joel, 17 Jan 2014Dear all i am going to buy new nokia lumia 520 is it good ? Yes it is good...rumors are that soon we will get file manager and notification center..strong wish that notification center should be like one in blackberry z10...its notification system is outstanding ...now every body has eye on 8.1 only because it may change the face of this phone and think it will add more popularity and I m sure it will boost market of this phone once again
john, 16 Jan 2014What I mean to say is 8.1 must be last and final update for L520 man.. and after that focus on... moreHey man..it is true that windows phone life cycle is extended to 2016...but yes I think 8.1is last big update and after that some small bugs update will be issued but think L520 will not get wp9...only because of low Ram.all this are just assumption man other wise god andMS knows what MS will do...and regarding Opera than they are saying that they are working...ya I remember vice city ...dont know where it goes after advertising of "coming soon".. Chill man 8.1 will not disappoint you for sure....
Some weakness I found is absense of file manager ,I dont have pc,laptop so I cant move my downloaded files from ucbrowser to memory card,notification system is not good...i had purchased this phone only seeing the name"windows phone".i thought this phone is more or less same as to the pc windows version..but I was totally wrong...this phone acts like little baby who cannot able to walk itself ,it needs a help of papa(pc/laptop)for walk...i m little dissappointed ..now someone told me that 8.1 is coming..so waiting for that and if this update is not useful mean notification,filemanager not working as expected than sure will sell this phone and buy Symbian phone as it is ok for me
AnonD-100814, 16 Jan 20141- i reported whatsapp and they replied me that they are working on big update for wp8 whaatsa... moreWhat I mean to say is 8.1 must be last and final update for L520 man.. and after that focus on wp9.and dude fb is not so good in wp as it is not to the point...and I also contact whatapp for the same..but strange that they always send FAQ reports when ever we report problem...try to accept weakness man...and I dont favour wp,java,Symbian,android or whatever...im saying what is inner thing...yes wp8 life cycle extended to 2016 but 8.1will be,may be,full and final update for wp8 users and regarding Opera than man Opera is not new developers to writing any language..but the main problem is regarding this platform strict restriction....if in8.1 all this restriction remains than it willbe huge huge disappointment
AnonD-100814, 16 Jan 20141- i reported whatsapp and they replied me that they are working on big update for wp8 whaatsa... moreWho told u that wp8 lifecycle ends in 2016?dont mislead man...because MS is now planning for wp9...and also they confirmed it..and what do you mean Opera is working on wp8? I had inquired that also...and man what about vicecity game ?they also promised to coming soon coming soon butthe result ...i think u know(may be)...kids corner cannot do cut,copy,paste,hide files orrename...i know u dont realize the value of this feature because I think their is no use of all this features for u but it is vry vry essential man
AnonD-224589, 16 Jan 2014Every time it's hanged when i switch on WIFI. Can anyone suggest me how can i solve this problem?put water
john, 16 Jan 2014Yes u r right..their is not much option in this phone...it is simple phone...some people sayin... moreRelax dude file manager is definitely coming with wp8.1 blue and as you know all wp8 devices are upgradable to wp8.1blue but not sure about 8.2(threshold) i think 512MB ram devices will get last update of 8.1
mukesh, 16 Jan 2014I think this phone is little risky for businessman...as every thing is open in this phone...ho... more1- i reported whatsapp and they replied me that they are working on big update for wp8 whaatsapp..
2- Set password for ur device.. Use kids corner to keep safe ur content.
3- Who told you that Opera developers wont make wp8 app because of no access for 3rd party developers??
main reason is WP8 apps written on new C# language. Opera team was demanding MS to provide C & C++ development support but MS not allows it.. This is reason Opera team was not making operamini for wp8.
but good news is Opera developers told that they are working on wp8 app.. so wait until they write ther APIs foe C# language.
4- Dude FB app is already a official app.. MS devs n FB devs both are working on it..
also in wp8.1 blue MS totaly integrate FB In OS.
5- Who told u wp8 lifecycle ends on july 2o14.. microsoft already extends wp8 lifecycle till july 2016.. so dont worry u get all updates.
Even MS confirms that all wp8 devices get upcoming Huge wp8.1 blue update. so dont meslead ppls
AnonD-100814, 16 Jan 2014Yes dude File manager is very demanding feature on wp8.. i know file manager is very usefull b... moreYes dude but what about cut,copy,paste,hide ,rename features?it is very very essential from businessman point of view...although im not using any android devices but Im little tecaddict person and im seeing now a days many cellcompany coming with 1.2ghz pricessore and 1gb of ram so their is no prob of hanging any more in android...ya you are rightthat android hangs but it is little past now because of low amount of ram and processore but now we get high processor with good ram in almost this price...
john, 16 Jan 2014Yes u r right..their is not much option in this phone...it is simple phone...some people sayin... moreYes dude File manager is very demanding feature on wp8.. i know file manager is very usefull but try to understand File manager is one of the unsecured thing.
File manager is provided Root path of ur all device content so any hacker easily hacks ur device.
In now days wp8 is worlds #1 secure OS. Even APPLE IOS also dont have File manager definetly because of above reason.
2- Definatly dude..
android and IOS is matured OS because thy already passes huge developing period.
WP8 is almost 1 yr old.
users are diverting towards wp8 because of it is very stable and almost no hang occurs..
Apple devices are non affordable and low end android devices are junk always hangs.
Hope u understand.

Every time it's hanged when i switch on WIFI. Can anyone suggest me how can i solve this problem?
mani, 16 Jan 2014not that much optionsYes u r right..their is not much option in this phone...it is simple phone...some people sayings that file manager is not useful or not needed..but it is not true...with the help of filemanager atleast we can arrange our stuffs systematically folder wise so it will be easy to find our stuffs...but a well featured filemanager like ESfile manager of google play store is mostly needed for this phone..hope MS provide this type of FILEMANAGER to windows user...im not finding any single unique useful thing that this phone do where other platform cant,but I find a number of things that others platform phone can do and this phone cannot and that too at a lower price than thisphone...when I mean to other platform it doesnot mean only android but it includes Symbian,android etc
I think this phone is little risky for businessman...as every thing is open in this phone...how ever some photo lock app is their so one can hide photos..but other things like videos cannot be hide,some data files like pdf files also remains open,useful apps remains open (WhatsApp) so any body can access your private data...and for the persons who have busy tight working schedule dont have much time to connect to pc and transferr all stuffs from one folder to another...and also at every place carry laptop with us is also not possible...so this phone is best who have enough time ...yes but if MS removes those access restrictions to third party app than this phone will be nice...if this platform is really very goodthan y cant famous dev like operamini and all that not launching their app for windows phone?and also no official app for Fb,although Ms had provided,but withought official app it will be risky...and one thing that recently I read that now the wp8 is life cycle cames to end on july2014 so if any body want to purchase this platform phone right now than it will be not useful for those people as soon MS discontinue to provide os update to WP8,and will focus on wp9..
