Top Ten Reasons for the
Nokia Lumia 521
Compared to Nokia Lumia 920

Has a removable battery
The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.
A little thinner
0.80 mm thinner
Clearly lower SAR for head (USA)
0.31 W/kg lower SAR for head (USA). SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) describes how much radio frequency energy emitted by the device will be absorbed by your body. The rate is measured at head level. The legal limit is 1.6 W/kg in the USA.
61 g lighter
Amply longer maximum focal length
2 mm longer maximum focal length. A longer maximum focal length allows you to focus in on a small part of a scene, and offers a narrower angle of view than shorter focal lengths.
Has a xenon flash
This creates a very bright flash which is good for taking photos in dark places.
Much less body volume
30.40% less body volume
6.80 mm narrower
A shade shorter
6.30 mm shorter

Significantly faster CPU clock speed
2 x 1.5 GHz
2 x 1 GHz
1.50x faster CPU clock speed
Much higher pixel density
42.49% higher pixel density
Plenty more RAM memory
0.50 GB more RAM memory
Substantially higher resolution
2.56x higher resolution
Measurably more megapixels (photo)
1.74x more megapixels (photo)
Bigger screen size
12.50% bigger screen size. The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
Has branded damage resistant glass
Damage resistant glass (such as Corning Gorilla Glass or Asahi Dragontail Glass) is thin and lightweight, and can withstand high levels of force.
Has stereo speakers
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound that surrounds the user from left and right side, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
Has built-in optical image stabilization
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect vibrations of the camera. The lens and / or sensor move in response, adjusting the optical path. This ensures that any motion is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
Appreciably faster downloads
4.74x faster downloads
NFC (near field communication) allows a device to perform simple wireless transactions.
Is DLNA certified
All DLNA certified products are compatible with one another. When different devices are connected to the same network, data can be transferred easily between them.
Explicitly more internal storage
24 GB more internal storage
Distinctly wider aperture at minimum focal length
20% wider aperture at minimum focal length. This is the widest aperture available at the minimum focal length. With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
Has a two-stage shutter
A two-stage shutter is good for taking photos like a pro; apply pressure to the button in order for the lens to focus, and then press it fully to capture the photograph.
Has a brand lens
The lens is made by a reputable photographic equipment manufacturer, as opposed to a low-cost unbranded lens.
The manufacturer offers a branded wireless charging kit. To charge the device, you simply put it down on its charging base.
Significantly better video recording quality
1080 x 30 fps
720 x 30 fps
1.50x better video recording quality
Has a flash w/ dual-LEDs
Two LEDs are brighter than flashes with just one LED.
Has continuous autofocus when recording movies
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
Has an IPS screen
IPS (In-Plane Switching) is a technology used for LCDs. It was designed to overcome the main limitations of normal TFTs TN-matrices: relatively slow response times, small viewing angles and low quality color reproduction.
Has a BSI sensor
A BSI (backside illuminated) sensor is a camera image sensor which captures better quality images in poor lighting conditions, and offers better overall sharpness and image quality.
Considerably faster uploads
8.68x faster uploads
