· Build quality is awesome with a mat finish on its back which gives a firm grip.
· Comparatively less apps that android. But almost all required apps are present.
· No High end gaming as of now due to the 512 ram limitation.
For the price, this phone is too good to resist. It has got everything to win your heart. The colours on the screen appears very sharp and real. I really cant think of any other phone which can give you these features even above 15k.
For those who are still thinking about the apps, one quick info - only Microsoft and Apple checks every apps before its put In the marketplace. Android has lots of apps, but most of them are buggy, they either drain out your battery or consume all the resources which results in poor performance. Every app in windows store is verified for its quality and you can be sure, it wont slow down your phone. In android if you install a few apps, the phone will start slowing down. But I tried around 30 apps installed in windows. No slowing down was noticed. I believe we should be looking at the quality of apps than the quantity.
Go ahead, buy this phone, you wont regret :)
The transition from a simplest basic mobile to the Smartphone could never be more easier, thanks to Nokia Lumia 520 and Windows 8.
I do not know much technical bits to appraise this mobile, but i can state many of its advantages from a layman's angle.
1. Excellent build quality- I dropped it on a cement road from my bicycle to find it in three pieces. But nothing was damaged.
2. For it's primary usage as a phone- Excellent voice quality, speaker phone is at its best. Signal reception is also very good. SMS Interface is very different than regular basic phones and i found it to be quite innovative.
3. Screen size of 4' is quite appropriate. It fits in your palm well and goes in the packet very nicely.
4. Display quality is excellent. It may not have the best viewing angle though, but for a single viewer, you get the best.
5. Windows 8 feels amazing. Very user friendly, desktop kind of interface and positioning of apps could not be more simple.
6. It will not be wise to ignore Windows phones thinking that it does not have enough apps. You would find apps for almost all of your needs.
7. The most beautiful feature i found is the Kid's Corner. Here, you can create different profile for your kid. And you will be at peace, while your child is trying her hands at your mobile. With this profile, your child can not make any outgoing calls or can not mend with your important files in the phone.Read more ›
People said that there are few apps for Windows, I found that there are lot of options for normal users. May be for app freaks, they may be less!
For someone who is addicted to social media apps like facebook, this is the best phone. Facebook is deeply integrated in the OS.
Touch is near perfect. Performance is superb which I judged by playing Asphalt 5 game on the device, it runs as charm with full details on! I liked the "Kid's Corner" feature, very useful when you have kids around.
Build quality is very good, form factor and screen size are optimum. Feels good to hold in hands. Offline maps feature is decent however you may not find it as informative as google maps.
Some features may be lacking (like easy interface for enabling, data networks, WiFi, Bluetooth and Airplane mode), but then there is widget for that. It would be better if this widget comes pre-installed in the OS.
Sound is quite good. Creating and managing playlists is a pain. I am unable to figure out a clean way of doing it yet. But once done that should not bother any user regularly.
Call quality, voice clarity etc are very good.
Overall a very good phone in this price range. Of course quite a good bargain when bought from Amazon as compared to other online stores as well as retailers.
