Paulthagerous:NZtechfreak:oxnsox: Currently Windows Phone is the only platform where you can buy a low end device (Lumia 520) working on the same OS platform as the entire OS product range. Similarly priced Android devices run OS versions generations old, and iOS really offers no low end lead in.
This kind of sentiment is getting a lot of play in this thread, it's no longer true though. Read some Moto G reviews...
To an extent I agree with you, but the Moto G is still not officially offered in NZ AFAIK, and an imported one still costs a decent chunk more than the Lumia 520. Yes it has better specs, but that IMO makes it a low-mid range device, not an entry level one.
In markets where both are sold they are pretty well identically priced, which makes the Moto G a much better buy than the 520.
