Nokia Lumia 928 Review

Score: 7.6/10

Nokia Lumia 928 is a high quality Windows Phone 8 cellphone launched some years ago, counting with a 4.5-inches display, a fast Dual-Core CPU speeding at 1.5 gigahertz, an 8.7 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 1.2 mega-pixels front side camera. But it's time to get into a bit more detail.

Nokia decided to equip the Lumia 928 using a powerful Dual-Core CPU running at 1500 megahertz, packed into the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus MSM8960 system chip and 1 GB of RAM. Graphic calculations often eats a lot of CPU time, so this phone has a 400 megahertz Adreno 225 GPU to unload the processor. A good point of this phone is its huge 32 GB internal storage memory and although it doesn't have an SD memory card expansion slot, it is still enough to install hundreds of apps and even the largest games available nowadays without even thinking about running out of space at all.

Talking about its construction, this phone is majorly manufactured with Polycarbonate. This phone feels a bit heavy comparing with today standards, weighting 5.7 ounces. This cellphone is sold in 2 color options, black and white. This cellphone's thickness of 0.4 inches is a bit far from nowadays standards, but it still feels quite fine in the hand.

This cellphone has two cameras, an 8.7 MP back camera and a 1.2 megapixels front facing camera. Its back camera has a 2 aperture so it can shoot excellent photos even in poorly lit environments. It can also capture videos in 1920x1080 (Full HD) at 30 fps. Additionally, the camera has some nice characteristics like auto-focus, flash, optical image stabilization, geo tagging and face detection shooting.

Nokia packed this cellphone with a incredible 4.5 inches display, and a 1280 x 768 resolution, which makes all images and videos look absolutely perfect. Its display uses AMOLED capacitive technology, and has multi-touch detection.

The Lumia 928 packs a 2000 mAh medium sized Li-Polymer replaceable battery that provides this phone a very long battery life. Nokia informs a talk time of 11.8 hours and a stand by time of 606 hours for this phone.

This phone features WiFi connectivity (but it can't be shared with other devices acting as a hotspot), LTE (4G) high speed data connection and also HSPA+ internet connection, which is a lower speed 4G type or 3G fast connection type, using HSDPA, HSUPA, UMTS, EV-DO A and EDGE technologies. This phone uses a Micro SIM card to use GSM services and it can work with both CDMA and GSM networks.

This cellphone also comes with some interesting features like Bluetooth (3.0, EDR), GPS and NFC (Near Field Communication), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

The Nokia Lumia 928 is being sold for only 249 dollars, a surprisingly low price comparing with other similar phones. No matter whether you are looking for a device to mostly use social networks, are looking for a device to play lots of games, want a work cellphone or want this device to take many pictures, you will probably love this cellphone. Nokia sells this phone with Nokia Battery BV-4NW 2000 mAh, Nokia AC-50U MicroUSB Charger, Printed material, SIM Door Key, Nokia Charging and Data Cable (CA-190CD) and Nokia Headset WH-208.
