Review: Nokia Lumia 928 for Verizon Wireless

Form Performance Basics Extras Wrap-Up Comments  8  

The Lumia 928 is a fine phone, though it stops short of being excellent. I find the blocky nature of the design a bit unappealing and the weight and finicky controls don't help much. The screen is great, though, and the 928 does a fantastic job of connecting to Verizon's network. Voice calls were mediocre, but battery life was really good.

The software features aren't that different from other Windows Phone devices, save for the custom apps developed by Nokia. Nokia's HERE Maps and Creative Suite apps are highlights, for sure. For the amount of boasting that Nokia does about its PureView camera technology, I was not impressed with the 928's performance in that regard. The camera can be fantastic, but all too often it is merely just OK.

For Verizon customers who want or need a Windows Phone device, the Nokia Lumia 928 is a solid choice for the moment.
