    One of the biggest rumors/news going around is about the L928. As more details emerge I want to start the discussion. Here is what we think we know so far.

    Details emerge on Verizon

    What does this community this about the 928? What will we be seeing and when will we be able to get our hands on this device?

    LOL at the rate technology is moving, you will never be completely satisfy with your device.
    I am still using Lumia 900 and waiting for Nokia to announce high-end smartphone.

    Now that rumors has been heating up, I'm catching up on the issues with the 920, one of which is the dust on the front facing camera. I'm hoping Nokia saw this problem and rectified it for the 928.

    Haha. Remove clearback and beats and that's a phone I'd plunk $500 for tomorrow (the lack of such a phone for so long would make me overpay.) I mean, I'm not opposed to clearback or beats, just don't care.

    Give me 4" or less, fantastic lowlight camera, WP8 and modern internals. All I want.

    Looking to jump ship from 'ole T-Mo in April or May. We've been favoring AT&T because of their support of Windows Phone, but this could shift the balance to Verizon. Both have about the same coverage out here in Phoenix, so it may just come down to who has the best phone deal in the next 6-10 weeks.

    I surely hope they wouldn't downgrade it to only 16GB internal memory from the 920's 32. My wife and I are still using our T-Mo HD7's (7.8), but at 2 years old, they are starting to freeze up on a weekly basis. They've been great phones though. Just hate the data performance on T-Mo.

    I am hoping that they will be using the camera package from the Nokia N8.. a xenon flash requires a mechanical shutter, so it will be easier to use something they already have, and that has been tested by users for years.

    I am also very excited to see how they managed to make that Xenon flash work on Windows NT.. that would be a first for the kernel :)

    I'm staying with AT&T and also am still using a Lumia 900. I'm hoping to see something more high end than the Lumia 920 by the time I'm eligible for an upgrade this fall/winter.

    T-Mo will introduce 928/920 variation this summer.

    I'm anxious to see the real specs of this phone. If it has only 16GB, I'll be disappointed. If it has no SD slot, I'll be disappointed. But why in the world downgrade the sensor? Doesn't 920 have 8.7MP, and this one leaked with only 8? That won't be a deal breaker for me, but it would be a letdown.

    Macphisto stated in the "Verge reports..." thread to not trust them. He is hearing 16 gig/Micro SD and 12 MP sensor.

    That sounds nothing like a Lumia 920 though so idk what to believe at this point

    I'm with you on that, but if I had to put money down, I would go with our two resident Verizon employees.

    Exactly, that's why im confused who to believe. Either way I will be very happy, even happier if MacPhisto is correct! 16gb is enough for apps for me, as long as I have a micro sd for music, videos and pictures!

    I agree. I'm actually less concerned with the specs as I am with the issues associated with the 920. mainly the dust accumulation in the front facing camera. That would annoy me to no end.

    For me, 16GB won't be something I'd really want to embrace, unless they completely fix the "Other" storage issue. I've reached a point where I am concerned about reaching the end, because that 64GB card I have in there won't do a bit of good if I'm wanting to install an app. I did already have to uninstall a few games to install something else once. Games aren't all that important to me, but since I do let the grandkids play in Kid's Corner, I don't want to have to go uninstalling...

    So would it force you to pass on the 928? Macphisto, alluded that the Catwalk might hit Verizon first, so there is that possibility if you want to forego the 928.

    it'd be nice if WP8 had the option, like WP7, where the external memory became part of the system.

    Either way (16GB or 32GB) I'm getting whichever comes out first.

    Megapixels don't mean as much as people make them out to be

    That's what HTC keeps saying about the One...

    HTC has the right idea, they just don't realize that there are other factors that contribute to good photographic quality, like proper lens sourcing and writing outstanding processing software. If Nokia made a phone with a 5MP sensor with larger pixels but kept the same lens and software, it would do better in low light than the 920 and have less noise all around.

    So why didn't Nokia do that then? If I had a guess, I'd say it's because the marketers told the engineers that they needed a 8.7MP sensor to sell their phones. And they were right. Photographers would have appreciated the smaller yet better sensor, but we wouldn't have made up for the sales lost by people who have been trained to think that there's any sort of noticeable difference between 8.0 and 8.7MP- all else being equal. The 920 HAD to succeed. Nokia has everything riding on WP8. They couldn't give anyone a reason (real or fabricated) to discount the phone offhand, so that's a sacrifice that had to be made. HTC can afford to experiment a little because they have fingers in every pie. If they screw it up (which it looks like they might), then it's going to reinforce the false notion that MP means anything at all, which is sad, but everyone else will work around it.
