Why I hate the Nokia Lumia Icon [with photos]

Nokia Lumia 929

The Nokia Lumia 929 AKA Lumia Icon is basically the power can capabilities of the Lumia 1520 (which I love) in a smaller, super-sleek shell. The 20 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, the 2.2 GHz processor, wireless charging built-in, et al, all packed within a 5-inch display smartphone. Sigh. Just have a look at that fabulously crafted sexy body.

I hate the Nokia Lumia Icon. I am hating Nokia right now. You do not create a masterpiece like this and then restrict it to only one darn network in the freaking whole world. Yes; people; you cannot get this unless you are on Verizon in the US of A. There should be capital punishment attached to this sort of thing. And Lord knows that is the only reason I hate the freaking awesome phone.


  1. The international version will be out sooner or later.
    personally I don’t like any phone that has anything to do with the big red devil (Verizon).
    they are too big and powerful as such dictate to OEMs. Putting all sort of restrictions just to maximize profit rather than please their customers.
    for instance, among all the lumias, only the Lumia 928(still for Verizon) did not get FM radio simply because Verizon want their customers to stream fm instead of the free ones. Now, the icon has no glance screen and of course no double tap to wake. Why? Verizon doesn’t want it.
    God punish them jare.

  2. Hi Tim,

    Thanks for the correction. The Nokia Conversations post that I picked this info from stated 4.5 inches. I just checked again, and that has been rectified too. Correcting this as well. Thanks again.
