The "advanced speakers" on the Lumia 928 cannot compare with the much better sound quality of the stereo front-facing Beats speakers on the HTC One. It's all just clever marketing terms used by Nokia. Either way, Windows Phone OS still needs a few years before its app ecosystem catches up to Android and iOS.
Nice Nokia hardware + weak WP OS = No Sale!

I'm getting sick of you HTC fanboys !
ok we get it, HTC One is a very good Smartphone.
but remember that every smartphone has it's pros and cons.
we will see wich speakers are better on a comparison.

Well sorry to tell you but HTC lost it's HAAC microphones in any newer manufactured models. Have fun listening to your choppy recordings of your concerts with your premium speakers. (They're both great devices, and wp8 apps are progressing faster as a new os than android or ios have; so next year is when I'd say is when there'll be almost no difference in functionality)

ok wow this is the first windows phone to impress me, i may have to get rid of my gs3 for this! :)

the only con to this is the speaker on the back instead of on the front and windows market is still small compared to android but it looks amazing

The article link that dexter gave me says the following: "It also has powerful speakers that offer 140db audio, as compared to HTC One's 89db, which was the highest in the market till now".

Bloody hell that is a terrible article. A jet turbine engine at 100 feet is 140 decibels. Your ears hurt at 125 decibels. That is referencing the microphone . It may be a loud speaker, but it still is on the back of the phone and mono.

Finding new road is : Improve Windows Phone, increase amount of apps and games on WP store.

Nokia won't switch to Android right now, cause Windows Phone + Nokia = TRUE NOKIA MASTERPIECE!

There is no denying that Nokia is trying hard. The technology is awesome. Sadly, their operating system is so terrible. I tried it. Too flat. Too limited. A baby still. No flexibility and no eye candy. It is not versatile. And the App Store makes me cry. If this technology is applied to an Android OS, the sky will be the limit for Nokia.

15. Bluesky02 (Posts: 1439; Member since: 05 Dec 2011)


That is why there is something called Choice. If you want Eye Candy, Open OS, Flexibility there is always something called iPhone 5 or Samsung Galaxy 4

The ad forgot to mention that it is a "Revolutionary Phone" not like the fake iPhone 5 hype. You gotta agree that Nokia is the leader of Windows Phone OS. Verizon is getting something great I hope they market the hell out of it.

LOL at every marketing department other than Sammy's or apple's. Too bad others make great devices but fail to market them properly.

53. Bluesky02 (Posts: 1439; Member since: 05 Dec 2011)


Yeah sometimes Carriers have their own preference base on market research. When they know devices like iPhone and Samsung Galaxy have strong marketing position, it will be easy for them to gather attention. Whereas Nokia is still kind of new so it will require more effort in hyping meaning more ads, time, money.

Anyway, OIS on Nokia is still better than on HTC One since HTC One OIS is two axis while Nokia's OIS is three axis. :)

I would rather have 89db dual front blasting speakers than a 140db back firing speaker. I'm a Note 2 owner and appreciate what HTC did with the One. It just makes sense to have the sound directed to the user. I'm tired of the "cup hand" trick.
