    For those who already have it, how is the call quality of the 928? I'm really on the fence with the 928. I have an S4 on order, but I'm not terribly thrilled with its build quality and the small amount of free memory compared to the 928. I'll be using my phone to make a lot of phone calls (business phone), so this is an important aspect.

    Also, has anyone used Bluetooth to connect to their vehicle audio system? Curious as to how that sounds.

    I haven't been super impressed, but I've also only used it for a few phone calls. It seemed better when using my Bluetooth headset, but I had trouble hearing the other end a couple of times last night. It's really tough to tell if it was due to the cell connection on the other end, though... I don't remember having this issue with the iPhone 4, but it's too early to tell for sure, and I haven't spoken to anyone on a land line yet.

    The call quality is excellent for me and Bluetooth is also good. When using the speakerphone its loud and very clear.

    Call quality is awesome. I live in a house with a metal roof. When I had my iphone the caller on the other line could not hear me and the call would usually drop. Now with this phone I can walk anywhere in the house and the calls never drop.

    Call quality is really good for me too. Sounds good over Bluetooth in the car too.

    So the 928 hangs on to phone calls pretty well in fringe service areas?

    I am hoping mine is solid when it arrives this week. I was surprised to read a few less than stellar reviews of the call quality being that this is a Nokia.

    I would say that call quality was the thing I have been most surprised about with the 928. I wasn't expecting such a huge difference over the 8X, but it certainly is. Very impressive! I can't wait to try out my BT headset next week with it.

    It's much better than my Trophy was and sounds very good to me. I can't really compare it to anything else. I had an 8X, but that was months ago, so I can't compare.

    Possibly it's the network, or the other person that they're calling. Garbage in, garbage out.

    I've always been pro Motorola because of their radios. I live in a fringe area and drop calls all the time. There are just some spots where I live that there's no reception period. I got the 928 through work and its used for tech support calls. I still have my droid RAZR also. I have tested them side by side for the past several days. I would say that the 928 radio and call quality is on par with the Motorola if not a tad better. I have dropped calls with it in the exact same spot that my RAZR drops them but in testing the data side, the 928 speeds are slightly better. I have also noticed that most times, the 928 is quicker to get on the 4G network than my RAZR. Lastly, the signal bars(yes I know they truly don't mean much) but they vary wildly on the 928 vs the RAZR.
