    I decided that I could live with the yellowish capacitive buttons (though it definitely is a slight annoyance), but my real issue is with the (non-call) audio. Not only does the phone occasionally emit a single, quiet "pop" when I'm not using it, there is a significant amount of static/white noise underneath all system sounds and media playback. If, for example, I swipe up on my lock screen to unlock, my phone will play the unlock sound, but then static will continue for about two seconds before shutting off.

    This occurs whether I have headphones in or am using the rear speaker. Anyone else having this issue? I thought at first that maybe the rear speaker just wasn't that great on this phone, but I'm becoming more convinced that this is a unit-specific defect, and that I should seek a replacement.
    On my phone, I can't hear the white noise unless I put my ear against the speaker so it's not an issue for me. My big issue is that single, quiet pop noise that you are getting too. Do you think we both got defective speakers? Anyone else having this too?

    After hard reseting my phone due to issues of randomly shutting off,
    -I now also have an issue when my earbuds are plugged in and the volume starts to flicker from 2 and 3 really quickly then randomly starts increasing to 9 then to volume 12 (which forcing the volume/music popup to be stuck on the screen), I soft reset it then change the volume back to 2, I soft reset again and its back to 12.

    -My speakers randomly make quiet popping sounds like the post above stated

    -Also when I tap my phone on the JBL Powerup speaker occasionally it just randomly causes my phone to reboot.

    I want to love this phone, but its getting frustrating that the problems become worse after doing a hard reset (which also took 3 hours stuck on moving gears and would only become fixed after removing the sim card and rebooting the phone.

    In response to low light shots, I had a unimpressive first couple of shots as well. I've noticed the shots come out much better if you sit still and hold the shutter button down until the shot is complete. OIS helps with the exposure but having a steady hand will ensure you don't blur your results.

    Take a look at the pics with your 928 thread. Lots of good info in that thread.
    Thanks for the responses guys. I took some more shots yesterday and I am still unimpressed. I will keep reading and keep trying. I tried to play around with ISO and exposure but it seems that I still have to invest more time to get better results.

    photo.jpgSo my screen has this weird what looks like a smudge on the screen but when I wipe it it doesn't go away! I had a bigger one on my 928 that I got last week and returned it to Verizon. They gave me a new one and it was fine but all of the sudden same thing! How do I get rid of it? It's really bugging me even though it's small. If I wipe it when a microfiber cloth it goes away but the second there is finger smudge over it, it shows plain of day.

    Did you get a replacement phone? If the phone takes so long to reset then I would go get a replacement. I wasn't so concerned about the popping noise but it is starting to get on my nerves. I'm thinking of getting a replacement just for it but then I'm concerned the replacement would have more issues.

    My loudspeaker now distorts audio past 25/30. I know I shouldn't listen to it at 30, but my trophy always went to 30 without any problems for 2 years. I don't want to trade mine in though cause I haven't had any of the defects listed in this thread.

    Can't see the image, but sounds like what I have. I think it's caused by a defect in application of the Clearblack layer of the screen. Really visible and irritating in daylight.

    I have a really annoying problem with my phone receiving messages 2-3 times. It doesn't do it to every message, just random ones. Its extremely annoying. I've already powered down my phone, and did a soft reset. I'm trying to avoid a hard reset so I don't lose all my stuff. Any suggestions?

    Is anyone else having issues sending specific characters via text?
    For some reason when I send a text message a character will send to someone else as a different character...
    2 I have noticed; I will send "^" or "~" and they show up as ",," and ",=" to someone else....I get them fine when they send them to me, but when I send they don't send correctly.
    Also, when I try to send texts or pics, sometimes it tells me I fail to send and to retry(I have bars or am on wifi when this happens, so it shouldn't be an issue), so I click the retry and it won't go through...I usually have to retype the message then it sends just fine...just a bit of an inconvenience. ):
    Is the first one something I have to wait for an update for? Or is it just my phone? /:
    Thanks.

    Edit: I have both hard reset and soft reset and it still happens, so yeah.

    only a few are universal across platforms I think. If sending to other nokias, it should probably come up as what you sent.

    BATTERY HOG. disaster After 2 weeks with my Lumia 928 Im done, going back to android or apple. Any app download(or app update) or even changing my settings from using wifi to turning it off can trigger (like this morning) a 12.8%/per hr. battery discharge(Im talking standby mode here) and/or cause battery recharge issues. Im satisfied windows store apps are riddled with bugs and servers are not synching properly with apps. Your 1st clue is all these solution posts recommending hard of fast resets to save battery life on my phone , one VZ and Nokia promote a 17hrs of continuous battery usage, 21hrs standby (pure fiction). Try 3 hrs when something goes wrong and it will

    Recently the CEO of MS apologized for Windows 8; too late for this former windows user, I switched to Apple months ago for my desktop and I will never touch an MS product again. Too bad, when it works WP8 is a better platform that either android or ISO, but those actually function. I equate my WP8 experience with catching a virus on a windows desktop, latter no. 1 reason I switched to Mac brand. Im not spending my time wondering when the next backing up data/hard reset or soft reset will come and it will.

    Hey guys my name is Chris, I think I found a bug in my Nokia Lumia 928 device. I also found a solution 😃. Anyways

    symptom : Internal speaker will stop working. When you make a call you can't hear anything but they will hear you just fine. Changing to loudspeaker you can hear everything just fine. Have not tries headphones or Bluetooth.

