Re: Nokia Lumia 520 Review - Most Affordable Windows Phone

I used this phone for more than a month. It was a awesome phone at this price. No other branded android phone can be compared to this at the same price range.
But only problem is lack of apps. For this reason i give it to my father and switched to android now. The android which i have now(the cheap plastic galaxy core duos, i hate it but don't have any other option) doesn't give me the quality like this phone.

And also nice and detailed review. Great work.
