Nokia Lumia 520 is an affordable Windows Phone that comes with super sensitive touch technology, panorama lenses, Nokia music, location and navigation tools.

The smartphone is now the world’s top-selling Windows Phone 8 handset, thanks to its impressive specs and low-end price.

The Nokia Lumia 520 has a fairly generous 4-inch, 480 x 800 display and is powered by a 1 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor and 512MB of RAM.

That may not sound like much but the power matches the Lumia 620. The screen is actually slightly bigger than that of the Nokia Lumia 620, which only has a 3.8-inch display.

Nokia Lumia 520 Price

The Nokia Lumia 520 starts at around £150 SIM-free or from around £100 if you buy it locked (and the price has already plummeted to £70 in some stores), while the Lumia 620 retails from around £175 SIM-free or £150 locked.

That means a decent saving for those who don’t mind committing to a network. It’s a little cheaper than the Huawei Ascend W1 too.

Now you can get the premium Nokia Lumia experience for less with this amazing new addition to the Nokia Lumia range. The smartphone comes with all the premium features you’d expect without the usual smartphone price tag.


You can customise your home screen with the flexible and intuitive Live Tiles design, create great photos with a suite of camera effects and options, stream unlimited free music over Wi-Fi and create playlists with Nokia Music, and get around easier with the interactive HERE Map. Do it all on the Lumia 520’s 4-inch super-sensitive screen, which you can control even while wearing gloves.
