Ehm... My friend's got the 520. It's a cool device but lately she's got troubles with the Accelerometer... She has to restart her phone to make it work everytime it gets broken. That's my only complaint about 520 :).
But I think 8S looks better. It's up to you. The Nokia apps... We barely use them.

Have you checked the bands to make sure you won't be stuck losing connectivity? Other than that, they are nearly identical Spec for Spec. The 8S is a touch lighter (~10 grams) and also has a bigger battery (1700 mAh vs. 520's 1450). The 520 does have 8GB built in but they both have MicroSD slots anyway.
I do not think it would be a downgrade. But it isn't really an upgrade.

if you're talking about memory, it's an upgrade...
if you're talking about screen, camera, glass panel, it's a downgrade..
just like Curtieson said.. it isn't really an upgrade after all
but i think the 620 or 720 can be considered as an upgrade for 8S...
620 got lower battery cap though.. so the battery on 620 is a downgrade for the 8S..
the other is pretty much the same except the 620 got 8gigs of storage
