not sure it will work on every network and every device, but trying is better than crying :)

If first u r android user than go for android and leave this forum
Reaper7, 29 Jul 2014Looks like u really don't have any brains about approval process or u r acting dumb to troll here.approval process is a joke its all about market purpose that someone fool like you would never understand
This is definately my first and last Windows phone I will buy. What i do like a bout Windows phone is the live tiles and how much you can customise your home screen but thats basically the only good thing about it.
Now for the Bad.
Firstly THE APPS SUCK!!!!
If you like social media such as facebook, instagram, snapchat, skype etc. STAND CLEAR OF WINDOWS. Their apps are no where even close to the most basic android phone i had more than 3 years ago.
Secondly, IT SUCKS AT MULTITASKING
If you have more than 2 apps open, prepared to wait forever if you minimise it and reopen it later. For example, If you have your facebook opened to a certain page, then switch to your browser, and finally open skype, when you switch back to facebook, it will restart the entire app and you will have to scroll through the entire thing in attemp to find where you were before. And lets say you want to switch back to instagram. THE SAME THING AGAIN!
Thirdly, THE BATTERY LIFE IS HORRIBLE!
I know the battery isnt really that big but most times i have to turn off my data and all my applications just fo me to get through the day, with minimal usage. If I turn on my data and/or WiFi, I lose Literally 15% of the battery in 20 minutes or less. This is really annoying!
The Camera is suprisingly good at taking pictures reallllly close, but it is EXTREMELY SLOW.
I could probably write a 25 page essay about this phone and other windows phones I've used but thats how i would leave it for now. Hope this was useful to someone

In fact you can't install a big game in android budget phone with 2gb Usable internal memory with latest android.. Where Lumia 520 with WP8.1 you can get almost 4.8 Gb internal plus SD card up to 64 Gb, you can install asphalt 8, six guns, like big games at the same time and phone doesn't lag

I use 101 apps on nokia Lumia 520 and it never hang or lags wp platform is clean while android is polluted by unnecessary apps.
