$100 Nokia Lumia 928 brings it

Phones
AT&T has the Nokia Lumia 920, T-Mobile has the 925, and Verizon has the Nokia Lumia 928. I'm Jessica Dolcourt for CNET. Here's your first look. Now the Nokia Lumia 928 is a Windows 8 phone like all of the rest. It's got the live tiles on the front and you can drag and drop to rearrange. What's interesting about this phone and differentiates it from the other ones is the design. So it's a little bit slimmer than the 920. It's thicker than the 925. It's got these sharp, flat sides, 90-degree angles. So, it has a more aggressive look than perhaps the more bubbly 920. There is a slight curve in the back so it's comfortable to hold. Although it is a little bit slimmer than the 920, it's still pretty heavy. It's hefty. I don't always mind that because it tells me there's something substantial in my hand, but those looking for a very lightweight phone will not find it here. There are no bright colors with the 928, instead you get black or white varieties. Like other Lumia phones, this one is completely sealed. You've got your micro SIM card slot up at the top. There's no micro-SD card slot though, but internal storage is 32 gigabytes of memory. Another Nokia claimed to fame is the camera, or so they say. They've got Carl Zeiss technology, the Pureview algorithms, and what's interesting on this 8.7-megapixel camera is the Xenon flash that accompanies the LED flash. So you've got still dual flash here, but the Xenon is said to be much brighter. I did find that photo quality was really nice, and it has shots that I took even the low light photos. Nokia is proud of those LED light pictures, and they are very good. This Lumia 928 also has the typical Nokia screen, which is very nice. This one is an AMOLED, the 920 which uses an LCD technology display. 4.5 inches. It's got the clear black filter on top, which cuts down glare when you read it outside. Really nice, lush colors. It's very responsive. In fact, it is also a super sensitive screen so you can use it while wearing gloves. Like all other Nokia phones, Nokia's suite of apps is on here, including maps, driving directions, and music app, and plenty of extra camera features. Like all other high-end Nokia Lumia devices, this one comes with wireless charging built right in so you will not need to buy an extra back cover. The Nokia Lumia 928 goes on sale for $100 with a new 2-year contract. It is actually Verizon's most advanced Windows phone. So if you're looking for a topnotch Windows phone, this is it.
