An incredible PureView camera is the centerpiece of the Nokia Lumia 928, but its not the only amazing feature you’ll find. Powered by the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ processor, the 928 is designed to have all the muscle it needs to run the latest Windows Phone 8 operating system without a hiccup, while taking some of the most incredible photos you’ve seen from a smartphone.

The 4.5-inch screen isn't just spacious (1280x768 resolution display showcases video in near-high-definition quality), it's also cutting edge. Using AMOLED "organic LED" technology to power the screen, you'll get incredibly accurate and vivid colors along with dazzling brightness.

The 928's impressive 8.7-megapixel PureView camera includes a Carl Zeiss lens, built by one of the leaders of the photographic products industry. Under the hood, optical image stabilization means your shots will come out crisp and blur-free, even when you're shooting on the run. The unique design of the PureView camera takes in more light than most other camera phone sensors, which means you'll get the best possible shots even when lighting conditions aren't perfect. Of course, the built-in xenon flash on the 928 means you can also give your surroundings a boost of illumination when you need it.

While you’re taking those awesome shots, don't overlook the way the Lumia 928 looks and feels in your hand. Unlike so many other phones, the Lumia drops sharp edges and corners for pillowed surfaces on the front and back that make it comfortable to hold in your hand, even for very long periods. The tough unibody design means it can withstand more than a few bumps and bruises, and the tough screen protects the front of the phone with scratch-resistant durability.

Nokia's Lumia 928 was built with entertainment in mind, and that doesn't just mean high-end video. It's also equipped with both a digital amplifier and a high-performance loudspeaker that give it great audio clarity and, of course, loudness. Whether you're spinning tunes for a get-together or just want a better speakerphone, the Lumia 928's built-in speaker means you'll hear every word.

Speaking of music, finding something good to listen to is no problem with the Lumia 928. The built-in music app Nokia Music with Mix Radio lets you play music for free, with no subscription, right out of the box. You can even store up to 12 hours of music directly on your phone.

The Nokia Lumia 928 is available exclusively at Verizon Wireless and takes full advantage of their lightning fast 4G LTE network - check it out today.
