    Hey guys, I'm new to windows phone and bought the nokia 520 because it was perfect for what I needed ( which was mostly reading books and magazines on the go with the accessibility of a phone). So I just installed both Adobe reader and PDF reader from microsoft but I'm having troubles opening a .pdf file. The file is about 90 megs big and is quite heavy graphically speaking. Adobe reader just keeps loading and then just quits all of the sudden while the microsoft pdf reader just shows me blank pages after loading.

    I'm not sure if it's because the pdf is graphically heavy or whether it's something wrong with the software. The thing being that I'm pretty sure that the specs on the phone can handle this file. I'm able to play 720p 10-bit videos with only a little bit of stuttering which is perfectly understandable, and the phone does have a gpu, so I don't see why I'd be unable to load this file.

    You're going to have to install either PDF reader or Adobe Reader from the Windows store.

    I was just wondering, is the pdf not opening perhaps due to a lack of ram (512mb on the phone)?

    Your phones ability to play video is normally accelerated through the GPU or CPU. Rendering PDF isn't. Try to convert/compress the file eg with bullzip to a smaller size or split ir.. I guess it tries to load all the file at once.

    Perhaps another PDF reader app ?

    Btw PDF files can be both a "picture" and text with graphics, normally the first one is harder to work with (and you cannot eg copy text from it without errors)

    you need a mature and sophisticated .net pdf reader to help you open and process pdf document. here is a pdf software that can help you open pdf files, it won't be a problem if the pdf document is in large size.
