With a resolution of 800 x 480 which puts it in line with the Lumia 820 (unbelievable, considering the price!), this touchscreen phone supports super-sensitive touch, so you don't even have to take your gloves off to use it. That's going to come in handy on cold days when you want to take a few snaps..
Speaking of, the Lumia 520's 5 megapixel camera with autofocus offers you decent quality pics and 7290p HD movie capture, alongside unique Nokia lenses, Smart Shoot and Cinemagraph technology. Not only will you be able to capture some great shots to upload to your Facebook or Twitter feed, with 8GB internal storage (expandable to 64GB with a microSD card), there's plenty of room to store albums worth of the stuff.
Unlike its bigger Lumia brothers, the backplate is made of a single piece of curved, removable plastic that feels great to hold and fits snugly in the palm. The advantage of this is that the battery is replaceable and phone covers are interchangeable, so you can swap different coloured backplates to keep your phone looking swish, or even use one with an NFC chip to make contactless payments.
The Lumia 520 also comes with the HERE suite on board, which is shorthand for Nokia’s maps and GPS navigation apps. These handy little numbers let you download maps for offline use, so you can ditch your dedicated SatNav and combine all that functionality into just one device. The operating system - Windows 8, of course - offers you the user-friendly interface of Live Tiles and a system that works just as well on budget phones as it does with more premium devices. Windows 8 phones are growing in popularity every day - and with the Orange Lumia 520, it's not hard to see why.
So if you're looking to make the leap to smartphone technology, or you'd like an updated device that looks stylish, performs well and doesn't break the bank - then the Orange Nokia Lumia 520 is the perfect number for you.
