Nokia Lumia 928 Review

Nokia Lumia 928 reviews tend to dwell on the phone's use of the Windows Phone 8 operating system, a solid OS that holds its own against Google's Android and Apple's iOS. The Nokia Lumia 928 (starting at 1 cent, Amazon) is exclusive to Verizon and impresses a reviewer at Slashgear with its sharp display and speedy performance. Another strength, according to this expert, is an ability to take very good photos in low light, a real challenge for most smartphones. One caveat from Slashgear: The battery life isn't long enough for power users. If you rely on this phone a lot, you might not make it through the day before you need to recharge.

The weak battery life also rears its head in a Nokia Lumia 928 review at Tech Radar, where the reviewer asserts that the battery is simply inadequate if you plan to use the phone for more than just calls. However, the Nokia Lumia 928 helps make up for that with zippy performance, and an excellent AMOLED display. Photos snapped with the 8.7-megapixel camera look crisp and clear. Ultimately this reviewer declares the Nokia Lumia 928 a good smartphone but not a standout.

Where to buy

This handset has a 4.5-inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 768, high enough for 720p HD. It runs on a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor and comes with with 32 GB of memory. The phone has a 1.3 MP front camera and, like other smartphones, supports 4G LTE, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi.

The Windows Phone 8 OS is well-liked by experts and users alike, so if you're looking for an affordable alternative to Android or Apple, the Nokia Lumia 928 is a good place to start. Reviewers are pleased with the phone's overall performance and functionality and admire the crisp, brightly colored display. The only serious drawback is the lackluster battery.
