Awsome Windows Phone 8 @ 10.5k ..Best Perfomance Super stylish whats more go for it!!
I Personally was waiting for this phone from days after its release i purchased it and iam now loving it ... before this i had nokia lumia 510 was quite good but The NOKIA LUMIA 520 serioulsy rocks n is far better than all win 7.8 phones
1.Windows 8 has many apps n being 1Ghz processor + 512Mbv ram need npt to worry abt app n games almost everything works , u even hav talking tom for windows which was a dream for all windows users
2. Super speed and believe me ul Love the UI(user Interface) its soo smooth .
3.Whats app is intgrated and many fixes when compared to previous windows os like u hav GRAPHICAL SMILEYS in messaging , mark n send option in bluetooth and u need not to pair with the device to send any data u just need to mark n send it .
4. Windows 8 has no seperate app for bluettoth as mentioned above its direct
5.No more problems related to zune for symncronizing as the phone is directly considderd as USB mass storage so u can connect to any PC or laptop.
6.Internal Memory 8GB is v impressive and mass memory expalndable to 64 GB
7. Compared To NOKIA LUMIA 620 This has a bigger screen the LCD capacative IPS display
8. It has smart shoot,panorama shoot , and spcl lens for low ligh Pics which the Nokia Lumia 920 has so pics are impressive even at 5 MP
9.Internet explorer 10 is awsome
10.u hav auto upload of chat, photos and contacts to skydrive ie the cloud so no need to worry on backup
11.A mior feature which the windows 7.8 was lacking was conference call even tat is included in this version of windows 8 phone.
12.u can customise the lock screen for notifications
13.battery is long lasting good backup seriously
14.SKYPE also works in this phone with just audio.
15.Games Look enhanaced with the display n the 3d accelerator
16. u can link ur lync account even and Outlook account .
17.HERE MAps r just super awsome .
18.720P HD recording for videos n it works very fine withou hickups.
LASTLY THE BUILD OF THE PHONE IS AWSOME LOOKS LIKE MINI 920 FRON THE FRONT ITS V STYLISH ... UL LOVE IT FOR SURE
1.Not all Games r free .. if ur a game frak ul face a little problem
2.Headset is not having very good sound compatability so u need to switch to a new headset for better sound effects on headset
REST IF I CONSIDER THIS IS THE BEST PHONE AND EVEYTHING IS SO COOL IN THIS PHONE ..... STARTING FROM THE BUILD TO THE SMOOTH OS.. I WOULD SAY GO FOR IT ....UL NEVA REGRET.. A TOUGH FIGHT FOR ANDROID NOW !!
Lumia 520: The Small Wonder
Bought this for INR 10100. Pretty Good VFM if you ask me
Some Salient Features of this Phone
1. The feel of the phone is awesome. I don't agree with people saying it feels cheap. My friends say it feels better than the 620
2. The Screen is non Clearback: So contrast is not as rich as Lumia 620. But viewing angles are far better. Sunlight Legibility is great. Super Sensitive touch works great. If contrast and clear back is what you want go for the 620. But the viewing angles of 520 are better.
3. The Keyboard is just plain AMAZING. Miles ahead of Wordflow, Swype and other custom keyboards. Predicts words perfectly.
4. Feels as smooth as the 1GB WPs. Some apps do not run but most can be fixed with an app update.
5. Nothing Beats Nokia's Custom Apps
6. There is no Flash or FFC. While nokia could have added a flash but the 620 is there for that. But yes. The daylight photos are Downright AMAZING.
7. The power lock and camera buttons provide a very tactile feel in the 520. Something I missed with the 620.
8. WP8 is pretty improved from WP7 (I come from Lumia 710). Lockscreen Notifications, Dynamic lockscreen provides lot of usability benefits. So it the performance from the NT kernel.
9. The Speaker is LOUD and pretty LOUD so. Though you may hear distortion at high volume. Its as loud if not louder than 620.
Excellent phone in this range!!
Nokia released a great phone this year for this price, that too windows 8. Main thing is the design, the design is superb.. I bought this phone from an offline store on the release day.
Main features of this phone are: 1Ghz dual core qualcomm snapdragon processor, Windows 8 OS, 5MP camera with auto focus and inbuilt 8GB internal memory.
Performance: The performance of this phone is very smooth even after installing several apps. It doesn't show any laggy behaviour.
Design: This phone has a great design, very slim less than 1cm thick. This is the striking thing of this phone.
Apps : I've installed several apps on this device, even installed ASPHALT 7 HEAT XBOX GAME, runs very smoothly but the top part of the phone got heated up when I was playing this game.
Battery: The phone comes with 1430mAh battery which is moderate battery capacity for a smart phone.
Wi-fi : Wifi speeds are awesome....I've downloaded Asphalt 7 heat in 20mins.
Camera: Who cares about flash when the photo quality is so good even without flash
Phone is good, Bluetooth work fine, 4inch IPS screen look great but if it come with clear black display like 620 but still happy, all applicatins available but less than android, Battery backup better than android, browsing very fast, good for songs, 8gb internal memory with 64gb external memory,720p videos play smoothly, 5mp camera great, etc etc...@10k...Go for it

Anonymous, 11 Apr 2013Thanks , and everyone else for the review and feedback. Is Opera Mini supported?Why you need opera? You have Internet Explorer on it
I bought Nkia 520 yesterday. Am using Windows Phone for the first time. My first impression is " this mobile is very good. I found all applications, games i want from the nokia store in mobile. So y people r telling applications are less in Win Phone.
Battery life can be expected only for a day
