     AFFORDABLE PHONE WITH GOOD FEATURES. 12 October, 2013 On Junglee.com
    NOKIA HAS TRIED HARD TO MAINTAIN ITS POSITION IN THE SMARTPHONE RACE AND TO SOME EXTENT IT HAS SUCCEEDED IN ITS GOAL VERY FIRMLY.
    NOKIA LUMIA 520 IS A VERY GOOD PHONE AT AN AFFORDABLE PRICE.THIS PHONE COMES WITH WINDOWS 8 OPERATING SOFTWARE WHICH IS THE LATEST CREATION OF MICROSOFT,S MOBILE-OS,AND AS WE ALL KNOW THAT MICROSOFT STRIVES TO KEEP A UNIFIED EXPERIENCE ACROSS ALL OF ITS WINDOWS 8 SMARTPHONES AND THIS FACTOR IS QUITE EVIDENT IN THE NOKIA LUMIA 520.IN TERMS OF USER EXPERIENCE THIS PHONE IS QUITE SIMILAR WITH ITS OLDER SIBLINGS.
    THE LUMIA 520 IS POWERED BY A 1GHz DUAL-CORE PROCESSOR,THE RAM OF THIS PHONE IS 512MB,THE RAM SEEMS A BIT LESS BUT IT DOES NOT HAMPER THE PERFORMANCE OF THIS SMARTPHONE.THE APPS LOAD QUICKLY ON THIS SMARTPHONE AND BROWSING BETWEEN APPS IS DESCENT.THE LITTLE BIT OF RAM IS A SERIOUS DRAWBACK IN SOME CASES LIKE YOU CANNOT PLAY GAMES LIKE TEMPLE RUN WHICH REQUIRE 1GB OF RAM.
    NOW TALKING ABOUT THE LOOKS OF THIS PHONE,IT FOLLOWS THE SAME DESIGN PHILOSOPHY AS ITS OTHER LUMIA SIBLINGS,THIS PHONE COMES IN A VARIETY OF COLORS LIKE YELLOW,BLUE,RED ALONG WITH USUAL BLACK AND WHITE.OVERALL THE LOOKS OF THIS PHONE ARE GOOD AND THE PHONE LOOKS VERY TRENDY.
    NOW TALKING ABOUT THE DISPLAY OF THIS PHONE,AS MOST OF THE SMARTPHONES UNDER THE LUMIA RANGE COME WITH CLEARBACK LCD DISPLAY,THE LUMIA 520 IS AN EXCEPTION IN THIS REGARDS,TO MAKE THE SMARTPHONE COST EFFECTIVE,THE SMARTPHONE MAKER HAS OPTED FOR A 4 INCH IPS LCD WITH A RESOLUTION OF 480X800 PIXELS.SO THE PICTURE CLARITY OF THIS PHONE IS NOT THAT GREAT AS COMPARED TO ITS OTHER LUMIA SIBLINGS BUT IT IS NOT BAD WHEN COMPARED WITH OTHER SMARTPHONES IN THE SAME PRICE RANGE,THE TEXT,PICTURES AND VIDEOS LOOK VERY SHARP AND CRISP ON THIS PHONE.
    THE TOUCH RESPONSE OF THIS PHONE IS VERY GOOD,YOU CAN OPERATE THE PHONE WITH YOUR FINGERNAILS AND WHILE WEARING GLOVES WHICH IS A GREAT FACTOR.
    NOW GETTING TO THE CAMERA OF THIS PHONE,THE CAMERA OF THIS PHONE IS 5 MEGAPIXEL AUTO-FOCUS CAMERA AT REAR.THE PICTURES CLICKED ARE CLEAR AND SHARP. BUT HERE COMES THE SAD PART,THERE IS NO FLASH AND NO CAMERA ON THE FRONT.
    NOW TALKING ABOUT THE BATTERY BACKUP OF THIS PHONE,IT IS QUITE GOOD,THE PHONE LASTS UP TO ONE DAY WITH A FULL CHARGE WITH SOME DESCENT USAGE.
    THE CALL QUALITY OF THIS SMARTPHONE IS VERY GOOD AS IT IS LOUD AND CLEAR.
    THE SPEAKER OF THIS SMARTPHONE IS ALSO VERY GOOD WITH A GREAT OUTPUT,THE SOUND IS VERY CLEAR AND LOUD TOO.
    NOW COMING TO THE VERDICT,IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A SMARTPHONE WHICH IS AFFORDABLE AND NOT RUNNING ON ANDROID THEN THIS PHONE IS REALLY A VERY GOOD CHOICE FOR ANYONE.

     Awesome! Best buy within 10,000 range! 17 October, 2013 On Junglee.com
    This is my first windows phone(after 3 years on android), I am an android fan and still I am. This windows operating system is better than IOS. Can do all the tasks that IOS can do! But this is not as customizable as android! I still can't understand why would someone spend 50K on Iphone inspite windows providing all the features and more than IOS. If you want to compare windows with IOS, then take some higher end windows devices like Lumia 920! Don't compare with this mobile! This mobile does excellent work for the price it comes! If you have 25K or more buy android! If you have 10-15K budget buy windows phone!
    Regarding this mobile everything is perfect! Front cam is missing(not a prob for me).
    Regarding battery life, man this is smart phone! you could expect only 1 day of battery life! If you want 2-5 days battery life a basic mobile will do!

    pros:
    Good speed (1GHz dual core).
    Decent RAM(512Mb).
    Decent Battery(Li-Ion 1430 mAh) last the whole day of use.

    neg:
    Not that much to complaint about this phone except some manufacturing defect that occurs on all brands that could be sorted out by replacement.

