Nokia Lumia Icon Review

0. phoneArena 13 Feb 2014, 06:39 posted on

More recently, AT&T continued to reap all of Nokia’s fruitful labors with the Lumia 1520, a game changing Windows Phone in respect to its specs and size. Following in tradition, from what it seems, Verizon is laying claim to a modified version – the non-number branded Nokia Lumia Icon. Taking almost everything we love about the mighty Lumia 1520, the Icon’s package is slightly smaller, due to the 5-inch display it’s packing along for the ride...

I hate that Nokia guys do all the work, while M$ takes the credit. Nokia team designs great hardware and imaging technology, while M$ guys only bath in money.

1820 will get above 9 for sure. That's my prediction.

If you've REALLY used the OS on a phone, you'll know what he's talking about. :)

maybe it's crap when all you're trying to do is send snapchats and post tweets all day but for those of us who use it for work it's actually kind of spiffy.

i would recommend ios or even a forked version of Android to better suit your needs

First, A phone of this calibre is more than an 8.5

Second, talking about Nokia as a whole, look at this graph illustrating Nokia's share:

Detailed examination of the graph:

After Elop abandoned Symbian and forced Nokia to adopt WP, its value has diminished vastly.

Hence my comment.

A smartphone is just more than its hardware,software is the other half of the equation common sense dictates that, who let these geniuses bashing WP in the room.

Use one you'll find out, ask yourself why Android and iOS has mimicked its flat UI.

Yeah you've used Android and its crap. I've also had the same experience with Android. You're not alone. ;)

No one should bother explaining what's amazing about WP to a ignorant troll like you.

That happened 4 years ago. How is that in any way relevant on a review of the Lumia Icon?

What flat UI? Ive been using Android for 4 years and it's been the same. They have just been releasing more updates and making it smoother.

It BEGAN around 4 years ago and is continuing.

"How is that in any way relevant on a review of the Lumia Icon?"
Lumia Icon is Nokia's phone.

"Ive been using Android for 4 years and it's been the same"
You just said it yourself on how much Android has changed since ICS. And yet you trolls call it "the most advanced OS in the World"

I guess that's why more and more people are jumping on Android's bandwagon. Because it sucks, right? And WP is losing market shares because it's amazing. Keep on deluding yourself. That's what WP fanboys do best!

"And WP is losing market shares because it's amazing."

Funny how WP was the fastest growing OS and yet you idiots still think that you can spin your lies on here!

The funniest thing is if WP sucks so much WTF are you doing here????

And I thought apple's fanboys are bad you idiots take the cake!
