The Lumia 520 is the best smartphone from Nokia with Windows Phone 8Starting from 146 € the nice fin is available in colored bowl. He does not look cheap despite the low price, although it is quite obvious that the shell is made ??of plastic. The back can be removed as a whole. In the device find a strong 1,430 mAh battery and the slots for micro sim and micro SD card slot. Of conversation and online delivery times of about 4.5 hours each, we are disappointed. Similar Billi gheimer in this format run no less than twice as long. The call quality with high volume and clear voice transmission is at a high level. Part, we note a slight over steer or noise.

Display & appropriate performance

The Nokia Lumia 520 is a 4-inch LCD display with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels is used. The resolution may be little-to-date, according to the price but quite normal. We really liked white level and brightness.Here the Lumia 520 plays in the big leagues with. The color reproduction falls out quite pale.

Good camera for day

Installed in the Nokia Lumia 520, a 5-megapixel camera in daylight in the test results good returns. In artificial light, the result turns out very reddish. Bars with the camera light comes nothing but headaches and provides noisy, very dark shots. In a flash you have to do completely.

Alternative: LG Optimus L5 II

If there must be a smartphone from the Android camp, pick up the LG Optimus L5 II . A handy, very young smartphone shows the test a current operating system, long battery life and good workmanship. The camera is solid and offers far plus an LED lamp. With 160 euros , it is slightly more expensive than the Lumia 520..
