Coz now a day's desktop market is shrinking day by day... And in developing countries like India, South Africa etc are more towards Linux... But to use a windows phone you must need a windows pc. In this way Microsoft can prevent their market share share to some extent... But that's a bad play... Ubuntu mobile OS and Firefox OS is also into market. In Desktop market chrome OS and Firefox OS... Competition will be too tough...

popoHDS, 09 Jul 2013I am gonna buy a mobile, price range Rs. 9500. Is lumia 520 the right choice? Please reply soonTo be frank don't buy this phone if your age is below 30 or you are young in mind. This phone is only for uncles and aunty's... Its hardware made for youth but OS make it a phone for elder people... No exciting games and applications, and social networking apps sucks to core... Buggy apps... Total waste of money, I am regretting now... Here i see many people supporting Microsoft. They only argues with us without any real solution and make us fools with their so called factors... And they forgets the factor, customer is the King... No matter Wp8 new or old it should satisfy customer needs... Else don't release the underdeveloped OS and applications to fool customers. Think thrice before buying any windows phone...

neeraj.rathore, 06 Jul 2013User have no complete control over his phone -> There is no phone that gives complete contr... moreIts ok u r a hardcore fan of Microsoft but don't give such silly excuses.... Its ok if windows provides applications for every respective file type, then there is no need of file manager. But windows only provide a basic video player , picture viewer, a basic music player and office suite. How much file types it can handle? Nearly 15 ?? And other file types files are invisible in memory needs a pc to view. To do basic file operations like copy,delete and moving files you need a pc... A smartphone is to minimalize the use of pc. But this phone needs a pc for everything.
to move a video from picture hub in a android or simbian
step 1 select file
step 2 : select destination
in this phone
step 1: turn on your pc
wait for boot up 1 min+
step2 : connect to usb
step 3 : find file cut
step4: paste in destination
step 5: safe remove hardware
step 6: disconnect usb
step 7: turn off pc
for a simple file operation wastes your precious time. Its pathetic... Still you blindly supporting them at least tell them to add a hub named Other files... Please

sp_L520, 08 Jul 2013can it play videos transfered frm pc? And does it support utorrent?Yep it support 1080p..but does not flv,dat format
please read this out before buying this mobile or any windows 8 mobile!!!!
i am not sure why nokia is going with windows OS, which is very immature compared to android. this is why
**7/9/13 one more worst usablility scenario, its like worst experience for me using windows 8...i have added a lot of songs on to the sd card, and most of the songs went in to one album, and if we want to go to last song in that ..thats it ur gone, u have to keep on scrolling to the end, there is no fast scrolling as in android. and then the worst part is there is no folder view of all the music folders on the sd card, only things available are songs/album/ etc...cause folder view is most useful in the case of songs not being organised properly by album view of songs...
*** even when in turn on wifi/3g some times integrated facebook app in messaging wil say "cant connect now" i have tried multiple times turned off/on wifi/wg, even mobile. then also it is not coming online, and the worst part is it gives notifications some times/ and some times does not give..,..microsoft just threw some not well wriiten/not wel featured OS on to us, and we are buying ignorantly, as we will not know the real things until we use it.
***** there is no USB tethering, only option is WIFI tethering which takes a lot of battery, this is just a basic feature, which is not there in this********
**** WORST thing is that there is no common place for all notifications! say some one pinged u, it is notified on the top for few seconds, and thats it gone, we cant see that notification again! only option is we have to put a tile and check it if notification came from that app or not..
*** jus now found that there is no back ground downoading!! if download starts and if we move to another app, thats it download stops!! we have to again go to the starting place and resume download!!!
*** there is no standard browsers like firefox/chrome/opera/dolphin/ or any good browser other than IE browser,which is very bad. microsoft is so lazy that there is no option to let the browser remember username/passwords even in their stock browser!! means every time u want to login to some website, we have to type username/password everytime. and also it limits to just 6 tabs, and the worst part is, when ever u shift to another tab, the page gets reloaded again. i have never imagined that a browser can be made like this!!
1. u have to pay ~ 50 rs for even basic games like angry birds space, starwars, they give a "try" option, which will mostly have limited functionality because when i tried real football, it was working only for one week, before it asked to "buy"
2. there is a official youtube app created by microsoft which wont work properly, it is not a app, it just open a new IE tab and tried to play video in IE(mobile mode) it just shows up blank!! then some times when it comes, it says this file format is not supported on this mobile(i tried play many videos), and then i tried in IE(desktop mode) it started playing, and then crashed and mobile rebooted. can u ever imagine this kind of non sense in android mobile just for playing youtube videos?
3. in the music player, there is no option to just tap and move to particular part of song! which i thought very basic thing a music player should have. we have to long press fast forward icon to move quickly to some part of song!
4. no keyboard swype feature!!
5. worst part is we have to connect to computer and copy a song to ringtones folder, to set it as ringtone, i mean we cant directly set it!! basic stuff!! all this is no file manager(not even any app too) in windows 8.
6. when we copy photos to sd card, they have not got detected until i restarted the mobile.
7. many games which are free/less costly are all 2/3 times costlier in windows!!
8. google maps is much better in terms of details it shows! only thing is we can download maps offline, and can do offline navigation, if the palce ur searching is in the local database.
9. there are no good music players like vlc/real/mx as in android,
10. basic app like facebook app is crashing like anything
11. there is no gtalk app, so i tried nimbuzz, everything will be fine until we use it, but if we go to home screen/shift to another app, we wont get any notification that some one pinged u, we have to again open nimbuzz to see if some one pinged u. and there are no better apps for chatting other than nimbuzz.
12. all these points will be the same on any windows phone, because it is the problem with windows phone, not with nokia, and i will update with more issue when i find them.
these are some good points,
1. good battery life.
2. quick chargin.
3. OS is fast, no lagging till now
4. touch screen is grt.
5. offline navigation
sound quality in external speaker is good
sound quality in earphones is just about average(not bad with reasonable bass with apple earphones which are one of the best. when i tried with sony ear buds (which came with xperia ion and sounded grt with it), bass is tooo low for us to njoy the song).
