Nokia Lumia 520
30th November 2013
As Christmas is coming up, what better present to give someone who has never had a smart phone before, but one of the Nokia Lumia 520’s which runs Windows 8, and has reasonable specifications. Even better some retailers are selling them at a great price. So one was purchased for a present and to make sure they get a great experience from the Windows Phone 8 OS, I set it up properly, and made sure their Skydrive account was created. The phone itself is quite good and feels solid and not cheap. The photo quality is good overall (see photos below), although no night shots were taken. A great low cost Windows Phone which can be updated next year to 8.1 and it is virtually the same as the 520 that was announced this week (the 525 has 500Mb more RAM).
