Nokia Lumia 520

CNET
6 days ago
  • Summary: The Nokia Lumia 520 offers useful Nokia apps, a decent screen and a dual-core processor -- the same specs you'll find on the much more expensive Lumia 720. Unless you crave a better camera, the 520 is a total bargain.
  • Cons: Lacklustre rear camera; No front-facing camera; Unimpressive battery; Windows Phone app store still lags rivals.

Nokia Lumia 520 Review

Tech2
3 February 2014
  • Summary: The Nokia Lumia 520 is priced at Rs 10,500 and this makes it incredible value for money and easily the best handset under Rs 10,000, provided you’re ok with the limited number of popular apps available. It has a very good display, good multimedia capabilities, very good camera for daytime photography and good battery life. Add to that the presence of expandable memory, GLONASS, dual-band Wi-Fi and scratch-resistant glass and you have an offer that’s very hard to refuse.

  • 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

Nokia Lumia 520 review: does Nokia need another budget Windows Phone?

Engadget
26 April 2013
  • Summary: It says a lot about the strength of Nokia's Lumia smartphones that they are often their own worst enemy. The Lumia 520 offers a full-fledged, fluid and friendly smartphone experience, but it sits in the shadow of the 620, just like the 920 makes life harder for the 720 and 820 . It's sibling rivalry of the worst kind, because for once, it actually results in us loving one more than the other -- and, in this case, we're still so attached to the 620's design and extra...
  • Pros: Inexpensive, Useful Nokia apps, Mostly good components and construction
  • Cons: Battery life is short for a low-end phone, Poor display, Feels redundant beside the Lumia 620

Nokia Lumia 520 Review

Phone Arena
15 April 2013
  • Excerpt: The rectangular front and strongly tapered back of the Lumia 520 are nice to look at, but the phone feels somewhat bulky and edgy in the hand There is the usual for Windows Phones camera shutter key underneath those, but spaced away enough from the edge to allow comfortable grip while capturing photos and videos with it. Display A 4” 480x800 pixels IPS-LCD screen is what you will find mounted on the Nokia Lumia 520, with pretty thick top and bottom bezels surrounding it.
  • Pros: Good all-around value for the money, Free offline voice-guided navigation, Screen can be operated with gloves
  • Cons: Subpar call quality

Nokia Lumia 520 review

13 February 2014
  • Summary: One in three Windows Phones sold in 2013 was a Nokia Lumia 520, so it’s safe to say this cheap and cheerful handset is pretty popular. But hey, 2013’s best-selling single Blurred “what rhymes with hug me?” Lines was popular, so how much do we really trust other people, even if there are millions of them? Exactly. And that’s why this Nokia needs a closer examination.
  • Pros: Cheap, Nokia’s camera, Drive and music apps are ace, Decent battery life
  • Cons: Feels cheap, So-so screen, Sporadically slow
