928 pd


Here are some more video reviews of the Nokia Lumia 928 for Verizon, this time from Mobile Tech Review, Phone Dog and Phone Arena.

Lisa says, unlike AMOLEDs outdoor, this one’s pretty good and really effective outdoors. Look how black the blacks are. She’s a big fan of the camera too though funnily says it ‘competes well’ with other current high end smartphones. No trouble on a full day, one charge.


Aaron says this is quite an important handset, being on the nation’s largest wireless carrier.

On to Phone Arena

Not a review but Chris Pirillo looks at the 928

  • tiyo xi

    not for india , ok we needs eos now

    • Souvik

      we need eos ๐Ÿ™

      • tiyo xi

        why are you sad , the more late eos will come the more feautures and advanse it will

  • Banderpop

    Should be interesting to see the eventual daylight visibility tests of the 928 and 925 on GSMArena. So far I think the 808 still holds the record there.

    • dss

      Yes, with iPhone 5 being second. I own both, and they are indeed very close in terms of outdoor legibility.

      • manu

        galaxy s4 takes better daylight pic than iphone 5

        • Rafaelinux

          You do realize they’re taking about the phone’s display on daylight, don’t you?

  • johan

    Even if the EOS actually gets revealed this July, rumour has it that it will just be yet another repackaged Lumia 920 with a different camera module. I guess I have accepted to forego the EOS, leave Nokia and wait for the sony Honami instead, instead of opting for extremely outdated Nokia/WP8 which by now is lagging years behind Android flagships ๐Ÿ™

    • dss

      Rumor is that its going to be the 41Mpix module from the 808.. and that is what everybody wants..

      It will actually be cooler if they managed to make it work on the current gen hardware, instead of waiting for Sanp 800 ..that would mean that they are using that extra custom DSP for the camera ๐Ÿ™‚

      • johan

        Agreed, though it would be even better if Microsoft would let Nokia release a phone, today, with the module from 808, but also with a modern 1080p screen and a state of the art chipset to compete with s4, htc one, etc.

        • Peter L

          I don’t think there is any 1080p OEM panel smaller than 5″ available, and you can bet your money on that camera-oriented device from Nokia will absolutely NOT have a 5″ screen.

          So move on and get the Honami if you can’t understand that it’s the UX that counts, not the spec sheet.

          • Puhelimellanikin

            You sound like some people from the old days, living the Symbian religion.

            Specs doesn’t matter. Right.

            • Janne

              Specs matter, sure. But they are not the issue WP sells mediocrely. Uptake is more about the ecosystem.

              920 specs are way superior to iPhone 5 still. They are fine for 4.5″ devices.

              • Puhelimellanikin

                I assume you are speaking about hardware specs. Not software.

                Well, size is also a feature.

                On the other hand, are you saying that three digit YoY growth is mediocre? It’s actually quite good.

                The problem is that Nokia started the race long after the others. Or should we say that Nokia started the race before the others, with Symbian, but the runner got old and fell. Then they sent someone new but that new runner just started so much later than the others.

                • Janne

                  Yes, obviously hardware specs.

                  Three digit YoY is mediocre within the context of where Nokia started from and what they hoped to achieve with the products. They were disappointed with the performance of Lumia during its first year and so they should be. There have been many failures over at Nokia over the past 5-8 years or so.

                  That said, I think Nokia’s mediocre performance has shown enough prowess and progress to keep going with the current strategy, past failings and all. As they will obviously. Lumia is a great product, too bad being great isn’t synonymous with great sales.

              • Viipottaja

                “in a mediocre way”. If you have to use the word in every post ;), at least use it a correct way. ๐Ÿ˜›

                • Janne

                  I find your message mediocrely amusing. ๐Ÿ˜‰

          • Capedonut

            I think actually that a 5+ display could make sense on a high end camera phone. It would eg make light photoshopping more convenient .

            • Capedonut

              Hmm basic would have been a better word than light I guess

            • poopshoot

              NO! A)I don’t want this phone to be over 700$ like the 808 was, (which btw was not a beast in hardware).

              B) Light photoshopping more convenient? Really?

              C)A camera centric device like the 808 and EOS really should focus on battery life. A 5″ screen will not do that justice with a 2000mAh battery. -just saying.

          • sbw44

            Htc One has a 4.7″ 1080p display. Also if specs is not important why does OEM’s use them in their flagships?

            S4 10 million sold
            One 5 million sold
            Xperia Z 5 million sold

            So how many of that millions of that people actually bought the S4 for example for it’s design? for its SW? Millions buy it for its specs.

            • Puhelimellanikin

              He just earlier commented, that if there are two similar products, the consumer doesn’t make the decision based on specs.

              • Capedonut

                But price could affect the decision. If the customer likes wp in general , but is unsure about eg apps, it might be wise to sacrifice some specs to achieve the lower price point. The risk is that you get on a slippery slope, but then again business will always be calculated risk taking

          • Tom

            I am sure you haven’t heard of HTC one. That thing probably sells more than all Lumia’s combined with asp more than double of Lumia.

        • poopshoot

          Every article man…every article we have to go through this! AHH, I want this phone to just release so all you guys can just let it go already. If it happens that it is released in the summer without 1080p with a less than 5″ screen, fine…all you people who have superman vision who can count all the pixels on the screen shouldn’t buy this phone.

          However to the “normal” vision people that can’t see every pixel on the screen (like me -as I don’t even have 20/20 vision with corrected lenses) then the 41MP sensor is we need. Like DSS said, the 41MP sensor is all we want. Give it to us with WP, so it can shut up all the WP haters who bash saying the 808 sensor can’t be ported over.

    • v.s.i

      It’s surely not lagging more than the 808 compared to the S3, the specs were high-end just a year ago. And there’s one more thing – price. The 928 is being sold as a mid-ranger, for example, and the 620 & 520 are very competitive in this regard too.

      If the final price were, say, at most $450-500, it’d be quite attractive. Not everyone can afford the current flagship, but people remember if the last year’s one was also good for its time, and they may just go for it. (but they’d also obsolete the 925 this way, how about that?…)

  • tiyo xi

    Can we port android jelly bean games to Symbian belle by โ€œV-Playโ€ , or any kind of app porting ? And how ,, jay i really want you to support dying symbians , after all you was also ex-lover of symbians please ๐Ÿ™

    • Just Visiting

      Lol! If you want more Symbian articles, just hang out at All About Symbian.

    • manu

      iam really happy that crappy os is finally gone :D.

      • keist

        Symbian was actually the only thing people cared about Nokia. People never wanted to let go of Symbian had they not been forced to. Even Nokia sold more Symbian devices in its last days than Lumia devices. Today, Nokia is a complete flop and irrelevant. That’s the price for ditching Symbian.

        • Janne

          Actually, what eventually became Series 30 was one of the main motivators for me to care about Nokia. Symbian was icing on the cake for a while, but Nokia is way more than just Symbian.

          • Janne

            (Later a special point of care became Maemo, as I know did for many who frequent online sites like this. Symbian religion killed Maemo.)

  • lumiangry

    When should I buy Nokia stocks? I think about middle of June, because the Q2 results will be fine ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Capedonut

      Yeah I don’t know it that was sarcasm or not, but results will be mediocre at the most.

      • Capedonut

        Damn iPad , don’t autocorrect
