This Nokia is the best phone I've used in a very long time, it also shows up my xperia z in many ways especially in speed and how well it flows through each screen which is annoying when you consider the power difference between the 2 sets, also this phone is very loud...again the nokia kills my Z in that department with a better speaker, the screen is brighter and very responsive, the camera is brilliant for which it records in 720p with no background hiss and minimal picture grain even in low light which again is more than I can say for my Z, you know the more I keep using the 520 the more annoyed i'm getting about paying all that money per month for my Z, I've had many android phones over the years but i have to say what I don't miss while using the windows phone is lagging screens when you flip from page to page, choppy chrome internet browser, apps that take ages to boot...Read more ›
I would recommend this to anyone who's looking for a nice new phone but not wanting to break the bank.
One thing - as it is meant to be a new phone, when I opened the box the phone already had fingerprints all over the screen where it has been picked up, thought that was a bit cheeky but it was brand new :)
The price was highy attractive and I was not expecting much .
However it was a pleasant surprise.
I got used quickly with the OS since I have Windows8 on my laptop and it is quite similar to that.
OS pros: smooth transition, quick response,best facebook integration imaginable
OS cons: lacks apps but the important ones and big names are there .. skype works (but be aware-no front camera).
You can drag and drop files to phone or just insert micro SD card and it will play all music straight away.
It is not the slimmest phone I have seen but who cares, it is perfectly comfortable in my pocket and in hand as well.The black version sticks better than the white one to your hand having some rubber coating.
Battery life - I charge it every 2 days , I am am medium user , some music on the way to work , some wifi at home, some skype , a couple of calls. I don't have any data plan activated on it.
If you are a heavy user you should consider switching location services off as they might eat a lot of battery.
Do not install battery savers,etc from the marketplace,Nokia Care does the job perfecly.
Screen is really good despite the low screen size and resolution , good , fast response of commands even with screen cover on and gloves on. It is readable in direct sunlight even with dark background windows setting.
Audio quality is getting really close to my iPod with my Beats Solo HD headphones ( you should replace the included headphones with some quality ones) it sounds loud trough the headphone output and loud enough trough the rear speaker.No equalizer!Read more ›
Anyway Nokia have really pulled out a little beauty, the handset certainly feels solid, not cheap but well made with a more expensive feel than you would typically expect from a phone that is aimed at the budget market. I would say that the screen isn't amazing but it does a good job and reproduces colours well, again this is a minor complaint as it's a BUDGET phone. The handset has a couple of buttons these control the volume, power and camera.
If the phone is locked you can hold the camera button down to jump right to a shooting mode, this takes a few seconds to fire up but is responsive and in good light (no flash here) takes very good pictures with good balance and minimal blur or distortion, not having a flash does suck slightly but again BUDGET phone.
It's hard not to talk about the overall experience of using Windows Phone, some individuals will complain that there is a lack of apps but I have not certainly found this to be a problem and the apps which are preloaded by Nokia or Nokia exclusives are extremely well implemented. As you navigate around the phone it responds and animates in a fluid motion, swipes and taps are recognised immediately, none of the delay you might expect.Read more ›
