    Windows 10 Mobile for Lumia 520?

    I have a Lumia 520 running Windows Phone 8.1 Update & Lumia Denim.

    Will this phone be updated to Windows 10 Mobile and if so, when?

    As far as I know the Lumia 520 only has 512 MB of RAM so I doubt very much if it will be updated to Windows 10 as Microsoft consider 1GB of RAM the minimum.
    I tried Windows 10 twice on my Lumia 635 which only had 512 MB of RAM and both times ended up roling back to Windows 8.1 as it ran like a dog with 10.

    Yes, the Lumia 520 only has 512MB memory. I see Windows Phone 8.1 will not be supported after November 17 so I have concerns about phone security after then if there is no Windows 10 Mobile update.

    I bit the bullet and bought a Lumia 650 Win10 already installed.

    It doesn't break the bank as I'm pretty sure the price has just come down to around 120 SIM free.
