Comment: give the solution on my lumia 520 when call come my Voice Can's listen by another person from earphones.
Good: Price, speed, windows 8
Bad: Battery life, camera lacks flash
Comment: I bought this while my Samsung Galaxy S3 is away being repaired. Thought it would be quite basic, but I have to say, I am thoroughly impressed with it. The speed a logging into apps, downloading and installing them, playing videos is up there with the S3. Windows 8 is surprisingly very good. It lacks the customisation of Android, but I love the simplicity of it. Everything just seems to work, and works with a common slickness to it that Android lacks.
Downsides? Well, battery life isn't great (I use phone for personal and business stuff). Windows 8 doesn't have the apps of iOS or android. It will get there, but apps like Facebook seriously need updating.
Otherwise, highly recommended phone, especialy for the price
Good: wide screen and a good processor specially with its low price
Bad: no front camera and i can't download apps from unknown sources

Comment: I have purchased one 520 , two weeks back. Suddenly its touch pad developed a line split and no service availability. Nokia care dosen't have the spare to replace the touch pad !!!!.Amazing backup support.! This equipment is covered under Nokia show room sold insurance for All India support. Insurance guy (Universal insurance brokers )is asking me to handover the unit to his courier fellow.! Not to the Nokia care. I guess .I am in a trap now between Nokia and insurance fellow. My question here is "who is owning the product? Is it Nokia or Insurance co. who will provide the warranty service ) losing the money,time and peace of mind. To have my phone calls in time ,I have to buy another phone now(Samsung). If any body knows the CEO - Nokia India ,I would like to gift this 520 to him/her. Without any proper service availability Nokia should not damage the name like this.- George Puthu- 9495788920.
Good: price and features
Comment: awesome phone!!!
Good: Apps are good ,Built quality is good as always from nokia .Almost Ideal Mobile for 10 k.
Bad: I miss flash light.
Comment: I recently bought Lumia 520 and It hasn't let me down .Though you can only download Apps from Windows store and You will need Internet Activated to Install Apps.YOU CANT INSTALL APPS ON YOUR SD CARD. I wish it had led flash light though but When I compare its camera with other samsung mobiles of 10 K it was much better.Some Games Need Internet Activated to Play.It has decent clarity and a good display (Best for 10 K) .In short Its much better than any other mobile at 10 K considering that Windows phone 8 is still new.
