New Nokia Lumia 925 ad makes fun of Apple iPhone 5 commercial

0. phoneArena 05 Aug 2013, 13:12 posted on

Remember that television spot for the Apple iPhone that showed users of the device snapping picture after picture with their phone? Recall the tagline from that spot? "Everyday, more photos are taken with the iPhone than with any other camera"; as it turns out, Nokia doesn't disagree. But what it is saying in a new ad is that Nokia builds for quality, not quantity...

I agree that WP is not bad Operating System and that it need to grow more. But talking about commercial, commercial was more about Nokia Lumia 925 and it's Pureview technology than about WP itself.

And yes, good ad, I like it. :)

Nokia's ad is: Our smartphone sucks, but it takes better photos than the iPhone 5.

Someone needs to fire the marketing head that approved the video.

Haha you dont really get the ad huh? It is made as iPhone 5's ad, but it shows that the phone takes better pictures...

According to your reasoning, Apple is saying the same thing about its Iphone 5 ad.

But that's exactly what Apple promotes all the time...

"Hey, our smartphone doesn't do as much as Android phones, but oooohhh look, we haz the apps and takesthe betterr fotos, and that's all that matters right?"

Until WP8/9 becomes a viable choice. PASSED.

Sony/Samsung/HTC also has great camera phone with better platform ecosystem support.

as much as i admire the ad.. i don't know how successful it will be... it mentions the iphone before their own product. So that means that if a viewer closes out before nokia is mentioned.. the last thing they hear is that part about the iphone.

the ad isnt directed at impulse buyers as many ads are.
The ad is directed at iphone owners or people who doesnt know anything alse but iphone.
For someone who dont have a smartphone your logic is sound, but for someone who allready owns a smartphone it wouldnt have done anything special for Nokia if the consumer just saw the Nokia logo, they already know about Nokia but most of them dont really know why they should buy Nokia anymore.

Nokia is shifting people's focus on its camera because they know windows lacks many apps and they can't do anything about it. Bu they should focus their attack on samsung and not iPhone.

A better thing that Nokia could do to increase their sales is to get rid of the carrier-exclusive marketing/selling. That has to be the definition of stooopid.

Nokia would do better to offer their own financing for their phones which could be unlocked and used on any carrier.

Nokia would get the benefit of people who don't want to pay through the nose at a carrier and be stuck in a contract for 2 years, and we the customer would benefit from carriers having to greatly cut cellphone bills to stay competitive.

I think Nokia knows that Samsung is in the first place while iPhone comes in at second. So being in third means they have to attack the competition nearest in distance, before they tackle farther. Gettit???

It doesn't matter how many Nokias with Pureview technology were sold, because it still doesn't change the main idea of this commercial and things which were said in this commercial.

This made me Lol. Other posts not so much, but that is comedy there.

Nokia is a goooood hw manufacturer, and wp is growing. I don't see myself one unless Google f's android real bad, but my buddy has nokia wp and likes it more than his android... Although most people I know or talk to that don't like android are folks who haven't had 4.0+. Not saying anything, just saying.

However, I wish Nokia the best. The are very innovative.

˝Every day better photos are taken with Nokia Lumias than with every other mobile˝
I disagree with this, because Nokia 808 makes best photos imo. It looks like Nokia wants to bury the 808 :/ Lumias have great cameras, but when I compare camera samples from Lumia 1020 and 808, I see more details and less noise on 808's photos.

Galaxy S4 has proven to be better than the iPhone 5. But the edge goes to Lumia 1020.

You need to look deeper into the quality of apple to find the truth. Maybe you should take apart your iphone.

Apple is a dying breed. it will be like RIM in a few years. The camera is ok but Lumia pureview whats hot. When a camera comarison is dome iphone are in the mix with other phone. No one goes out of their way to compare it to iphone. it is just part of the comarison bunch.

^^ Fanboy comment. Iphone 5's camera doesnt suck, its a good camera. But Most of the Lumia's (and some other nokias) do indeed take better pictures, but that doesnt mean the iphones camera sucks. A bad camera would be the one on my DNA haha
