    Oh come on. This is the type of fanboyism I am trying to escape by leaving Android for this device.
    Sorry but there's fanboyism everywhere.

    Nope. If the keyboard is that important to you, you're going to have to stick with VirusPhone.
    Ohh common. Only reason WP doesn't have them really yet is because it's not big enough to be worth a hackers time. The changing in the future would be a good thing in a way. Even though it's bazaar saying it.

    I think thats partially true. Though I do believe Google should do more in this area. Ok, back on task guys... :)

    I call it like I see it. 96% of mobile malware in the last quarter of 2012 was on Android devices.
    it's more the attitude of "take it or leave it." god forbid someone want a feature he found useful in the past. also, you have 920 posts so i suggest you make 8 more post-haste.

    And I can almost guarantee that 100% of that 96% brought it onto themselves (being clueless counts). I had Android phones almost 4 years now (until my 8x and upcoming 928) and I've never had a single malware.

    While yes I have changed platforms and am quite happy by the way, Android gets way more grief than it deserves. A lot of the complaints are from at least 2 OS versions ago. But I digress...

    Am...no! The only reason WP doesn't have viruses, and may never have a large percentage of viruses occupying the store, is because all apps have to pass through Microsoft's QA first, and be tested, before they can be published to the store. I think you're confusing Windows, with Windows Phone. Windows has a woe of viruses because it is the most popular professional OS. Android isn't riddled with viruses because it's the most popular. It's riddled with viruses because anyone can publish anything to the store without worry, because Google has no approval process for their store. And I'm sure it's one of the reasons their app numbers climbed so fast.

    Someone asking about display refresh rate of Lumia 928. Yes it is 60Hz. Also, Lumia 928 records in mono as confirmed by Imaging head of Nokia, Juha.

    Can you hear the speaker clearly if it's sat on a table?

    The speaker is on the curved part & not facing direct down. So yes you still can hear it.

    If you had an understanding of the security model of Windows Phone, you would understand why this is a false statement.

And I'm sure it's one of the reasons their app numbers climbed so fast.
    There's that, but there's also the security model that WP employs. With apps sandboxed, one app cannot grab another app's data without that data being explicitly published for access by the app that owns the data. Additionally, you can't do much of anything in the OS itself without explicit permission of the user. For instance, you can't write an app that sends endless premium text messages, because each time an app tries to send a text message, the user gets a messagebox asking whether to allow the app to send a message. Same with phone calls.....

    Can you hear the speaker clearly if it's sat on a table?
    I read somewhere else that it was on the rounded part of the phone and sounded very good on a table. If you think about it, setting it on the table could actually improve the sound by using the table to redirect or spread that sound.

    This. They added an extra lens to increase sharpness and clarity in the 925, but not the 928? What could possibly be the reason for that?

    The speaker is designed so that when placed flat on a table it enhances the bass. In theory it should sound even better when sat on a table.

    Is the display RGB or Pentie? (if its pentile you should be able to tell by switching the theme between green and red and looking at the edges of the live tiles, there will be a checkerboard effect on the edges in red that isn't there in green due to pentile having 1/2 red and blue resolution)

    if the issue of dust collection on the front facing camera is resolved, can i exchange my phone if i am still in warranty ? is this issue resolved in newer 920?
    thanks in advance.

    I don't have the refresh rate information for you, but I can confirm it is an AMOLED not LCD display.


    I believe there was a fix to the 920 to solve this issue a while back. I will say that this was on our radar during development of the 928.

    Odin is right on with this. The sound comes out on the curved surface and is not blocked by the table. The speaker is one of the features I have grown to love about this phone. With previous phones I always looked for an aux cable if I wanted to play music, now I can just crank the volume :)

    I do not know but some people are reporting ~$500

    Schedule would be my guess, not worth the delay. Sorry I don't have special insight on this so I am speculating.

    I am pretty sure it is pentile but when performing your test above I don't see a checkerboard pattern, I think this is much more evident in the 800x480 resolution OLED windows phones. You should get a 928 in your hands and take a look, the display is really nice. Also want to add that if you have not gotten a chance to try a Nokia display with ClearBlack out in the sun you need to do that as well; I was blown away when I switched from my iPhone and could actually use the phone outdoors (not to mention Windows Phone 8's Sunlight Readability Enhancement option you can turn on!)

    thanks in advance.
    This is a question for the 920 forum but I am pretty sure the answer is yes. If you have dust under your FFC and are under warranty I imagine you should be able to get your phone repaired/replaced under warranty through your carrier or Nokia Care. The newer 920 do indeed have a fix for the dust issue.

    I thought there was Swype for WP 7 ? I am a die hard Swype fan and can't imagine having to actually type a text.
    I used swype for two years on my windows mobile omnia II and was dissapointed when It wasn't available on WP7, but I quickly adapted with the Trophy. With predictive typing you rarely have to finish a word and it seems to have improved with WP8 (based on my wife & kids 822's). I'm as fast or faster than I was with swype. Looking forward to getting the 928.
