    8X is a nice phone but I am set on Nokia. Although most people seem to like the feel of the 8X it doesn't feel good in my hand. If I am going to choose a non pure view camera phone the removeable battery is a deciding factor. Verizon is a must.
    Makes sense. I would wait for the 928 and pass on the 822. I haven't used a 920, but there I found a noticeable difference between the screen and camera in the 822 and 8X and I'm sure the difference is just an big or bigger when the 920 is compared to the 822.

    Last year, wasn't it a common feeling that AT&T would have the exlusive rights to the Nokia top-end phone for six months? Wasn't the 920's release date 11/11/12? So, doesn't it make sense that Verizon won't be allowed to sell the 928 until 5/11/13.
    I'm no expert on these matters.... I hope it's sooner!!!

    It won't be different in terms of performance or exclusive software, it's essentially a 920 in a thinner, aluminum body. I'm guessing it will have slightly poorer camera performance on account of the thinner body and OIS being partly hardware dependent. Camera flash will be better, but people usually avoid using the flash. It might even cost more on account of being newer and more shiny. Take it from my very average, non-professional opinion... get the 920 :)

    Do we really feel the 928 will be that much different than the 920? I need to dump my Note 2 on Verizon and want a 920. Not sure the 928 is worth waiting for. Some rumors indicate it might only have a 4.3" screen. That would be a deal breaker for me.
    We won't know for sure until its released. It will likely be announced in the next week or so, so I think its worth waiting - likely it will be an upgrade.

    These are good questions. The place to look for the answers is in the contract between Nokia and ATT where the terms will be spelled out. Does the contract say, "Nokia top-end phone" or does it say, "Lumia 920"? Does it say, "Launch date," or does it say, "Announcement date," or something else entirely? Does it say that the phone has to be anything like the 920, or can a minor change get around that?

    The answer to the questions is, "Do you have a copy of the contract?" All of our speculation makes no difference at all.

    We won't know for sure until its released. It will likely be announced in the next week or so, so I think its worth waiting - likely it will be an upgrade.
    THIS.

    Elop said that there were "exciting" things coming for Verizon. I don't know about any of you, but to me, "exciting" doesn't mean six-month-old technology.

    People were saying this a month ago now. I'm getting bored and impatient with waiting and will likely just go with an 822 if I don't hear anything by next week.

    I am due mid April for my upgrade so I will wait until the end of April. I must admit that I've started looking closer at the 822 again just in case this is all another disappointment for us WP users on Verizon.

    I'm thinking if it isn't announced soon I may give AT&T a try and get a 920.

    This is what I did. My red 920 comes tomorrow and my wife has already received her cyan 920. Both free at the MS store right now btw. I just got tired of all the rumors with nothing definitive. I know Verizon likes to keep a tight lip but sometimes I think they shoot themselves in the foot by being this way.

    I realize this varies by location but given your wife has already received her phone, how is the reception quality relative to Verizon? I don't live in a big city and I've had Verizon since I've lived here but AT&T recently added LTE service in this area so I may give them a try.

    Unfortunately for me at&t doesn't offer a plan that can compare with my current Verizon plan. My wife is only months into a new contract. I cant afford the penalty plus the extra monthly coat of a switch. Hopefully Verizon will come through.

    Well, we were with ATT up until about two years ago when Verizon first got the Droid and I switched then, moving my wife over to my plan last year. We're in OKC and we've had no problems with ATT in the past and with Verizon, it was excellent coverage as well.

    Just check their coverage maps and see where you fall. In all honesty, it's nice to be back on a GSM phone and get off a CDMA. We'll see in the coming weeks how reception is but I don't anticipate any problems. I'm getting four bars of LTE coverage right now and I'm in a northern suburb and not even close to the city center so at least at my house, the coverage is very good.

    I think with ATT or Verizon, you really can't go wrong with coverage. Tmobile and Sprint seem to be more sparse especially out in rural areas.

    I gotta be honest here, the 920 blows away the Trohpy even as good as it was. The 920 just feels so good in the hand and truly has that premium feel to as any flagship should. I expect no less out of the 928. It's just a shame that it's taking Verizon so long. Phone geeks like myself are an impatient bunch!

    I've owned the Trophy, the 822 and now an 8X. Both the 822 and the 8X easily blow away the Trophy and I would expect the 920 and 928 to do the same.

    To be honest, Trophy never was more than a mediocre, (got mine on launch day) mid-range phone, and while I haven't put hands on any of the low-end Lumias, I'm going to say that I'd bet even the lowest-end Lumia would blow away the Trophy.

    Don't get me wrong - I was glad to have it, being the only WP7 on VZW, but it was never anything to blow you away.

    Totally agree. Also I had several Trophys and it was easily the worst phone I've ever had for reception.

    The Trophy may not be sexy or exciting but it has been a solid dependable workhorse for me. It never freezes or needs restarts. I have had great reception with it. Its a solid phone that has survived a few rough drops. That being said I cant wait to replace it with a shiny new 928!

    Yep, ole reliable for sure. Never had a lick of problems with the Trophy, got two days out of a battery, and it did everything I needed it to do. It just wasn't sexy by no means.

    I do miss the Zune interface. I honestly felt that Zune players and the software itself got a really bad rap. I have a much easier time using that software than I ever have iTunes and it doesn't prompt me to install a new version every time I boot it up like iTunes nor does it try to backdoor other software either.

    Is this thing VZW only? Any indication of AT&T availability?

    Verizon exclusive. As far as I know there won't be a 928 outside the U.S. at all.

    If the xenon flash on the 928 is dialed in.. I will take it over the 920 without even thinking about it. Performance wise they will be almost identical..

    The microphone of Lumia 928 is at the bottom of the screen,while that on Lumia 920 is at the bottom side of the phone.

    Personally, I am giving Verizon/Nokia until their announcement. If no flagship Lumia is announced, I will go for the GS4. I considered the 822, but just did not appeal to me. I have to stick with Verizon due to their coverage blows AT&T out of the water. I truly hope we will see something early next month.

    Where did you hear that? Did they release something? Because if not, that is all speculation because no one really knows unless they are breaching their NDA's with Verizon.
