    I couldn't download Nokia City Lens... "This app is not available because it requires: compass"

    The Lumia 521 and 520 have no compass/magnometer in the device, which means that City Lens won't be able to run on the 521 or 520

    Looks like the 521 doesn't have a compass (Magnetometer) from the spec sheet.

    Sensors: Ambient light sensor, Accelerometer, Proximity sensor

    Nokia Lumia 521 - Specifications - Nokia - USA

    I'm sure they had to make cuts in various areas to get that low cost.
