Nokia Lumia 928 Review

0. phoneArena 17 May 2013, 06:22 posted on

Verizon Wireless is getting its own variant of the 920, which should no doubt put Nokia’s name near the top of the ladder within the carrier’s Windows Phone selection. At its core, the recently announced Nokia Lumia 928 might seem like a subtle variant of the version that AT&T has been selling for some time now, but there are some notable differences that should make Big Red’s customers feel proud they’re getting something new...

Just an 8? :-( I thought it would be a better phone.

I love how discrete your watermarks are PA...
Your photos are already worse than most other tech sites and you protect them like gold.

wow, read the first 20 comments and didn't see a delusional applehead talking crap...

reality is the 92x's are very badazz phones... major low light (translation practical) camera, wp8 gets the job done quickly without having to be a android techy BS kinda guy... super stable.... and has all the real apps that adults need...

I really dont give a crap that its dual core... its super responsive and doesnt burn battery like a quad core... so whats the problem?

isnt it funny when an apple or android head knocks apps on winphone when 60% of their apps are BS games for 9 year olds?

IMO the Nokia 9xx series with wp8 is really the best phone out....

Still won't get much Android users to transfer over to Windows Phone 8 with those ugly tiles. I hope Elop realize this is a complete failure by end of Q2.

Ugly is in the eyes of the beholder. Elop isn't taking Nokia to Android any time soon. They practically own the WP market, slow and steady as it may be.

In the camera part of this review, I did a keyword search on the page for 'xenon' and 'flash' and there wasn't a single mention. A highlight of this phone is its xenon flash. What kind of a phone review is this?

I expected a 9.0, and I'm sure that the reason why its lower is because of "outdated" specs. What phone arena should consider specifications based upon the operating system. Take a look at iOS, Meego, BB OS. They all don't require high end specs in order to run smoothly. Android on the other hand requires high end hardware in order to function properly. I've bought the 928 simply because of that reason. I don't need an 8 core processor, for Gods sake my laptop doesn't have an 8 core CPU and it runs well. Someone please bring out galaxy S4 and truly compare the two units in speed and quality. If the S4 wins with the OS stability, browser speed and quality, camera dept, app launching, and video buffering then I'll understand that it deserves an 8.0.

I love Nokia but these images are terrible. I have got better images from my Lumia 620 or cheaper 520.

The bad pictures are probably the result of a bad photographer (shrug)

Nokia always bringing in mobile devices that don't attract buyers. I can't see any difference on this Lumia and other Lumia's.

Maybe you just don't get it? Then go back to your iphone, or cheap end Android, bimbo the clown...

Why are you even reviewing a Windows phone? Why don't you change this site to an Apple & Samsung Blog...?

8/10 rating just for launching the phone late? Wow.

The device isn't all that bad when you get to use it for a minute. It grows on you actually. The side panel could use some work and help with actually giving you a custom speed for scrolling because it can be pretty slow when you have a lot of pins on the dashboard and devices as well.

( use a Nokia 928. it works very well . I hope that Nokia puts round corners on the next model of the 928 for Verizon, in fact although I love the live tiles technology their design is too plain jane and should have rounded corners instead of their sharp 90 degree corners which is something Human beings do not prefer to look at. Tests show that People like circles shapes and curved shapes better than 90 degree boxed shapes of squares and rectangles. for Windows smarty phones to sell better the Tiles shapes have to be more curvy or at least have rounded off corners instead of what they have today.
