    The update was for some volume bug,however it did show eq for some micro second,nokia can enable it as i feel the hardware is same as720,620 so no reason why it won't work.

    Man i remember it used to display equaliser for a split second even before the update ! And as for same hardware, that's not correct, to start with, 520 doesn't have a compass.. And i dont think if they wanted to enable it in 520, they'd update it first and then enable it, that doesn't sound plausible...

    Secondly, did someone say a volume bug ? So did they finally fix the bug of not changing volumes ?

    The Lumia 520 does not have an equalizer and I am informed will never have one.

    It is not because of hardware limitations or anything about the phone itself, but rather because Nokia uses these omission of features as product differentiation among the Lumia line, so that the higher end models will have more demand because simply it has more features.

    So unless Nokia completely changes it's strategy on phone differentiation, do not count on getting an equalizer anytime soon

    Contrary to all the information out there. Source? Link? Especially the part about "not a hardware limitation".

    It is not a hardware limitation due to the fact that it has exactly the same chipset and GPU as the equalizer-equipped Lumia 720.

    I had this very concern long ago when I was choosing between the various Lumia models, so that is why I contacted Nokia PH, and they gave me the reasoning above.

    I'm really confused about what is in Nokia's mind about it... Would they add an equaliser now, or would they just forget their most selling phone just because its too old to sell now ?
    Anyone having an idea whether the equaliser would come now ?

    because the update was for a more serious bug. Noticed that sometimes your volume gets struck to whatever level you set it to when you open a song ? That bug is fixed now, goodness ! :-P

    then you luckily didn't have mono and stereo tracks mixed in your library. When one had different mono and stereo tracks, and say if you were listening to a stereo track and the next one is a mono, and you changed the volume within the first 3-4 seconds of the song changing, then your volume would get struck at that level until you change the song. And it would get struck at that level across your phone, for all games and apps until you restarted the phone.

    Don't quite follow you...could you explain "struck"?
    I'm just a stupid ***** that probably comes from a different part of the world where struck is the past participle of strike and is probably used differently.

    edit: oooh, I think you mean "stuck"! Now I see.

    Hmmm, never had that problem here man.
