Nokia Lumia 520, coming soon to a carrier near you

Color, camera

The Lumia 520 has much more basic features, including a 5-megapixel camera, but no flash, and a smaller 4-inch screen.

Round it out

Nokia has given its 520 a round back to fit into the curve of the hand. The contrast with the phone's squared face edges makes it less comfortable around the rim.

Side view

On the thicker side, the Lumia 520 still retains the signature Lumia button placement for volume, power, and to take a photo.
