The nokia lumia 928 has a spec list very similar to the nokia lumia 920 and 925. My complaint is on the battery life this phone struggles to last 8am to 6pm worth of life every day which is not acceptable. I dropped this twice in just 1 week and both of those times it emerged fine with just a few scuffs and scratches. These were onto concrete and tiles respectively. I love the simplicity of use and amount of features windows phone 8 has to offer though.

It's like "Acer Aspire could give you more feature, more connectivity, better hardware for the same price" but they just died only after 1 year.
Pureview Camera is interesting and I wonder if they apply Graphene material in their case as it would make nokia build quality unbeatable.
spartanlegends, 13 Jun 2013YES VERY True but one major reason they dont put better hardware in it because Microsoft has r... moreThe samsung ativ odessy S has the same hardware as well. And samsung is known for putting high end hardware in there devices. Like i said in my previous posts you will be disappointed if you choose a phone solely on the hardware.
andrew, 13 Jun 2013your opinion is right, but Nokia charge too much for old hardware and Nokia have a habit that ... moreYES VERY True but one major reason they dont put better hardware in it because Microsoft has restrictions. You have to also remember that in some cases it keeps cost rdown.I am not sure how much the camera costs on nokia phones. So i cant tell you if its to keep costs down. But microsoft puts alot of hardware restrictions on all the OEM for windows phone on the htc 8x it has same processor and same ram as the lumia 928, its not nokia thats the problem. Also windows phone 8 dosent support more than 2 processors yet until the new service pack windows 8.1 is released this year.
spartanlegends, 12 Jun 2013Its not about the specs its how you use which makes the big difference. You can have the faste... moreyour opinion is right, but Nokia charge too much for old hardware and Nokia have a habit that "you cant get all the features of their phone on a single and latest phone (it sucks). Unlike iphone and samsung, if you get their latest flagship, you get all of the latest features a phone can get. In terms of quality, you cant say nokia has the best quality of phone out there. Im interested on nokia phone specially their camera, but considering other specs, i'll be spending too much for a hardware 2 years old for a price of latest hardware specs i can get. It all goes down to price.
Mr. Bola, 10 Jun 2013The best parameter to use in choosing. phone is d technical specification, all other things be... moreIts not about the specs its how you use which makes the big difference. You can have the fastest processor and the most amount of RAM without an operating system it is useless just a bunch of scraps. It greatly depends on your personal needs and uses of the devices which truly gives you the best experience even if you have better hardware without the OS and apps that use the hardware and give user feedback there is no point in having it. Like i said before it useless. Think of an empty box(consider this the hardware). If you fill it with big balls you only have very few balls and it leaves gaps large gaps which the round shape of the balls can not fill. Now fill that box with many small balls because of the smaller area of the balls you can fit alot more in there and because the ration of volume to circumference of the balls are smaller it leaves smaller gaps. You can think of the gaps between the balls as the amount of the hardware that you dont have access to. Each ball represents a peace of functionality of an operating system. in the scenario of large balls in the box you would have very little functionality(the balls) and alot of the hardware you can not used/Wasted(the gaps), And with the small balls where you add more functionality you better use the hardware because there is more functionality(balls) and less wasted hardware(Gaps).
Efficiency is key to actually getting use out of the hardware.
If you are picking a phone by its specs then most of the time you will be disappointed because you wont have full use of all that hardware anyway.
And YES it does apply to the camera as well Nokia has very good software to use the camera sensor so in effect they can use less pixel density and yield better or equal to camera sensors with higher pixel density THEY ACTUALLY USE THE HARDWARE BETTER.
IT DEPENDS ON YOUR NEEDS AND HOW YOU USE IT.
The 928 is built well enough that you get a great experience with windows phone 8. IT ALSO USES THE BATTERY FASTER IF YOU HAVE FASTER AND STRONGER HARDWARE.
This is my explanation of facts that occur everywhere in computer science you can choose to take it or leave it. please dont bash just add if you have something constructive to say!!!
