Nokia Lumia 928 With Windows Phone 8 – This Phone Is Awesome!!

I have owned a lot of phones since 1986, in that time not one of them could hold a candle to this phone. I was skeptical at first since I have owned Windows phones in the past and all were disappointing. Windows 8 in it’s default form, is disappointing but Windows Phone 8 does exactly what it’s supposed to do, VERY quickly. Windows 8, when tweaked to have a Start Menu using a utility like Classic Shell where you can create an environment like Windows 7 but get the enhancements that Windows 8 brings to the table so you’ll have the best of both. Windows 8 without a Start Menu, doesn’t belong on a standard PC, period and Microsoft knows it, hopefully Windows 8 Blue coming out later this year addresses it, they haven’t finalized what will be included (they hint at a start button, but not the menu) but they have said it will be free to those who have Windows 8, we’ll see.

I digress, this isn’t a tech blog so I’ll get back to the phone. For business use this phone is unreal, we use Office365 and the two were meant to work together so everything works as it should. Shared spreadsheets and documents from our SharePoint site load instantly and Outlook is fantastic.

The only thing lacking are the hundreds of thousands of apps that Android and iOS have but then I don’t install a lot of junk and every app I have needed I have found. Since Windows Phone 8 is getting better phones like the Lumia 928, more apps are coming out.

I’ll find out quickly enough how well this works for personal use but for now I’ll call it a home run. Smile

I write my posts first and foremost for me and my wife to track things, not to entertain people. If I never get comments it won't affect my day however the fact that people to comment is nice, if they don't that's ok too.

The fact you keep coming back is proof you can't stay away so bite me.

The iPhone has lost so much market share it's not funny. I'm not saying it's bad but it hasn't changed much since it came out, the look and feel is still the same.

Maybe thats a good thing, however I'm happy with my new phone and I couldn't say that when I owned an iPhone but that's just my opinion.

You like the iPhone mommy and daddy bought you, good for you.

Yeah, be thankful you moved off of Android, Google just shit the bed with v7 of the Maps/Navigator that basically gutted a once extremely useful app.

Fortunately, I found a repository to get the older APK file from and manually roll it back to the latest v6 update and then turned off autoupdate to keep from getting screwed again.
