Nokia Lumia 520 Prepaid Smartphone Review

                         Telus’ Nokia Lumia 520 Prepaid Smartphone


I was given the awesome opportunity to review this great phone from Nokia, the Lumia 520. I am going to confess I was a little scared at first (being someone who doesn’t know a whole lot about different cell phones and all the new technologies out there) that I was going to get lost and have a hard time navigating this thing 🙂 I can tell you that it was the complete opposite, it is such an easy phone to get to know. Once I got started and played around with it, I must say it came to me pretty naturally.

Some Reviews I have seen had me so overwhelmed that I couldn’t really understand all the gibberish and technical terms they were using. So I decided when I was writing this review, I wanted to make it as simple as possible so that others who aren’t as “Tech Savvy” like me..(giggles)

Below are some great features about this phone:

  • It’s a Windows 8 Phone
  • It’s powered by a 1GHz dual-core processor
  • Has a built-in 8GB memory so you can store your contacts, messages, apps etc….Memory card type: MicroSD 
  • The phone has an ultra-sensitive 4″ touchscreen that works even if you’re wearing gloves (which is great because Fall is just around the corner). 
  • It also has a 5MP built-in camera (which is awesome when you need to take a quick picture of something), it also has a 4X digital Zoom but the only little downfall is there is No Flash on the Camera. Which only means you can’t take pictures at night 🙂 It does take very beautiful pictures
  • Another great feature is it’s Integrated WiFi and Bluetooth, which makes it easy to connect to the web or any Bluetooth-enabled device! 
  • Some other features include: Calculator, Clock, Calendar, Phonebook, Alarm clock, Reminders, Music, Radio, Unlimited Contacts, Email, Messaging and much more. You can also change the Back Cover to different colored ones! (Which you must purchase separately).
  • Sim Card & Memory Card slots are found under the battery! The Sim Card can be found for about $10 and Memory Cards range depending on size. At first, you don’t really need extra space, as 8GB is quite a lot to begin with.
  • I think the battery life is pretty good on it. Of course this will always depend on how much someone uses it and what they are using it for 🙂
  • Messaging Systems 


It has so many great features, I love grabbing my Nokia Lumia 520 phone everyday and learning something new on it.

Overall it’s a well priced phone, and you really get a lot for your money. They sell for approx $125.

You can find all of the specific details about this phone HERE!!!

Nokia offers a wide range of different SmartPhones with lots of great features to suit everyone’s needs. I HIGHLY recommend this phone to everyone, but especially users who are “New” to the cell phone world. I love it because it is simple enough for even my grandparents to learn, which I am thinking about possibly getting them one for Christmas as it makes the perfect multipurpose gift as well And you won’t even have to break the bank!!! 😀

Thanks and don’t forget to share this great info 😀 Thanks!!

  2. Nice review. I have never tried this phone but I did have a Nokia phone before the appearance of smart phones and I was really impressed with the quality and durability of it.

  3. I’d rather Adroid system than Windows 8. Nice review!
