CNET UK has reviewed the Nokia Lumia 520. They found much to like in the lowest-end Lumia, noting the device had an excellent screen, swappable covers, exchangeable batteries, expandable storage and a decent software bundle, but of course complained about the app gap between Windows Phone and Android/iOS.
With its processor, screen resolution and added Nokia apps matching those you’ll find on the much more expensive Lumia 720, the 520 definitely packs an impressive punch for the money. Its bold display is one of the best I’ve seen in the low-end market and Nokia’s software additions — particularly the Drive app — are excellent.
If you particularly want a more impressive camera, look towards the higher end of the Lumia range. The 520 packs many of the same specs as its bigger brothers though, making it excellent value and a fantastic smart phone to consider on a budget.
They scored the handset 4/5 stars. Read their full review here.
