I expected more from this handset and the Nokia brand in general but will not recommend it.
A major gripe is video handling. You can not save video content that has been forwarded to you, you need to connect the phone to a PC to copy video content on to the phone. Removing video files requires PC connection as well. Content created via the video camera can be managed locally. It all smells like some DRM trick gone wrong.
The camera is so so with no digital zoom (as far as I can tell).
The keyboard is just BAD - the old Samsung Star is better than this and the Star was pretty bad for its day.
No message notifier customisation either. You *can* change ringtones but this is a chore as well.
The phone performs well but the software needs *serious* attention. Gaming is pretty good for a phone in this price range and the Xbox tie in is a plus.
if nokia are reading this let me tell u this, we love nokia, we love windows phone display it is really good, but where the hell are the applications?? how is it so difficult to download videos and other things,,?? If this continues u will never compete with android phones.. people love android because there is millions of apps available, most of them free... stop acting like apple and be nokia we used to know

San VK, 08 Sep 2013I'm able to send/receive 3GP videos from Bluetooth, i heard its not possiblePlz tell me how can I transfer videos through Bluetooth from my Lumia 520 to another "????
Phone is realy good in 9k price range.Nokia's build quality also awesome. But applications are very very limited.I could not get even a good file browser, which is most essential for any smart phone. This kind of essential software should have been installed by default. No good video player which can play all common video formats. Phone will be good for entry level smart phone users. With out good softwares compiting with other OS will be difficult for MS/Nokia.
San VK, 08 Sep 2013In all that Screen Rotation Lock is very important.For some people maybe yes, for me file manager that can manage easy to read, move, removed, copy paste like in Android is more important than others.
