    Is it worth getting the 928. I played with it, its just a blown up version of my 8x. But, don't get me wrong, I like the extra bulkiness. Opinions and reviews from people who already have the phone. Should I just save my upgrade and keep my 8x until another release or try it out?

    Honestly that depends.

    The Nokia 928 has these over the 8X:
    Nokia Exclusive apps like Drive and City Lens
    Clearback screen
    Super Sensitive Screen
    0.2" larger screen
    Slightly larger better
    32GB internal storage
    Nokia Pureview Camera
    Optical Image Stabilization
    Will get more features with the GDR2 update, "Amber" for Lumias
    Seems to have a handful more pixels

    The AMOLED I suppose is up in the air, supposed to use less power.

    Both have wireless charging (8X only on VZW for that feature)
    Both have the same CPU and CPU

    The HTC has Beats Audio and slightly higher PPI on the screen

    Just have to weigh in if those are worth it, or save the upgrade for a better one in the future. The sales rep that sold me the 928 didn't know about the Super Sensitive screen or Clearback on the 928, he had the 8X, and seemed impressed with the phone compared to his.

    Verizon isn't likely to get any new windows phones for a while, even with new releases from nokia. New EOS is rumored to release in about 4-6 months from now for ATT and won't likely be on Verizon for another 6 months. So if you are a diehard windows phone fan and have an upgrade available I say use it for the increased storage, camera capabilities, nokia apps on the 928.

    I went from the 8x to the 928, but was able to use an company upgrade
    (we have a lot of extras so I can always upgrade when the next one comes out) so I didn't have to pay full retail absolutely love it, but I don't think I would have made the switch at $500. The 8x is a great phone, and while there are some nice Lumia exclusives, the gap is nowhere near what it was when I got my 8x at launch. Given that you seem to have an upgrade, I'd probably just wait and see what is coming next so you don't get locked in to 2 year contract.

    928 PROS:
    Camera (though the 8x takes pretty good pictures)
    Nokia exclusives (not as big a deal anymore - HERE applications are pretty much the same now for the 8x as for 928)
    FM radio when GDR2 is released
    Battery Life seems to be better
    More storage
    Build quality is outstanding
    Manufacturer support

    8x PROS
    Beats Audio makes the 8x the best phone I've ever heard (truly miss this)
    Slim design

    The camera alone on the 928 in my opinion is worth the upgrade but if photos aren't important then stick with the 8X.

    If you "need" it, get it. The GDR2 update should bring new WPs though, so......

    I love my 8X with its awesome screen and audio (Yay Beats!!!).. I'd wait.

    I am digging the aluminum on that 925, and hmmm.. May eat my words after I see pricing. But, it needs to be frickin awesome
