Rofl....... Lumia 520 beats nexus 4 and s3 in sunshine and browser mark...... What a shame.... Imagine what wp8 will do with quad core... It will be total annihilation of android as far as benchmarks go.

In order to do that, it will need for sure to have at least 1GB of RAM available(for the RT apps). I don't trust MS promises, see what happened with Skype, and how soon (and well) they provided the WP7.8 update.

Here is what GSMArena said
"In this price range, you can't get a perfectly smooth Android smartphone, so the light-on-the-hardware Windows Phone 8 is really made to count."
When will the official GSMarena battery test be uploaded for the lumia 520? I really want to know its battery performance.

Does anyone know if a phone with 512mb RAM (lumia 520,620,720)can be upgraded to future Windows Mobile OS? To me, its the only thing keeping me away from buying this phone. I dont want a phone with outdated OS within just 6 months of buying it.
Lumpia, 17 Apr 2013Are you kidding me ? These phones are either CDMA or single core or above $250. htc rhyme is gsm.
