    So I have some to the conclusion that the iphone 5 is almost the same size as the lumia 521.
    Never really wanted a iphone since I don't like IOS,but the lumia will be the closest I get.

    124mm x 64mm x 9.9mm=521
    123.8 x 58.6 x 7.6=iphone

    0.2mm is hardly if even noticeable
    So over all the lumia a little wider and thicker.

    Unless it's purchased on contract and two years later it's still worth $150 more than you paid for it. And if its unlocked you can sell it 10 times over on craigslist. Love the 521, but nothing holds value or has demand like an apple product.

    That is true you can sell an iphone for over 300+ after you bough it with contract for $200.
    You can do similar thing with most high end phones aswell.
    At least for me though I don't always have money to pay for phone service.
    I would have to buy it for $500 to own one,since I don't want/can afford 2 year contracts.

    Yes it is close. I had an iPhone 5 and it is thinner and less bulky then the 521. But you have to keep it in a case or it will scratch. 521 is less fragile. Plus, I save over $700 since I had the 64GB version. My 64 micro SD card cost $55.

    I believe jms was referring to the 64gb sd card. I got mine from newegg. You just have to keep your eye out for sales. If you stick with reputable sellers life frys or newegg or adorama, etc. you should be fine.
