    Well good for you.......you probably bought a cheap android phone prior to you purchase of a cheap windows phone. Which is why you have had bad experiences on both platforms.
    If you ever want to get the best experiences in life, you'll have to spend more money. Be it an iPhone(we know how expensive they can be) or android or Windows phone......in the words of some wise man....you get what you pay for.

    Have you tried to get your phone replaced or repaired from the seller? What app are you using when the phone overheats?

    Bolt and gear screen means you're updating your software I think. The latest software will improve your experience with Cortana and other improvements.

    All phones get hot after you play games for a couple of hours. You sound like you play games all day, so that's why its hot.

    I've updated my software, but I haven't lost a single file. You should consider back ups of all your data, or maybe you're accidentally clicking factory reset :/

    Sorry but I don't really understand your on/off bit. Maybe you should avoid clicking the off button all the time. A case could help.

    Your phone clearly needs a visit to your nearest Nokia Care Point. It is very clearly faulty, from your description. Fortunately Nokias come with a 2 year guarantee. Best of luck.

    I know people who have bought the Lumia 520 and didn't face these problems. Actually they are pretty happy with its use combined with it's price. I guess that your phone must be defect

    Welcome to WC Henry.

    Let me try to help.
    1 The resets due to a small bounce are probably due to the fact that your battery is a little bit loose. Try to but some small pieces of paper to secure your battery in the housing. This may also help to prevent the charging problems you have.
    2 Overheating if you play games your phone will heat up that is normal.
    3 If you use SD card it should at least be a class 6 and better a class 10 this will reduce lagging and craching of apps.
    4 I would suggest to use the software recovery tool to do a fresh install of your software. See the link how to do it.

    5 Be aware that the 520 has it's limits due to the hard ware.

    Probably above does not solve everything but please try and let us know the outcome.

    well i tried but they said you could of given it back in 14 days after buying it
    You're in the EU. That means 2 years, not 14 days for electrical goods.

    I'm sure your parents can return it and get a replacement.

    It really needs to go to a Nokia / Microsoft care point with proof of purchase so it can be repaired or replaced under the 2 year warranty.

    I own a Lumia 520 and can confirm that this does not affect all the NL520 users.

    The only thing I get is graphical spikes and slight lags. (+resume, resume and resume). Stuff that you can expect from a low-end budget phone.

    +You need to get your phone checked. If you are not a very tech savvy person, don't do weird stuffs and complain when your phone encounters an error.


    Oh, also, please elaborate on "full of bugs", I'm interested to hear more.

    it ussaly overheats at night while im sleeping
    I see you have an extraordinary ability to know that your phone overheats even when you're asleep.

    You get what you pay for. The 520 was and is a junk phone running on junk parts. You can't expect a high-end experience from a phone that cheap. While I imagine the experience is far from ideal, it's also probably still a lot better than what the same hardware would pull off on Android.
