My Views on Nokia Lumia 520

Nokia Lumia 520 is prices as low as Rs 10,299 and the specs are impressive but not that impressive. Here is why.

  • 4″ inch Screen is good but it being only 800 x 480 pixels is a let down. For bigger screen better resoultuins in needed. 1280×720 Pixels is desirable.
  • I feel despite it having a dual-core processor it is still underpowered. 1 Ghz is too low when other companies (not the big branded ones) can give you qurd-cores at 1.4 to 1.6 Ghz.
  • Also only 512 GB RAM is less. 1 GB should have been provided.
  • Thers is no secondary/front camera.

Anyways despite these lows it is priced quite well.We can just hope it to be good enough. It comes in Black, White, Yellow, Red and Cyan colors. You can pre order Nokia Lumia 520 today from
