Windows 10 Mobile on 512 MB RAM: Nokia Lumia 520

Many have requested videos about Windows 10 Mobile for their devices. Even more people asked about 512 MB RAM. Personally, I don’t think that’s the right question. People should be asking about how it performs on a 1 GHz dual core Snapdragon S4 Plus. Nevertheless, this video should cover the Nokia Lumia 520, 521, 620, 625, and 720. Have fun.

See How Windows 10 Mobile Performs on the Nokia Lumia 520

I’ve been getting a lot of requests for device specific videos about Windows 10 Mobile. The most requested was the Nokia Lumia 520. I understand. The Nokia Lumia 520 is an archaic piece of hardware. Even in the days of Windows Phone only supporting the dual core Snapdragon S4 Plus, the Lumia was cranked down to 1 GHz. It was last generation, low powered hardware when it came out. The Nokia Lumia 520 was OK…

Windows 10 Mobile Preview will be Available for Lumia 520/521 Owners Tomorrow

By Rich W Woods Let’s face it. The launch of Windows 10 Mobile Technical Preview Build 10051 was a mess. There were server errors, keeping people from downloading the build for hours. Some people were stuck on GDR2, an update we’re not even supposed to be able to get on existing phones. Last but not least, owners of Lumia 52x devices were bricking their phones trying to roll back to Windows Phone 8.1 from the…

Fix Available for Bricked Lumia 520/521

By Rich W Woods A couple weeks ago, Microsoft’s nightmares came true and the first time they announced a specific time and date for a Wndows 10 Technical Preview build was a mess. No one was able to receive the update for hours and even when they finally did, some users were stuck on GDR2, the update that we’re not allowed to use on purpose, let alone accidentally. They fixed the issue for users on…

Nokia Lumia 520 vs Microsoft Lumia 435 Comparison

Nokia Lumia 520 vs Microsoft Lumia 435 Comparison

By Rich W Woods Recently, Microsoft asked me to review the Microsoft Lumia 435. If you’re not familiar with the device, it is Microsoft’s newest low end device, now behind the Nokia Lumia 530. I was skeptical, as it is also the first Windows Phone 8.1 device to use a dual core processor, something we haven’t seen since the original Windows Phone 8 devices, which are really becoming long in the tooth now, even the…

Microsoft Lumia 535 vs Nokia Lumia 520 Camera Comparison

By Rich W Woods When I first got the Microsoft Lumia 535, the idea was to first compare it to the Nokia Lumia 530. When I proved that the Lumia 535 had a better camera I would move onto the 520, the 635, and then the 830. Microsoft contacted me to request that I return the Lumia 830, so I had to blow my load on that one, so we’re back to where we were….

Nokia Lumia 520 Unboxing and First Impressions

By Rich W Woods Recently, I received the Microsoft Lumia 535. The origins of the device are not clear. What I mean by that is that we’re not clear on why Microsoft made it. Typically, specs are exactly the same in one series of devices. For example, the Lumia 630 and 635 are almost identical, as is the 730 and 735, or the 920, 925, and 928. The Microsoft Lumia 535 is nothing like the…
