If you long to try something new and a bit unique when it comes to cell phones, you might be thinking about picking up the latest Icon, a Nokia Windows Phone. It’s certainly enticing if you are tired of using Google’s Android or Apple’s iOS. But according to The New York Times, you might come to regret buying this beauty of a phone.

If you just want to text, call, or take great pictures, you might be satisfied with the Icon.
