    Surely it’s about quality rather than quantity? WP is the fastest growing app store around, so anything you feel is missing should hopefully be on the horizon

  • akash

    in nokia 520 the games&apps&application is limited compare to android or ihone.

  • sree

    So ur saying d 620?

  • Mikey_Bee

    Screen on 520 is bigger but purely from a personal preference, we like the 620 more.

    What do others think?

  • sree

    Have a budget for both the 520 and 620,I need basic apps n camera isn’t a priority.I need a good screen size,a day long battery life,good built,doesn’t look cheap and most importantly I need it for atleast 2 years so it shouldn’t be delicate.Based on the above details pls give ur preference,Thank u

    Day to day 512MB works well, we’re not aware of too many apps that don’t run on this level of device, it’s mostly games.

  • sree

    off topic but does the 512 ram restrict the day to day usage of apps? m no gamer so temple run etc dont matter to me,what I mean is that whether using a good chunk of apps will be affected by the limited 512 ram? pls dont consider games in ur reply,dont need it

    Nokia Mix radio is free for life, no ads, no hassle, just tap into it on your phone and you’re away! Enjoy the music :)

  • sree

    is it true that the nokia music radio app is free only for one year

  • Mikey_Bee

    The developers have created this to run on 1GB of RAM. We’re hoping to see them work on a 512MB version so that it will run on the NL520

  • Vignesh Stress

    does lumia 520 hav temple run..

  • Mikey_Bee

    Plenty of games on Windows Phone Store for free :)

  • Mikey_Bee

    If you want to play high-end games like the four just announced you will need 1GB of RAM. The same was true of Asphalt 7 but the developer worked on the code and it now works on 512MB – so hopefully these games will get the same magic!

    All Nokia Lumia devices will continue to get updates. Only last week Nokia announced that the Nokia Lumia amber update would come to all devices this summer :)

  • Nagaraj Sk
