An affordable Windows Phone experience

A Look at the Nokia Lumia 520

The Nokia Lumia 520 is one of a series of smartphones (including the 525, 530 and 630) that represents some of the most cutting-edge mobile technology currently on the marketplace. This model is seen to be a cost-effective alternative to the more expensive models such as those produced by Samsung or Apple.
Perhaps the most important attribute of the 520 is that it is considered to be the most popular choice for the Windows 8 operating system. This is due in no small part to an impressive processing power for such a low-cost model. The phone has five hundred and twelve megabytes of RAM as standard. It is powered by a dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor; enabling it to run relatively free from freezing or other software issues. So, users can expect a streamlined experience for only a fraction of the price associated with more robust models.

For those who do not require a considerably large display, the Lumia 520 will be quite agreeable. Offering a width of four inches and a display of four hundred and eight by eight hundred pixels, visual navigation is very easy. The resolution is considered nominal and its rather diminutive overall size (in comparison to larger models) enables the 520 to be transported and operated easily.

While on the topic of ergonomics and design, we should also note that the Lumia shares the same minimalistic appeal of the 525, 530 and 630 variants. A smooth plastic backing is available in either black or white. However, customers can also opt for “louder” colors such as red, yellow or blue. As the corners are more angular than the rounded edges of the 530 or the 630, the 520 actually appears much more similar to the extremely high-end Nokia Lumia 920.

The camera is located on the reverse side (there is no front-facing option) and it offers an impressive five megapixels of resolution. Since there is no ability to take “selfies” with this version, the ability to engage in face-to-face video chats is not possible. Still, the camera is indeed considered to be adequate for such a low-price model.

The Nokia Lumia 520 is seen to be one of the most cost-effective and functional models on the market. As it efficiently supports Windows 8, it is ideal for those seeking an entry-level variant to the more expensive alternatives.
