Symbol font icon vs image icon
Symbol fonts turn the blocky raster icon images into smooth vector images through HTML. Vectors provide more facilities than the rasterized images. Rasterized images cannot scale up their size when those are seen from a high-resolution display. On the other hand, the vector images don’t have such problems as they can be scaled up in any displays and the size of the images will be the same in any display.
