Forgot to mention office is included, editing of word and exel....viewing of PowerPoint...all smooth unlike running OpenOffice on android...ugh
Just bought this and love it...$118 was too good to resist, my other phone is a dual core with gig of ram running CyanogenMod 10.1, android 4.2.2....and I'll take wp8 every time...mass storage and microsd support now tips the scales for me...if in windows explorer it comes up blank, move all photos/music/data etc to your PC using a card reader then let windows or phone format SD card then put all your stuff back on and mass storage works...android does funny things to sd cards...performance is silky smooth like an iPhone....for 5mp the camera is decent and Nokia's apps include panorama and smart shots and tons of other great features...Nokia drive is the best bar none....I travel in the US and data roaming is obscene...drive let's you pre download maps and run data free...worth the 19.95 for global nav...620 and up includes global free, but twice the price...this phone is everything for a ridiculous price...shell is covered in industrial rubber no case needed, it wraps around outside edges making this cheap phone look unibody, the buttons are part of the shell, awesome innovation...two cons, I hate micro USB its too fragile miniusb is so strong and doesn't take any more space...and SD card not hot swappable you have to remove battery...hahahaha hardly con at this price...
Lumia 520 less secure against virus:
strange thing happened that I was receiving/dialing call but not listening other person voice...... Also when I put WiFi on it got off automatically.... In end got solved by deleting all call records, all net history deleted and restarted..... Bad security.....
Lumia 520 is best size of 4 inch for businessmen especially chartered accountants, and is easy to carry. Yet we need a Lumia 525 with same specs + battery of 3000 mah please.....
In the UK Lumia 520 has come down to £60 from Carphone warehouse - it's a steal
I might pick one up as a 2nd phone!
I experienced overheating above the camera when I browse the net with wifi, my battery last 6h with average use. My old L800 last a day long.
Anybody has these problems?
I wanted a phone which has
1.easy controls (Mute/hold) during teleconferencing,
2. good reception
3. good volume
4. GPS navigation for driving.
6. reasonably good looks.
7. Able to see my friend's posts on facebook.
And I did not find any other phone other than Nokia 520 at an attractive price.
(I dont listen to too much music, nor inclined for FM, not interested in photography using camera, not at all bothered about games etc..)

Hey.. I bought this phone one week ago as i was excited about its os. As i have heard that android phone are not performing well so i purchased lunia 520. Firstly, the big screen was the most eye cacthy feature. But actually it is the worst one. The super senditive touch makes typing very hard as the screen automatically starts works without even touching it, if the thump is just upper the screen but is not touching it, the screen types the text. Secondly, nokia is talking about the dual core processor. Actually there are no applications in the windows market place that uses the dual core fully. And in multi tasking this box usualy takes 2-3 seconds. The phone hangs alot and the battry back up is not upto the mark. There is no fm radio. Importing videos from uc browser is a headache. No file manager. No task manager. I dont know where the hell is my phone storage is going on. All in all nokia should stop making these foolish smartphones and looks forward to and starts making digital camera for cinemagraphy and other bullshit camera lenses.
lumia is worest, waste mobile., dont buy this... any Android is better than Lumia phones... apps market full dull...
hi .... i have lumia 520 and i love ma phone ... but i have 2 issues with ma phone no1 .. even after installing ringtone maker i m not able to set ringtones .. if i set thru ringtne maker it goes silent .... secondly my screen use to very colourfull but some battrey application has made it black and while only nokia inbuilts r in black and white in main screen .. rest r colouful . i deleted the battery application then also not able to revert it ... also wanna know how to improve battery life ...
Instead of bitching about stupid things like "records only 720p in mono" how about this is the nicest handset you can get for less than $150. I had the lumia 610 and I miss it a lot...gave it to my daughter... I plan on a 520 to replace my captivate glide...miss having a sleek inexpensive wp handset that just works, has great battery life, and looks good no matter what you paid for it...
