    A lot of this you can find with a simple google or bing search. Comes in black and white, only on Verizon. The 928 is essentially a Lumia 920 variant, which is available on AT&T. Main differences from the 920 are xenon flash, slightly thinner & lighter, different design and OLED screen. Everything is just about the same. Camera and audio recording are maybe slightly improved.

    Edit: and yes, this is a flagship phone.

    The 928 is only available on Verizon. Are you staying with AT&T, or switching carriers? If you aren't switching, the 920 is still a flagship device. The 928 is pretty much the same device as the 920, with only some minor differences like the xenon flash, AMOLED screen, slight body shape differences, and some software/audio/camera tweaks. They're both running the same version of the OS, and are configured with the same processor/memory.

    Yeah I have to stay with att at the moment. I've heard windows phones don't have great app selection, is that true? Also is the os as open as android such as customizing or is it more like apples iOS?

    It not as large as Apple and Android, but it's large enough. Check for your self: Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    WP is about speed, fluidity, ease of use, UI consistency, stability and reliability and good OS software support (particularly Nokia devices).

    That is obviously closer to iOS than the mess that is Android.

    Wasn't on my list, so no, not a major focus of WP.

    What you can customize really well are the live tiles, but little more. I see that as a benefit, because it emphasizes consistency and also helps with software stability, but depending on your needs you may disagree.

    There is an android app that will tell you the apps on your android device that are available on Windows Phones. The majority of the so called top 100 apps that are on iOS and Android are on Windows Phone. That is something that you would have to look up to see what apps are important to you and see if the app exists or if there is a comparable 3rd party app. Windows Phone is not an open OS such as Android and is not about customization.

    Look OP.

    Dont even waste another thought on this phone. You are stuck on AT&T ( unless this is the end of your contract ). The apps questions has been answered more times than can count. No it doesn't have the A BAZILLION apps. It has functional useful every day apps. If you looking for Candy Crush saga stick with Android.

    As far as customization NO not to the extent as Android. You have tiles you make them bigger or smaller or move them from the top to the bottom.

    Keep your S4 and wait until there is a 928 for At&t.
