Lumia 520 details

What our expert says

Marketed as a budget smartphone, the Nokia Lumia 520 is positioned to offer an alternative smartphone option against the plethora of budget Android devices available. Running Windows Phone 8, the Lumia 520 still packs a fair punch, with a decent line up of features that wouldn't be out of place on a higher value device. The Lumia 520 includes a 4.0 inch IPS LCD touchscreen display, with a pixel resolution of 480 x 800. The display is protected by a scratch resistant screen, and overall the handset measures in at 119.9 x 64 x 9.9mm, weighing 124g. Powered by a dual core 1GHz processor, the Windows Phone 8 device has 8GB internal memory with 512MB RAM. A memory expansion slot supports MicroSD memory cards up to 64GB. The handset has a 5.0 Megapixel camera, capturing 720p HD video at 30 frames per second. The quad band device supports high speed data via HSDPA and WiFi, and also includes Bluetooth and a GPS receiver with aGPS support and GLONASS.
