I like how the best seller in a line that is known for cameras, is a phone with 5mp and no flash.

Lower-end handsets will always sell in greater amounts than their flagship devices. It's common sense.

Nah, I rather buy budget wp8 than budget laggy android, if you want to buy an Android you must buy 4 cores and 1gb of ram and most of this specs can be seen in Mid-End devices. I have an Nexus 4 it doesnt lag because of optimization and my brother have Sammy Galaxy S3 Mini and it lags a lot totally lag unlike my friend that have L520 it doesnt lag even playing like Temple Run 2.

buuut wp doesn't have temple run 2. only temple run 1. and the 520 does lag occasionally, and the loading and resuming screens tend to get annoying.

Budget WP8 smartphones (like the 520) don't lag any thing remotely like Android devices in the same price range, and they are also free of Viri. Amen.

Pricing is the key to the success of many companys... except for Apple it seems, it will sell you a 2010 phone for a 2020 phone's price.

You know what? It sucks that Nokia are finding it hard to make it into high end, but the Lumia 520 is one great low end smartphone, very fast, smooth and functional. I'd actually recommend it over many similarly priced Androids.

Nice to know that Nokia had something sizzling hot to cover the lower market end. Good thing it will add some goodie to their revenue which is way better than a bleeding revenue.
