Nokia launched its feature-rich yet budget-friendly Windows Phone 8-powered Lumia 520 smartphone at the recently concluded MWC 2013 in Barcelona.

At just €139 (before tax), the Lumia 520 is a steal and the cheapest WP8 phone around. However, despite its price point, the entry-level Lumia 520's features pack quite a punch, making it a stellar device,

Here's a look at the top five Nokia Lumia 520 features we love.

1. Super-sensitive touchscreen

If you thought the top-end Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 were the only ones to boast a touchscreen that "detects bare skin and gloves," think again.

The 4-inch super-sensitive touchscreen on the Lumia 520 ensures 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."

2. Cinemagraph

Just like its siblings, the Lumia 920 and Lumia 820, the entry-level Lumia 520 packs in the Cinemagraph feature. What's so cool about this feature, you ask? For the uninitiated, Cinemagraph lets users add animations or motion to their images, making them fun and perfect for sharing on social networks.

3. Smart Shoot

All you photography buffs can now make the most of the Lumia 520's 5-megapixel camera, thanks to the Smart Shoot feature.

This tool enables users to take multiple images with a single click and lets you form the perfect single photo from bits of each. No more unwanted people in the background or closed eyes or averted gaze spoiling the pictures!

4. HERE Maps

Nokia HERE Maps is arguably the best mobile mapping solution available for users. This app offers comprehensive offline maps and what's more, HERE Maps is free.

5. MS Office

Most people use MS Office in their day-to-day lives. It could be for something as simple as typing out a note on Word or keying in figures on Excel to track your finances. The Lumia 520 comes pre-loaded with the free MS Office app, giving you easy access to Outlook, Word, Excel and PowerPoint.

With the MS Office app at your disposal, editing and sharing files on your Lumia 520 while on the go is a breeze.
