The Nokia Lumia 928 is looking to be a solid device, well, so far as the camera is concerned. It is also looking to take better pictures than the Lumia 920 despite having the same 8.7-megapixel camera, so why is that? It's all about Xenon flash.
When you look at the Lumia 928 and the Lumia 920 side-by-side, the only differences you might see is how thin one device is compared to the other, and if you should ever hold both handsets in your hand, the Lumia 928 should come out as the less heavy device compared to the Lumia 920. Nokia claims it is 12.5 percent lighter than the Lumia 920. Whether or not that is enough to please smartphone users is yet to be seen.
One key difference between the Lumia 928 and Lumia 920 is the camera of Lumia 928 and what it can do. The specs on both the Lumia 928 and the Lumia 920 is the same until you take into consideration the Xenon flash found on the Lumia 928. This allows the device to take better images compared to Lumia 920, especially under low-light scenery and where things are very blurry. For example, due to having Xenon flash onboard, the Nokia Lumia 928 is able to freeze the motion of a spinning fan blade; the Lumia 920 is unable to do that.
If you look at the images from MyNokiaBlog, you'll see what we're on about. As it stands, the Lumia 928 could be a worthy upgrade if you are obsessed with camera quality and the weight of your smartphone. If not, the Lumia 920 will suffice. Then again, if you are a Verizon Wireless customer, the Lumia 928 would be your only choice.
We should learn more of this device come May 14, which is just one day away. Hopefully, Nokia will highlight that Windows Phone 8 device with its rumored 41-megapixel camera, - it would surely steal the show.
