Nokia Lumia Icon review: a big step forward for Windows Phone

The Lumia Icon is the solid high-end Windows Phone that we've wanted for a long time. It has an amazing display, great performance and solid imaging capability, but its exclusivity to Verizon will severely limit its appeal.

Pros
  • Amazing 1080p display
  • Excellent performance
  • Good battery life
  • Fantastic imaging experience
  • Great audio quality
Cons
  • Uninspired design
  • Verizon-only
  • No global LTE roaming
