Review: Nokia Lumia 521 for T-Mobile

Form Performance Basics Extras Wrap-Up Comments  10  

The Nokia Lumia 521 is one of the best values available from T-Mobile USA at the moment. The 521 has a pleasing design and solid build quality. The hardware functions very well and surpasses most other Android smartphones I've seen in the same device class.

Calls sounded good, network speeds were decent, and battery life was average. The 5-megapixel camera takes usable photos, and the video camera produces results of which you won't be ashamed to share. Toss in the solid selection of Nokia services, such as HERE, and Microsoft's apps, such as SkyDrive, and you're getting a lot for your money.

The Lumia 521 costs $149.99 up front, but that's the price to own it outright. (You can get it for less up front with a payment plan.) It's worth every penny.
