Customer Reviews on Nokia Lumia 520 Mobile Phone
Top Customer Reviews
i had to choose between 630 and 520. 630 had the latest processor, but was stuck with a bad resolution and 512 MB RAM. online reviews and feedback and tech sites suggested that 630 is just asking for too much money for poor performance. Then, i decided to get the 520 because it does most of the things that 630 but for 3000 less rupees.
i wont recommend 520 for anybody who craves performance. The phone is breezy enough for everyday usage but is bad for anything remotely intensive. As a back up phone, it is just about perfect. Worth the money. Thanks to the cloud, everything syncs flawlessly between my 1520 and 520. That is always a plus. Make sure you get a SD card when you buy the 520.
Cheap Androids are just that. Cheap. I skipped Asha in favour of the Lumia. While most folks would recommend 525 over 520 because the former has 1 GB RAM instead of 512 MB as in latter, but that's only a factor if you play a lot of games. Some games don't run on 520. I haven't heard of any issue with any apps running on 512 MB phones.
My mother would not play games, so I opted for 520, about 2K cheaper than 525. It's a great device, and pretty good build quality for a sub-8K phone. Gets all the latest update, runs all the apps that she needs, and I'm buying a back panel in a different color to give her the variety.
Limitations, listing just in case: 512 MB RAM, no front camera, and no flash with rear camera.
- Delivered in time as mentioned.
- Product Original.
- Packing was good.
- Helpful interaction with amazon team :)
Bought this handset for my Dad at 6999 INR. Using it from 1 month.
- Light weight.
- Easy to hold and goes well in your pockets.
- Build quality excellent.
- Ips display perfect under sunlight.
- Sufficient features and applications available.
- Battery life very good last 3 -4 days.
- Operating system smooth no lag.
- Audio quality good.
- Voice clarity good.
- Camera apps and camera perfect in sunlight but decent performance under low light :(
- The most beautiful feature i found is the Kid's Corner. Here, you can create different profile for your kid. And you will be at peace, while your child is trying her hands at your mobile. With this profile, your child can not make any outgoing calls or can not mend with your important files in the phone.
- Front camera
- 512 mb RAM (few high graphics games lags or not possible to play at present).
So it is not disadvantages it is actually restriction of this handset ....
- At 3G mode handset becomes hot and battery drains very fast .
- The headset bundled with box are not so good and don't have facility to answer the call from headset.
- There is no key to search within mobile, instead there is a key that takes you to the web search engine- Bing.
- File manager missing.
I had evaluated the 620 also but didnt feel like paying the extra money for the LED Flash and the front camera to take selfies. I loved its size too: its neither too big not too small and fits comfortably in my hand AND in my pocket. Again had felt the 620/720 etc were too over-sized. Comes with a micro-USB charger which means its easy to charge; now that most devices have a micro USB. In terms of usage, find it very easy and intuitive to use. Loved the Here Maps.
Been a though-and-through Apple user so I think it will take me a certain while to learn the other Nokia features / apps. As of now, I am very very happy with the Nokia.
Plus, hats-off to Amazon. You are my new HOT favorite. Awesome prices and even better delivery. I got my entire order (phone+ 2 books + a chess game) in <12 hours. HOW did you guys do it! IMPRESSIVE.
