    I think that the Moto G is a winner. For that price $179 (8GB) and $199 (16GB), I consider it a "flagship" phone. I am scared that it will WP users really quickly. I am buying one for instance!

    Sure the phone is cheap and good But it's ANDROID, why would WP users suddenly all jump to ANDROID?

    I mean I am,still keeping my WP.. I develop for WP, but for that price I think its a no brainier to buy. There is no WP (yet) that can compete with the G..

    I understand that it is Android, but remember that with Kitkat the performance is improved for lower spec phones

    I think you don't understand what I mean...
    Sure the nexus 5 is an awesome phone but I'm not getting it because I like wp not android...

    It's fine if you like multiple OS's but I don't think every wp user is like that

    That's a good point... But it is an answer to the Lumia 52X and I think new adopters and some WP users might want to switch.

    The 520 has 8gb and runs smoothly, gets all updates, and costs $100, so I don't know what you're worrying about.

    Is that $179 with or without contract? The website didn't help much.

    I love the 520, but I want you to remember the other storage problem, lack of FFC and Flash.. Don't want to,sound too critical.. But this is a good option for the price

    I'm sure you are right about new adopters, but I don't see why specifically wp users should be worried

    this phone is big effin news and needs to be editorialized and moved to the main Microsoft news forum.....it won't see much action in this forum.

    They are going to destroy the low end with this phone....take 520 popularity and multiply it by Android numbers...I've said all along that if MicroKia doesn't pull out all the stops on a low end device that someone would.

    $179 SIM FREE was 620 numbers just a few months ago....and this phone stomps it in every possible way....like total domination.

    The HUGE problem is MVNOs will pick this thing up and sell the crap out of it. SIII like specs for crazy cheap. Microsoft has to do something NOW.

    They have zero room to eke out some half baked trash like a 525 now...that phone is basically DOA. It is imperative that a new 8xx match this phone feature for feature and cost. Anything else and MS can just close up shop.

    an answer? no this is a smackdown of epic proportions...the 525 should not rear its head now for over a $100 ANYWHERE. Anything more would look ridiculous.

    Android needed a Lumia 520. They have it with the Moto G and Kit Kat. Looking forward to seeing how well it does. Seems like a great little device!

    No WP phone can compare to a phone with a terrible camera, subpar software and poor optimization? Please, do go on.

    it is people who never knew/considered WP who will jump to this. hell it is even for android users who were considering WP that will jump on this. Why do people not get this? It is big frickin news and Microsoft needs an answer like yesterday.

    I think we need to cut the crap about poor optimization...those days are largely behind android now. and lets not even go there with the poor software...cull out all the ****ty apps in Play store and they still have more quality apps than WP....and first party apps ALWAYS lack on feature parity with WP. ALWAYS.

    terrible camera? The Moto G has a FFC which the Skype owning goons at MicroKia can't seem to figure out THAT'S PRETTY FREAKIN IMPORTANT!

    In this price range? The Moto G competes directly with the 520.

    you're spitting a lot of truth.

    i just watched the launch video, and when the presenter pulled it out of his pocket i thought 'wow, that looks like a nokia -anything- from >5 feet away'.

    so, the colored back panels isn't going to be a 'gee what is that phone?' thing anymore when a few million of these floating around college campuses.

    microsoft better step on the gas NOW.
