"Refines the already solid 920"4.5 starson by thisistheslam
Pros: Best low light camera in the industry, 3-mic audio capture for up to 140 db of distortion-free sound, AMOLED with Clear Black display (OMG!), Xenon flash added, slimmer and lighter body over 920, comes unlocked!
Cons: Would like to see a 1080p display on a Lumia, Verizon branding is a phone tattoo you must live with, battery is an area Nokia can try to push further in future handsets
Summary: Wow. The 928 blows me away. It's basically a 920 v2 with subtle improvements in a lot of key areas. Verizon is lucky to have this handset, and theirs comes unlocked out of the box for region-free use, something AT&T didn't offer on their 920 (and still technically don't if you're not a subscriber). The biggest complaints against the 920 were its size and weight. While I didn't agree with those detractors, the 928 does a lot to quell those complaints and will likely invite many Verizon subscribers to try a new WP8 device. I wish this would have been available earlier, but better late than never. Before I owned a WP device, I was on Android and really enjoyed the simpler and more streamlined interface that WP pushed. There's a lot of growth to come for this platform, which makes me excited since I already really enjoy it. If you're in the hunt for a WP8 device to try and are on Verizon or are considering Verizon, this is a much better option than the so-so Lumia 822 or the HTC 8X. Nokia does a great job supporting their users with cool apps and regular updates. If you need an unlocked phone, this is a good deal too!
