Nokia Lumia 2520 review

 

The Lumia 2520 is superior to the Surface 2 in a few ways, but as a Windows RT tablet priced at $500, it doesn't come close to matching the equally priced iPad Air in usability or app selection.

Nokia Lumia 2520 review: Big and bold

 

As the Finnish company's first Windows tablet, the Nokia Lumia 2520 cannot complain about lack of attention from both brand loyalists and industry pundits. Announced alongside the Lumia 1520 phablet, the slate expands Nokia's product lineup beyond...

Windows RT app availability is still confined to the Windows Store ; Limited amount of good-quality apps available for the RT platform ; Heavier than most other 10" tablets ; Display resolution falls behind the competition in the same price range ;...

The Nokia Lumia 2520 is a solid first entry into the tablet realm for the manufacturer, and a logical extension of its smartphone range. The slate is well-equipped, has instantly recognizable design, and, like Nokia's Windows Phone devices, comes with...

Nokia Lumia 2520 review: a good Windows tablet, not the best for typing

 

The Lumia 2520 is Nokia's first Windows tablet -- and it may well be its last. By the time Nokia is ready to design a follow-up product, the Finnish firm

Attractive design ; Long battery life ; Bright, vibrant display ; Good camera performance ; Offline music and maps

No WiFi-only option ; Picks up scratches and fingerprints ; Typing in the lap isn't comfortable ; Windows Store still has holes

The Lumia 2520 is a good Windows tablet, with long battery life, a lightweight, modern design and best-in-class camera. However, it doesn't work well as a laptop replacement.

Nokia Lumia 2520 black

 

However, I couldn't figure out why the 2520 is so thick. The Microsoft Surface 2 has just as much girth, but earns its corpulence with a kickstand and a full USB port.

The Nokia Lumia 2520 features fast gaming performance and LTE support out of the box. Xbox Music is an incredibly robust streaming app, and Nokia Music allows you to listen to songs you don't own without an Internet connection. It includes the full...

It's thicker and heavier than recent tablets, and its pointy corners are distracting. The screen has a yellow tint, storage expansion is only accessible with a key or paperclip, and the keyboard accessory isn't as comfortable to type on as the Surface...

Unless you want a Windows RT tablet with cellular connection, skip the Lumia 2520 and get the Surface 2 instead.

Nokia Lumia 2520 review: A tablet in the shadow of the Surface 2

 

Nokia's first tablet isn't a bad device by any means. It delivers impressive gaming performance, has built-in cellular support, an incredibly bright screen, and includes a suite of Nokia-only apps.

Nokia Lumia 2520 review: Meet Microsoft's new candy-coated, anti-Surface tablet

 

Don't let the keyboard cover fool you. This Windows RT upstart is nothing like its direct in-house competition.

Fun industrial design ; Screaming-fast processor ; Presents a serious alternative to Surface 2

It's a Windows RT tablet, and an expensive one at that ; Flawed touchpad design

Nokia has done an amazing job in releasing a 10-inch Windows RT 8.1 tablet that bears no resemblance to the Surface 2.

Nokia Lumia 2520 Review

 

The Nokia Lumia 2520 is a well-designed tablet with fast performance, long battery life and a comfy keyboard -- if you're willing to live with Windows RT's limitations.

Sleek, colorful design; Extremely bright display; Fast performance; Excellent battery life; Comfortable keyboard

Limited app selection; Back is fingerprint magnet; Awkward touchpad; Lackluster camera

The Nokia Lumia 2520 is a well-designed tablet with fast performance, long battery life and a comfy keyboard -- if you're willing to live with Windows RT's limitations.
