My Personal Review on Nokia Lumia 520
When incipiently planning to buy a Smartphone for my budget, I just went towards Micromax, Samsung and HTC devices. My friend insisted me to look into Windows Phone. Thus, I came to know about the Nokia Lumia 520 model. It’s such a nice device in terms of your money value. I hardly believe in Nokia for its hardware and design. As I hoped, it has got its unique sleek design. The device is packed with 1Ghz Dual core Snapdragon S4 Processor and 8 GB inbuilt memory. So, that you need not to spend your penny on external storage. An another offer for you, is 7GB Skydrive storage and can sync the content into your internal memory itself. Another specialty is it is an untold Business Phone. Yes! You can have all features as you get in a Business Phone like Blackberry, on this Sleek Windows Phone –Nokia Lumia 520. This adds a boon for Nokia Lumia 520 many more. According to the statistics, it is the “Best Budget Smartphone of year 2013“.
Disadvantages I found
Though it is loaded with more beneficial add-on’s, still it has some drawbacks and here I list a few that irritated me to the core.
- You can download the mobile App directly on your PC by “download install manually” option. But you need to load those downloaded stuff using an external memory card.
- There is no File Manager to view your downloaded contents. Each and every time you need to sync your device to the PC to view and share. There are fews Apps in Windows Phone Store, to access your contents on the memory card.
- The UI. In all our phones we pay a special attention on our Mobile Wallpaper. Here, there is no home screen to stick your Wallpaper. All we have is the “LOCK screen“.
