4 out of 5 eggsSurprisingly pleased for such a cheap phone

This review is from: Nokia Lumia 520 Unlocked GSM Windows 8 OS Cell Phone - Black

Pros: I purchased this phone because I was pushed into a pool, my Galaxy Note 2 was in my trunks pocket, and well it didn't survive the plunge. I got this phone on sale for $60 and was expecting a sluggish device in both UI, feature set, and browsing speed. I was pleasantly surprised by most accounts.

UI - WP8 runs surprisingly well on this phone, even for it's budget specs. Aside from app load times, the phone moves seamlessly through the UI and even multitasks well. This is my first Windows Phone, and although this is just for temporary use, I found it amazingly easy to get accustomed to.

Features - Being a budget phone there are some sacrifices here. No LTE, but HSPA+ or whatever it's called on At&t I'd say the speeds are tolerable. Camera is rather lackluster, no flash 5mp, small lense. The biggest surprise to me was that there are absolutely no Google apps, and not that many good apps at all anyway. The big ones are there (FB, Twitter, Instagram (beta)). No real Snapchat app (use 6snap if you're looking for one). But I guess if this isn't your permanent phone you can get along fine knowing that the main ones are there.

This phone also does have a MicroSD slot I have a MSDHC 32GB card and it works fine.

I found it rather annoying that, like Google with GMail, with this MS phone you need to route everything through Outlook. I didn't feel like having my gmail forwarded to Outlook, so I just pinned the browser shortcut to GMail on the Start screen.

Battery life has been pretty good, you can easily get a full 12 hour day out of this phone with moderate app/browsing and brightness set to medium.

Again, I got this phone on sale for $60.00, and coming from a 5.5" Galaxy Note 2 to this 4" WP8 I've really kind of enjoyed it as a pleasant change of pace so far.

Cons: While I have been impressed in some areas, there are definite weak points about the phone-

Camera: small lens, no flash, no front-facing camera, you get the point.

Apps: Actually lack thereof. No Snapchat app, WatchESPN, HboGO, Hulu. I have most of my music on a MicroSD card. There are NO decent music players that are just geared toward playing local music. The default Nokia app is geared much more toward streaming and downloading, you can't create local playlists or anything like that. There's Xbox Music, which plays local files, but again lacks many of the convenient features of Android's default music player. That has definitely been a point of frustration.

No Google Apps - Not even Gmail.

IE Mobile - Browser is garbage, there aren't any big name alternative browsers i.e., Firefox, Dolphin, Opera, etc. Browsing with IE takes me back to days when I used a Blackberry Bold and thought I was cool.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this phone as an At&t Go Phone, not completely unlocked as a straight Nokia device. So, I can't comment on whether it will work with any carriers outside of At&t.
