I have been using 520 for almost 1 month now, very satisfied with the performance. Here is what I feel
1) Really fast despite of 512mb RAM, doesn't lag at all
2) I found all my required apps which I had in my android
3) Screen quality is good for the price, but outdoor visibility is not par
4) Whatsapp works great after the recent update
5) Nokia Music is awesome, so far downloaded 100+ songs for free
6) Camera quality is good in outdoors, for indoor requires good lighting and lot of cool lenses available.
7) I made a study on number of apps available in the Market, it is around 99K apps where as android had only 16K apps in its first year. This proves Windows app store is growing in a strong rate.
8) Facebook app is working fast and flawless.
9) plays videos without conversion (MPEG4)
10)Crashed only once while gaming
11) Navigation works great, offline map is really handy.
1) Couldn't play mkv videos
2) No call recorder, Windows 8 doesn't allow 3rd party app to use mic while in call
3) No equalizer and surround enhancement
4) No FM radio till Amber update
5) Missing the notification center

[deleted post]Dude rebranding is not a bad thing as you think... Its a great way of marketing... For example do you know about India's most selling Mini SUV Renault Duster?
its actually a rebranded vehicle from Romanian automaker Dacia... Not from the reputed French Renault but it leads in its segment... That's how rebranding works in a highly price sensitive market like India..

They are rebranding only quality products. That's why they are top in market. And they are developing some cool applications also, like Aisha a Siri alternative for their phones.

Many developers seem prefer to Android. In Windows Phone no Gamevil developer, no Wild Blood game, no Ravensword: Shadowland, Aralon: Sword and Shadow HD, Avatar HD, no Backstab game, etc. From Gameloft developer I just try Ice Age Village. Other games I use emulator SNES8x and vNES Light.
