    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 you’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). With...

    Targeting the roughly half of Americans who have not yet stepped up to a smartphone, the Nokia Lumia 521 for T-Mobile costs a very affordable $149 sans contract -- or $29 down. Powered by Windows Phone 8, the 521 doesn\'t boast cutting-edge specs, but it does offer a 5-MP camera (complete with a wide array of nifty Lens apps), a friendly Live Tile interface and a growing selection of apps. Find out if this value-priced handset is the real deal. T...

    Pros: Quality camera for price; Compact and solid design; Intuitive and customizable interface; Loud audio

    Cons: Low-resolution display; No 4G LTE support; Below-average battery life; Lacks front camera

    Everyone`s attention might be on the Lumia 925 and the Lumia 928 right now, but it would be a shame to overlook the Lumia 521. This cute, capable smartphone costs just $29.99 down (or $149.99 in total), and gets you a good mix of performance and features with one of T-Mobile`s inexpensive new Simple Choice plans. It`s not a phone for power users, and Windows Phone still lacks many of the apps you`ll find on iOS and Android. But it`...

    Pros: Good call quality. Comfortable design. Inexpensive.

    Cons: Cons No camera flash. Weak app selection. No LTE or HSPA+ 42.

    One of the nice things about Nokia’s Lumia phones is that they’re often affordable – even the fancy flagship models. So when the company creates a budget phone it’s possible to get it for next to nothing. That’s the case with the Nokia Lumia 521 from T-Mobile. It costs just $30 down or $150 if you want to buy it outright. For this price you get a display on the smaller end and have to give up fancy camera specs (like...

    Pros: Comfortable, compact design,Speedy performance,Good call quality,

    Cons: Narrow viewing angles on display,Screen collects smudges and dirt easily,Mediocre battery life,Slower 4G speeds than most phones,

    Verdict: The Nokia Lumia 521 is the kind of budget phone that really feels like one. It has some nice aspects – speedy performance, decent design, good call quality – but they’re overshadowed by the mediocre display and slow mobile data spee...
