microsoftfffff, 28 Jul 2014lol android is perfect even its update way is laggy, window even does not provide basic necess... moreI use Samsung galaxy s3, s2,ace 2, and sony tipo after using them i must say that windows phones are best all necessary apps there .Android are lagdroids even Samsung s3 hangs on 30 apps. 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.
m.hossain, 29 Jul 2014Does Lumia 520 support windows 8.1 GDR1?Yes, it ll support every update that MS ll throw at it..
Hello friends i using this phone last year everything is ok except games download it require always wi-fi network every game which may be more than 30 mb this is make me irritate so pls change it Microsoft....make it like android market...

Anonymous, 29 Jul 2014You are commenting VLC is coming soon since 1 year... Don't you have any shame?hey man mind ur tongue ok... dont act like u dnt have shame..
1- if u check my old comments I already stated that VLC for wp is comming in august.
I agree that VLC devs takes almost 1.5 yrs to rewrite codes.. coz old codes r not compatible for w8 n wp8 which runs on latest kernel (.NET)..
They already released new VLC for RT users.. now its time of wp version n dev clarify this app is ready n in final error fixing stage n he is releasing public beta early august.
dude these devs worked hard for us.. they rewrite whole codes which takes almost year.. these thing is not easy as u think dude.. if u check ther official site then u get that vlc devs worked even in crismas vacations to write n compile these new codes..
even this guy sometimes not sleep in night n writing codes whole night..
now app is ready n he also stated that VLC is totally free.. its not paid.
about "Nokia by Microsoft" branding microsoft still not clarify what is future branding.. one leaked device shows nokia by microsoft branding on it.. but who knws what microsoft thinking..
I bought Lumia 520, but the battery seems to last app. 24 hrs on standby with less than 1 h of calls...!?!
Mine has to be with Bluetooth active 24/7 only due to a Parrot handsfree in my car.
But when I say 1h of calls it was only one call in the car, app. 4 min. long.
Is this normal for this phone, because this is shocking ?
Is there a reliable more powerfull battery to buy anywhere ?

Those who have a complaint against MS, why you bought windows phone?? Now there are lots of reviews on YouTube and different sites. If you bought, you should have known its disadvantages before buy.. And if you haven't windows phone, than why are you wasting your time here?? Go to lagdroid forum.. All the rubbish talks... Fans every phone has their advantage and disadvantage, you should make your priorities and choose device according to it.. You ll never regret...
shubham, 28 Jul 2014when 8.1 available in india can i get direct 8.1 after buy this phone......Not yet, you may get gdr3+lumia black out of the box, but not 8.1+cyan (I'm not sure because cyan isn't available for some of the higher end Lumias yet)

Most of the times asphalt 8 runs super smooth.. ;)

microsoftffffff, 28 Jul 2014Nokia is run by Microsoft,, who is responsible nowthat doesn't create any sense.. MS bought Nokia doesn't means they force them for anything.. cyan is firmware for lumias n it takes time to develope n fix errors by testing it on every device. also ther is carrier approvals region wise..
u telling like MS bought Nokia means they can force them to fast update.. its totaly wrong.. think by ur brain not by ur heart..
currently update is under carrier approval stage in which no one interfare not only Nokia even MS as well..
