    Lumia 520 user. Very heavy for a 512mb RAM, rarely usable, crashes most of the times. If it cant perform better in a 512mb RAM, why make this available at all? We would be better off if it is just a simple and smooth Live messenger. Anyways Lumia 520 doesn't have a front cam. So please consider making a Live messenger available for users with low RAM availability and not force them download Skype instead. Hope it gets noticed.
