I'm very close to making a final decision on purchasing a 1020 and it has got me thinking about expanding the WP empire at home. It would be great to be able to use the Family Room features for what they're intended but at present, it's impossible. The missus currently uses my old N8. I used to love that phone but it is vastly underpowered and features an under-supported OS by Nokia and developers so she's frustrated at not having any of the apps that her friends have. Our daughter uses a Samsung Galaxy Y which is a decent enough entry phone but as she's getting older, she's realising that she's missing out on some features.
With that in mind, I've been thinking about converting both to WP users.
The 520 seems quite appealing to the missus. She's only a casual camera user so I don't think she'll be too bothered with the drop in quality from the N8 but she would like to have access to fitness, diet, cooking, celebrity bollocks as well as a decent web browsing experience without the lags that cripple the Symbian browser. Is the 520 a good option for her?
Our daughter would love to have a front facing camera so I'm thinking the 620, 720 or 820 would be ideal. However, she would like decent Instagram support plus things like Kik Messenger and WhatsApp would be great. Facebook and Twitter are currently off limits until she can convince me having an account with either will be a worthwhile experience, but it's something to consider for the future. Would you recommend any of the handsets for her?
Thanks for any help.
