Nokia Lumia 520 review

Pocketables
11 February 2014
  • 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.

Review Nokia Lumia 520 Smartphone

Notebookcheck
1 June 2013
  • Summary: Nokia's declaration of price. With an RRP of below 200 Euros (~$262), the Lumia 520 is a very affordable Windows Phone 8 smartphone. The somewhat more expensive Lumia 620 has only been available for a short time. But which entry-level model should the buyer opt for?
  • Pros: Retail price, IPS screen, Micro SD slot, Satisfactory multimedia performance, Good battery runtime, High-quality build, The battery runtime has increased compared to the precursor.
  • Cons: Screen's legibility in outdoor use, Camera quality, Moderate scope of delivery, The device would be better to use outdoors if the screen's maximum brightness were a bit higher. The app store also does not yet have much choice.

  • Cons: Subpar call quality
