Nokia Lumia Icon unboxing and first impressions [Video]

We said we were getting the Nokia Lumia Icon today, and indeed it showed up just a little while later. You can pick up the Lumia Icon starting today from Verizon and Microsoft. Usually we don’t do unboxing videos, but today we had to make an exception. Nokia and Verizon sent us a really cool package that we just had to share.

The Lumia Icon came in, dare we say, anĀ iconic aluminum case with the Nokia logo etched in the top. Inside the case was the Lumia Icon, of course, but also some nice goodies from Nokia. They included the DC-19 universal portable charger, Fatboy wireless charging pillow, and some QR codes for suggested apps. All of this was packed up nicely along with the Lumia Icon itself.

Our first impressions of the phone are off the charts. We were worried it would feel sharp in the hand with the flat sides and corners, but so far we haven’t noticed that at all. The size is really wonderful. It’s not much larger than the Lumia 925, but yet the screen is bigger and better. Speaking of the screen, it is very beautiful. We said it in the Lumia 1520 review, and we will say it again: Windows Phone looks amazing in 1080p.

We’ll have much more on the Lumia Icon in the next few days. Keep an eye out for our review to go up some time next week. In the meantime be sure to ask us any questions you have about the Icon!
