Finally, after much of the screaming , hard and tensed pushing in the Nokia labor room, mother Nokia Lumia gave birth to Nokia Lumia 520 and 720. Though the doctors failed to tell whether it was a male and female, well guess that’s left for us to find out….lol. And their arrival just expanded the Nokia Lumia family further. Let’s first start with the first born Nokia Lumia 520 though i’m sure 720 will object to that and claim to be the first born.
NOKIA LUMIA 520
Nokia Lumia 520 posing in different styles, got some class. The Nokia Lumia 520 is the baby of Nokia’s Lumia family, replacing the Lumia 510, i’m sure Lumia 510 will be plotting it’s down fall…lol.
One of the thumbs up of the Nokia Lumia 520 is the design. That’s a hallmark of Nokia’s Windows Phones: the appearance is interesting to look at, nice to hold and isn’t afraid to use any kind of colour. Hence it Lumia 520 was born yellow and we have to say it’s a refreshing change from the sea of black, white or silver phones you find elsewhere, which is really becoming tiring .
Naturally the Lumia 520 isn’t that sophisticated in design as the other models higher up the range. No beautiful or spectacular edge design, but even at this budget end of the Lumia line, it looks nice to hold and of good build quality.
The soft curves of the back of the handset means it snuggles down securely into your hand. It measures 119.9 x 64 x 9.9mm and weighs 124g. Although not the slimmest phone around, there’s something cute about its dinky dimensions .
Hardware and Display
It comes with a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, clocked at 1GHz, along with 512MB of RAM powering it. It isn’t the most powerful Windows Phone 8 device out there, but affordable and fits into a reasonable budget, it performs well enough. The Lumia 520 impresses with 8GB, as well as the option to expand by microSD, with cards up to 64GB supported. This is in addition to the 7GB of cloud storage you get from SkyDrive.
