    The only thing I've noticed is the battery...big problem.. And maybe little bit slower but not laggy.
    Oh yeses battery but well the L520 battery was never a strong point.
    I guess slower is equivalent to my leggy. Dad has Android and my gosh I'm glad I'm with WP.

    I only have a battery problem with certain apps. Especially chat apps they eat up battery life quick. On standby I can go two days without lil or no usage.
    What chat apps do you have?

    There is but that wouldnt be a wise decision since you are missing out on many new featurs like shape writing, notification center, transparent tiles, quick toggles etc. A hard reset would solve the lag.
    Already tried the hard reset. Still not satisfied (will try once again with NSRT) I actually don't mind losing out on those if it works better on Black. In fact ill pass it to mum but I want to make sure that her experience using WP will be like mine , awesome. Not some complicated smart phone ><

    I was under the impression that you could not roll back firmware upgrades like Cyan. I may be wrong about that. Anyway, I had upgraded a 1520 to Cyan and it started having a few issues like long resume times and freezing every now and then. After doing a hard reset the phone is buttery smooth now. Try the reset and hope it works well for you.
    Thanks I hope it will be superb after resetting using NSRT

    I would help you, but you refer to Android as 'lagdroid' and that really annoys me.
    Okay firstly if I offended you then you have my apologies , however by calling android lagdroid I'm merely re-quoting some post I saw somewhere on the net and I'm comparing a L520 with those specs and around that price level ( I don't think ill have performance like there is on WP)

    I'll gladly use a nexus 5(I think which comes without the common bloatware) or the HTC one M8 (windows or android) or the 1 plus 1.

    Okay with that said, I'll help. Cyan is slower than Black because of the new features however there are ways to make it faster.


    First of all you should navigate to Storage Sense and clear the cache, and then you have to see how much data is being taken up by the "Other" files.

    If you have a Class 6 or above SD Card, move all your apps to the SD Card and set everything to download on the SD Card via the Storage Sense settings.

    Use the Files app on the Windows Phone Store and delete any unnecessary things you have on internal storage.

    Using the Battery Saver app, disable unnecessary apps from using memory.

    Unpin Cortana from your live tiles and don't use the Live Lock Screen app. Reduce the number of live tiles you have on your screen as well.

    I believe this is all you can do.

    Okay so I hard reset the phone last week. I have a class 10 mSD card. Also Cortana is not available in my region.
    I'll let you know how it goes after a hard reset with the NSRT.

    My 620 is running smooth. No lagging, except in Photos hub, a bit lag in displaying thumnails.

    What kind of lag are you facing? Apps resume fast on 8.1. They take much less space, battery backup is better. The only concern is that the animations are not so smooth on 512 MB devices as in 8.0. MS is actually targeting at "Threshold". So 8.1 is a transition b/w 8.0 and 9.0.

    I did one the other day but its still not to my satisfaction. Tried NSRT to reset but somehow the software is not detecting the phone. Hard reset from the phone(setting). Tried changing USB ports, tied soft resetting, tried restarting (including restarting the PC) Any suggestions?
    disable windows firewall and turn off antivirus protection.And connect your phone directly to CPU usb port. Don't use any usb hub. Hope this helps.

    I had lot of problems when I updated to cyan post downgrading from PFD, but I hard reset it once upgraded back to GDR 1+ cyan and it works like a charm on my 520,I would advice every body who upgrades there phones to either wait for a week to let the issues settle down or do a hard reset all the problems will be gone

    Hard reset by settings or the NSFT should fix it. just remember that hard reset DELETES ALL DATA

    Just wondering why there is an issue with Cyan. WIth Amber and Black there were no issues.

    Will try that and update you but isnt running without antivirus especially when online attracting trouble? i read somewhere that it takes only a few seconds for a hacker to know that your firewall and antivirus is disabled.
