The Lumia 520 (and T-Mobile’s lesser known variant, the Lumia 521, in the US), was the sleeper hit of 2013 for Windows Phone 8. Announced nearly one year ago at Mobile World Congress, it seems apropos to see what it’s accomplished in that 12 months.

As it turns out, we don’t think anyone predicted just how strong the Lumia 520 would have become. Due to its low cost, where it’s often found well below $90 off-contract, great build quality and all around solid user experience, the Lumia 520 has become representative of the Windows Phone ecosystem.

Indeed, a few people have chimed in on our forums and numerous tips have rolled in confirming that the update is now live.

Interestingly, the Lumia 520 on AT&T launched with double-tap to wake back with Amber. It was pretty much the only Lumia 520 to have it, though others have since received the feature since getting Black on other carriers.

There’s no such thing as “too many” Windows Phone handsets. Right now I’ve got about 4 on me at this coffee shop, but that pales in comparison to Daniel – who has literally every Windows Phone made. Looking to add some more devices to your quiver? There’s no excuse not to pick up either the Nokia Lumia 520 or Lumia 521. Both devices are killer for their price points, which have just got done at the Microsoft Store.

The best games for your Nokia Lumia 520

Yesterday we shared with you the best apps for your Nokia Lumia 520. Why the Lumia 520 and not Windows Phone in general? Because if you have a device like the Lumia 920 or 1520 you can run practically any app in the Windows Phone Store. However, the Lumia 520 and other devices with just 512MB of RAM (think Lumia 521, Lumia 620, Lumia 720, etc) might come across certain apps and games that don’t work or don’t work too well.

The overwhelming majority of apps in the Windows Phone Store do work on all devices, including those with just 512MB of RAM. It’s when we look at games that we see the frequency of support drop a bit. All too often this year we’ve seen a highly anticipated game come to Windows Phone, but without initial support for 512MB devices. That said, here are the best games you can run on your Lumia 520.
