I got my Icon nearly a year ago, and I'm with you. It's most certainly the best phone I've ever had. It has impressive horsepower under the hood with an amazing camera. I'm still being told by others how impressive its call quality is. I will admit however that I am a bit impatient and downloaded the Developers Preview of Windows Phone 8.1, which has not disappointed at all. I love Cortana and the action bar, and everything runs just as smooth if not smoother. I hope we get Denim soon, because it just stands to get that much sweeter from here!
