Powerful with great camera

Despite losing my Xenon flash from the Lumia 928 I upgraded from, this camera more than makes up for it with the higher resolution and decent LED flash. The aluminum band around the edge gives it a high quality build feel and the phone itself is solid physically and operationally.Build quality 10/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 9/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 10/10Battery 8/10
- Great camera
- Fast UI
- Battery could be bigger

Its a great phone if you can get through the day with a full charge. I didn't much like the shape of it, but the pros outweigh the cons.
currently the best Windows Phone out!
I presume with the Windows Phone 8.1 around the corner, the battery issue might be resolved along with some minor bugs when music files duplicate.Build quality 8/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 9/10Camera 10/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 10/10Battery 8/10

Best Windows phone yet
gahess1 has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
I've had two iphones, an android, and three windows phones. This is the best of the bunch. So fast/responsive, the camera is amazing, battery great. All the apps I need are available now. Overall great phone!Build quality 10/10Reception 9/10Call quality 10/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 10/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 10/10Battery 9/10

Ehhh... I think not...
tommybayshore has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
I've always had the latest and greatest phones, recently i damaged my Note 3 and decided to give the shiny cool Nokia Lumia Icon a try... i must admit, in the store and just playing around with it for a few minutes it seemed great, even going home and reading numerous reviews made me think this may be a really awesome phone...so i went and bought it! And quickly returned it...here is why...
The live tiles are cool and i could get used to them, but thats about it. The lack of apps in the app store was really rough, and they popular apps that are in the store are outdated looking and remind of the how bad Facebook looked on the BlackBerry Bold. The "People" section was just a complete mess, updates from LinkedIN, Facebook, this, that, everywhere... most from sources i could completely care less about, even when i unchecked the sources they still managed to come back. Then when you click on a update you don't know if you're going to Linkedin, Facebook, Google etc... just shows you a picture with a bunch of comments.
The email formatting was also a mess, you have to click "show pictures" on EACH email, there is no default setting to make this happen for every email. I get a ton of emails and its annoying to have to click "show pictures" in every email.
The battery was not that great either. I had it fully charged at 7AM, left for the day, was on WIFI almost all day and by 4PM i had 28% battery left.
The call quality was great, that i did like, but i use my phone for so...Build quality 10/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 9/10Multimedia 9/10Camera 3/10UI speed 8/10Everyday usage 4/10Text input 3/10Display 9/10Battery 5/10

- Call Quality
- Apps (or lack of)

Great phone you should consider it.

I love this phone. If anyone is a Verizon customer and is looking for a new phone this one will not disappoint. And until march 16 if you order this phone from a Microsoft store you will get a free Nokia wireless charger. I've wanted this phone since it started leaking back in November. The cons of this phone are rather unimportant though.Build quality 10/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 8/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 10/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 10/10Battery 8/10
- 1080p 5 inch amoled screen 441ppi
- 20 megapixel camera with dual flash and 2 'megapixel front camera
- Built in wireless charging(not included)
- 4 Microphones for optimal sound recording
- Windows phone 8 and Nokia black but that's just my opinion
- Snapdragon 800 processor 2.2 ghz
- Support for ac wifi which is rather new and yes it has 5ghz wifi
- Quick access to camera button
- Comes with full Microsoft office for windows phone 8
- Built in fm radio which is cool
- A lot of hany widgets such as alarms are pre installed
- Easy access SIM card
- Camera does not have 4k recording
- No micro sd expansion slot
- For some reason the battery is terrible I can't figure out why but I think it's a software problem
- Not waterproof
- Processor is not 64 bit which was something I really wanted
- Micro USB 2.0 not 3.0
