Disclaimer: I was sent the Nokia Lumia Icon to review from Verizon. All opinions are 100% my own.
Have you ever wanted to take pictures like a PRO with your smartphone? Sure there are accessories available that you can clip on to your phone to get a great photo, but what if you didn’t want the extra products? Enter Verizon’s Nokia Lumia Icon. It’s a windows operating phone that is unlike any other smartphone on the market. Basically, all of your favorite apps, social networks or photos can be displayed on your front screen. That means no more scrolling through your phone for a specific app or widget. You can also re-arrange the “pins” any way you like.
With the Nokia Lumia Icon, you’ll want to set up your microsoft account and then you’ll be able to utilize the Windows Store, X-Box Live (if you use it), Outlook and more.
Now I’m not much of a gamer, so my first order of business was testing out the different camera functions. The Nokia Lumia Icon has so many different features for photos that can definitely take your pictures to the next level. The phone has the “Creative Studio” and “Nokia Cinemagraph” programs which feature the options of: focus and blur, color pop, making a collage, and of course different filters according to your preference. You’ll also be able to animate parts of pictures and choose different camera lenses to shoot a picture.
Here are a few #unfiltered shots I took in New York City with the Lumia Icon.
1.) 5″ Display
2.) 2GHz quad-core processor with 2GB RAM and 32GB internal memory
3.) High speed over the Verizon 4G LTE network
4.) Nokia Mix Radio to listen to your favorite tunes
5.) 4 High Performance microphones
Although I’ve raved about its photo capabilities, the Lumia Icon is also great with capturing amazing HD videos. I also liked that the phone was lightweight with a very sleek and vibrant display with a good battery life. The Lumia Icon has TONS more to offer, but these are just a few of my favorite features.
