Great phone to have
bwhiting has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
I have just got the device as an upgrade for a 2nd line on my account through Verizon and the device is great. It is very responsive to the touch but the texting is sometimes a hassle when you have big hands. I sometimes have problem with texting people and accidently hitting the back button but I am learning to get used to it. The W8 interface is great and also a nice use for this phone because it actually works well for the design and don't cause any problems with the battery like my android to overheat. I like the camera for the device as well because it also is great, nice quality. The batter for this phone is my main selling point along with the UI speed and camera because I can go all day and a half of the next with one charge on battery saver mode.

Verizon may have been late to the game, but they still have an amazing Windows Phone

I was so excited when the 920 came out, but very disappointed to watch AT&T snag the rights to it for the United States. Then the 928 and 925 were released and I fell in love with the 928 absolutely my favorite phone I have owned. Before the Lumia I had a Galaxy Nexus which Verizon screwed up, and then before that the original Droid. So WP8 was a big step for me to leave android as I had watched it grow up from 2.0 to 4.2.2 but a step I have not regretted yet so far.

This is the best phone I have ever owned.
huskerfan85 has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
When I bought this phone last year I thought it was a very well built phone. I loved how great it runs and how easy it is to navigate the phone. Now I came from having nothing but galaxy phones. So I was spoiled with the apps. I wanted to make a change due to how I was being treated with straight talk. I went with verizon after being away from them. Well I am not dissappointed with this phone at all. The screen is so clear and the camera is just mind blowing clear. Now the only down fall is the apps. That's not so much the phones fault but more due to microsoft and not being as developed and deep like google and android are. I have to add since I got the Denim update this phone is freaking awesome. Move over Siri, Cortana is taking over! Cortana can remind you about appointments and if your close to say the grocery store she will remind you to pick up milk. Like I said the only downfall is the apps. There are some good ones but not very many have come over to windows and I feel like if they would let them have the chance to it would make these phones unstoppable.

Nokia Lumia 928 - Fantastic Windows Phone
Longstone has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review
I've owned and used various iPhones and Android devices. The Nokia Lumia 928 is without question the best one I've ever owned. From usability, size, speed and just fun. You heard right, the phone is just fun to be on. The device is made so much better with Windows Phone 8.1 features. Everything from the information hub to cortana and most importantly (to me) the Word Flow keyboard (Microsofts much improved version of Androids beloved Swype), all the features I didn't realize I missed from other phones.
Groups have been an amazing way for me to keep in touch with friends and family. Grouping family into a single Family Room has been extremely convenient. I find myself using groups much more than I ever thought I would. The wife adds items to the group calendar so I know when the kids have games, doctors appointments, and I add items to our grocery list we have in our group notes as I find we need stuff. It's an extremely convenient feature that I don't think many know about or realize how great it really can be.
With Windows Phone 8.1 OS, the Nokia Lumia 928 makes my list of all-time phones.

Going from 8X to 928. Nokia wins.
mpulliam123 has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
I went from the HTC 8X to the Nokia Lumia 928 and I haven't looked back. This phone is everything that the 8X wasn't. It has a fantastic camera, vivid screen, incredible battery life, and fantastic call quality. It's 4G and wifi make it easy to connect anywhere you are and speed through tasks. I have never used and loved a phone as much as this one. The only issue I have with it is that the chrome "Carl Zeiss" camera piece gets finger prints very easy. But thats fixed with a easy wiping off. Haha. Also I saw that one person said no expandable memory was a con, but it comes with 24GB of usable space and I feel like that is very, very reasonable for a phone that is free right now on Verizon. And you may see that I have only had it for under 3 months but if you get one thats all the time you'll need too.

Best Phone Verizon Has Ever Carried
hopmedic has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
No single phone will ever be THE phone that will meet everyone's needs. But this is the best phone that Verizon has ever carried. Ever. You don't have the security holes that Android is infamous for. You have features that iPhone can't touch (Camera). Optical image stabilization makes for great low-light photos. The UI is slick and doesn't get bogged down like Android. You don't need to manage the apps in the background, like Android - the OS does it for you. The phone is just awesome.

Face it...iPhone, Android and Windows all have great phones. There is no right answer
rformanaz has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
Its like arguing about cars these days. Each have great phones and each have pro's and con's. I've used them all and continue to prefer windows due to my needs. I like the interface, the movement and love the integration with xbox, and windows 8 PC's. I know everyone talks about the camera but it really is amazing. My wife has the iPhone 5 and I take the same picture with both and there is not comparison. If you are a windows person you should have no second thoughts about this phone.
