I'm either going to pick this up or the 620. Not to really use as a phone but just to play with Windows Phone. These budget Nokia phones are actually amazing, the 520 looks like a solid device for only 150 off contract, the 620 only 100 more and the only real drawback is that you can't play the latest games which I am perfectly fine with.

And really, apps are made out to be a lot more important than they really are in my mind. As long as you have a solid twitter client, skype, good navigation, good browser and good email the rest is just icing on the cake.

My System Specs


I have to admit that there are some apps I do use that are absent on Windows, but I do have my Android tablet to pick up the slack when needed.

I'm still thoroughly enjoying this phone, Nokia's GPS is awesome too, very dead nuts accurate and this phone has a GPS lock in seconds compared to the minute or so with any Android device I have used.
