GUG, 04 Aug 2013My friend bought Lumia 520 and very happy with that phone. Works PERFECTLYNice to hear that. Thank you for your sharing.
Yash, 04 Aug 2013Bad phone ever.hangs a lot. mmx canvas 4 better than this. so dnt buy l720 ok.whoever says 720 hangs definitely haven't used 720 in real becoz the true experienced user can give the exact reviews of this handset.
so i had this handset since a week
^_^CYAN^_^ SPORTING beauty
the look is awesome
win 8 i.e. apolo is well optimized o.s. @ 512MB ram
not like droid's 1,2Gigs RAM
so about the softwares quantity is abit less compared to android but its increasing on daily basis.
also market place windows doesnt have much time pass advertising apps.
& the amazing thing is that battery life is superb, i charged the battery & used internet almost 4-5hrs + 1movie 3:30hrs, 2-3hrs calling + 1hr gaming temple run & moto 3D race, 3hrs music
so still my battery is 26% after last chrge @ 2days 12hrs before.
i used xolo x900 previously with stock droid 4.0 but
that batttery backup wasnt much more than 4hrs internet leads to 100 to 25% battery
also android heats up alot.
even if i cant customize the homescreen in my apolo only can change the tiles colour to selected given colour.
i am okay with it. internal mem. is 8gb given from which OS uses somepart but as u install apps the "other" part in internal goes on increasing so if u want to shrink it download a app from store i.e. "shrink volume"
we can customize only lockscreen.
internet speed is awesome on 2G.
i keep all music & videos in mem card so if pics & musics can b transfered by Bluetooth but video cant b sent easy unless u connect 720 to PC/laptop & then transfer the video folder inside the photo folder then before transfering the file by Bluetooth enable BT then pair the device then go to music/ photos app then click share then u get BT option.
uptill now no hang till now, temple run is smooth,default battery saver settngs is superb + keep the screen brightness to lowest
& the incredible thing about nokia is camera quality is magnificient, superb pics even in darkness. camera apps is also good.
IE10 is good but i like UC

n lots of wp8 r unibody.. so dnt wory..
n about 1gb ram more than 99% apps n games r compatible with 512mb ram devices..
i thnk l520 hangs lot coz it dont hav branded cpu..
1gb ram is for very high graphical games.. like amezing spiderman, fifa n others.. n they also promices that in few months they make these games also compatible with 512mb devices.
