Should I Sell My Windows Nokia Lumia 521 ?
Besides, the Lumia 521 has the better camera and has a really nice design. So, my recommendation is to keep the Lumia for a while and then get a new Windows Phone.
The sub-Rs. 15k price point is still dominated by the Micromax, Karbonn and other budget names, but we also have Nokia, Samsung and Sony offering devices in this price bracket, increasing the competition.
Here, I list six phones that are great for this price bracket. These phones are listed in order of performance and specs.
1)Motorola Atrix 2 MB865 Rs. 16,499 (A bit more epensive than your suggested budget but is the best, within this price range)
2)Micromax A116 Canvas HD Rs. 15,990 (Its the best alternative of the #1, at a little less price)
3)Samsung Galaxy S Advance I9070 Rs. 14,499 (Consider this, if you are a hardcore gamer, but don’t go for it you want a good looking phone)
4)Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro MK16i Rs. 14,100
5)Nokia Lumia 620 Rs. 14,230
6)Samsung Galaxy S Duos S7562 Rs. 12,900

Google leads by a considerable margin with the Android OS to Apples IOS.
A number of phone manufacturers use Android in their phones,which is the reason
for this format having a bigger much share.There are a big selection of apps
available from the Google Play store.
Apple is second in smart phone market share with IOS used only in iphones.
A big selection of apps are available for iphone in the itunes Store.
BlackBerry as of 2013 is sitting third in the smart phone market share but is projected
to drop to fourth.They offer BlackBerry OS in earlier phones or BlackBerry 10 in
newer phones.Software only in BlackBerry smart phones.They were popular
before Apple came along and released their iphone.They since dropped away in the
market once the other two formats became more successful & popular.
Windows Phone OS by Microsoft sits in fourth for market share but is projected
to climb to number three over the coming years,is offered in a few phone
manufacturers.Not as many apps are available for this software compared to
Android or IOS.It’s also the primary software for Nokia smart phones replacing Symbian.
The iphone was the number one smart phone in the world but was over taken by
Samsung with it Galaxy S series of smart phones.
If I had to buy from one of these formats I would go with Windows Phone OS,
just to use something different with the slick tile interface.
Some of the biggest reasons I would go with an Android are these: USB Host Mode (iPhones can use overpriced devices with that stupid little Apple USB thing, but at this point USB host mode for Android just works with most devices and a $3 adapter cable). Hardware acceleration. GREAT camera, especially since android 4.2.2. Full Google integration, so if you have a Google account (Gmail, YouTube, anything) you can sync all of that with your phone. That includes Chrome, which is great on the Android, and syncs flawlessly with your desktop browser. And the stock Android browser has Flash support, of course. We also have Drive, which is a great cloud-based Office suite, with more functionality than M$ products.
As far as games go, we have all the best-selling games. I don’t really play games much on my phone, but if I did I would definitely be pleased with performance. I’ve tried a few FPSs, including CS Portable, and they run great, and look great. Maybe on a bigger screen (like the Note 2) I would play games more.
Battery life is much better with the Android OS than iOS. And screen wise, no Nokia can ever match some of our options. Super AMOLED Gorilla Glass screens, over 5"? Yes, please!
Plus if you’re into this, you can get Beats on just about any Android device, once you root it. I’ve tried Beats audio, as well as the SONY Bravia thing, on a couple of Androids now, and didn’t have to pay extra for it (there are apps for that!).
The Droid DNA is a great, fast phone. The HTC One 2013 looks to be pretty awesome, too. If I had the money, out of every phone currently on the market, I’d get the Note 2, though.
