With the CTIA Wireless trade show just around the corner, the hype about Nokia’s Lumia 928 smartphone is at an all time high!
Consumers are excited to test the changes on this smartphone compared to Nokia’s previous model, the Lumia 920.
Although the Lumia 928 is thinner and significantly lighter compared to the previous model, it is still reported to be chunkier than what a lot of consumers desire.
Nokia stepped up the design and diverted away from the IPS screen used on earlier models. The Lumia 928 sports a 4.7inch AMOLDED screen, which is one of the largest screens in the Lumia line but gives space for a larger, 2000mAh battery. An AMOLED instead of LCD screen will improve overall battery life and contrast.
Was design for disassembly a factor in the making of this new smartphone?
Well, Nokia manufactures were able to remove two of three flex cables and fused the glass, digitizer and LCD display together. The downside to this is when it comes to repairing and replacing parts. The sealed phone makes it difficult for the average consumer to replace or repair parts.
As with any introduction of a newer, innovative smartphone, electronics recyclers must continue to stay ahead of game. With so many models on the market, electronics recyclers are constantly looking for the best way to recycle, refurbish and dispose these smartphones to diminish the growing stream of harmful e-waste.
