Nokia Lumia 928 Review

 

Nokia Lumia 928 Review | We take a look at the Nokia Lumia 928, which is a slightly improved version of the Lumia 920, available on Verizon.

Still – if you’re a fan of Windows Phone 8 and want the absolute best device on Verizon, then you shouldn’t hesitate to pick up the Lumia 928 as it improves an already great smartphone experience to the point where we can easily consider it better than...

Nokia Lumia 928 review: Guiding light

 

Nokia Lumia 928 for Verizon Wireless is the carrier's long awaited, exclusive Windows Phone 8 flagship. The LTE smartphone was part of the rumor mill for quite some time - the first reports of a high-end Nokia smartphone for the Big Red emerged right...

Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support ; Dual-band CDMA support ; Penta-band 3G with 42 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA support ; 4.5" PureMotionHD+ AMOLED display with a resolution of 1280 x 768 pixels; Gorilla Glass 2 ; 8 megapixel autofocus camera with...

Windows Phone app catalog falls short of Android and iOS ; No microSD card ; No system-wide file manager ; No lockscreen shortcuts ; Too large a footprint for a device with a 4.5" display ; Non user-replaceable battery

The Nokia Lumia 928 really is a memorable character. Thanks to its top-end spec sheet (by Windows Phone 8 standards), headed by the hugely capable camera with xenon flash, the handset outshines every competitor, which runs Microsoft's mobile OS.

It's difficult to start a Nokia review without noting what an uphill battle the company faces. Once the undisputed king of all things mobile, Nokia has been on a steady fall from grace since the iPhone came out. To stop the bleeding and begin building...

Vivid AMOLED screen ; Great exclusive apps ; Good battery life ; Solid rear camera

Windows Phone lacks certain apps ; Windows Phone still has some quirks ; No microSD card support ; Battery is not removable

The Lumia 928 is one of the best Windows Phones. Though it’s hampered by Microsoft’s smaller app ecosystem, at $100, it’s a great buy if you use Verizon.

Now that Verizon has its own Nokia hero smartphone working with Windows Phone 8, it's high time the platform takes off, isn't it? At the moment, the Nokia Lumia 928 is one of the nicer Windows Phone 8 devices on the market, and if it weren't for the...

The Nokia Lumia 928 is easily Verizon’s finest Windows Phone 8 device, and with its advanced camera abilities, it may well be the nicest Windows Phone 8 device in the USA as well. Until another Windows Phone 8 device comes along with a metal body, on...

Nokia Lumia 928 (Verizon Wireless)

 

The Lumia 928 is the best Windows phone yet, but it isn't Verizon's best phone overall.

Very good low-light camera performance. Excellent call quality. Bright flash

Big and bulky. Fewer apps than Android and iOS

If at first you don't succeed… Well, that might be a little misleading. Nokia's Lumia 920 for AT&T has been modestly successful as far as Windows phones are concerned. But Nokia is trying again with the $99.99 Lumia 928 for Verizon Wireless. It's...

The Nokia Lumia 928 keeps the best aspects of the Lumia 920 and adds a sleeker design, better audio and compelling camera apps.

Slick updated design; Excellent camera with complementary apps; Stunning AMOLED display; Very good audio quality; Integrated wireless charging

Relatively heavy; Clumsy NFC sharing; Windows Phone 8 still missing key apps

Click to EnlargeThe Lumia 928 is a solid refresh of the Lumia 920 and a compelling Windows Phone option for Verizon shoppers who have been waiting to get their hands on Nokia's PureView camera. While still on the heavy side, the updated design makes...

Nokia Lumia 928 (Verizon Wireless)

 

For everyone who thought that Nokia's Lumia phones are too heavy and thick comes the start of an antidote: Verizon's notably slimmer Nokia Lumia 928, which sells for a decidedly wallet-friendly $99.99.

Nokia's Lumia 928 introduces a slimmer body and straight, grippable sides. Low light camera performance is top-notch.

Verizon's typically blazing speeds stumbled on the Lumia 928, and call quality sounded harsher than Nokia's usual standard. Those looking for Nokia's bright statement hues won't find them here.

Windows Phone fans on Verizon should buy the $100 Nokia Lumia 928 for its strong feature set, but watch out for slower-than-usual data speeds.

If a mobile operating system can go through a mid-life crisis, Windows Phone 8 might be there: Devices have been on the market since late last year, there's no major revision in sight (yet), and OEMs — mainly Nokia — are now at the point where they're...

Xenon flash offers slightly more low-light flexibility ; Good outdoor viewability for an AMOLED display

Terrible call quality ; Uninspired design ; Limited color selection

The right phone, tweaked in the wrong ways, at the wrong time

Nokia Lumia 928 Review

 

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...

100 on-contract price ; Slightly thinner & lighter design ; Balanced camera quality ; Nokia specific enhancements

No boost in the specs department compared to the old Lumia 920 ; Long focus adjustment with video recording

Somehow in the back of our minds, we can’t help but think about why it took so long for the Lumia 928 to arrive – even more when it’s essentially a remodeled Lumia 920, which AT&T customers have been presented with since the fall of 2012. Granted, it’s...

Over the past few weeks, I have been testing the new Nokia Lumia 928 – specifically, the camera portion of the phone. Of course, Apple's iPhone has been the most used camera in the world for several years now. Apple's ecosystem of apps is a large part...
