    Well I did post this on the 521 forum. So I'm curious specifically about the 520/521 experience. However all other 512mb phones are welcome.

    Here's a couple of other threads about this.

    I have a 521 that's fine on 8.1 with all the recent updates.
    Not a real gamer and there are a few picture rendering apps that dump back to homescreen.

    Performance wise, it is not much different; but i do like the additional features that really made it worth the purchase. I still get the occasional random reboots and such (but that is just my phone), i can live with it, it does not bug me ; it is a secondary phone a good one for that matter.

    it reboots because there's some play with the battery. Try placing a piece of paper on the borders of the battery. As long as theres no play, it won't reboot.

    Well. The update should come out soon. So don't worry too much about the preview's bugs. :p

    I have a l 520 and after few weeks of struggle now it's better than 8.0 days performance wise and battery life is good too. What is it that is frustrating you? Battery life or any performance issues?

    Mine is quite sluggish, but I didn't have it on 8.0 for very long, so don't really remember how it performed with that.

    I have a 521 and don't use the sim anymore. I have the developer 8.1 and mine is kind of buggy. I've always had bugs with the XBox Music player and I only play local music. I'm back to Android for my actual phone and feel like I'm just part of minions who are hoping WP gets better. I did go to a Microsoft store and played with two different phones and one seemed smooth and the other a bit laggy. For example the one, when you opened the music player, had the "loading..." for quite a while, the other didn't show the loading at all. I don't remember which phones they were. But my Lumia 521 does the "loading..." forever. It'll get better I hope.

    I've toyed with my sister's 521, and performance is best described as "meh."

    It's not really that great, but then again its not a top end phone, and its still usable.
    It just leaves me hanging a bit more, and a bit longer than my 920.

    So the last few days I can't even get my Lumia 521 music player to open at all. Black screen is all I get. Rinse, repeat. Black screen. Thanks Windows Phone...ugh. But I'll check back once the Lumia 635 hits the USA market. Talk about loyalty. Ha

    I'm having the same problem on my L520 and I can't even update that good for nothing app. Did you face any problem updating it?

    keerthi, I'm not too tech savvy with the phone. Basically a while back I updated to the developer preview and I'm not sure I ever actually updated the XBox music app, or any app if it didn't do it by itself, or when visiting the Store. The music player looked different than the 8.0 when opening so I just figured it was updated. It opened and worked for a while, even though it had the "loading..." for a long time. But like I said, XBox Music (the native player) won't open at all now. I've kinda given up because I do use a different phone for everyday use now anyway. My Lumia 521 is just in a drawer, but I turn it back on every once in a while, and turn on the wifi, just to see if it fixes itself. It hasn't . Sorry I'm no help. I'm kidding about the "fixes itself" part.

    Those of you that have poor performance or other problems: Have you tried taking out the SD card and restarting the phone? I had lots of problems with our 521 and they all went away after I took out the SD card. Granted I haven't updated the phone to 8.1 (I'm waiting for the official release so it doesn't screw up WiFi Calling) but it's a simple enough experiment to try.

    I think the problem might be with the 8.1 preview. First, its bot finalized yet, so they haven't squashed all the bugs. Plus the Lumia cyan firmware update is needed with 8.1 (when it comes out officially)

    Mine is average. There is hangups now when there previously were none. Sometimes there is lag in text showing up, the 'resuming...' takings a little longer, etc. I did a couple hard + soft resets as well.

    It's not terrible, but it certainly did not get faster.

    When I went ahead and did the developers preview, I was not expecting a boost in performance; how ever shortcuts and navigations are a whole lot easier now. :-)

    I do expect a slight performance boost on the full real update. :) not only will it be stable but we'll have the latest firmware update for the phones so it's full on compatible unlike the developer preview.
