Exclusive digital lenses. Add magic to your photos.

The Nokia Lumia 521 comes with digital lenses built in - exclusive to Nokia and guaranteed to wow your friends. Add motion to your images with Cinemagraph. Take multiple photos with a single click using Smart Shoot, so you can edit effortlessly to make the perfect shot. And with Panorama, you can get the whole picture.

Super-sensitive screen. Keep the gloves on.

The 4-inch touchscreen on the Nokia Lumia 521 is so sensitive that you can even use it when wearing gloves or with your fingernails. So typing, chatting and surfing are easier and more convenient than ever.

Nokia Mix Radio. The tunes you love, for free.

Nokia Mix Radio fills every moment of your day with free music. You can choose from over 150 mixes by experts, or generate your own playlists with the artists you love. Best of all, you can take your favorite mixes offline and listen when you're not connected to a network. Share your favorite tracks with friends by posting links straight to your social networks, or by sending them in an email or via SMS. (Streaming or downloading music over your mobile data connection may involve the transfer of large amounts of data, so please check with your provider.)

Free HERE Maps. Destinations uncovered.

Discover hidden gems. Just type in your destination and HERE Maps will get you there quickly. If you're driving, HERE Drive gives you turn by turn directions. And if you need to get across town on public transport, HERE Transit plots your quickest route, including departure times and walking distances. (HERE Drive on the Lumia 521 offers free drive navigation for a single country or region. An option to upgrade to additional navigation services will be introduced later.)

Windows Phone 8. See your world at a glance.

Once you've tried Live Tiles, you won't know what you did without them. Live Tiles constantly update in real time on your start screen, to show you what's new and what's now. And you can personalize the content that matters to you by resizing the tiles. Windows Phone 8 also gives you 7GB of storage on Microsoft SkyDrive, so you can sync your phone and computer. And you can make your office mobile with pre-installed Outlook, Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
