    I have the 8X and have been disappointed in the battery life. Hoping this device will offer longer lasting life

    Lol. The phone is ugly. My opinion. Saying a phone is ugly doesn't make my comments an ugly comment or inappropriate. You claim opinions are subjective, but then want anyone making a negative one to shut up? Double standard much? Do you know what the word subjective means?

    It's just some people are so obsessed with their phones and their brand loyalty, any sort of negativity or criticism is seen as a threat. Making up lame assumptions and generalizations, like critics are just jealous 920 owners, is really juvenile.

    I love the high moral ground some people are claiming.
    No I don't and yes I do.

    First, I'm not like that. I've never even owned a nokia or windows phone. I'm open to constructive criticism.
    Most of the comments I see on phones being ugly (not just the lumia 928, or nokia phones, but all phones) are pretty useless and really doesn't do anything to add to a discussion. I think it's rather superficial and dumb when you see comments like "that's so ugly. not buying," which are pretty common.

    Thanks for judging my character based on one forum post, insinuating that I believe I'm on a higher moral ground and my intelligence. I appreciate it.

    *By "ugly comments," I don't mean ugly or inappropriate. I mean comments just stating they're ugly.

    As far as specs go, we're expecting the phone to have the same 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 32GB of storage, and 1GB of RAM as the 920. However, it should be a little thinner — , at 10.2 millimeters compared to the 920's 10.7, and should feel lighter, as well. It should also ditch the 920's LCD display for a 4.5-inch OLED one, and support simultaneous voice and data over LTE. While Nokia CEO Steven Elop might not have wanted to answer questions about the phone on Finnish TV last month, electing to throw the host's iPhone across the room instead, we should have answers soon — we're expecting the Lumia 928 to be released later this month.

    Update: The Verge can confirm that the image is in fact genuine. We understand that Verizon is still planning to unveil the handset this month, but that the company will not be using an aluminum frame for this particular device as originally reported. Nokia is said to be using a thinner polycarbonate on the Lumia 928, reserving its aluminum frames for future Lumia devices including the EOS and Catwalk. The Lumia 928 will be slightly thinner than the Lumia 920, measuring 10.2mm at its thinnest point and 11.2mm at its thickest with a slightly curved back. The Lumia 928 also sports a 4.5-inch OLED display and support for simultaneous voice and LTE (SVLTE).

    Question: does anyone know how OLED's stack up against LCD's in color accuracy, Contrast ratio, and black levels?

    I think OLED is more saturated but less natural. while LCD is more natural then Saturated

    The funny part of all this is, This image is quoted as being a "markup" and is very much subject to change before release. I'm sure it will be close but, might not be exact...

    And everyone is giving an opinion of being a final product...

    Yay! Now for a release date.... I tried a HTC 8x before returning it for an iPhone 5... I loved it, but battery life was a deal killer. Trying a Blackberry Z10 now and hoping this is released before my 30 Day return policy is up. If so, the BB might be going back. :-)

    Yeah I'm using a 8X and the battery life is less than stellar. I like the OS and like to see it through but...... If the phone can't make it 12 hours than what's the good

    Wait, the girl-in-the-amusement-park-with-a-white-928 images we saw a couple of weeks back showed a phone with a camera on the top left (mirrored) corner.

    These images have it back in the center.

    So what was that all about?

    My 8X was at 65% after 15 hours yesterday. Took it off the charge at 8AM, laid it on the pad at 11PM. Weather Flow syncing every hour, WPCentral, Weave and Engadget all syncing at whatever stock interval, Gmail and Hotmail set to push.

    Anyway, I really want this phone. I wanted a Nokia but I really hate the 822 and I think the 920/900 are huge and ugly. This appears to be a slightly bigger, high end version of the 720, which is fine with me.
    EDIT: Just did an image search for the 720. The back contour looks exactly the same. Stoked for this!

    Hopefully VZW launches the Nokia Qi car charger at the same time.

    3 options:
    1) fake
    2) different exterior in order to keep final design secret whilst allowing public testing
    3) not the 928

    You really have something funky going on there. My 8X went about 18 hours yesterday, push mail all day on 2 accounts and a few apps running in the background. Moderate usage during the day, a few calls and a few quick games, When I put it on the charger, I still had almost 55% left...

    xenon flash looks fake too me….
    looks like photoshopped lumia 810,920 n 8x….
    also the plate behind the camera reads “Pureview” I doubt why does’nt 920 has this!

    Many people wont like this branding to 928 rather than 920!

    Lets wait a few days and know whats cooking ;)

    The reason behind 920s weight is the polycarbonate housing + OIS + the material used ( what other OEMs use is cheap n non durable)

    I wish my 8X got close to that in battery life. Mine is usually good for around eight hours. I tend to use it a lot though. I've never had a smartphone do much better so I'm OK with it.


    If the 928 full retail price is the same as the 920 I'll probably try to get it off contract. I seriously doubt Verizon will sell the 928 as cheap as the 920 is being sold though.

    Well for one, it is a totally new platform. I tried the z10 at my AT&T store, and it is cool, but doesn't blow my mind away. I'll probably get a BB11 device when those come out (without contract of course, I like WP better).

    Oh. :/ I hope the OLED part isn't true then, has I like my displays to be has accurate has possible (though, I doubt it will be has saturated has the GS4's green screen).

    I hope it stays true to the Lumia 920's color acuraccy. Or get's closer to the HTC one's/Xperia Z's.

    Or maybe this will finally become available at some point, and then you can correct it yourself: A forthcoming Nokia update will allow Lumia 920 users to change their display colors for the first time | Windows Phone Central

    Pretty much everything EvLeaks has posted is true. Sometimes it isn't 100% what it is, as it isn't a picture of the phone, but it is pretty much what the phone is. Name one EvLeaks for WP recently that has been false.

    NOTE: I am not saying these are leaks. This guy makes renders of windows phones all the time. Just thought it was interesting to look at.
