4.0 out of 5 stars a camera for vintage pictures, 27 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice little camera for polaroid-like pictures: immages are quite low quality but i don't think you would expect more from a camera like this one.

I recommend it if you want to have some fun ;)

3.0 out of 5 stars you get what you pay, 25 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
very cheap cover which turns yellowish after a couple of months. your ipad will get some minor scratches even with this cover on.

the good thing is that protects you by the heat after a long game play session.

I didn't receive the screen protector along with the case. don't know why.. maybe I should have paid 5 cents more..

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good smartphone... not the battery though, 20 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've been using this device for a week. amazing smartphone!
here are all the pros:
- I love windows 8 os: smooth, brilliant, no lags at all, customizable. (I own an ipad 3 so i know what i'm talking about);
- app store: all the most important apps are there and run without problems. besides, lot of very usefull free apps. yes, it's true, there are not 700k apps like iphone but i found everything I need. maybe those people who play a lot on their smartphone will be a bit disappointed though.
- call quality: very clean sound
- screen: not a gorilla glass, but very good even under direct sun light (i compared it to a nexus 4 and my lumia won hands down)
- maps: u never get lost and very quick to find your location;
camera: 5mp (no flash nor front camera). good quality pics. maybe without the wow factor but, hey, u pay just over 100 quid for this!
- micro SD: up to 32gb;
- emails: way better than the iOS one: multi-selection available; u can also attach several pics just ticking them from your album instead of adding them one by one;
- size: 4" screen is the perfect size to me: handling it is very easy and u can reach every corner of the screen with 1 thumb;
- weight: just perfect!
- overall build quality: 9/10;

cons:
- battery: this is quite bad. as soon as u talk on skype or active gps, battery percentage drops! hope it gets better after a few charging cycles;
- heat: lumia 520 tends to get hot pretty easily when really under stress, especially during a long video skype call. during normal usage no problem at all though;

summary: for £120 you can't ask for anything else. at this price range there is no android which can compete. you've got everything you need: whatsapp, viber, fb, skype.. you name it, maps, build quality, responsive screen (very sensitive to your touch), and most of all.. amazing OS!!!

Definitely recommend it!! especially if you want to spare some money for your holiday or anything else (iPhone 5 16gb: £520 Vs lumia 520 £120).

Update about the battery: the battery is getting better day by day. with a 100% recharge in the morning, with a normal usage (emails, fb, whatsapp, calls, internet surfing)I can easily get until evening. now the lumia 520 should deserve 4.5 stars!
