Verizon Wireless (my wireless carrier of choice) has a pair of low-end Lumias at the surprising price of $0.99USD with a two-year agreement - either a new Lumia 928, or a certified pre-owned Lumia 822.  Which is the better match with Windows Phone 8.1 (which would go onto the winning phone when available)? (The very reason I have the CPO 822 in the mix is that VZW does actually do CPO well, and backs their CPO phones with warranties identical to those of new phones - therefore, the 822 being pre-owned isn't exactly a minus.)

If they are the same price, why not get the 928?

The 928 was the high end model before the icon.
