Nokia Lumia 521 – Budget phone with high specs !

It seems like Nokia is also working on a same strategy of  bringing more and more range of  phones to trap customers like other companies  Samsung , Sony, LG etc.

Recently, a few days back Nokia launched another windows 8 OS based smartphone called Nokia Lumia 521 which is a budget phone $150 with quite good specification but lacks LTE support.

Lets Have a look on specification :

  • 4.7 inches tall by 2.5 inches wide
  • weight 4.4 ounces
  • Processor 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8270
  • 512 MB RAM
  • Memory 8 GB internal storage,7.2 GB internal storage
  •  4-inch LCD WVGA display (800×480-pixel resolution)
  • 3.5mm headset jack
  • Micro-USB charging port
  • 5-megapixelA/F shooter on the back — no flash / video 720p HD- 30FPS
  • no front-facing camera
  • Micro-SIM and microSD card slots
  • Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS
  • Battery Talk: 9.6 hours max

A Windows Phone 8 OS at is base, the Lumia 521 also includes all of Nokia’s custom software that helps set its phones apart from other manufacturers’ Windows phones.

You’ll find Nokia’s Here Maps and Here Drive apps with turn-by-turn directions, Nokia Music, which does song mixes, and various apps to enhance the native camera experience. Lenses, apps that hook into the camera app, add extra shooting modes and options like Panorama and Smart Shoot, nice touches for otherwise bare-bones hardware.

There’s no NFC onboard, so you won’t be able to use the Tap + Send feature to share photos, for instance. Wireless charging also fell by the wayside in an effort to keep costs down.

Although the 5-megapixel camera has no flash, it took decent photos images looked better.Nokia_Lumia_521_35660271-SS1_610x342
