If you thought the Nokia Lumia 520 was good, boy are you going to have a great time with the Nokia Lumia 521. Essentially the same device as youâ€™ll be getting internationally, this T-Mobile iteration of the entry-level Windows Phone 8 device brings the same package (with slightly different radio connections and a few extra apps) to the USA, here with the same bright white back cover as we saw across the sea (one of three, as it were).

Pros: Good call quality. Comfortable design. Inexpensive.
Cons: Cons No camera flash. Weak app selection. No LTE or HSPA+ 42.
