Free Business Desktop Icons review

Free Business Desktop Icons has plenty of options, but none of the icons it presents are real home runs. There are too many retreads and repeats that limit your choices. While you'll probably be able to get some use out of these, you'll be downloading a lot of stuff you'll never use to do it.

Now, it may seem a little presumptuous to call your own phablet "iconic," especially when the handset in question is a midrange device like this. The Iconic certainly looks nice. In fact, it's one of the most premium-looking smartphones we've seen out of ZTE.

A solid slab of aluminum (yes, real aluminum) makes up most of the back panel, with … Read more
