    I use a Nokia Lumia 520 and lately I have been thinking about upgrading to the Lumia 525 as it has 1GB RAM. However what is stopping me that all the other features are similar to the 520. Is it advisable to upgrade to the 525 only due to games (although I do not play games on my phone much)? I want to know if the performance is better on the 525 compared to 520. Or should I wait for upcoming devices in future?

    If you're only upgrading just because of games, it's a terrible idea. Better save up money for a 1520 or just wait for upcoming WPs.

    I agree. If you don't play games, no point in upgrading to a 525.

    dude i have got 525 and and i would suggest u to stick to 520.
    520 is 2000 rs less than 525 and 525 still needs little time to open basic apps like display or brightness in the settings.
    if you are not a heavy game user than it is advisible to stick to 520 because the lack of storing games on sd card makes it difficult to install multiple games on the 525 because of the heavy size of the games.
    lumia 525 is pretty slow as compared to quad core based phones of same price.

    I would suggest you wait for the new 630 which is just around the corner. The only difference between the 525 and 520 is the extra 512 of memory. In fact I am surprised they have not withdrawn the 520 from the market as it and the 525 are so close to the same phone. Probably when the existing cache of 520's is gone they will only sell the 525. I have a 820 and a 520 (backup for my 820). Really hope they upgrade the 820 but keep it the same size and with a removeable battery and a SD card slot like the original, its a great little phone and is really underrated.
