    Nice, solid feel.
    Screen size perfect.
    Overall responsiveness. Smooth. Was noticeable even coming from my 928.

    Ok, I just got mine, but I will input my 2 cents:

    1) Screen is beautiful
    2) 32gb of internal storage standard
    3) Build quality is nice and sturdy feeling

    ** And as a close 4th, I am actually loving the battery life so far. Screen-on burns through it, but standby is fantastic! - the first 24 hours were even better than my Lumia 925 on AT&T.

    I would also like to add:

    1. easy setup (email was a breeze and I have both a hotmail and gmail account. My contacts magically appeared after logging in that first time with my Microsoft account)
    2. The "three across" start screen (now I don't have to have a start screen that goes on forever)
    3. The Windows OS. Smooth as silk, fast, and the graphic UI is just plain elegant and adult looking. Doesn't have the arcade game look of Android and iOS.

    That's my two cents...or should that be three cents?

    I've had mine 2 1/2 months now.

    1. The 20MP camera is a jewel. I never have to wonder if I should take my camera. I now have one incredible camera with me all the time!
    2. The videos this thing takes is even better than the examples that I researched online.
    3. The feel, look and operation of the Icon continue to amaze.

    1. It is not an android or an iPhone. I love this operating system.

    2. I like the fact that it syncs with my Xbox videos and my Xbox Music (I've had an MS music account since it was Zune) now when my husband rents a movie on his Xbox I tell him to login with my account and I can watch it later on my phone or my surface.

    3, I actually like the MS apps more then any app I had on my Droid phone. I think the apps that MS produces are more polished and more professional then apps found on the Droid (I have not tried iPhone apps) But I love MS's Weather, Finance, News, Email, Music & Video and of course x-box one smart glass. Not to mention the x-box games are pretty cool to. These app's are really all I need and as I said are nicer and more functional then anything found on the Droid. And they also have the same look and feel as the rest of the operating system which is a plus. I know the apps and app store get a bunch of negative feed back, but for me they work and work well.

    I know you didn't ask for a fourth, but I have to also say the keyboard just works better then what I had on my Droid. I all but stopped texting or pretty much using my Droid because the keyboard just wasn't cutting it. Since I've gotten my Icon, I am once again texting and replying to emails from my phone. And I hear it will only get better once 8.1 and the new swype like keyboard is here.

    Agree completely. This sums up what I enjoy about the Icon and what led me to purchase it.

    1. MRLevel3 (weather application, one of the best-coded mobile applications I've ever seen)
    2. MS Office integration (including OneNote + OneDrive)
    3. The best low light photos I've ever taken on smartphone - it's not even close

    I've received text messages back from people that I send pictures to that call out the amazing quality of the photos (instead of the cool/neat stuff in the photos)

    This phone was already in another league compared to anything else out there for anyone in the business world.

    That included me, and I haven't looked back to any other mobile OS.

    Then, I discovered Mike Gibson (who created one of the most important weather/radar applications for Windows) released a native Windows Phone app...

    Work life... Check
    Personal-life/Hobby... Check

    Awesome device.
