Nokia has enough flagship devices in the market that it can finally start competing with itself when it...

1) it is a free website
2) it is free because it is ad-supported and they get $ from OEMs for showing off their wares
3) Lumias are popular devices, if only for comparison purposes for hardcore fans of other OS options
4) They do the sake thing for other flagships, like all the galaxies, iphone, One, etc; Nokia launched two flagships for two different carriers that are different than each other (rather than one model on all carriers with minor under-the-hood differences like galaxy or iphone lines), hence more coverage and comparisons
5) Nokia deserves some spotlight here for its camera prowess and responding to customer and media feedback
6) You probably wouldn't have a cell phone without Nokia. It could still be something reserved for the Wall Street type to be always connected with their business, or other globetrotting types. They may not have come down in price or widespread availability without the competition and innovations Nokia brought to the table. Again, possibly, not certainty, as Siemens did a good amount as well, and other OEMs might have filled that void (but unlikely)
7) You can filter the homepage if it bothers you so much. There's other websites, too
8) or you could grow up, shut up, and move on, realizing it IS NOT THAT BIG OF A DEAL.

Your kidding. These two devices are ugly. No wonder nokia is flaking behind android, which is flaking real bad against apple. I think apples taking over

You have a bad taste, Mr. Angry Apple Customer.

Have you evolved past the primate stage yet or are you still waiting...
70. mafiaprinc3 (Posts: 254; Member since: 07 May 2012)
both devices are good looking and have two of the best camera's in the smartphone industry,
now if you have a cryphone, why don't you go listen some music and keep your nose of PA
37. WHoyton1 (Posts: 1616; Member since: 21 Feb 2013)
Awesome cameras and hardware its just the OS I struggle with...
40. WHoyton1 (Posts: 1616; Member since: 21 Feb 2013)
Yeh that but also the thing I do most on my android is customization and tweaking internals and stuff but on my WP i can't really do any of that customization, I mean I can change the size of tiles and the color of them but that's really it, don't get me wrong it's a beautiful looking OS but IMO it is more for first time users who don't do much heavy usage...however in some respects it's better but in many it still lags behind android...
47. papss (Posts: 2876; Member since: 03 Sep 2012)
I agree with most of that..but don't agree with the new users, of course it's great for new users but I've been an android guy since day one and while jumping to WP8 took some time to get used I find it refreshing and fast and most of all it feels right when using... Yeah so a thumbs up from me for a real honest post that wasn't fan boyish at all.
51. rahulz (Posts: 116; Member since: 25 Feb 2013)
Yes I also miss alot of features on WP8 which I had on android like customization,multi tasking is worse just like iOS,file manager,notification center,and some apps+games etc
hope some of them fixed in next update.
and your right currently android is better than iOS & WP
who knows the future
but all OS Cool in their own way.
58. -box- (Posts: 3536; Member since: 04 Jan 2012)
True, not as much tweaking, but I switched from Android (and before that Symbian) to Windows Phone and haven't felt the need to tweak or customize. There isn't a feeling like I need to show off what it can do because it just WORKS and it is highly intuitive and quick. While my acquaintances with androids wait for their launchers to restart or reset the device because it froze or are working through the lag, I've already accomplished the same task (even one with a GS4!). I've played with newer androids like the GS3, 4, and Notes and the LG Optimus G and the HTC One, and each time it feels like a chaotic mess, and it is such a relief to go back to my Lumia (even more so when I get the 925).
At least we can agree that both are better than ios, right?
3. PhansMuneeb (Posts: 337; Member since: 28 Jan 2012)
OIS is one of my favorite bcoz many of us have shaky hands...
5. mr.techdude (Posts: 417; Member since: 19 Nov 2012)
A lot of smartphones have ois its not only Nokia.
6. dexter_jdr (Posts: 890; Member since: 28 Jun 2012)
name 3 smartphones besides nokia. "mr.techdude"
12. Shatter (Posts: 1747; Member since: 29 May 2013)
HTC One, Sharp Aqus SH-01D , Lumix Phone P-05C. Get on my level.
Both the sharp and Lumix had it back in 2011, OIS is nothing new kids so stop lying to yourselves that Nokia is king of cameras, there are plenty of smartphones you kids have no idea exist that beat out all the current US flagships.
34. dexter_jdr (Posts: 890; Member since: 28 Jun 2012)
i shouldve said 10 but holy s**t i dont even know that they make smartphones haha.
and i never said that nokia is king of cameras but they are eventually on smartphone cameras.
i just asked some other ois phones coz i dont know that many. and i also know that ois originated from real cameras dumbas
36. dexter_jdr (Posts: 890; Member since: 28 Jun 2012)
and i wanted mr.techdude to answer my quesion. without searching it on the web.
42. raunak (Posts: 480; Member since: 12 Oct 2011)
Nokia might not have been the first when it comes to OIS, but it was the one who made it famous and showed that it can be implemented in mobiles.
iPhone was not the first with capacitive screen, but it was the one who made it popular.
Galaxy Note was not the first with phone with screen greater than 5", but it was the one who opened that market segment.
iPad was not the first tablet, but again, it was the one who opened that segment.
So even though nokia was not the first, it implemented OIS the best just like above devices did their respected features.
If HTC one (and future phones) have OIS, it's because Lumia 920 has it, not because some minor manufacturer bought it first to the market.
and yes, Nokia is the king of camera in phones. The "plenty of smartphones you kids have no idea" might be able to beat iPhones or Galaxies but not the 808, it the only phone who competes with dedicated cameras.
So yes, Nokia is the king of cameras in phones.

