The Lumia 520 gets a 5 MP Rear camera with Autofocus, Exposure Compensation, Touch to Focus, ISO Control, Geo-Tagging and Panorama features. Unfortunately, the device does not have any front camera for video chatting purposes. It houses an Internal memory of 8 GB which may be further expanded externally up to 64GB through a micro SD card.

Verdict

Nokia Lumia 520 is a promising smartphone that has got a super-sensitive display screen running on Windows Phone 8 platform. The affordable pricing provides compelling evidence that having a powerful smartphone does not need the buyer to burn a hole in his/her pocket. With the great value for money the device offers, we surely expect it to give a tough competition to the other devices with Android Operating system in this range.

Nokia has introduced a successor to Lumia 520 dubbed as Lumia 525, which features more RAM (1 GB) and newer software firmware (Lumia Black).

The current price is beyond your budget? Don't worry, the prices drop regularly. Our price tracker will let you know when the prices drop by atleast 5-10%. Just enter your email, and we will let you know the instant the price drops.

    16 Apr 2013 | gsmarena

    The Lumia 520 completes the roll call for Nokia`s second generation of Microsoft-powered smartphones. Statistically, this means that every step of their product line, from 5** all the way to 9**, has been backed up by a fresh WP8-rocking alternative. OK, that`s nothing out of the ordinary and actually well on time. The Lumia 520 was announced at this year`s MWC, along with the Lumia 720, signaling Nokia`s intention to focus on the lower tiers of ...

    Verdict: Nokia is busy gaining even more ground in the entry level smartphone market. The Lumia 620 was already easy to like, and the Lumia 520, which is essentially the same package at a lower price point, is even harder to resist. The Nokia Lumia 520 should...

    The Nokia Lumia 520 was the fifth Windows Phone 8 handset from the Finnish firm and it slots into the very bottom end of the range, just below the Nokia Lumia 620. And we do mean just below – the specs of the 520 and 620 are remarkably similar, meaning that Nokia`s main competition at the bottom end of the market is itself. There`s also the mid-level Lumia 625 that Nokia released last November and the newer Lumia 630 and Lumia 635. Otherwis...

    Pros: Super cheap, Large, expansive screen, Loads of innovation,

    Cons: No front-facing camera, Average battery, No NFC or compass,

    Verdict: The Lumia 520 looks good, it`s got a decent screen, it rarely stutters or slows down, it`s great for calls and messaging and might it just be the best entry level Windows Phone handset you can buy....

    | engadget

    Oh, for an easy life. Sometimes it`d be nice to just read a phone`s spec sheet, compare prices and make a decision. In a number of ways, the Nokia Lumia 520 looks like just the type of handset where this ought to be possible: it has the same reliable internals and happy design language that have already proven their worth in the Lumia 620, but it makes a couple of sacrifices for the sake of its £115 pay-as-you-go price tag in the UK -- whic...

    The Lumia 520 is yet another budget Windows Phone 8 smartphone from Nokia, introduced at Mobile World Congress alongside the Lumia 720, and following on from the also-cheap Lumia 620. It`s the least expensive handset in the Lumia line-up, at just £140 SIM-free or from £11 per month, but in many ways it`s a more attractive option than the 620. Read our Nokia Lumia 520 review....

    Verdict: If you`re looking for a cheap smartphone, you may have just found it. The Nokia Lumia 520 doesn`t tick all the boxes on our features wishlist, but it capably handles those that are most important. Windows Phone 8 is a beautiful operating system, but ...

    Like the Lumia 620 before it, the Nokia Lumia 520 has a charming, palm-friendly design. Unlike Nokia’s higher-end Lumia phones, it’s not a unibody handset – using a removable battery cover – but the rear is single piece of carefully-curved plastic that feels great in the hand.It’s slightly larger than the Lumia 620 thanks to its 4-inch screen, but next to most phones we test, itâ...

    Pros: GOOD MOBILE???

    Cons: READ WAT I AM FACING

    Overall: 1. I bought a Nokia 520 on 7 May 2013 from Bharat Electronic Trading Corporation. P-15 Bentinck Street, Kolkata 700 001, on installments. IMEI : 355910056203491. Chalan no. 229/13-14. 2. The set started shutting down and restarting on its own, quite a few times, for no apparent reason. I returned the set to Bharat Electronic Trading Corp, which sent it to your sales office. 3. Bharat Electronic gave me a replacement after 15 (fifteen) days, (IMEI 355910058922965), but the new set could not register any memory card. 4. I returned the set again to Bharat, which sent it to your Delhi office via Nokia service centre here. 5. After a fortnight, Bharat issued me the repaired set. 6. But this started giving problems – now with the volume control switch and camera shortcut switch. On July 11, it shut down on its own and has been dead since then. NOKIA SEEM TO BE LEASAT BOTHERED.. I WAS AN ARDENT NOKIA FAN BUT NOW WILL GO FOR OTHER BRANDS......
