#CarpeLumia party!

We had an awesome party at the beach. Overnight camping, hanging out with the girls, fireworks, bonfire, great Nokia swag bags, playing with the new #NokiaLumia928!  We got to the beach at sunset and had fun checking out the camera capabilities of the Nokia Lumia 928.  We had hotdogs and smores, plenty of sodas and hot chocolate. The next morning we passed out the swag, awarded the photo competition winner her prize, and jammed on the tunes from the awesome Nokia Lumia 928 and the JBL wireless speaker.

To show of the Nokia Lumia 928, we had a little photo competition. Everyone who wanted to participate took the Lumia 928 and their own phone and took two pictures.  We uploaded them onto my laptop and projected them onto the side of an RV for comparison.  One thing we noticed in every photo has how much clearer the images were on the Lumia, even in low light. Check out a few of our finalists.

And, by unanimous decision, the winner of the photo contest, based both on content and dramatic difference between their phone and the Nokia Lumia 928....

Don't you just love how much richer the tones of the photo are with the Nokia Lumia 928?  The sunset is brighter, the boats are clearer. LOVE it!

Here is a picture of me and the winner, with her prize, a JBL PowerUp Wireless Charging Speaker!! 

Overall, I really love the photo capabilities of the Nokia Lumia 928.  There are also other amazing features, such as City lens, distortion free sound recording, wireless charging, Nokia Music, all with the fun display of a Windows 8 phone.

I received the Nokia Lumia 928 free of charge from Verizon, as a Verizon VIP on Crowdtap.  All opinions stated are my own. I was not required to give a positive review. Want to become a Verizon VIP? Check out

Crowdtap Nokia Lumia 928 Hosted Party

I am lucky enough to be a member of Crowdtap, a website where consumers can interact with Brands they love.  Through Crowdtap and Verizon Insiders, I was chosen to host a "Carpe Noctem" branded party for the new Nokia Lumia 928.  In exchange for having a few friends over to check out the amazing capabilities of this new Windows 8 phone, including the nightlife-inhancing camera.  For this party I was sent 1 active Nokia Lumia 928 that my guests and I can use.  It had 30 days of service free from Verizon, so that my guests and I can truly experience this revolutionary new phone. My party kid also included 1 $50 prepaid American Express gift card to help with party costs, 1 JBL PowerUp wireless charging speaker for Nokia, and 10 branded swag bags filled with loot for party guests.  In exchange I am to host an evening/nighttime party and allow guests to use the Nokia Lumia 928, highlighting it's better imaging, better sound, and better display & design. I am also to provide honest, unbiased feedback regarding this device, and share my thoughts via social media.  All party guests can enter the Nokia Lumia 928 sweepstakes to win one of their very own!

Stay tuned for more after I spend more time with my phone and host my party!  I am so excited to share this phone and it's capabilities with you!