"Nokia is the king of cameras in phones."
I agree they got awesome camera especially in law light and their still improving it.
45. raunak (Posts: 480; Member since: 12 Oct 2011)
Exactly what i was thinking. I searched that Lumix phone on the web and guess what - it is not a phone at all. It is a dedicated camera, closer to Galaxy camera than a phone.
Also, I can surely say that OIS in those devices is worser than Digital stabilization used in iPhones and Others, let alone the OIS used in 92x and One.
46. SleepingOz (Posts: 2376; Member since: 22 Oct 2011)
Nokia fanboys always like to take credit from others.
"Nokia made the first handheld mobile phone."
False, it was Motorola!
"Nokia made the first camera phone."
Nopes, Sharp did!
Now, it's "nokia made the first phone with OIS." SMH
62. raunak (Posts: 480; Member since: 12 Oct 2011)
Well, every brand has blind fanboys no matter what.
66. WHoyton1 (Posts: 1616; Member since: 21 Feb 2013)
And your a perfect example of one of Nokia's fanboys....
72. raunak (Posts: 480; Member since: 12 Oct 2011)
Again, try to give reasons instead of just blatantly stating ridiculous things.
I said 808 is the best cameraphone, hence nokia is the king of cameras in phones. Where's fanboyism in that?
48. papss (Posts: 2876; Member since: 03 Sep 2012)
Of here we go with the trolling..why did you take your Chinese phone off you pic? No body wants any of those junk phones you mentioned... You can keep them where they were made... In some underrated factory ran by communist
11. rahulz (Posts: 116; Member since: 25 Feb 2013)
A lot of smartphones??? Only nokia Lumia 920/925/928 and HTC ONE have OIS.
so basically Only one smartphone device got OIS except nokia.
13. Shatter (Posts: 1747; Member since: 29 May 2013)
Wrong, Nokia didn't even make the first smartphone with OIS it was Panasonic. That phones was 13.2 MP back in MID TWO THOUSAND ELEVEN.
23. rahulz (Posts: 116; Member since: 25 Feb 2013)
I didnt know that, thanks for the information buddy.
33. PhansMuneeb (Posts: 337; Member since: 28 Jan 2012)
who said Nokia made first smartphone with OIS but they marketed it better than Panasonic or any other brand before it.
35. dexter_jdr (Posts: 890; Member since: 28 Jun 2012)
but i wanna see some panasonic videos on how great the ois is then.
44. therealestboy (Posts: 47; Member since: 03 May 2013)
Who cares if who marketed which better. We consumers should only care performance, innovation, competition, price and so on. The fact remains Nokia was not the first company to put OIS on a smartphone.
73. raunak (Posts: 480; Member since: 12 Oct 2011)
This is consumer electronics we're talking about. If CONSUMERS themselves don't know about the products, then you lose the whole point.
55. iushnt (Posts: 376; Member since: 06 Feb 2013)
Sammy haters used to hate the marketing of sammy and now they praise the marketing of Nokia..haha
59. -box- (Posts: 3536; Member since: 04 Jan 2012)
How many have mechanical OIS, not software? For example, galaxies and iphones have OIS by cropping the shakiest parts and lowering the image size to minimize the appearance of shaking (much like how YouTube does it) which looks awful.
74. raunak (Posts: 480; Member since: 12 Oct 2011)
If it's OIS, it's mechanical. Galaxies and iPhones don't have OIS. They have Digital Stabilization. You can call that DIS, maybe.
4. jackhammeR (Posts: 1548; Member since: 17 Oct 2011)
I believe that 925 produces a bit sharper images.
And presumably, it's better in low light. That wa sthe point.
I wonder what amber update will do to 920 camera and shoots it takes during the day.
8. dexter_jdr (Posts: 890; Member since: 28 Jun 2012)
925 has a very very very small advantage in sharpness and detail.
my reference is the grasses under them
9. gaurang (Posts: 94; Member since: 16 Nov 2012)
finally start competing....for good sake iphonearena nokia has been the king of camera phones all along....
17. Rehankhan (Posts: 323; Member since: 24 Oct 2012)
even smart cameras are more smart then lumia overpriced feature phones
20. tashreef (Posts: 475; Member since: 24 Nov 2012)
oh really? Smart cameras han? i think we are discussing about Smartphone Cameras .. Not Smart cameras?
Buy a Lumia, you'll have Both Smart Camera and smartphone experience. Even 808 is not a bad choice... Much better than SG Camera
56. iushnt (Posts: 376; Member since: 06 Feb 2013)
but much worse user experience than SG Camera
25. jackhammeR (Posts: 1548; Member since: 17 Oct 2011)
so carry a feature phone, a stand alone gps reciver, a laptop and some digital camera...plus keep in mind that you HAVE to take a camera which can take only still shots...to make a video you must equip yourself with a camcoder!
...and now, buy some rucksack and the floor is yours.
27. jackhammeR (Posts: 1548; Member since: 17 Oct 2011)
what's wrong with it?
the rest of components they can buy outside, like everyone else.
16. Shatter (Posts: 1747; Member since: 29 May 2013)
Samsung has the same outdated design and bloatware. Samsung is turning into Apple.
19. Rehankhan (Posts: 323; Member since: 24 Oct 2012)
what are you talking about dude? people are making rectangle shaped phones from decades so should we now start making phones with triangle shape? no i think design never gets old its just your personal preference
28. jackhammeR (Posts: 1548; Member since: 17 Oct 2011)
you're so narrow minded that it's beyond one's imagination.
We're not talking about shapes but design IN GENERAL. take a look at samsung phones and tell me that they don't look the same.
