If you've been interested in the Nokia Lumia 928 but have been waiting for its price tag to drop, now could well be your time to leap and make the purchase. We've just been made aware of the Windows Phone, which is now available for just $49.99 when taken out with a new contract. That's a cracker of a deal for a brand new flagship Windows Phone.
If you’re reading this using a Nokia Lumia 928 on Verizon you can start counting your lucky stars. It looks like the device in your hand has more under the hood than we’ve been led to believe. Later this year Verizon is upgrading their LTE network to support faster speeds. The only thing standing between your Lumia 928 and that network is time and a software update.
We’ve heard a lot of discussion from users, mostly anecdotal, about their local carriers and how well they are promoting Windows Phone in the store. Some are horror stories, with reps pushing Android or the iPhone while often there are great experiences too.
Telstra though as evidently set the bar with their in-store advisements.
In fact, it’s so good that Microsoft has made a video in conjunction with the popular carrier to highlight their effort. It’s quite the achievement to see Windows Phone promoted in such a way and while US carriers like AT&T and Verizon are getting serious about putting Windows Phone front and center, we think Telstra here sets a great example.
There's very little arguement that the Nokia Lumia 92x series of Windows Phones performs extremely well in low light conditions. The latest Verizon commercial, #takebetterphotos, highlights the Lumia 928's camera's low light abilities.
Touted as the "best low light smartphone camera around" the thirty second ad illustrates how well the 928's camera performs when lighting is at a minimum. Similar to the Lumia 920, the Lumia 928's benefits from the optical stabilization and Nokia's Pureview technology to improve photos captured in those dimly lit situations.
The Nokia Lumia 928 is an exclusive to the Verizon network and is currently running $99.99 after contractual discounts.
Mother always said life was like a box of chocolates. If you shop around you’ll find older, seasonal selections for a cheaper price. Giving you some extra money for the rest of the date. Or something like that. Same applies for smartphones, if you shop around you’ll get some sweet deals for a phone that isn’t old – the Nokia Lumia 928 on Verizon.
We told you earlier that we’d do an unboxing and give you our first impressions of Verizon’s new flagship Lumia, the 928. The device is due any day now on the carrier for $99 on contract and while it’s not the sexiest Lumia we’ve handled, as Han Solo once quipped: she has it where it counts, kid.
The Lumia 928 features a stunning 4.5” AMOLED display, the same highend PureView camera as the Lumia 920 but with a bonus Xenon flash, a high quality rear speaker with digital amplifier and a unique design that only Verizon users will get to experience. It’s a Lumia 920 but refined: thinner and easier to handle.
We've been saying for a while now that the Nokia Lumia 928 is essentially a slightly-retooled Lumia 920 for Verizon. And sure enough, now that 928's been formally announced, we can compare the spec sheets and say, "Yes, they're just about the same phone." But there are some differences - let's see just what they are.
Colour us surprised, but not so. Nokia has announced the Lumia 928, which will be heading to Verizon and will be available May 16th. According to a post over on Nokia Conversations, we're looking at a new flagship Windows Phone from Nokia that confirms previous rumoured specifications. Pricing for the Lumia 928 will be $99.99 after a $50 main-in-rebate, when taken out with a two-year contract.
Nokia hasn’t been shy about the Nokia Lumia 928. A few days ago they put the device up on their homepage and have slowly been releasing video footage from the device. Today we get another tease. Let’s check it out.
We’re getting a few reports in today that Verizon has begun rolling out some tiny firmware updates for their HTC 8x and Lumia 822 smartphones. Indeed we fired up an 822 to be greeted with a small update that took less than 5 minutes to install.
So what’s news? Well, this appears to be a very, very small update meant to be a quick fix for some nagging issues. We say that only because your radio, firmware and OS versions will not change with these updates. That tells us that this is basically a firmware patch of some sorts, meant more for tweaks than new features.
Collect 142,369 online customers service reviews published before March 30, 2013 and what would you expect to find? Are customers more satisfied with their iPhones? Maybe they prefer a Samsung Galaxy something? Nope. A lot of them preferred their Nokia handset across all the carriers here in the U.S.
According to two unnamed sources, Bloomberg is reporting that Verizon will start selling the Nokia Lumia 928 next month. This comes shortly after earlier whispers that Big Red's version of the Lumia 920 would be officially announced on April 25, which seem to fall in line with Bloomberg's findings. Perhaps that ratchets our 5 on the Rum-o-meter up to a 6 or maybe even a 7.
Last morning/night/afternoon (depends on where you are, it was about 15 hours ago) we showed you all sides of the upcoming Nokia Lumia 928. It’s destined for Verizon Wireless here in the States. A few people commented about how they’d skip the device if it only came in black. This is Nokia, do you really think there would be just one color? We now have the same render from last night, but in white/silver color.
Good news for customers of Verizon Wireless here in the United States, we have another look at the upcoming Nokia Lumia 928. We first got a nice render from @evleaks about two weeks ago. It showed off the front and back of the upcoming device, but now we’ve got a look at the sides as well.
We've seen renderings, images and even a video highlighting the screen assembly on the Nokia Lumia 928 that is destined for Verizon. We are now hearing rumors that Nokia will officially announce the Lumia 928 on April 25th with availability in stores a few weeks later.
The Lumia 928 is expected to sport a 4.5" Super AMOLED screen and an 8.7MP OIS Pureview camera. Basically, a lighter, slightly redesigned version of the Lumia 920.
Shh, don't tell Nokia, but the Lumia 928 isn't exactly a secret. The high-end Lumia is destined for Verizon Wireless here in the United States. Further adding to the growing evidence are these parts for the Lumia 928. If you're planning on some DIY repair adventures you'll want to check this out.
We've followed the Lumia 928 fairly closely, with multiple images being leaked showing different variants and revealing more features of the upcoming Windows Phone. Now an Amazon-based merchant has published an accessory for the yet-to-arrive smartphone. The case is pictured alongside what appears to be the Lumia 920, but the rear shows hole configurations that will cater for both the Xenon flash and speaker that's found on the Lumia 928 renders.
Well, at least we know this is real…or at least a real render. The Nokia Lumia 928, destined for Verizon, was imaged on Friday via the Twitter feed @evleaks. Now, the same source has posted a render of the phone in all white, revealing a few more details
Although we have no idea what it actually looks like, the Lumia 928 and its camera are sure getting a work out. Yesterday we saw numerous photos leak that were taken with the 8.7MP camera (and even front-facing one) and today from the same source we evidently have more.
We say evidently because some of these photos are missing EXIF information, the crucial data that is embedded in each photo, often revealing the device name, lens, f-stop, etc.; having said that it’s clear that these photos are from the same day as the previously verified photos, so it’s a safe assumption that this is part of a set.
It’s hard to get that excited for the Lumia 928 considering how little we actually know, but one thing is for certain: it should have an 8.7MP OIS PureView camera on board a lighter, thinner phone, giving those on Verizon something to brag about.
Earlier today, a single sample shot taken of a beer was posted online by a Nokia employee (and then it was quickly removed) and now two more photos have been found on Flickr by The Nokia Blog (with verified EXIF data)..