     Great Phone for its Price 28 October, 2013 On Junglee.com
    This is a great phone for its price if you are not from the group of android fanatics. It has superior build quality than the competition and good specifications compare to others. It imbibes the Nokia standards are therefore very user friendly and offers smartphone capabilities with ease and you experience no lag. Device can handle multitasking to an extent and if you don't need the custom settings that are available in android you will love this phone. Under 10K this is the best phone to buy.

     Lumia 520 makes its mark in Market.. 6 January, 2014 On Junglee.com
    First of all I want to say that its a great smartphone. Actually comparing its features with other mobiles, you can't find such great things; but am sure it will not give disappointment to the buyers. its an affordable Windows Phone 8 smartphone. Comparing with other Android Smartphones Lumia 520 is standing in a better place... some xons
    PROS:

    1. 1 GHz Dual-Core Snapdragon S4 Processor. more core means the applications will work without lagging the UI
    2. Big Screen & Responsible Touch- It has a 4" IPS Capacitive display (The IPS display will give great screen experience)
    3. Lots of Storage Capacity- 8GB on board memory and expandable memory upto 64GB
    4. Support HD video recording- 720p@30fps.
    5. Fast Download Speed- 21.1 Mbps speed, you can download fast and play youtube videos at real time..
    6. Adreno 305 GPU- it will give amazing graphics experience to users, windows phone also having more graphics with its UI also. I like its graphics response..!!!!
    7. Support GPS- you can find actual position at maps.

    CONS:

    1. No Front Camera- but its ok because the cost is too low.
    2. Poor Battery Backup- The phones battery will not last for a day. dual core processor and the IPS display and the Adreno 305 GPU are using too much of battery. it has only 1430 mAh battery. But am thinking, which smartphone is giving better battery backup...???!!!
    3. Doesn't Have a Compass..

    with windows phone7 the UI is not so matured and the multitasking was also hard; but Nokia Came back with matured OS Windows Phone8. multitasking is smooth and through the matured home screen will not miss widgets too much...
    Lumia 520 is a good phone for the people who love to hang out with NOKIA especially with a Windows Smartphone...!!

     superbly cool! 16 May, 2014 On Junglee.com
    Nokia Lumia 520 is a really awesome phone. On top of that it has windows phone 8 is! Which can be upgraded to wp 8.1 which I have (dev preview) . And I must say it is damn good! WP 8.1 offers many features that even Android and IOS don't offer. On top of that it has Cortana! Microsoft s virtual assistant! Cortana makes windows phone very personal! And secondly Nokia Lumia 520 is really cheap which I think most people can afford! TRUST ME IT IS VERY COOL 😎!

     This small is big! 9 September, 2013 On Junglee.com
    I was looking for a budget phone for myself after having used Blackberry 9700 for almost three years. Budget, because I am aware of my carelessness and the way I handle the gadgets.

    The phone has an excellent and user friendly Interface, along with an ability to do routine tasks seamlessly. Plastic body and fragile screen are big put offs. I know at least five people who carry Lumia 520 with damaged screen or have got it replaced. In my case it has got damaged twice.

    My work requires me to remain connected with my clients all the time and in less than 30 minutes I could configure all Email accounts plus Social Media accounts. Nokia Music, Maps and People are among the best features this phone comes loaded with.

    Battery life, this may be common to all smart phones these days, but shockingly, battery doesn't last more than a day and you need to carry the charger along to ensure you remain connected.

    Apps at this moment have limitations, but it seems market for Nokia Lumia phones is growing and I am sure there would be more and better Apps soon.

    I highly recommend this phone for young and new users who have restrictions on budget, but are looking for sleek and user friendly phone.

     Best smartphone under 10K 27 December, 2013 On Junglee.com
    Lumia 520 is the cheapest, yet the best quality smartphone among the mid segment.It's features and specs will beat any other android phones in this range.

    Some mentionable features of Nokia Lumia 520 are 5MP camera, 8GB internal memory expandable upto 64GB with microSD, GPS navigation and other basic features like WiFi, bluetooth etc.

    Many people say that Nokia Lumia phones are not worth buying because of Windows Phone OS....It is true that Windows Phone is missing some features like file manager, installing apps on sd card etc at the moment but soon these features will be available for every lumia phone with new Windows Phone 8.1 version which will be rolled out by mid 2014.

    Also, there is a word that there are no good apps, but it is not true.Things have changed a lot! Now almost popular Android and iOS apps and games are also available on Windows Phone.Some exampes are Hill climb racing, subway surfers, angry gran run, instagram and lot's more.

    Though Android has most number of apps, 95% of them are spammy adware and infected apps, but in windows phone the case is just opposite.

    Having used both Lumia and other Android phones, I think Nokia lumia phone has greater performance....especially with response, the camera and most of all the GPS navigation.

    In Android phones, only Google Maps work well but again, GPS is very slow in most android phones.However, Nokia's GPS is the fastest you will find....you will get GPS working in max 10 seconds.Also you can have Nokia's own here maps as well as Google Maps for navigation.

    Compared to any other phone in this price range, Lumia 520 is the KING!

    You won't regret buying it.
