Windows Phone Central's review of the the Lumia 520, the cheapest Nokia Windows Phone yet
The Lumia 520 is a well-priced Windows Phone for an entry-level model. The option itself provides consumers an affordable Windows Phone that doesn’t have a negative impact on the user experience. The beauty of the Lumia 520 is one would assume it runs Windows Phone 7.8 and uses a CTF display, but we’re talking about Windows Phone 8 hardware here.
That said, this is still a budget smartphone and you should not make the purchase with the same expectations of a Lumia 720 or Lumia 920. There are features missing and corners cut to save on cost, but note this: it’s a superb Windows Phone and we’d never grumble at the price.
