Internet and Connectivity: Showing off consistency amongst Windows Phones in general, the Lumia 928 follows in suit to the others before it, since it features speedy 4G LTE connectivity combined with the flawless execution of Internet Explorer.

Frankly, it’s typical of almost every AMOLED panel we’ve scoped out in the past – such as delivering saturated colors, wide viewing angles, and surprisingly enough, decent outdoor visibility as well.

Reviews Word on the street for the Nokia Lumia 928

The AMOLED display is more color saturated and is quite bright; I suspect it will be a popular feature.

For landscape scenery shots, we’re again happy with the balanced results, since it’s sharp in tone and colorful, but if we take a closer look, we recognize that fine details appear a little speckled.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight


You know, the kind of raw picture quality we can draw from its 8.7-megapixel PureView camera, which features Carl Zeiss optics, an f2.0 lens, and optical stabilization.
by PhoneArena (May, 2013)
In addition to using the shutter key to control its focus, it also features the always handy touch focus system as well, which also seems to adjust the exposure as well.
by PhoneArena (May, 2013)
Most other cameras simply discard the info from the 4:3 sensor to make it produce a 16:9 photo and lose 25% of the resolution.
by GSM Arena (Jun, 2013)


Looking through the listing, it’s the usual crew that we find so commonplace with any other Verizon smartphone, so it includes things like My Verizon Mobile and VZ Navigator.
by PhoneArena (May, 2013)
The Verizon offering features angular design with a number of sharp edges - it is hardly the best looking Nokia Lumia to date.
by GSM Arena (Jun, 2013)
Introduction: When it came to Windows Phone from Nokia, it was pretty obvious that AT&T received the most love out of the major four wireless carriers.
by PhoneArena (May, 2013)


They are highly detailed, with nice colors and good sharpness.
by GSM Arena (Jun, 2013)
A bright red box has the bare essentials.
by GSM Arena (Jun, 2013)
The display is AMOLED rather than IPS, but it’s still viewable outdoors (courtesy of an outdoor display setting) and the LCD works with gloves.
by MobileTechReview (May, 2013)


Functionality: Well, as much as some people would like to see variation amongst the core set of organizer apps in Windows Phone 8, the consistency in the platform makes it easy to jump from one device to another.
by PhoneArena (May, 2013)
One part a free radio station service, similar to what you’d experience with Pandora, Nokia Music also provides us access to any purchased content that are bought from Microsoft’s Music Store.
by PhoneArena (May, 2013)
In fact, the arsenal of enhancements that these Nokia branded apps offer justifies succinctly how this smartphone offers more bang for the buck when it comes to merely the experience.
by PhoneArena (May, 2013)


Thanks to the absence of camera shake the videos have a quality feel that you can rarely get from a cameraphone with a similar stabilization system.
by GSM Arena (Jun, 2013)
Best of all, with video recording the benefits of the stabilization system are available all the time.
by GSM Arena (Jun, 2013)
Supporting different video codecs out of the box, like DivX, H.264, MPEG-4, and Xvid, it’s wonderful watching high-definition 1080p videos in all of their glory on the Lumia 928.
