Nokia is trolling us. ICS and 512MB of RAM in 2014? It will be a laggy, FC mess like the Lumia 520.

4.1 is Jellybean.

You're right, my bad. I have a case of early morning dumbassery. Still, 4.1, when KK is made to run better for low-end devices, doesn't seem like a legit attempt, it seems like a joke.

Lumia 520's performance rivals that of flagship Androids and the iPhone. I don't you have used a Lumia 520 before.

I owned one, and it was what you would expect from a $99 phone. It's a smartphone, but just barely. Video + texting or playing music while reading and responding to texts would wipe out the RAM and force you to close something. My 3GS on iOS 7 performed better, as did my Nexus S. I think you WP fanboys have bought into this myth that the fake "smoothness" coded into WP transitions equals power or speed, and my advice to you is to actually try something with real horsepower, like a 5S, a Note 3, or an LG G2. The 1520 has the same SoC as the G2 or the N3, but it doesn't make use of it like the Android flagships. The 5S is also in another league, and it has the best ecosystem by a wide margin.

OMG, finally someone who's saying things as they are. Yes, WP may be smoother, but the problems arise when you run out of memory, and when you do, it doesn't matter if your OS is WP or Android. What's more, Samsung played a great part in the common belief that Android is laggy, since Samsung sells the vast majority of Android phones and the Samsung interface *is* slow. But grab a Nexus, an HTC One, a Sony Z1... you'll see that a well designed and implemented interface performs well even in Android.

What I meant by commenting that the Lumia 520 is as smooth as flagship Androids is that it is smooth, but sometimes there is a little lag and delay, just like high end Androids. :) And BTW, WP is smoking fast on a Lumia 920 or 925 with 1 GB of RAM, something that cannot be said for Androids with that much amount of RAM.

The Moto G is fast and smooth, but when compared to a WP with similar specs, it doesn't stand a chance.

Judging by this ignorant comment of yours, I can assume that you never had your hands on one. But yeah, keep telling yourself that, buddy. If it makes you feel better.

The Moto G has just been launched a couple days back in India(where I live). But I have seen comparisons of the Moto G and low end Lumias and the reviewer has himself said that the Lumia is a little bit more fluid.

What's with them with those fixed focus? I had one C7, and it is seriously terrible.

man it is simple if it is what the specs are, nokia is going to place it below $100 similar to current asha 501 to 503 line up and will decide then whether they sell well using asha or this kind of android? so let them experiment, and let them do what their plan is, may be after this some other high spec can be scene, but first let this device come out, secondly, entry level phones from samsung are crap, so Nokia might be willing to know the interest of people in this segment for Nokia droid phone, that will be able to decide a lot of things for Nokia, still the deal is not final , let us see, what happens next
