Ad for the LG Optimus G Pro makes fun of the Apple iPhone

0. phoneArena 23 Feb 2013, 15:16 posted on

You know the television commercial for the Apple iPhone that shows a line of kids being photographed to show off the panoramic capabilities of the iPhone camera? LG seemed to show off the feature on the Apple iPhone before showing what the LG Optimus G Pro can do; the difference between the iPhone's panoramic shot and the Picture taken by the LG Optimus G Pro is quite obvious and we have to say kudos to LG for coming up with the ad...

Are you sure you're not confusing the paint containers with feet? I don't see any standalone feet lying around, or children without feet o.o

Yeah you are right nobody is missing a foot or two in that picture... especially not the kid to the left -.-

I do not know where his foot/feet are, but he sure as h*** is missing one.

And no i did not mean to say that all of the paint containers are feet, i was talking in general about photo sphere. for now photo sphere is a gimmick it does not work probably. I have a nexus 4 and i have tried photo sphere. Unless your extremely good at taking picture you will get a picture or two wrong in photo sphere. And the commercial illustrate that.

The only thing I can think someone may see as missing is the kid at the end jumping/skipping

Because there is an endless amount of material to work with.
- shoddy construction
- slave labor
- buggy OS
- apple maps
- overpriced
- condescending CEO
- refusal to listen to customer wants
- apple

- patent wars BS.
- banning competitor products
- overhyped
- No native YouTube app

Photo Sphere looked cool when it debuted, and then I tried it. Awkward and lackluster, at best. Someone should make a commercial that shows someone taking a Photo Sphere shot with only one word in the caption: "Why?"

LG has no room to poke fun at Apple. They wish they had Apple's profits.
