    I was a big fan of Nokia when I was in my college, Samsung came into picture and started producing smart phones and then I turned to Samsung. Now, I am slowly turning back to Nokia after seeing Lumia..;)

    I updated to Black on my Lumia 520, but the glance screen is not available for Lumia 520. That is why I prefer android. You can customize anything without (almost) any restrictions.

      I am sure Lumia will come with revisions in future.

    Gautam Lumia is actually an impressive device but Windows doesn’t attract me as I’m more of a Android user.But still thank for sharing this.

    Gautam can Lumia give better experience than both android mobiles and iPhone?Can it compete?

      Android,Windows and IOS are three different platforms and Android quality will depend on Which Smartphone brand you will choose and how much you will spend on it but Windows is something new and refreshing and there’s lot to come in Windows but on other hand Apple is just releasing small updates on the name of next generation Iphone.

    I love my Nokia Lumia 520. It has very sensitive touch screen and most remarkably it has windows.

    The only concern of mine is its file manager is not good. Can you please advise how it can be resolved?

    Lumia Black is a forthcoming firmware update from Nokia for all Lumia devices. It was previously known as ‘Bittersweet shimmer’ during its development.

    Seriously, you cannot buy a better smartphone at this price. The phone itself is solid, well built and has a great feel to it. Nokia and Microsoft have teamed up to create a user experience that really blows me away.
