In an official Nokia video reminiscent of #SmokedByWindowsPhone, a Nokia Lumia 800 goes up against the Apple iPhone 4 in order to see which phone comes up with turn-by-turn directions faster to the London Eye. Using Nokia Drive, the Lumia is able to access the turn-by-turn directions in 15.24 seconds while the iPhone 4 user was still trying to access the information. And of course, this is a lopsided contest as without downloading a third party app, there will be no vocal directions or turn-by-turn navigation for the iPhone 4. With Nokia Drive, the Nokia Lumia 800 gives its user the choice between a male or female voice.
For her troubles, Olga is given a box containing a brand new Nokia Lumia 800 and a poster proclaiming her decision to upgrade to the Windows Phone powered phone. Would the test have been more fair had Olga had a third party turn-by-turn navigation app installed on her Apple iPhone 4?
Althought I'm a Nokia Fan(you can check my profile for that) I'll say this was rather stupid, cuz 'London xyz' was already in the history. And at the very end, when iPhone defended to the last, the Nokia guy said "It's not talking".
and for jove39, iPhone 4 is almost equally powerful as Lumia 800. Reason: despite the low clock speed, Cortex A8 chipset is powerful than Scorpion or Snapdragon.
Another thing Jove, iPhone 4 costs almost 1.5 times the Lumia 800.
What you are saying is like "Don't compare Galaxy SII with the almighty new Asha 302"
release date doesn't matter. What matters is performance level.
True the cempetition is a bit unfair with the histrory. But is was someone walking on the street who happens to have an iPhone 4, so complaing that the Lumia 800 has an unfair advantage because of release date, I don't think is a valid reason. The Nokia guy is not gonna run around and say he wants someone with an iPhone 4S. The Lumia wins because of Nokia Drive, which is one of the best navigation apps.
