Different design, Xenon flash
Good news is there are some differences. They start from the design - the Lumia 928 is virtually the same size with a 4.5-inch 1280 x 768-pixel OLED display, but the device is more blocky, rectangular, without the sharp edges of the Lumia 920. Still, the back retains the typical Nokia pillowy convex shape.
When the Lumia 920 launched on AT&T six months ago it was widely perceived to be terribly bulky. It wasn’t a phablet, but it weighed more than some phablets. Luckily, the Lumia 928 is noticeably lighter at 5.7 ounces against the 6.53oz on the 920. The Verizon device is slightly thicker though, slightly taller and narrower as well.
The camera itself hasn’t changed much - it’s an 8.7-megapixel backside-illuminated module with a Carl Zeiss lens, but there is one key difference. The Lumia 928 features Xenon flash, a much more powerful and better balanced solution than LED flash on the Lumia 920.
Processor and internals haven’t changed
Just like the Lumia 920, in terms of sound, the Lumia 928 features three high-performance HAAC microphones recording sound distortion-free at levels of up to 140db. Verizon’s Windows Phone 8 newcomer also supports wireless charging out of the box, you’d just need to buy that charging plate.
Nothing hasn’t changed in the hardware either. The Lumia 928 has the same 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 with 1GB of RAM and Adreno 225 graphics. The battery is also of the same 2000mAh size.
If we had to sum it up, we’d say that the Lumia 928 is a very modest upgrade over the Lumia 920. Its biggest advantage it the Xenon flash and the Verizon logo, otherwise it’s the same old device Nokia introduced six months ago. Will that be enough appeal against the much better specced Androids of today? Nokia has got a low $100 price tag to try and convince you it is, but it’s up to you to decide.
