Engadget Summary

Nokia's Lumia 928 follows in the footsteps of the Lumia 920, with wireless charging capabilities, good call quality, and one of the best cameras available on any smartphone. It's also priced very competitively, at $99 with a two-year Verizon Wireless contract. However, compared to current flagship smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One, the 928 has a tough time keeping up, and the Windows Phone operating system still lags both Android and iOS when it comes to app support. PC Mag calls the 928 "the best Windows Phone yet," but points out that, at 5.71 ounces, it's heavier than both the iPhone 5 and the Galaxy S4, "which is not only lighter, but has a much bigger screen." ZDNet considers the 928 "the best Windows Phone currently available in the US," and says its camera makes it an "excellent choice" if you "want to replace a point and shoot with your smartphone." That could be reason enough to choose the 928 over some competitors, though, as PC Mag says, you should also be a fan of Windows Phone, and not "care so much about apps."
