    I love Windows Phone. Keyboard and word complete are significantly better than Iphone. Apps like Nest, Garmin connect, My fitness pal don't work on this phone. Microsoft needs to ensure the top Apps all work even if they have to design them at Microsoft. Microsoft's future is riding on Windows phone for me. If they drop support for Windows phone, I'm done with Microsoft even on PC and will switch completely over to Apple for everything.

  • Best phone I've ever used

    Overall Rating
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    I have used the iPhone, I've used several different Androids and none of them compare to my Lumia 822, let alone the Lumia Icon (929)! 20 MP camera, Full HD videos, Surround Sound Level Recording. Loaded with Microsoft apps that make working in a Windows powered business environment seamless. OneNote, Office, Outlook, VPN and so much more. Productive and lots of fun. So if you are looking for a phone that is more then a toy that can call people. Look no further then Window Phone!

  • Issues with Updating

    Overall Rating
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    Now the phone itself is great. But when it comes to updating, the phone is awful. There was a recent release for an update that fixed the boot loop after updating the software. IRONICALLY My Icon is stuck in a boot loop for this update. So this is the second phone of the Icon I have had this happen to and am about fed up with the lack of fixes for this phone alone. Camera is great, runs great when it works but updating is like playing a game of Russian Roulette except with 5 bullets and one open slot. Hoping to god you get that open spot but most of the time you don't. Getting ready to switch back to Android.

    I take this phone with me when I travel, and always get great photos from it. I love the One Drive feature of windows that allows me to share Word and Excel documents between my laptop, tablet, and Lumia Icon phone. This was my first smartphone and I'm not the most technical person, but I never had the struggle to learn this device like some have reported with Android phones. Available apps are still somewhat limited for Windows phones, but I'm not that into apps so it's not a problem! It's a sturdy, well built phone.

    Bluetooth option to turn off or on during call would turn off during calls in and out. Without touching that option button.

    Moved to Icon from iphone4s a year ago. I will always have a WP. I'm a power user so windows is seamless between work and personal. The only app that wasn't available was my credit union. Any app deficit will dwindle further with release of Win10. Perfect screen size and resolution. Cortana is much more useful than I could have imagined, as far as I was concerned it was a gimmick.......I was dead wrong! If you haven't "Googled" down the "Apple" juice yet give this phone a shot and you might find yourself pleasantly surprised.

  • LOVE my Lumia!!

    Overall Rating
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    Absolutely love this phone! Perfect for a working mom. Love the compatibility with my Windows 8.1 laptop. Provides access to all Outlook contacts from both personal and professional accounts from a single tile (People). Direct access to all 8 of my family's email accounts (plus work and non-profit groups# pinned to the start screen. Easy to customize what alerts you want to see on lock screen and notification area. Displays appointments from calendars for home, school, & work - perfectly color coded in a single view - all while maintaining separate accounts. Flexibility in notifications is fabulous! The Microsoft Office tools make it easy to open Word docs, spreadsheets, or Powerpoint files to reference in a meeting. The Windows 8.1 update has neat features like transparent tiles, Cortana assistant, and sleep times #with breakthroughs for selected people to call if urgent). The 20MP camera takes great video & photos, too. Wish it had a microSD slot, but otherwise, this phone is perfect for everything I need to do on a portable device. I have never loved a product enough to write a review before, but this phone is it!!!

  • Best Nokia for Verizon

    Overall Rating
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    When I got this phone I was very nervous because I was a Android user. I learned everything on the phone very quickly thanks to Microsoft simple UI. I am also a Xbox user so I can use the Xbox app and earn more achievements when I'm on the go. The only really flaw I have about this phone is that Verizon doesn't really care about Windows Phone in general.

    I like my Icon. But give me something to love. Let's take a real big step Microsoft. It's truly possible and success will follow. 1. Give us a battery. Not a little bigger battery, a lot bigger battery. Something we'd be almost tempted to jump a car with, 3000-3200mAh. Don't mess around, give us a big battery. 2. Love the great cameras. Keep them coming and improving them. 3. Make Chrome available. It's loved my so many, make it available on my Windows phone. It will be a selling feature. 4. Make FaceTime available. A friend recently moved from his Windows phone to iPhone in order to FaceTime with his family. Give his family and those like them a reason to do the reverse. 5. The best travel app is BlackBerry Travel (WorldMate) with "Trip Catch". The full version of WorldMate isn't even available on Windows 8.1 and Trip Catch is only available in the BlackBerry Travel branded release. Get the enhanced WorldMate and get them to add Trip Catch and you will have the best there is. Especially if they incorporate live tiles. 6. A 5" screen is fine and fits almost comfortably in my shirt pocket. Release a larger one if you want the pocket video customers but don't abandon the shirt pocket business users. 7. Add a programmable message light. Not a lighthouse beacon but a small message light that one can see from the top, front and back of the device. And allow it to be disabled by time, message source and other conditions. 8. Put some memory in it. Like the battery, take a big step here. Physically make it one size fits all for economy of scale. Enable different configurations with a software key so a user can start small and add more when needed. 9. Integrate it more closely with the Windows desktop and Server. Nothing should have a better Integration with the world's leading OS than a Windows phone. And tout that integration, a lot! 10. Add Google Nav or give us better Bing Maps. Bing has the wrong name on the street where I live in spite of my following the process for getting it corrected. That's just the most annoying error among many that I encounter. Either improve the native maps or incorporate better ones. That's it, except for keep the apps coming. Thanks for a really good phone. I look forward to a really great one.

    It is a great phone, feels great in your hand, has a nice weight, feels very sturdy although I would recommend a case. The camera and video are out of this world, I am not sure why iPhone 6 users brag about their camera...my fiancé has the decked out version of the iPhone 6 and it is NO CONTEST, it is not even in the same league as the Icon. The phone is very fast, has a ton of space and features and SUPPORTS WINDOWS 10 for Phones. Love it!

    Zoom>>>> This baby is fast and it feels tight. I like the lack of bloatware and the Windows Store Apps don't require full access to my every move. Whether personal or business, this device will get you where you're going in a hurry!! It smoked my G4 in side by side tests, over and over again. Made me switch out of the Samsung Slow Lane into the Fast Moving Microsoft Lane.

    It simplifies my life by automatically synching with my account through OneDrive. It seems every bit as easy to use as an iPhone. I especially appreciate having access to Office applications.

    So happy with my Lumia Icon, I'd die without it. Cortana has made my life so much easier... She like a personal assistant. I love the quality of the camera and the features that make some of the most ordinary pictures into a work of art. I can handle my business like no other on this phone but I mostly have this for personal use.
