Weekend Watch: Mark Reviews the Nokia Lumia 928

| May 25, 2013 | 30 Replies

Screen Shot 2013-05-25 at 11.09.57Mark Guim from TheNokiaBlog reviews the Nokia Lumia 928 on Video.

To summarize this review, I think the Nokia Lumia 928 is the best Windows Phone 8 device out right now and also the best Nokia device right now. I said the exact same thing when I reviewed the Nokia Lumia 920, but the 928 has a few improvements. It improves on the camera flash with xenon and it is also available on the very reliable and fast Verizon LTE network.


If you’re an Android or iPhone user looking to switch, the Windows Phone 8 experience feels refreshing. Many of your favorite apps are also showing up in the Windows phone store. The app selection may not be as big as Android or iPhone right now, but it is getting better each day.

In this review, I talked about some of the important features on the Nokia Lumia 928, but I think a major selling point is the price. The suggested price is only $99 with contract, but keep watching Amazon. You can get it cheaper there. Those who do not want to sign up for 2 year contracts can buy the phone for $499.

      “The whole xenon thing is just a gimmick”

      Wow either that guy has no clue about what he’s talking about or Nokia/MS really screwed up!

      • Ady

        Don’t worry, spacemodel is one of the few Nokia haters -for no obvious reason- that keep visiting this blog regularly and start hating and trolling around. Xenon flash on the L928 works perfectly as a proper xenon flash should. The “reviewer” from there is either a hater or a paid shill or something.

        • poopshoot

          I was gonna say that as well.

          I saw that video awhile back..It’s definitely melodramatic.

  • sbw44

    I thought Nokia said this phone had the best loudspeaker on the market. Really disappointed!

    SO is this a new style for Bloggers[and not journalists]:
    “Blogging about another blogger’s blog post”
    Well what else to do, when own blog turns stale lately πŸ™‚

    The Times They Are a-Changin’


    P.S. let the attacks come in, im waiting

    • arts

      im just going to pity you.

      • Tej ppaarrkkeerr

        I too pity you dear, we all have our own problems, dont we? Im sure you are nowhere near perfect and have your share of ugliness.

        One of my guru once told me, “Stop reacting automatically to things you hear, see or read. Unless it’s a grave or ecstatic matter, you need not react the way you are expected to. Be neutral and let the mind control your next step. Many people, far more than you would think, behave exactly the opposite of what they actually are, or simply don’t realize what they are saying”

        I think the good old author of this post is following it now; its a good thing, keep it up πŸ™‚

        • arts

          πŸ˜‰ yawn.

      “Random, informal Nokia blog for Nokia, Symbian, Maemo, MeeGo and Windows Phone news, reviews, rants, suggestions and applications.”

      • Tej ppaarrkkeerr

        You should comprehend that more carefully. Get a GMAT prep book to improve reading skills. Also read the second last line of my comment above.
        Same to the idiot who commented below πŸ™‚

        • Hypnopottamus

          I’m still waiting for you to tell us where it says you can’t link or talk about other articles by other people. And if you’re so great of a blogger, where is your blog.

          Now do you have anything relevant to add about the article or are you gonna troll like a pathetic 12 year old trying to get some kicks?

          • Tej ppaarrkkeerr

            Well, you have proved again your slipshod comprehension skills. I dont need to tell you why you cant link to another blog, because i never said it shouldnt be done so. If you can re-read my original post, you will understand that i was pondering about such novel methods of blogging and how the times are a changing. NOT that it shouldnt be done. Does that answer your question? Or shall i elaborate and start from scratch. I mean, A for apple, B for ball L for LOL πŸ˜€

          • Tej ppaarrkkeerr

            P.S. you dont need to be a blogger to notice such nuances; But for special people like you, remember that ignorance is bliss atleast in this blog

            • Hypnopottamus

              I’m still trying to understand the point of your post and why the “let the attacks come in” comment. If there is a misunderstanding here its simply because you make absolutely NO SENSE! Accusing someone of not comprehending something only works if your comment
              1. Had a point
              2. Was remotely coherent.

              • Tej ppaarrkkeerr

                Let me make it clear my friend, i was just pondering and that was not meant to address anybody. Freedom of expression, right ? So it makes total sense to me. What did YOU want to make of it ? I wouldnt want someone to tell me what this blog stands for as thats out of point. So ultimately, my post was not meant to inspire any doubts or clarifications. Second, i asked for thhe attacks to come in, i wanted to hear the MNB loyalists who would anyway rant at my post usually, so why not welcome then beforehand. Im sorry if that last sentence inspired you πŸ™
                But as i said, one shouldnt react unnecessarily. Life is too short to make arguments right?
                But arguments like these are music to my ears. Its not worth of your time if you are dragging yourself into it, but hey, you should kow it better πŸ™‚

                P.S. i think you are irked about the whole comprehension thing. Im sorry if i said anything wrong. Have a great time πŸ™‚

    • Hypnopottamus

      What/where is your blog? Apparently you can’t read so well. On the very top of this blog it tells you what to expect. Please enlighten us where it says that there won’t be any articles from any other sources. What, you can’t? Then please STFU!

    • I’m sorry, I have exams at the moment and real busy with prep. I wanted to make sure I had the chance to share something Nokia related yesterday. Fortunately the format of the blog is ‘informal’. Nothing serious – we contribute what we can when we can.

      Feel free to contribute something to the blog.

      Also feel free to add me on Skype to discuss how I can do better with blogging in addition to managing how I balance Uni/extracurricular/social. You seem to have quite a few expertise in this field that I’d love to take advantage of.

      What’s your name? Please send us a real name and a photo of you so we know who is bestowing us such wisdom.

      • Tej ppaarrkkeerr

        Thats so kind of you, Jay. Thanks to,you i had to change my name so many times to pprrkkeerrr and what now coz you blocked my original tej parker name.
        Jay, im not a blogger and im not even close to your talents with blogging/ medicine. And i never mean to offend anyone. Its just a ugly habit i got of criticising people, if i do not like something about what they do.
        Posts on mnb these days is quite uninteresting, in my opinion. Thats the only feedback as a visitor

        All the best with exams

        Tej Parker

        • Thank you,

          The reason your name was set on the flagged list was due to the multiple warnings we gave you about insulting and antagonising on the blog. We asked you multiple times yet you continued. We prefer not to, but you insisted (swearing, attacking is just not on)

          There’s genuinely trying to critique and improve and then there’s purposely trying to be vile and nasty which you, unfortunately, have been.

          I can provide you URLs if you wish.

          Critiquing to improve requires not just back handed comments or insults, but ideas and suggestions – something constructive. You’ve been here for a long time, commenting again and again about how the blog makes you sick or you aren’t liking it. We can suggest other related blogs for you to visit instead since we clearly can’t cater for you and I’m sorry about that.

  • Just Visiting

    I like the fact that Mark waited 2 weeks before doing his review – he spent plenty of time with it so that he could give a thorough review of the device.

    • spacemodel

      Yep, and totally unbiased…

  • Robert

    Mark should note that the xenon flash has the same output rating as the LED flash on the lumia 920. The Xenon flash on the Nokia N8 totally kills the one on the 928
