    There is the BIG question. 620 or 520? Let's see what you get by investing 3.5k more:-

    What I wanna say is that, I observed most of the reviews are not actually "reviews". Don't know why people write everything that comes to their mind. Art of reviewing or being a critic needs some skills to look into things profoundly. I here by wanna list some lines that fellow reviewers wrote in their reviews which were actually funny in a way.

    As of April 2013 you cannot get a better phone in this Price range.

    I am in serious dilemma about the profit margin Nokia has kept to put themselves back on track in Cell Phone Business.

    Due to the totally fragmented market of cell phones (as far as India is concerned) customers like us are somehow getting benefited.

    I personally use a HTC One X and had ordered Lumia 520 for one of my family member. Have to admit, if this product would have been sold by HTC or Samsung, it would've cost atleast 2 to 3K more. Hope Lumia 520 sets the trend of providing value...

    Best Phone

    I was thinking to purchase an Android phone. However, This phone came to market and I saw its review and I changed my mind to get windows phone. This is the best windows 8 phone in the price segment of 10k. I don't see 10lakhs apps that we see for android. But, who uses 10 lakh apps. I find some useful stuff such as email-client, ms-office, skype, games like angree-bird etc. This phone is trendy as well as useful for day-to-day work. Its user-interface is really nice. you dont need to be comp...

    Dear Abdul,



    >1. No FM radio...!!! ----All Windows 8 don't have FM EVEN, 620, 720 which are more costly than 520, and I think you were already aware of this , if not so I suggest you to pls do complete R&D before buying a phone so that you can't put blame on its manufacturer.

    Windows 8 or Android?

    I did a lot of research before buying Windows 8 phone, as was using an android phone for the past 30 months (Sony Xperia Arc)

    Well one thing I haven't experienced in windows phone since I bought this phone is any kind of lag, which I was constantly facing in Android Phones.
    I know applications wise Windows is very far behind Android and IOS, but I assure all major apps that we use on a daily basis are available in Windows 8 Store. About 50% android apps are not available for indian users, so...

    Because Android is too Maintstream

    I was a bit hesitant to go for Nokia again but after buying this product I am completely satisfied. It is totally a different interface which was my primary need because I was fed up of seeing Android in everyone's hand. The Windows Phone 8 Operating System is Simple and, good looking and fast making it worth of it's price.
    Although I never use IE in laptop these days but in Lumia 520 it's performance is great. You will never need any other browser.
