Featuring advanced photo technology that can capture, edit, and share epic moments better than ever before, the 4G LTE-enabled Nokia Lumia 928 from Verizon Wireless enables you to snap bright, blur-free photos and videos -- even in low light conditions such as indoors or at night. Powered by the Windows Phone 8 operating system, the stunning Lumia 928 feels sleek, solid and fits perfectly in your hand. And the 4.5-inch PureMotion HD+ OLED display delivers crystal clear bright content with great outdoor visibility and a fast, responsive touchscreen.

Better Imaging

Great looking images come easily when snapping them with the Lumia 928's rear 8.7-megapixel PureView camera, which features a high-quality, wide angle Carl Zeiss lens and optical image stabilization (OIS). Using a floating lens, the Lumia 928 OIS feature compensates for and reduces movement in both videos and photos while also ensuring your photos look incredibly clear even in low-light situations. A powerful Xenon flash supplies even more light when you need it.

The camera comes with several features to make capturing photos a breeze. Smart Shoot snaps five frames for each picture, enabling you to pick the best faces from each frame. You'll then be able to create a great picture or remove any people or objects to get the best picture. Panorama automatically stitches your pictures together and enables you to share directly to Facebook or Twitter. Cinemagraph ads movement to your still images by blending photo and movie-like animation to bring your pictures to life.

The rear camera records stunning videos at up to Full HD 1080p resolution, and OIS reduces shakiness to make your videos much more pleasant to watch. The Lumia 928 also offers a front-facing camera for on-the-go video calls that can record up to HD 720p resolution.

Better Sound

In addition to amazing imaging and video capabilities, the Lumia 928 offers rich distortion-free audio capture, even in noisy conditions. Built with three high-audio-amplitude-capture (HAAC) microphones, the Lumia 928 enables you to capture everything from the thumping bass of your favorite band to the delighted laugh of a playing child with the best clarity possible.

The Lumia 928 also features one of the most advanced loudspeakers available for smartphones, delivering incredibly loud and clear sound -- all the way up to 140 db (the sound equivalent of an airplane taking off). A high-performance loudspeaker and powerful digital amplifier is combined with real-time measurement and control, resulting in unmatched clarity and loudness. Taken together, these features shine when using Vyclone, a new app for Windows Phone (available from the Windows Phone Store) that enables you to co-create, sync, and edit multiple views of a shared moment.

If you prefer to listen to music via headphones, the Lumia 928 also features Dolby Headphone audio enhancements to create a rich sound stage for your music and videos. You can also customize the sound with a seven-band graphic equalizer.

I had been waiting for this phone for 6 months, as ATT had an exclusivity contract with Nokia for the 920, and I must say that it was well worth the wait. This phone is fantastic all around. I can't tell you how many android and apple users have stopped me to comment on my phone, picked it up to play with, and sighed with regrets that they just renewed their contracts picking up a new Galaxy or iPhone.

A brief breakdown by area:

Hardware: Nice size and weight, not bulky or heavy despite some biased reviews out there, and is certainly lighter than the iPhone once its been "Otterboxed." Smooth and curved on the back for ease of holding, squared off on front. Easy to reach the whole screen with my thumb despite having small hands for a man. Wireless charging with the basic charging pad is quick and simple. Very satisfied to not have to struggle with micro-usbs anymore. Can't comment on durability because I haven't dropped it yet.

Interace: Sleek, smooth, feels very high end and hi-tech, making the iPhone and Galaxy feel dated.

Screen quality: Beautiful. Slightly dimmer than the iPhone at top brightness. Good visibility outside in sun.

Battery Life: Pretty good, with heavy use you will likely need to recharge at least once daily.

Apps: This is the big gripe point with WindowsPhones in general. There are fewer of thost "must-have" Apps, most notably instagram, dropbox, and personally for me HBOGO, however, these are the only Apps I find myself missing. There are decent 3rd party apps that can do the same. Lomogram for instagram, SkyDrive for dropbox. No 3rd party HBOGO app, but Netflix and Hulu are available. Pandora and Nokia music should keep you happy on the music end.

A User Review on the Nokia Lumia 928.

Got my Nokia 928 a few days ago. First, overall the phone is
GREAT and I would recommend it to anyone. IMO it is the Best Windows Phone to date. I will also say that in comparison to the other Operating System's; Android and iOS, Windows Phone 8 OS is better and faster in my opinion. Of course that is Subjective. Everyone has his or her preference as to the features, apps, size, style, color and specs of a phone that work for them and that's just fine. My sister likes the iphone 5 and it works just fine for here. My younger
brother likes Android ICS and it works fine for him. The point is, I nor anyone
else has to convince each person that they should buy a particular Phone. Having said that this is just a review for anyone not sure of Windows Phone 8.

The Pros and the Cons.
1. The Operating System: The Windows Phone 8 OS is
smooth fast and responsive. It runs faster on a lower processor than a newer Android's faster quad processor. The point is, it doesn't have to have 4 or more
processors to run smoother and faster. Though I have not had it longer the 8
days as of this review I nor the persons I know who have a WP8, have not
experienced the lags, bugs and many reboots I have had with Android Phones and Tablets. I didn't like the Windows Tiles when I first heard or seen them in pictures, but expect for the plain colors (you eventually get use to them) they work great. The Live Tiles update you on all the info you need on one screen without having to click on a bunch of different apps Mail, Facebook, Weather, Agenda, Calender, Messaging are all updated right on the front screen. You can customize the look, size, color of your Tiles and change them with ease.

Size: 32 GBService Provider: Verizon WirelessColor: Black
Background: In the past three years, I have used iPhone 4, 4S and 5. I also used Droid X and Samsung Galaxy S3. Let me tell you from the start that I am not a loyal customer of any brand. I will give my business to any company as long as they give me the best value possible. Hopefully, this background information will be useful to you since if we are coming from different backgrounds, this review maybe useless to you.

First of all, I am not a heavy user. When I had Android phones, I didn't install custom roms or anything like that due to security concerns. I also didn't jailbreak my iPhones for the same reason. I don't install tons of apps or play many games on my phones. Just to give you an idea, I probably had less than 100 apps in my iPhone and much less than that on S3 since the apps that I would want to download on Android platform would require me to accept their unreasonable terms where apps would want to access my contacts, full network access, phone storage, messages and such for no apparent reason. I log into banks and etc on my phones, there is no way I am giving those kind of permissions to apps!

As a result, I am not a fan of Android. Also, I had a lot of issues with both of my Android phones. Even the Samsung Galaxy S3 had lagging, freezing and rebooting issues after only 2 weeks of usage. Plus, the build quality of the S3 left a lot to be desired. So, I sold it after owning it for less than a month and purchased an iPhone 4S.

My experience with IOS was much better. I initially didn't have any lagging, freezing or rebooting issues at all. What they advertised was true, it just worked. It was somewhat boring and had a small screen compared to competitors but it was safer and it worked great.
