  • Summary: Nokia Lumia 520 is one of the cheapest Windows 8 Smart Phone available in the market, though it doesn’t look cheap- neither in appearance nor in performance. It might lack most of the flair of the Lumia 620, but proves to be a great performer despite being a low-end phone. • Strong build • Affordable • Impressively fluid UI • Responsive touch • Neat design • Good performance • Lacks front camera • No NFC and compass • Reflective screen • No LED flash Since long, critics...

  • Summary: The Lumia 520 is the most affordable Windows Phone ever made by Nokia. However, in a bid to keep the device's cost down Nokia has stripped the device of close to all the innovations that made its Lumia devices great, diminishing the 520's overall appeal.
  • Pros: Very cheap, Windows Phone 8 business perks, interchangeable covers, Here Maps and Drive
  • Cons: Screen suffers from glare issues, camera isn't great, chassis is prone to picking up marks

Nokia Lumia 520

  • Summary: This is the most affordable of Nokia’s Lumia range so far. Its comfortable-to-hold curved body and colourful chassis are standout features. The display is only four inches, and it’s rather dim, but still manages to be pretty sharp. Nokia has included some great extra tools and apps – it’s just a pity there’s no front-facing snapper or NFC support. Nice looking four-inch display; Colourful, comfy-to-hold chassis; Nokia bonus tools and apps.
  • Pros: Nice looking four-inch display; Colourful, comfy-to-hold chassis; Nokia bonus tools and apps.
  • Cons: Snapper quality inconsistent; Display a tad dim; No front-facing snapper or NFC support.

  • Summary: Gute Verarbeitung, buntes Design, eine vernünftige Ausstattung und die umfangreichen Nokia-Services sind die Pluspunkte des Nokia Lumia 520. Das Modell markiert den bislang günstigsten Einstieg in das Windows Phone-Universum und muss sich auch nicht vor der Android-Konkurrenz verstecken.
  • Pros: wertige Verarbeitung, farbenfrohes Design, Nokia-Services
  • Cons: schwache Kamera, mäßige Akkulaufzeit

  • Summary: Das Nokia Lumia 520 ist das günstigste Windows-Phone im Angebot der Finnen. Ob darunter die Leistung leidet und wo der Rotstift angesetzt wurde, klärt der Test.

  • Cons: Keine Frontkamera, Keine Blitz-LED, Stark spiegelnder wenig kontrastreicher Bildschirm
