Nokia Lumia 521 vs Samsung Galaxy S II: budget boxing

Thought Samsung has long since moved on from the second-generation Galaxy and tech news in general forgets about essentially any phone (even the Lumia 520) almost without fail once they've been out for a short period of time, there's a battle going on at T-Mobile between these two machines. Both the Nokia Lumia 521 (as it's called when you see it working with T-Mobile) and the Samsung Galaxy S II are currently tagged "Top Seller" on the carrier's stock listings, this honor only otherwise given to the HTC One and iPhone 5 at this very moment.
