AnonD-231319, 07 Feb 2014dear wp8 lvr,nokia normandy is first step towards android,i had ... more1- i knw normandy is 1st step from nokia.. but now microsoft bouts nokia Handset n service division so its total microsoft decision to allow to launch normandy or not..
2- if still nokia launch normendy then i think its 1st n last nokia android device..
coz nokia handset division is microsofts property.
3- ms already owns asha and lumia names from nokia and ms has license to use nokia brand on ther future phones.
4- after ms+nokia deal nokia officialy no longer to make any phone till 2016 or next 10yrs.
whole handset division goes under microsoft.
5- normendy is project made by few excited nokia employees. and if they want to launch as a trial experiment then ms definetly allows them..
in my opinion normendy is gud project but i dont think ms allow them to sell it for longer period.

6- m not told all flagship android hangs.. only few like galaxy s4.
android is already king here.. all knws.
but wp8 also growing day by day.. we cant change this fact.
wp8 already overtakes blackberry n also ios in few markets.. which is very gud sign for wp os.

7- yes wp8 has few missing features n limitations which overcomes in next few updates like next major wp8.1 blue update..

8- m not telling android is bad and wp8 gud..
both r gud..
every os has its own pros n cons.
its total users choice. we cant change these facts.

9- now Microsoft anounces ther 3rd new CEO as Satya Nadella.. he is indian.. from hydrabad.
feels proud that our indian guy is now microsofts ceo.
n if u read ther emails after anouncment of new ceo then he is much passionate about mobile world so we hav hope that ms done great job in upcoming time.

Go to settings> system settings > touch (4th last from bottom depending on the menu stack-up) > Double tap to wake up (Switch it on)

One caution - Keep your Touch Sensitivity to Normal while opting for this "Double Tap to Wake Up" as it invokes the screen even with a small feather touch

  • TejasN

Not really a complaint - however help me out here fellow brethrens. The loudspeaker sound in my NL520 even at volume 01/30 (ring+vibrate) is too loud. It does not bother me much but still think the loudness is high for the volume level 01. Suggest if this is the same case with others using L520


I would like to say this phone THE NOKIA LUMIA 520.
there r touch is i can say perfect, high sensitivity of touch, motion of glass is really very very good. Voice call clarity and sound of playing songs good, there r voice clarity is perfect to hear in noise pollution, u can hear clearly voice in traffic, the sound is loudly but there r not equalizer sou cant set any other effect in sound, display is sharp and clear, scratch resistance glass, high quality video u can play and u feel really best display at time of video play, most off all apps r support which made for windows, there r less apps available for windows phone then android, android has lot of apps ao u can enjoy more fun and features in android, here just 2 thinks r minus for 520. 1 no more apps. 2 battery backup is low . Otherwise phone perfect to use as bussiness man or also for fun. Camera quality is really i can say perfect without flash, at night time camera result is down, in day time if u use camera properly then u got hd quality result in photo and video.
my this review i post after buy and use on my hand, value for money handset. I repeat who one want more fun and features then go for any best android mobile. Nokia quality and result r always perfect , hardware also best quality, windows os need to be better...
