    Current Phone Model:
    Nokia Lumia Icon

    I really want to get this handset. The support MSFT and Nokia have given the Lumia 928 (current phone) has been stellar. When major updates hit Verizon is only a few weeks behind at the most, which is something I'm not used to coming from Android. Not to mention Nokia is constantly pumping out updates to their handsets. For those of you familiar with Android (like just about everyone reading this) it's exactly like owning a Nexus. I'm really digging the hardware and styling on the Icon, so I may have to flip and pay full retail on this one :(

    The packaging (which consumers won't get) in the review units they sent out is pretty sweet.

    @cereal killer, I'm really looking at switching from Android and picking this phone up. So I have a question for you, how hard was it to make the switch? Is the lack of apps that big of a deal? Really digging the look of this phone and also looking forward to having a reliable camera on a phone!
