There’s a sad truth to the 928: It’s a Lumia 920 with a slightly worse design, a dearth of snazzy color choices, and a xenon flash that I found myself not needing very often. Verizon needed a “flagship” Windows Phone from the platform’s flagship OEM, no question —...

Nokia's newest Lumia still isn't the best Windows Phone

A reworked Lumia 920, being slightly thinner & lighter
Definitely the best Windows Phone available in the market
It's hard to deny that the 928's biggest downfall isn't the phone, though, it's the OS
I didn't come away nearly as disappointed with Lumia 928 as I thought I would. That's probably pretty high praise for someone who has no desire whatsoever to switch from Android as a phone operating system. Windows Phone 8 has received plenty of "meh" since it was released, though, and it's easy to see why. The platform as a whole has one thing really going for it right now: Nokia (and Nokia fans). The 928 is Nokia on an off day, and even then, this phone could be used to physically beat a Galaxy S4 into smithereens. It is too bulky and heavy, though. And that bezel. No - bad Nokia. I am fa...

It’s very stylish, unique, and sluggishness is barely there
While the hardware, screen, and price point may make the Lumia 928 look like a mid-range device in the Android space, it’s important to keep in mind that Windows Phone 8 is a different beast. It’s very stylish, unique, and sluggishness is barely there. Packed together, Windows Phone 8 coupled with the impressive Lumia 928 make a truly beautiful experience, despite the fact that the Windows Phone ecosystem has a long way to go before it catches up to Android and iOS.
Regardless, if you’re looking to see what the other side of the pond looks like, the Lumia 928 is a... Full review
Xenon flash and decent smartphone functionality in one package
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.
The camera's lowlight performance is expectedly impressive. Thanks to the optical image stabilization on board, the snapper can pull off impressively low shutter speeds and therefore great low-light photos without using a flash. The xenon flash itself on the other hand, adds further to the photography credentials of the Nokia Lumia 928 in da... Full review
It has a fantastic camera and engaging software that will be well received
The Nokia Lumia 928 has an inescapable link to the Lumia 920, and that's mostly a good thing. It has a fantastic camera and engaging software that will be well received. Sadly, Nokia made some unfortunate departures from the playbook that makes the great phone it should have introduced in 2012 feel like a downgrade to just a good phone being released in 2013. The passage of time has been kind to the Lumia 928's app choices, but it did not bode well for hardware decisions. The Lumia 928 is a good phone for Windows Phone fans committed to Verizon Wireless, but it's not the dream Nokia that th... Full review
It's big, heavy, slippery build, slightly dated specs
Exciting in its own right as a very capable WP8 device
The Lumia 928 is not the smartphone that’s going to catapult Windows Phone to a massive gain in US marketshare. It’s too mild, too iterative for that. But what it will do -what it’s already doing- is bringing what remains of the buzz surrounding the Lumia 920 to the nation’s largest wireless carrier. Is it a little late? Yes. But is it a good thing? Also yes.
From an industry-watching perspective, the Lumia 928 may be more exciting as a portent of things to come – it’s tempting to speculate that it’s the canary in the coal mine of the Nokia/... Full review