Dinesh, 09 Jun 2013LOL, ROOTING IOS????...HAHA...THAT IS THE DUMBEST THING IVE HEARD TODAY...there is no such thi... moreYou have no idea of my backround and i am not showing off i wasnt trying to impress anyone and you can down me all you want, what i know is what i know saying something thats puts me down is showing that you felt vulnerable or think you know it all.
You can call it what ever you want rooting,jailbreaking just because they made a fancy name for it doesnt mean its a different entity it is still gaining access to features to which was not in the intended use.You are gaining more administrative rights by jail breaking it so it is rooting the device. Not to the same level of android because they apple removed alot of the functionality from its original linux kernel that it was based on. While android is more closely based on Linux than ios is now, thats why you have more control because you can use alot of the linux functionality still.
DON'T GO INTO REVIEWS FOR PHONES IF YOUR JUST GOING TO
BASH THE DEVICE OR THE PEOPLE COMENTING.I WASNT HARMING ANYONE AND WASNT TRYING TO SHOW OFF I HAVE NOTHING TO PROVE.
I've had this phone for one week and it is a huge improvement from the HTC 7 Trophy, Verizon's only WP7 phone.
The 928's performance compared to the Trophy is astounding. The Trophy was a first generation Windows Phone and it has trouble running some of the newer apps (apps started to show lag) and the Verizon Trophy never got the 7.8 update like the european version got. Nokia's Lumia 928 is snappy. Videos don't have lag issues. Switching apps is nearly instant.
The Trophy only had a single core processor and going from that to a dual core makes a difference.
The 928 has support for LTE AWS (think 4G+ - 15mb/s) while the Trophy only had support for EVDO (3G - 300? kb/s).
Cell reception is about the same.
Battery life - idk yet.
Call quality - superb, shocks you sometimes how great it sounds.
The screen is great in daylight, but worries me in low light. I see bubbles under the screen and there is a whiter colored blob under the start button thats visible only when the button is lit. (That makes it very difficult to return. I have seen others with the same issue, so I'm not the only one.)
The phone physically is a good size and weight for me (I have large hands), but the corners bother me. The are too square, but the only case verizon has made it easier to cope with.
Besides that. This phone is a great device that I will keep even after its time to upgrade. Its good as a phone and it operates likewise without cell capabilities.
Rating - 8/10
Mr. Bola, 10 Jun 2013The best parameter to use in choosing. phone is d technical specification, all other things be... moreNokia Lumia 928 is best and good handset,,,,,,this feture is verry great 4s handset i love you ,,,,
The best parameter to use in choosing. phone is d technical specification, all other things being equal and barring unforseen circumstances.
The Samsung S4 is obviuosly better, it has larger screen 5 inches as against 4.5 of the Lumia 928, it has a better camera of 13mp compared with 8mp of d Lumia, d processor speed is higher 1.5 ghz as against the 1.2.ghz of d lumia, this is just a few of d parameters but on overall rating it beats d Lumia 928 hands down
gsm arena people / workers why most of your rewies are names of song and band ... guiding light from muse, army of two like the band when words collide powerman 5000 :) nice taste of music
From My Opinion S4 in Better.....But Nokia Lumia 928 is Also Good......Buy S4...It Will Be a Better Choice
spartanlegends, 08 Jun 2013Thank you for the thorough explanation I Feel that everything you said is true. The only thing... moreLOL, ROOTING IOS????...HAHA...THAT IS THE DUMBEST THING IVE HEARD TODAY...there is no such thing as rooting iOS...its called JAILBREAKING...because unlike android...jailbreaking is like bending the rules...while on android...it is more like breaking the rules...jailbreaking doesnt really remove a lot of restrictions...the only real advantage after jailbreaking is installing apps from outside of the app store(and there by you can install unlicenced and untested apps developed by unlicenced app devs)... :-P... on android the feature is available even without rooting... rooting and android lets you do anything with your phone...not jsut customization...for example my S3 gave me a battery back up of around 2 days before i rooted...now after rooting and unlocking the bootloader and then flashing with the MIUI rom, i get a backup of around 3 to 4 days under normal usage...windows dumb user!!!...speaking as though you know everything...go home you are just trying show offf :-P...
