Windows Phone all the way

The 928 is Verizon's most powerful Windows Phone 8 offering, alongside the slightly stepped-down Lumia 822.

A standup device

With its flat sides, the Lumia 928 can stand all on its own.

Flash me

A xenon flash replaces LED on this high-tech handset, which Nokia claims will take even clearer photos in low-light situations.

Unibody design

Like all other Lumia handsets, this 928 features a unibody design made from polycarbonate materials. You see the raised buttons for power, volume, and the camera shutter here on the phone's right spine.

Harnessing 4G

Navigate like you mean it

As with all Windows phones, the 928's Back, Home, and Search buttons below the display often do double duty, like to pull up multitasking and voice search commands.
