Nokia Cyan update coming this summer to Windows Phone 8.1 models
The schedule you see is for the Benelux region (Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg) and the Lumia phones in that area will receive Nokia Cyan before the carrier versions of the phones in the U.S. The updates get disseminated starting in the third week of July, continuing through early August. And every Nokia Lumia device, from the mighty Nokia Lumia 1520 to the low-end Nokia Lumia 520, will receive the update.
Earlier this year, Nokia released a "Black" update timed to go out at around the same time that Microsoft released the GDR3 update to Windows Phone 8 handsets. Like the Nokia Black update, Nokia Cyan is only being pushed out to Lumia handsets.

Don't know about asphalt 7 but my friends Moto g runs asphalt 8 pretty smooth. A small tiny lag on high graphics settings. But on 520, graphics is pretty low because of limited 512mb ram.

They don't have the same price, where I live 520 is €89 and Moto G is €189. They both are very very good deals, but Moto G is just insanely packed with specs, so I'd consider it as the best budget phone. But for some people it's still too expensive, so that's where 520 comes in. Feature phone price for a suprisingly snappy and capable smartphone loaded with quality Nokia apps. And Asphalt games suck on Android, that's weird, and it's definitely Gameloft's fault.

Well, in that case the 520 is a pretty good deal in your country. When I looked on its PhoneArena specs page it said that the retail price is $184. But it's not bad for €89...

Not sure if that PhoneArena specs page is kept up to date in regard to price. Off contract Lumia 520 in the U.S. currently goes for $59 (via Microsoft's website).

No doubt, you can't get a great smartphone experience especially software for the price of a 520.

Indeed.. Best low end phone I've ever used.

Waiting for the right time to snatch me a Lumia to accompany my Android tablet.
It's nice to see all phones updated, I'm watching the Icon and the 930 closely.

I did it, n had horrible battery issue. So I reverted back to 8.0 through NSRT. Even though recent update for battery, I thought its better to wait.
But 8.1 is too good. But till July/August, thats why Im impatient.
