Nokia Lumia 520 review: low end but not low rent

gearburn.com
8 March 2014
  • Excerpt: The Nokia Lumia 520 is Nokia’s fifth Windows Phone 8 handset. It’s a phone which slots into the very bottom end of the range, just below the Nokia Lumia 620 . And we do mean just below – the specs of the 520 and 620 are remarkably similar, meaning that Nokia’s main competition at the bottom end of the market is itself. Otherwise, its biggest rival is likely to be the recently launched Huawei Ascend W1 - a low-end handset that we’re rather fond of.

Nokia Lumia 520 review

  • Summary: The Lumia 520 is very obviously a budget smartphone: a subpar camera, no LTE, and boring specs round out the device. There’s a reason it costs only $59 off-contract, and it’s because of what’s missing – not what’s there. At the same time, it runs Windows Phone and all of its apps very well. Phone calls are spectacularly clear, too, and everything else that you’d need to use a smartphone for can be completed in a timely manner.

  • Conclusion: The pay-as-you-go Nokia Lumia 520 is a solid introductory smartphone on AT&T's Go Phone prepaid service, provided photography isn't a priority.
  • Pros: Cheap, compact, capable Windows Phone device. Easy-to-use interface.
  • Cons: No front-facing camera and a mediocre rear camera. Slow HSPA+ broadband. Same Windows Phone app-availability issues as ever.

Nokia Lumia 520 Review

thinkdigit.com
18 July 2013
  • Summary: This is the cheapest Windows Phone 8 device you can buy at the moment, a mobile platform that Microsoft has promised to support at least for the next two years. The phone is incredibly well priced at Rs. 10,499 and should attract many of those looking to buy their first smartphones, or students who may be on a tight budget. However, just because the phone is cheap, does that mean it can't live up to our expectations? We find out.
  • Pros: Extremely fluid UI, MicroSD slot for upgrading storage to 64GB, Sturdy build that should withstand some abuse
  • Cons: No LED Flash or front facing camera, Relatively low-res screen

Lumia 520 Review - The most affordable Nokia Windows Phone

Windows Phone Central
9 July 2013
  • Excerpt: The Lumia 520 is a well-priced Windows Phone for an entry-level model. The option itself provides consumers an affordable Windows Phone that doesn’t have a negative impact on the user experience. The beauty of the Lumia 520 is one would assume it runs Windows Phone 7.8 and uses a CTF display, but we’re talking about Windows Phone 8 hardware here.
