We have talked a bit in the past about the Verizon Nokia Lumia Icon and its release into the world, only to come back now with some news regarding its impact upon users. Previous reports earlier this month were praising the Lumia Icon as being a very compelling smartphone with high – end features and some impressive tech specs that can compete with the iPhone family in many ways. However, given the fact that the Verizon Nokia Lumia Icon is basically a Windows phone (and according to statistics, a bad choice for such a great cell – phone, as Windows comes in a slow and distant third place after Android and Apple), some reviewers weren’t too happy with its operating system.
On the other hand, even more recent news show us that this Window phone proved itself to be a performing and powerful contender to the other smartphones on the market and its Windows operating system actually won the Lumia Icon some extra points. According to users, this is the best Windows phone in existence and given the phone’s features, it is strongly recommended to smartphones aficionados, especially since the price is more than affordable, being available on Verizon Wireless stores for around $200, way cheaper than the iPhone 5C for that matter.
What makes Verizon Nokia Lumia Icon so great?
No matter where you go for reviews, you will first hear about the phone’s quality camera and great photos it takes. As picture quality is concerned, it seems that the Lumia Icon manages to provide better, sharper and with truer colors photos than the iPhone 5S, the rockstar of the iPhone family (at least in sales). The Verizon Nokia Lumia Icon also comes with a 2.26GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor with 2GB RAM, but unfortunately, even if it features a 32 GB internal storage, it has no no microSD slot, which is considered to be the major drawback of otherwise a high performing and solid phone.
Even if the information might confuse you a bit, as Windows phones are not something many people would recommend, other specialists see the Verizon Nokia Lumia Icon as a perfect smartphone to meet all needs (especially the ones including photography and photo related apps), while it indeed moves a bit slower than the iPhone. However, the tech – savvy will have to keep an eye on the Lumia Icon, as who knows how it is going to influence overall smartphone sales in the months to come?
