Nokia Lumia 2520

4 October 2014
  • Summary: Nokia's top-notch hardware is let down by Microsoft's lacklustre Windows 8.1, which still falls short as a tablet OS. There's still an alarming lack of dedicated apps, and the awkward touch-screen navigation of its desktop mode is begging for a mouse or stylus.

Review Nokia Lumia 2520 Tablet

16 May 2014
  • Summary: More light! Nokia's first and last tablet with Windows RT 8.1 has an incredibly bright display, a fast processor and the ability to access the Internet via LTE -- but it also has some unusual weaknesses.
  • Pros: Quick performance, Micro HDMI, USB 3.0, MicroSD slot, LTE modem, Good battery life and charges quickly, Very good preconditions for VoIP calls, Cleverly positioned speakers with respectable sound, Bright, high-contrast display..., The bright and high-contrast display is great outdoors. Even if yo...
  • Cons: ...with clouding, Slightly high black value, Pressure-sensitive case, Mediocre camera, Camera app frequently crashes, No ac-WLAN, Comparably heavy, We would like to have seen more stability in every area. If you press on the display frame a little, you will clearly see waves on the screen. Even j...

Nokia Lumia 2520 Windows Tablet Review

Chip Chick
4 March 2014
  • Summary: If you can’t wait for the Surface to come out with a 4G LTE version, well, you really don’t need too. The Nokia 2520 is a solid alternative that offers a beautiful design with fun color choices, along with plenty of performance and a top of its class display.
  • Pros: Great out of the box color choices. Excellent bright and vivid display that holds up well under sunlight. Comes with Microsoft Office and other great Nokia apps like Nokia MixRadio. Built in NFC. Can store an 80% charge in just one hour. Super solid build quality with a nice soft touch finish for...
  • Cons: Proprietary charger. Windows RT still lacks in the apps department. Lacks dedicated full size usb ports without keyboard case. MicroSD card slot can only be accessed with a paperclip. Wish it were a bit slimmer and lighter to compete better with the iPad Air. Display has some flex.

The Gadgeteer
28 February 2014
  • Conclusion: So when it comes down to it, I think the Nokia Lumia 2520 Windows RT tablet is a winner. With a display that is a real pleasure to look at, great battery life, and LTE connectivity, there’s not much (other than maybe a few apps) that you’ll be left wanting.
  • Pros: Gorgeous widescreen display, Long battery life, LTE connectivity
  • Cons: Larger than most tablets, Can't run legacy Windows apps, Some popular apps missing from Windows Store, No WiFi version

Nokia Lumia 2520 Review

16 January 2014
  • Conclusion: If you have used Windows 8 and like it, and you’re OK with not installing legacy Windows 7 software, then this is a good tablet option for you. It will run you $500 and an additional $150 if you want a keyboard dock, which puts it at about the same price as the Surface 2.
  • Pros: Comfortable design, Great speakers, Superb battery life, MicroSD and SIM card support
  • Cons: Windows RT 8.1 interface can frustrate, Windows lacks app variety of iPad/Android, $500 price tag is steep, $150 price for keyboard dock is also steep, Rear camera doesn’t impress

Nokia Lumia 2520 review: Big and bold

GSM Arena
26 December 2013
  • Conclusion: The Nokia Lumia 2520 is a solid first entry into the tablet realm for the manufacturer, and a logical extension of its smartphone range. The slate is well-equipped, has instantly recognizable design, and, like Nokia's Windows Phone devices, comes with a number of useful, exclusive apps.
  • Pros: 10.1" 1080p (1,920 x 1,080 pixels) ClearBlack IPS touchscreen; Gorilla Glass 2, Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 MSM8974 SoC; quad-core 2.2GHz Krait 400 CPU, Adreno 330 GPU, Touch-optimized Windows 8.1 RT with deep Microsoft services integration, 2GB 800 MHz LPDDR3 RAM; 32GB of in-built storage (around 17...
  • Cons: Windows RT app availability is still confined to the Windows Store, Limited amount of good-quality apps available for the RT platform, Heavier than most other 10" tablets, Display resolution falls behind the competition in the same price range, There are compelling options with the full-blown Win...

Nokia Lumia 2520 review

13 December 2013
  • Conclusion: Nokia needed a tablet. It took its time with the Lumia 2520, and in many places that consideration shows. The decisions to go with a more usable display and a fast-charging system do make sense for what's billed as a tablet for work and play, and while the absence of a WiFi-only model does mean...

Nokia Lumia 2520 ( black)

11 December 2013
  • Summary: The Nokia Lumia 2520 is an attractive slate with a good screen and 4G connectivity for fast data downloads. It's well priced, too, but it's let down by its Windows RT software that forces you to only source software from its own limited app store.
  • Pros: Attractive, colourful design; Bright screen; Plenty of power; 4G.
  • Cons: Windows RT has limited apps; Proprietary charging plug; Keyboard dock is an expensive extra.
