i have been using lumia 520 for the past 9 months.. i ham satisfied with the performance and the durability. My only concern is about the battery life. Maximum battery life is one day.
I have been using this phone now form past 2 months .
Would like to share my exp with you all. i am not much into gaming.
PROS: looks, processor speed is fine.
CONS: Phone hangs every now and then and has to be locked and unlocked to make it run
2. Nokia has forgotten the most important use of the phone ie. the signal strength ... which is definitely not up to the mark. I talked to the sevice center guy and he told me the same problem is with all the sets he can not do anything with it.
3. wireless signal reception is poor. tried out making calls on viber ,skype, wechat. magic jack all works fine on my HTC but on lumia 520 wireless connection is always in average state and therefore there is always some noise in the call and voice fluctuation and connection loss.
4. Battery is already gone ... i am going to get it replaced under warranty.
5. Various applications are not there in windows eg . there is no individual application lock software available in the store, whatsapp does not have many features which are ther in android. a basic functionality of making a song to ringtone will need a laptop connection or an additional software, windows should be ashamed about this.
Overall its a phone which lacks basics.
what is the purpose of a phone full of feature if i cant make a call ..
Big disappointment for me .... I will never recommend anyone to buy this product .

It's the best I ever have, no lags, everything works fine. And I can use Sony Media Go to transfer music, video, etc. But 520 cannot read .m3u8 extension playlist file that I create on pc (that I usually used it on Xperia Device). But it doesn't matter, I can still create playlist manually on Lumia music application. And it's getting better when it's updated to wp 8.1 preview developer. I'm waiting for the official. ;-)
