10. Nokia Lumia 520

The Nokia Lumia 520, much like its big brother the Nokia Lumia 620, is a jack of all trades and a master of none – although it really manages to make a good fist of everything it tries, for the low, low price tag it carries.

It looks good, it’s got a decent screen both in terms of size and resolution, it rarely stutters or slows down, it’s great for calls and messaging, reasonable for media and okay for photos.

To achieve a lower price point the 520 has had to strip away a few things – there’s no NFC, compass, camera flash or front facing camera here.

But on the other hand it’s also got a bigger screen, a larger battery, a sleeker, slimmer, lighter build and the same processor and RAM as the Nokia Lumia 620, so in many ways it’s actually better.

Combine that with a lower price tag and we reckon that this just might be the best entry level Windows Phone 8 handset that you can buy and certainly the best value.

Quick verdict

The Nokia Lumia 520 certainly isn’t an iPhone or Samsung Galaxy beater – but it’s a superb Windows Phone device that you can pick up for under £100. If you’re a fan of a simple interface with some quality add-ons, then you should definitely look at Nokia’s latest attempt to win over the smartphone naysayers.
