A surprise package
I have been sceptical of buying a Windows phone for long and always a dedicated Android follower. Moreover, I needed something really intuitive and simple to use for my father who is an ardent Nokia fan. Decided to try out Lumia 520 after reading the reviews here. I have to say, I am much impressed. My father finds the phone very simple and straight-forward to use, even as compared to the older Symbian Nokia models (except for initial teething problems of course)
The interface is clean, the phone does not lag, and the display is crystal clear. Above all, sound level is loud enough, and yet the phone is light and small to carry around. It's a pleasant change from the menu-based structure of most other phones. So much so, I am leaning towards changing over to a Windows phone for myself too!! Above all, when I compared 520 with its more expensive counterparts, I found this one to be feature-rich and worth its value in money.
The most beautiful handset below 10K
After a week of reading reviews in different websites and looking at specs finally decided to go for Lumia 520 and after 4 days of using it, i dont regret my decision. If your budget is 10K, then this is the most beautiful and innovative phone u could get. The metro UI with its live tiles is refreshing and smooth. The performance is great. Remember its got only 512MB RAM but what ever can be installed in the phone, it handles well. Camera is not good in low light (no flash) but is pretty good outdoors in good light. The question many have is windows vs android. well as everyone says apps for windows 8 is not as developed as android. But i found to my surprise that there are quite a range of free apps in the windows app store that helps u get over it (there are parallel apps in windows for most of the basic apps and games in android). Most paid apps and games also have trial versions. Anyways, in a below 10K phone you anyway cant play the biggest games even in android. so it doesnt matter. If you are not a high end games freak and okay without flash and front cam, then just go for it! Rating it 4 star because of its lack of FM and flash.
Nokia lumia 520 is baap
I was a little dicey to go for a windows phone as it was my first smartphone. All my friends are on android. However i can say one things is that this phone is awesome. turned a lot of heads where ever i went
Super smooth interface
very good screen
camera is good in daylight
the only cons on this phone are
the cam does not have flash
no front facing camera
i don't think any phone comes close to Lumia 520 in this price range. Thumbs up to nokia
all those complaining about the phone not having FM radio , Nokia support has confirmed that fm will be enabled on the 520 with the GDR2 update..

BEST Phone at CHEAPEST price
I purchased it on the day of launch only..
I was afraid whether it will up to the mark or not.
But its the Best phone one can have at this price.
I compared quality of camera of Nokia 520(5 MP) with samsung grand (8 MP). ANd believe me, the quality of 520 was better.
At this price, you can't have anything better.
