The Lumia 928 may be a very minor update to the Lumia 920, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. The Lumia 920 was a great phone, and one that left subscribers to other carriers feeling envious of AT&T. For Verizon customers, the Lumia 928 is the perfect solution to that jealousy. It takes everything that was desirable about the Lumia 920, tweaks the design for the better, and throws a Xenon flash in the mix to ensure that it remains the king of low-light smartphone camera shooting.
There are still some problems with it, however, including its big, heavy, slippery build, slightly dated specs, and the inherent flaws of the platform (namely, the weak app selection). But for that demographic of Verizon customers who happen to also be fans of the Windows Phone platform — and don’t want to compromise by settling for a mid-level phone like the Samsung ATIV Odyssey or the Lumia 822 — the Lumia 928 is their savior.
