    Can someone tell me how well the Netflix app performs on the Lumia 521? I never liked how well the Netflix app performed on my sister's low-end android phone. So since my Lumia 521 only has 512mb of ram, I'm kinda assuming it *might* not perform well. However, I would love to be proven wrong yet again. I'm coming from a iPhone 4 and I thought the lumia 521 would feel like a down grade and it doesn't.

    Sidenote (unrelated): I never thought I would be using a Nokia again, it brings back fond memories of my first cell phone the Nokia 5165.

    I have Netflix through my Xbox 360 and also on Win 8. I am not so fond of the metro style app in Win8. The Xbox and desktop are better IMHO. Anyway I installed the free app on my 521 and it works like all my other wifi PC's, just the small screen. Looking for material is harder though because of screen size. I don't know what else to say, it works.

    Thanks, everybody! Just another reason why a budget WP8 phone is way better than any budget Android phone. Netflix does not perform well at all on my sis "budget" android phone.

    I made a video yesterday showing how Netflix runs on the Lumia 521.

    Enjoy! :)

    Does closed captioning work on the Netflix app on the Lumia 521? Is there a toggle to turn it on and off in the video playback controls?
