Review: Nokia Lumia Icon for Verizon Wireless
The Nokia Lumia Icon is a solid Windows Phone, but it's not without a few flaws. The Icon may be made with good materials, but the design is rather dreadful. The screen is quite good, as is signal performance and battery life. The inconsistency of call quality bugs me a little bit.
The Windows Phone operating system is mostly unchanged, but additions such as App Folders really help when it comes to organizing and managing applications. The interface is quick and easy to learn, and Windows Phone's compatibility with all things Microsoft is certainly a strength.
The apps from Nokia are too numerous to recount here, but they really help Lumia devices stand out from other Windows Phones. I really like the powerful camera application, even if it had some trouble with white balance. The MixRadio music service and HERE Maps are particularly good.
