The Nokia Lumia 520 is on sale from Amazon now, for $99.99
The Nokia Lumia 520 comes sporting Windows Phone 8, but is being updated to Windows Phone 8.1. That means the phone will support Cortana whenever the personal assistant rolls out from region to region. The handset offers a 4 inch IPS LCD screen with resolution of 480 x 800, for a pixel density of 233ppi. Under the hood is a dual-core 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus CPU with the Adreno 305 GPU crunching the graphics. 512MB of RAM is inside, along with 8GB of native storage. Those needing additional memory can use the 64GB capacity microSD slot on board the device. On the back of the phone is a 5MP snapper sans flash. The Lumia 520 also does not offer a front-facing camera. A 1430mAh battery keeps the lights on.
We've seen the Lumia 520, and its T-Mobile branded brother (Nokia Lumia 521) on sale at various prices over the last year, and the phone usually sells out. If you are interested in purchasing the Nokia Lumia 520, you might want to take advantage of this deal now.

I agree. E has much better display and more RAM. Also feels more premium to the hand.

Facts are facts. 512MB WP phones lag -- and it'll be even worse with WP 8.1.

Fact are fact WP low end devices runs like a dream compared to its Android counterparts. Android is even going so far to make Android one to take on low end WP devices.
WP 512 MB are smoother than one GB smartphones.

Are you saying this from your experience or from the experience from someone else?
As an Android, iOS and Windows Phone user, my 512MB Windows Phone 8.1 device doesn't lag or have resuming issues as some suggest.
12. hemedans (Posts: 320; Member since: 01 Jun 2013)
wp have resume problem because of slower memory card. tell any one who has that problem to remove their mmc and you will see if problem will continue

I would just get the Moto G prepaid for $59.99.
5. 0xFFFF (Posts: 3806; Member since: 16 Apr 2014)
Or, if you must buy a phone from the dark side, the Nokia 520 prepaid for ATT for $40. The 520 really isn't worth anything close to $100.
14. hemedans (Posts: 320; Member since: 01 Jun 2013)
if you get moto g you will sacrifice
2.super sensitive screen
3.sd card support

Nah dude WP is the bright side, but an underdog.
13. -box- (Posts: 3968; Member since: 04 Jan 2012)
Microsoft Store has them for $50.
15. hemedans (Posts: 320; Member since: 01 Jun 2013)

18. kindlefireowner (Posts: 487; Member since: 05 Dec 2011)
Walmart has the 520 for $49. So how is this a sale?
19. 0xFFFF (Posts: 3806; Member since: 16 Apr 2014)
The 520 mentioned in the article is a carrier unlocked phone, not one locked to ATT or another carrier.
24. kindlefireowner (Posts: 487; Member since: 05 Dec 2011)
The ATT Gophone Nokia 520 can be used on BYOP on Straight Talk, Net10, Consumer Cellaur, Cricket. So it's not locked to one carrier.
