You can adjust the font size in settings do you can make it large if you need to. You can also turn on a magnifier, so you can increase the size on things you chose.

Question

Is the processor dual-core?

Several website reviews mention this phone has a dual core 1 GHz processor. But this page just says it has 1 GHz processor, but doesn't mention dual core. Which is it?
Also, will the 512 Mb RAM mean it won't run many apps? I know most Windows phones have 1 Gb RAM. Thanks!

According to the official Windows Phone Webpage and Nokia's Official USA Site, the Lumia 521 has a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Dual-core 1 GHz Processor.

As far as apps and memory. Most all apps available in the Windows Store will run perfectly fine on this device. There are are just a handful, mostly heavy games that may not. Every app I've downloaded so far runs great! This device is very zippy with everything it does.

answer 2
It does indeed have a dual core processor.

512MB of RAM means that some Windows Phone apps cannot run on the Lumia 521 - mainly from the games section (like Temple Run).

Hope this helps!

If you have a “standard” size sim card it will not fit. I had to purchase a micro sim.

It uses a micro sim. You either need to cut down your standard sim or transfer your account to the micro sim that comes with the phone. You can get nano/micro sim holders that allow you to use your micro sim in a standard size sim phone. They cost as little as 99 cents on eBay.

Only 8GB on board, and some of that is taken up by the OS (about 1GB, leaving you with about 7 free.) But, it can handle up to a 64gb micro sd card for photos, music, files, etc.

In the handbook is said to keep away from moisture, good example would be in the bathroom while taking a hot bath, outside in the rain. and really, no need to drop test it, the feel of the phone and the way the back is one complete snap on cover and front not being gorilla glass would not be a good idea. That said, its a value phone worth the price as long as your responsible.