    Cause: If you recently played music through 3.5mm jack and change settings under (Options>audio>) if you touch the the two settings DD or audio normalization. The next hours or day you will stop receiving audio from the front. Restarting the phone will not fix it, holding volume and power key won't fix it either.

    Extra: Those two settings that I mention earlier should only be available if your phone is plugged via a 3.5mm however if you're experiencing this bug you can turn them off and on, even if those settings are suppose to be grey out because you are not connected to a 3.5mm cable.

    Solution: plug the 3.5mm cable back again, go to audio settings and change the settings on and off. This time when you unplug the cable those settings should "grey out".

    I had this issue more than once. The settings are under (Settings>Audio>enhancements)

    I don't know that this a 928 defect or just how WP8 works but didn't know where else to post this.

    I was trying to upload my pics to Skydrive that way I can delete them off my phone to free up memory. However, it seems that everytime I try to do that its eating my memory. Now I have no free space. I don't understand. When I would upload pics Google Drive I never had this issue. I thought SkyDrive was cloud based. Why is it using up memory?

    Ummmm.... no.
    The Sprint Arrive was returned because Sprint's coverage where I live is horrible (step-daughter still uses one - she insists on a hardware keyboard, and is willing to trade dropped calls for a hardware keyboard). The Samsung Focus was sold (was one of three that were free from Microsoft for writing apps) because ATT's coverage isn't any better. I used the Trophy from day one of Trophy until day one of Lumia 822 on Verizon, and I got it free. The 822 I used from day one of 822 until day one of 928, which I got a better than average (at the time) deal on. My wife now uses the 822 since I upgraded to the 928. And on day one that 102x is available on Verizon, I'll be switching to that and my wife will get the 928. Then I will be out of upgrades and will use the 102x for a while.

    Don't presume that you know anything at all about my situation. Thank you.

    Two things I've noticed. The camera seems to be "late" taking pictures. When it makes the shutter sound, it doesn't actually take the picture for like a half second/second later.

    Speaker volume seems to go up and down. I have a bicycle mount that I play music when I ride. The volume will get quiet, then loud... then quiet.. then loud. It never seems to do it other then those times.. Very weird.

    Ahhh I see your problem! It seems as though you have already made up your mind before you bought it. I'd recommend some Apple for you!

    Update issues? not sure. Yest. I was unable to save a panorama shot to camera roll nor able to download photosynth app. This morning I was able to do both and I didn't do anything different today from yesterday that I know of. Maybe soft reset I did solved issue maybe phone updated during night, don't know? Either way both features work fine now. Some advice for those of you coming from Android. I'd stick to Nokia apps when possible, they are few but they work great. I use nav apps a lot and I haven't found a decent third party nav app yet quite the opposite. The Nokia ones work great. Also for VZ customers, do NOT call VZ tech support. The only answer they know is hard reset(last resort, like wiping out hard drive on PC if you don't know). Id stick to these windows mobile forums or even call Nokia direct. Honestly I know more about this phone after 3 weeks of using it than the VZ tech support rep I dealt with did, hard reset, hard reset is all she could tell me. Battery issues: keep car charger, it is must. Nav, music or game apps will eat my phones battery quick, 9 to 11% drainage in 19 minutes . That said car charger and reg. one at home takes care of that issue for me. Other issue I've run across audio drops sometimes during a call, only last a few seconds then audio comes back, does not happen very often but does. Sounds like software issue. On VZ Nokia forum quite a few posts on this issue, problems were much worse last yr. Didn't see any current posts on this issue which is good., maybe they fixed it by now. All that said the very powerful, quick, user friendly W8 platform takes awesome photos,5 star music audio on the cool looking 928.

    PS Servers update every 30 minutes or so on WP8 .I think. A soft reset will keep your phone current .

    I've been having tons of problems with my messaging. There was one time where I got a reply, saw it on the messaging live tile, but then went to messaging and it was gone. And that's only the time I've known about it. I wouldn't be surprised if there were other times this happened and I didn't realize. It seems like a lot of conversations just aren't happening with people. Another thing is I know for certain one time I sent a message, it said it sent, but having talked to the intended recipient, he never received it. I just don't know how a phone can do that. Another small issue is that I've had multiple text messages (from being too long) come in, but in the wrong order. Just a minor annoyance.

    A few non-messaging related things, I very often seem to accidentally restart my phone. I'll throw it in my pocket and then I'll feel it vibrate and it's rebooting.

    There was one time when I had 50%+ battery recording some things on a Word document, and my phone just died. No way to turn it back on. When I got back to plug it in, it worked again. This has only happened once (luckily) but it was very strange and could have been a lot worse if I didn't have access to a charger.

    I don't know if I'll end up keeping it. Unfortunately I'm past the 14 days or whatever so I'm sure there will be plenty of problems trying to get any sort of good agreement about what to do with Verizon

    Here's the problem in having with my 928. I use it mostly for texting and social media. Email, but mainly reading and rarely responding.

    My problem is this...i have yet to figure out what to do with the loads of free time I've got from not having to launch app after app just to see fb and twitter. I keep looking at my phone only to realize that I've already checked it.

    If anyone has ideas on how to properly manage my newly found free time, do tell!

    I would have to wonder if there is an app to help people find new hobbies to spend their new free time on...

    EDIT:
    Turns out there is. With no reviews, I don't know how good it is, but you could use the trial.

    Sounds like an issue with the network, and not the phone.
