look at how cheap it is! and if a pc can run xp on that, then a phone can easily run windows phone easily...besides windows is very efficient in handling resources

First PC that i bought in 1995 had only 4 MB RAM and 512MB Drive loaded with Windows 95. Upgraded that to 8MB RAM and 1GB disk to run Oracle 7 back then. This RAM/CPU speed insanity is nothing but stupidity and a means by vendors to keep milking the same cow over and over again. Use your brain and not the spec sheets and you will save lots of money :)

a great phone at that price point, with decent specs and a nice looking phone but all is not done yet when we are not able to play a simple game like temple run 1 on it.....srsly nokia it is the time u switch to andriod first and then we will switch to lumia as i think microsoft is not able to attract big app developers to create apps for them and and most of the good apps aren't free.......i have lumia 800 and i know how it feels when there are no major software updates and not being able to play simple games that even a $150 andriod phone can do it and yeaa even some of the new windows phone 8 does not show temple run in windows marketplace as it requires min 1gb of ram

You really think low end Androids could play games that the 520 is unable to handle? Even the OS lags on those cheap droids, nevermind games! Also, they'll probably release a patch in the near future that allows temple run to work with just 512MB, since that should still be plenty...

but when.....when there is new temple run in the market..come on man wake up,,,,we all know what type of hardware is nokia capable of making and i also never criticize the hardware of lumia, it is one of the best out there in the market.....lumia is not able to get breakthrough because of it's os and not the hardware
