  • Excerpt: The Windows Phone platform is in a strange place. With the recent announcement that Microsoft will be buying out Nokia (which for all intent and purposes had become the primary manufacturer of Windows Phone devices), some are predicting that interest in the phones by other manufacturers

Nokia Lumia Icon Review: The Last Great Nokia Phone

Brighthand
27 June 2014
  • Summary: It’s also a story we’ve been told before, and a fitting end to this chapter of Nokia’s legacy. Windows Phone’s limitations inherently hold the Icon back from having the utility of an or high-end Android device, just like it has with most Lumias before it.
  • Pros: Vivid, engrossing display, Stylish, well-crafted build, Fast and powerful
  • Cons: Windows Phone is still maturing, Thick and heavy, Camera is good, but not on the level of past Lumias

Verizon Wireless Nokia Lumia Icon

  • Conclusion: With the Icon being the first Windows Phone OS phone that I have had the chance to check out I ended up spending more time adjusting to the new OS than I typically would. With that though I found a new appreciation for the OS and can see why it is growing in popularity.

  • Summary: If you want the latest and greatest Nokia-built Windows Phone phone, and you’re an AT&T customer, the Lumia 1520 is a beast of a smartphone, but it’s not available to customers. Instead, Verizon offers the newer, and arguably more refined, Nokia Lumia Icon, which has nearly all of the same internal...

  • Summary: The Nokia Icon is a wonderful Windows Phone device, which is well designed and great to use. It could be a strong phone if you like the OS in general, or if your activities are very much focused on email, mobile photography, web browsing — plus other apps that you need.

Nokia Lumia Icon review: Perfect frame

GSM Arena
23 March 2014
  • Conclusion: With solid build quality, excellent performance and an array of useful free services on tap, the Nokia Lumia Icon may be just a smaller Lumia 1520, but that's enough to make it the best smartphone to run Microsoft's mobile OS hands down.
  • Pros: Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support, Quad-band 3G with 21.1 Mbps HSDPA and 5.7 Mbps HSUPA support, Tri-band LTE Cat4 support, 150Mbps downlink, 50Mbps uplink, 5" 16M-color 1080p ClearBlack AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, Corning Gorilla Glass 3, Nokia Glance, 20MP PureView sensor (15MP effective), 1/2...
  • Cons: Mediocre battery life, Somewhat thick for a flagship, No microSD card slot, Over the top carrier branding somewhat spoils the design, Lack of support for Nokia Glance Screen, Only available for Verizon Wireless in the United States

Nokia Lumia Icon Windows Smartphone Video Review- Windows Phone for Verizon

3 March 2014
  • Excerpt: We loved the Nokia Lumia 1520, and I personally said it was the best Windows phone that I would never use. Why? At 6", it was too big for me personally. Others who felt the same have patiently waited for Nokia to release a smartphone with the same cutting edge specs and 20MP PureView camera, but in...

Nokia Lumia Icon Review: Verizon does Windows Phone better than before

MobileBurn
28 February 2014
  • Conclusion: The Lumia Icon is almost the best Lumia smartphone to date. The only thing holding it back is that the Lumia 1020 has a better camera and the Lumia 925 has a better body. Still, it's in the elite company of being a Windows Phone that I could actually see myself using on a daily basis.

Review: Nokia Lumia Icon

Wired
20 February 2014
  • Excerpt: I’ve been a fan of Nokia’s Windows Phone-running Lumia line since it debuted with the Lumia 800 in 2011 . The hardware quality and design are always superb, and the software platform continues to show promise.
  • Pros: High quality build without a hint of cheapness. With brightness on low, the battery can last well over a day. Quad-core Snapdragon processor for speedy, powerful performance. Awesome typing experience: The Windows Phone auto correct and auto suggest options were spot on. Qi wireless charging buil...
  • Cons: Sluggish camera will disappoint shutterbugs hoping to capture fleeting moments. Phone call audio quality isn’t up to snuff. Exclusive to Verizon. Still hampered by limitations of Windows Phone 8. Missing the popular Nokia Glance lockscreen notification feature.
