Flashback: Nokia Lumia 520 was smoother than any Android twice its price

07 October 2019
That's largely because the price was as low as we've seen on smartphones - it started at $100 and regularly went for around $50.

So all phone manufacturers had a Windows Phone WP 7 single core with no memory expansion ( What brand still had no memory expansion?)

Microsoft took an age and a day to release the major update Windows Phone 8 multi core with memory expansion

Windows Phone 10 was the death of Microsoft cell phone venture.

WP 10 beta testing on Windows Phone 8 devices crashed every model, indicating a major fla

Instead of pulling the plug Microsoft released it to run on the flagship Lumia 950 & 950 Xl

(Windows phone 8 viable and working, Microsoft updated WP8 multiple times, that should have been the OS on the 950 & 950 XL and updating it that way.

Windows Phone 10 essentially is imo malware, Microsoft stopped selling all WP10 devices as new sales added to the complaint base.

Windows Phone 10 if it could have been fixed it would have, two years of trying and even having the added incentive of Hewlett Packard releasing a flagship phone was not enough

If Windows Phone ever came back Windows Phone 8 OS would be at its core, we have the ridiculous situation that you can't stream music to a Windows phone from OneDrive

And. and the Surface Phone Dual Screen on Android

Lumia 650 is it's modern day bargain now

Being a windows phone fan those days this was the phone I recommend to my non techy friends and I made 9 of them buy this one 520 and some other mid range phone if my memory is right 720. I was so sure about windows phone becoming the second biggest platform after Android and a true force in the smartphone market. But alas it never happened.

  • Abhi

Yes i agree also and my thoughts are same the NOKIA WOULD remember its own glory
