The alternatives listed by GSMArena are either "non-existent" or costs way more than the Lumia 520 (at least for Singapore that is). Even the Xperia J (my current phone) costs a good S$50 more
If you are not using skype calls and not traveling to other countries - it's perfect choice from Nokia phones.
Battery should hold the same as L620 what should quiet nice juice use and its CHEAPEST WP8 phone even cheaper than other android competitors.
Anonymous, 16 Apr 2013LG L7 II is far better than this...Genius... It costs more...
I love the lumia design.
wish it had android since I can get the same UI + lot more apps + I could overclock the CPU since its the same one used in lumia 720.
AnonD-93470, 16 Apr 2013For me its no bcoz it has 512 mb ram.....some apps wont work... :(you'll have to spend more money, the question here is not about a superior phone experience, but value for money
