Budget phone doesn't mean a poor performance or poor OS design. and is it really so Budget phone?, 10k ?? -> Poor performance? WP gives tens of times better performance than Android. Poor Design? You are serious?
If you compare with Android in this range, then you can realize how low this phone is in terms of specs. -> Really? Tell me which phone has better specs than this? Tell me a good brand, not some cheap Chinese or local mobiles. Lets see, Lumia 520 has 1ghz dual core processor, HTC Desire C has pathetic 600mhz single core processor, Xperia E and Galaxy fame both have single core processor and 520 has s4 krait. Others have poor cortex processors. 520 has 4" ips lcd display. Rest have poor tft screens. Many are not even WVGA. Screen size is around 3.5" in most. 520 has 8gb inbuilt, 64gb expandable. Most androids have atmost 4gb expandable to 32gb. Camera is 5mp, Xperia E has 3.2mp. Others are 5mp. Lumia 520 can play 1080p videos, others can't even play 720p properly. GPU is also good. So how are specs inferior? Clearly you are lying.
Moreover just on the name of latest windows, WP8, you cant have such bad design or remove the comfortness from user. Finally you buy phone for helping you, and not inviting problems. -> Tell me what are the problems? And how comfort is not there?
For windows you need to have PC for making play lists, browsing SDCard content. -> Clearly shows you have no knowledge. You can create playlists on phone. And sdcard content can be viewed on respective hubs, documents can be viewed usin third party pdf reader.
WP8 is simply very very complex to use and not at all user friendly as compared to IOS/Android.
-> Complete LIE. WP is most user friendly unlike android where you have to swipe with two/three fingers.

AnonD-146799, 21 May 20131. Fastest OS??? Really. What does make it fastest.
Openings settings -> takes ~3 second... morei think your phone have got some problem..

its your problem to browse videos....but it does not lag while searching isn't it..

dnt cmpare it wt droid.. except google play store droid is only a buggy nd hangy os in budget phns.. so dnt tell ths thng to us..
nd for ios i only say tht when apple launch any iphn in under 20k then compare it wt apple.. dnt make us fool ..
Wp8 restrict some thngs coz of privacy, security nd copyright reasones.. which makes wp8 totly secure os than ios..
cnt say anythng about droid coz in security manner it got 0 rank.. even I hv some basic hacking knwlege i also hack ur droid device very easily..
MS try to making new user interface.. in region of security..
wp8 is very easy to use.. only u need a basic knwlge hw to use it.. ppl just try to use it like droid bt its nt droid.. its wp8 n u need to knw hw to use it.. like evry new thng or device launch in market.. just read user manual nd try to operate it..
i knw wp8 has some lags not hangs like droid.. lags r due to os is in beta testing condtion.. lots of coding ther to remove lags.. nd MS fully try to remove these lags..
nd sd card is acess by its perticular apps or hubs.. no need of file manager..
nd wp8 dsnt allow you to downld any video coz of copyright issue.. means every content downld by us in our daily life is pirated files like music nd videos..
it allows only to downld otherised sites original contents.. like youtube, nokia music+, xbox music and live..

I am not check with this type of features like equalizer, no options for download to SD card. I am not expect nokia will not provide this type of features ..
Anonymous, 21 May 2013you never expect these issues once you go with branded phone like Nokia and with Microsoft OS.... moreYeah still a good deal bangs head in 10k..bcoz my bro banging his head in 20k after buying Sammy grand duos. Still by far best choice in 10k with so much flaws as u said. Now u can imagine what kind of shits other companies selling you.

Hey. Em luking to buy L520. What i wana ask is if some app is paid and is has try opt. What does it mean? Can u use dat app for few days trial version and den it will stop working? Or u will have free version which has less features frm paid version bt will work. And it is usually enuf for many ppl

The issues I mentioned are not only on 520 and occurs across almost every windows phone. These are the design flaws and hardly hardware specific.
So ya, anyone wil bang his/her head if you get cheated by such big brands.
and if someone just needs call +SMS, why to go for 10k.
Hope i clear this, nothing personal, its about design which frustrates the user and its not hardware specific.
RVR, 21 May 2013Dudes. You are telling same answer to me "because of its budget phone". Than why put... moreI hv not said that its budget phone or wonderful phone. I just said tht problem in you that u had not checked before what u want and what this mobile do best. Bcoz at the same time this phone is superbly awsome for me bcz my primary requirements r differ frm u and this phone does that very efficiently. Better check before buying that banging ur head after buying.
AnonD-146799, 21 May 2013IF you are not into gaming, Lumia 520 is obviously a MUCH BETTER choice. Whatsapp is available... moreThanks a lot.... I am fed up of canvas 2...coz its laggy.... I prefer costly android phones like Nexus 4 or note 2... But then, way too costly and any android in10-15k range is lagdroid... I want to try windows os as i own a Ipad mini... So gaming and music is covered.... I only need for texting and browsing... #SWITCH TO LUMIA :)
