    Nah, I'll still disagree. There are average consumers who visit forums.

    Then they aren't average consumers. Average consumers go to the store and ask who works there what this does and what to get.

    I still disagree.

    We have a difference of opinions. No big deal.

    Considering that the new 630 is only 512 mb for memory? I'd say it is safe to buy a 520, and expect it to last a few years. If memory bugs you this much, by all means go for the 1 gig device, but I doubt that the 512 will fall out of favor anytime soon.

    Average customer? Please first define what that means. Anyways, I am perhaps not even average.
    I am not very tech savvy and I was using a 128 MB Nokia 5800 before this, and it did all that I needed well; music, videos, web(opera mini), facebook (app) and a few cool games. Better multitasker than my dad's android. :P
    Anyways, Windows needs updates much more that android, or so I have heard.
    Also I am buying the phone for quite a long time use, so I think 1gb would be better.

    Hm true, if the 630 got 512mb installed, it should be ok for the next 18 months...bit why is there such a big discussion? 512 is ok, 1024 is perfect (games, better multitasking).
    That's it.

    It doesn't really make sense when the 525 is dirt cheap, 'nuff said.

    Have you read some of the questions being asked on the forums? Anyone can ask questions on a forum - doesn't make them a "power user". Just like signing up for the developer preview doesn't make someone a developer.

    I'm not talking about this thread in particular.

    go for 635 or 630 (512MB) or 620(screen size smaller, also 512mb), with compass and some sensor, 52x dont have these.
    720(1GB) would be the choice too.
    also 52x and 625 dont have glance screen and clearblack screen
    if you want a basic phone, then go for 525 or 625
    are you sure????>> I have clear black on 520 and 625 which those have 512 mb of ram

    no you don't, the 52x and 625 are the two phones of this generation that do not have the clearblack polarization(I believe) filter

    also worth noting the 720 does not have 1 GB of RAM

    Only get the 520 if you don't care about games. It's a SOLID phone that's far better than its price would suggest. But at the same time, if you can afford a 525 with twice the RAM... go for it! :)

    Isn't that just the phone in high-contrast mode, though?

    As a L520 user, I recommend to buy 525 or 1GB RAM. 512 just isn't cutting it, as sometimes the phone lags or freezes abruptly when using an SD card. Go for 1GB RAM, better, faster, stronger for only a bit more expensive, go for 525.

    No it won't get updates anymore
    Can you provide some source for your claim? At Build they said ALL Lumias (including 520, 620, 625, 720 - all with 512MB RAM) are getting the 8.1 update, and I don't see why they wouldn't get the next update as well.

    I believe the person you quoted intended to have people panic about. All current WP8 devices will be eligible for the WP8.1 update, as well as the following GDR updates. No reason why they won't get the updates.

    "All" devices. The update is still at the mercy of carriers. The Lumia 810 was not mentioned anywhere specifically. Keep in mind... the 925 and 521 were mentioned specifically as getting the 8.1 update. I will retain my doubts until I hold a carrier released version of Cyan/8.1.

    Buy a 520 and if you like it then upgrade to a 920 or higher. Windows phones don't really lag anyway. And yes they will be supported till 2016 as all wp devices must be supported for 36months

    The brand new 630 which (I think) isn't even out yet, is have 512mb RAM, so... I don't think they release a phone without "future".
