Nokia has been slowly but surely filling out its roster of affordable Windows Phone handsets, and its latest device – the Lumia 520 – is now available in the UK. O2 and the Carphone Warehouse are both stocking the budget smartphone, with O2 offering the handset exclusively in red for £119.99 on Pay As You Go. The Carphone Warehouse, meanwhile, is stocking the phone in blue and white for the slightly cheaper price of £99.95.
Those are both tempting offers considering the specs on offer. The Lumia 520 comes with a 4-inch 800×480 IPS display, a 1Ghz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 512MB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, and a five-megapixel camera. Everything is packed into a chassis reminiscent of Nokia’s more recent flagship handsets.
Better yet, the Lumia 520 is running Windows Phone 8. Other affordable options are stuck with Windows Phone 7.5 or 7.8, so the 520 is presenting good overall value when stacked up against its peers. If you’re still torn on whether to pick one up, then take a look at our hands-on with the phone at MWC 2013.
