    Something is wrong with that photo. I've seen plenty of real pics. They don't look like that.

    That looks like someone cut it out of a magazine ad.

    something really wrong with that photo... where on earth did you find it?! so i can avoid that website because they obviously dont know how to take a photo so how in the heck are they going to have an opinion worth reading about a cameraphone?

    EDIT: nm - i know who that is... TheNokiaBlog - Mark Guim...
    He should know better than that... long time blogger about Nokia et al.

    EDIT 2 :)
    Apparently its a pamphlet (brochure) :)

    To be honest, I'm a little disappointed in the design. I saw in one thread someone said "that's a beautiful phone." Really?? The 928 is not an impressive looking phone, compared to all the other phones in the Verizon store. It has some good specs and features, but I don't see how anyone could call it a beautiful phone. If Nokia really wanted to attract buyers, they should have created a phone that is unique, like HTC designed the 8X or the Galaxy line. Yeah, beautiful is in the eye of the beholder, but compared to the Samsung androids and the Iphone 5, I just don't see the beauty. And they should have come out with some colors on the first day. You can buy an iphone in black and white!

    I do agree there should have been more colors, but I think the phone looks really nice in white. I would have liked them to use black keys just to give it a little more contrast since the screen makes the phone black on one side and white on the other i think black keys would have really played the two tone aspect up and given it a bit more pop.

    i too like the two tone look, but if they made the buttons black, then what would they do when they did bring out those colors?
    I am ok with same color buttons...brings a differentiation to it from the 920 (which does have the dark buttons)

    Its bloody gorgeous, more in line with the WP design language of clean lines, I wish my 920 looked like that. Reminds me of the Asus WP7 dev phone that was never released.

    Reading through some early reviews and the poster above. The one complaint I keep seeing is that the phone is still thick. I did some comparisons with other phones on the market and just don't understand how it is that much thicker than other phones. We are talking about less than 1/10th of an inch in thickness, except the IPhone and virtually the same thickness as the 8x. @gapost if Nokia made their phones to look like the 8x or the Galaxy series than it wouldn't be unique. It would be like all the rest of the phones.

    Lumia 928 - 5.23" x 2.71" x .40"
    HTC 8x - 5.21" x 2.61" x .40"
    IPhone5 - 4.87" x 2.31" x .30"
    S4 - 5.38" x 2.74" x .31"
    S3 - 5.38" x 2.78" x .34
    Phone: Nokia Lumia Icon, LG G2, Nokia Lumia 928, HTC Windows Phone 8x
    Media Player: Zune HD 32 x 2, Zune 120, Zune 80
    Tablet: Microsoft Surface 2 64Gb, Microsoft Surface RT 64Gb, IPad Air, Archos 101, Archos 70

    I'd rather have a so-so looking device that works great than a great-looking device that has mediocre performance. IMO, most Samsung products fit in the latter category.


    Other notable devices:
    Windows laptops: Asus VivoBook X202E (Windows 8), HP Pavilion g4-1215dx (Windows 7)
    Chromebooks: Samsung Chromebook XE303

    Has anyone that's used it commented if the group texting exists in this phone or if Verizon removed it?

    Whats up with Nokia using stone age concept of placing the mini usb port on top? It not only looks UGLY, you can't connect a dock connector. if you are connecting it with a wired charging you have to place it inverted in order to see.

    1) Mini USB on bottom and
    2) 3.5MM Audio on top

    Should be the standard every smartphone manufacturer should follow

    CPU............................Intel E8400 @ 3.6Ghz
    Mobo....................................ASUS P5Q Pro
    RAM.............................4GB G.Skill DDR2 800

    928 has wireless charging. I only use uUSB on the few occasions I want to sync up with my laptop.

    I don't even care if the 3.5 is on the bottom but the usb should ALWAYS be on the bottom! There is absolutely no good for it being on the top!

    That is one big reason I still love my Lumia 920.

    I think it was a design choice because if you think about it, you get to use the phone a bit more freely with it on the top. You can hold the bottom while using the phone and do not have to maneuver around the cord. I'm picturing it and it makes sense in my mind...LOL.

    Having headphone and charging port on the same side is awesome! Apple did it with the iPhone 5. Glad nokias following suit.
    Great for when your in youre car.

    I prefer both on the same end, but the argument for docks, I would guess that they would counter with the suggestion of wireless charging and BT streaming, so there is no need for a dock.
