    Should I update my Nokia Lumia 520 to WP 8.1? I dont know if it will lag and dont want it to become slow(currently its the snappiest phone in the house). I also dont know if you can run wp 8.0 apps on 8.1 (sorry if some questions might seem stupid cuz im new to WP and im lovin it)

    My Lumia 520 runs 8.1 just fine, and 8.1 is fully backwards compatible with WP8 apps.

    Updated my wife's L520. Seems to work and look better, and above all, she likes it!

    I would not suggest you to update because it's a bit leggy on 512 my devices... Tiles takes time to load although it's working flawlessly on my Lumia 820

    My 520 used to reboot some times and had bad battery life..

    I'm on a L520. It's runs perfectly the only thing you might want to consider is the battery issue. After the latest update its been better but still not at the level it was on on WP8. That said the new additions that 8.1 are well worth any minor bugs that are around

    Yes, installing 8.1 will grow your phone some legs, sometimes too much legs and it becomes leggy,

    But seriously though it runs just fine. Sure there's an occasional hiccups here and there but at least it's not as bad.

    The only bug I've seen on my 520 is when I wake up the phone or power it on, the number keypad that pops up for my password is sometimes jittery and maybe a bit leggy as well. ha ha ha :)

    Yeah, my 520 seems a little hungover immediately after booting, but once it gets going, it's fine. Still not as zippy as my 1020, but decent.

    My L520 works fine with no lags. Sometimes, it freezes for a moment and some kinda slow down. It comes rarely!! Probably it will be fixed in the Off. Release. Otherwise, no problem at all

    The tile loading issue has been reported by people using 920s 1020s also.....and its not so bad.....as far as lags go...yes the animations stutter sometime...it wont be as fluidic as 8.0 but its worth 8.1....as far as battery goes it was not so good with 8.0 also and hopefully when the final version releases with cyan...it would be better...
