The Nokia Lumia 520 is a bestselling 2013 smartphone that received positive reviews for its compact design, large screen, an easy to use interface providing a respectable Windows mobile experience.  Some of its minor flaws include a lack of front camera and a mediocre rear camera, average battery life and no NFC support or compass. Windows phone apps are also quite limited compared to the Android or iOS App stores.  The Lumia 520 offers a full-fledged smartphone experience for a budget price, making it a great starter device for users who don’t mind the limitations of the Windows mobile ecosystem.

    The Lumia 520 looks good, it's got a decent screen, it rarely stutters or slows down, it's great for calls and messaging and might it just be the best entry level Windows Phone handset you can buy

    This phone just can't hold its own against the Lumia 620, and we don't think the modest savings are worth it.

    The Nokia Lumia 520 cuts all the fat off Nokia’s more expensive Windows Phone 8 Lumia phones to bring the slick Windows experience to budget buyers. There are missing features, but most aren’t missed. This is a fab budget phone.
