Reviews for the Nokia Lumia 928

The Nokia Lumia 928 is a minor improvement over the Lumia 920, which we already thought was a solid Windows Phone 8 device. The improvements Nokia made with the Lumia 928 are slight and certainly make this a better device, but still not enough to earn our “excellent” rating as we still aren’t big fans of the device’s physical button layout, and the Windows Phone 8 Marketplace still has yet to catch up with Android and iOS in regards to providing must-have applications.

60% Nokia Lumia 928 review - is cheaper Lumia 920 the great Windows Phone?
Source: Tech Advisor English Archive.org version
The Nokia Lumia 928 is a painful reminder of the miserable state of Windows Phone. While the handset boasts a few improvements over the Lumia 920, the Lumia 928 lacks a must-have feature that isn't already done better on competing platforms. The phone's $100 price tag and lower-light photography capabilities will be enough to pique the interest of some more budget-minded buyers, but the Lumia 928's overall raw mediocrity and lack of third-party apps keeps it from being truly memorable.

Nokia Lumia 928 Review
Source: Slashgear English Archive.org version
The Verizon Nokia Lumia 928 will cost you $99 USD with a 2-year contract after a $50 mail-in rebate – that’s less than half the cost of some of the higher-end competitors on the carrier today (like the Samsung GALAXY S 4 and the Galaxy Note II), and essentially equal to that of the Samsung Galaxy S III. It’s also equal to the price of the Windows Phone 8X from HTC, a device that was released several months ago that we reviewed as well. If you’re going for tactile feeling alone, you might want the HTC device – otherwise I’d stick by the Nokia hardware for basically everything else.

The Lumia 928 is a solid refresh of the Lumia 920 and a compelling Windows Phone option for Verizon shoppers who have been waiting to get their hands on Nokia's PureView camera. While still on the heavy side, the updated design makes for a sleeker, easier-to-manage device. We also applaud the new camera apps and improved audio quality, as well as the brighter AMOLED display.

Nokia: Nokia is a Finnish company founded in 1865 and headquartered in Finland. The company is known for its telecommunications equipment and cell phones. Nokia was one of the leading manufacturers of cell phones in the 1990s and has expanded its business into networking and technology solutions in recent years. 

In 2011, Nokia partnered with Microsoft on Windows-based cell phones and sold the entire cell phone division to Microsoft in 2014, which limited the Nokia brand name to basic cell phones. In 2016, Finnish electronics manufacturer HMD Global entered into a licensing agreement with Nokia, bought the remaining Nokia name rights from Microsoft Mobile, and since 2017 has exclusively offered Nokia cell phones worldwide, which are based on Android, among other things, and are produced by Foxconn.


73.33%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
