Don't buy this phone its crappy period... Especially when you come from Android. It’s annoying to press 100 buttons to activate bluetooth for example and it is so freeken slow to and fro other devices for a v4.0 bluetooth app??? The Main screen is to only beautiful feature with Windows 8.1. Other menu's are the crappiest layout ever. I like nice features and this is by far the worse I have seen of all the phones I had... nokia never again. My old Nokia from the 2000 + beats this one...
most low rated phone in windows series . no need of this phone. but I think . its better fore a basic smart phone use in this cheap rate.
small battery for today standard...look like microsoft don't want this phone last "longer"
Huge step back from 520. Thicker, no autofocus, a 4GB internal storage (520 had 8 GB).

There is... moreBro all windows phone 8.1 handsets will get an update to the next big software update that is what I meant by windows phone 8.2/windows phone 9.I know the next big update isn't announced but it is announced the that the windows 8.1 handsets will get it.Windows 8 handsets will get gdr updates but not the next big software update(That too is announced).Why do you think is Microsoft promoting phones with windows phone 8.1 out of the box if there is no difference?I am using a lumia 620 for a year now,and my friend recently bought a 630.There is a substantial difference in the phone operating speeds due to the quad core processor though the ram is 512mb for both.Also the live folder option is good and convenient(I'm using developer preview).Also the 530 camera is not better than the 520.520 has auto focus and 530 is fixed focus.520 records 720p videos whereas 530 only 480p.

Rahul, 18 Aug 2014lumia 520/525 will not get the next update to windows phone 8.2/windows phone 9 but lumia 530 will.Completely incorrrect answer bro. All windows phone 8 handsets will get windows 8.1 . There is no windows 8.2 or windows 9 announced. Windows 8. 1 update 1 has been announced that will bring folder creation on start screen to all phones running win phone 8.1. Now to answer whats the diff between 520 and 530. Well 530 has quad core processor, 520 has dual core, 530 has 4 gb space, 520 has 8 gb space, but 530 can be expanded to 128 gb via memory card while 520 to 32 gb. RAM in both is 512 mb. Display is same in both. Thats basically it. 530 and 520 both have 5 MP camera but 530 has a better 5 mp camera.
