Nokia Lumia 521 MetroPCS

I got a chance to test out one of the newer phones carried by MetroPCS which is the Nokia Lumia 521 Windows phone. 




Lets start with the service, MetroPCS covers a lot of ground and I was happy to find out that my phone had signal pretty much everywhere I went. I love MetroPCS because unlike ATT, Tmobile or whatever carrier you might have I can do whatever whenever I want. What does that mean??? It means I am not locked down to a contract on which I must pay a bill or be stuck with the same phone for 2 years. I also like this because if my kid is bad I can cut them off for however long I want whenever I wanna give them service again I go online and reactivate the phone for as little as $40 a month!!! Do you know what $40 a month gets me?!?!? I get UNLIMITED TALK AND TEXT with 500MB which is more than enough data for me to be online when and however I would like. Check out your local MetroPCS and see how much you can and will save!

Now about the phone. I must admit its nothing like what I am used to well at least on a phone. Its more like having a mini computer in my pocket, but it makes calls and fits in my pocket. The Nokia Lumia 521 Windows phone is just that its Windows on a phone. I like that I can look at it and see all my friends on facebook right there on my home screen. You use the phone like you would if you had Windows 8 which with a tap you can make what's more important stand out or what is less important teenie tiny. I love my pictures so I have this as a huge space on my phone. 

Pictures wow I have never seen such great pics from a phone in a long time and lets face it most of us use our phones for pics. The Nokia Lumia 521 comes with all kinds of apps for photos I was shocked at all I could find and loved. My favorite once I figured out how to use it is the Nokia Cinemagraph. The Nokia Cinemagraph is so much fun what it does is lets say you have 3 kids running in circles you record them then you can erase what you wish not to move so now you have 2 kids who are not moving while the one child is running in circles. Its very cool I love it. Another great feature is the Nokia Creative Studio which you can take your childs pic make the pic black and white but lets say they have a green eyes you can make only the green stand out so your child is black and white but their eyes pop! I love the photo apps on this phone they are wonderful. 

Since I am a busy mom I have my forgetful moments which I get out and my phone is in my lap and falls or like with this phone it is very smooth so it slides easy out of your hands, I dropped it a few times and everything stayed in tacked best part is the battery stayed in even when the case fell off! I was very impressed by that since my older phones  I had to find 3 pieces front back and battery not with this phone the battery will stay in place!

I would highly recommend both the phone and service for anyone looking to browse the web, make a call, send a text, take a pic or whatever it is you do. You will love and enjoy the phone while saving money.
