Nokia Lumia 920 and Samsung Galaxy S III each take a fast ball in the back

0. phoneArena 16 Jan 2013, 15:57 posted on

Nokia is going all out to prove that the Nokia Lumia 920 is the flagship smartphone that you should switch to and to showoff its durability, the Finnish based manufacturer set up an experiment that had both the Nokia Lumia 920 and the Samsung Galaxy S III get beaned by a fastball in the back; did either phone survive this grusome experiment?...

But how would the 920 fare against the rigors of Samsung's Mechanical Butt?

So you were duped then by Samdung. Makes profit for a cheap made phone, yet Nokia is the most durable around and cheaper by $100 to SG3.

They say that WIN8 sales is on basis of duping innocent buyers. Don't get me worng ... Nokia HW is undoubtedly the best and i am a nokia fan but i hate Vista8 on phone so Nokia cannot take my money ... I ain;t a samsung fan either ... i prefer NEXUS onlly no matter who makes it :)

Vista8? Nonsense. It's easy also for me to say I hate the old MySpace experience in an android phone. Nexus is just wearing different underwear with holes at the bottom.

Not much of a social site fan so don't care what myspace, orkut, chirkut was/were. I don't like VISTA8 (oops WP8) still because there would be no Nokia for you to like and love few years down the line as it will share same fate as NOVEL (victim of M$ extend and exterminate policy). Nokia & Novell will be known as "Once Upon A Time" great companies ruined by a predator called ... you know who :)

I love to see those Sammy fans use their sales figures to make themselves better and deny the fact that it's made up of poor quality material compare to sturdy Nokia :p

Unfair comparison unibody vs detachable back cover.
Gorrila glass vs ..... What a big joke..

Unibody also describes the design of the frame, e.g. my HTC Sensation has a unibody chassis but the back and sides come off as a separate piece. The 820 survives many of the sake tests and its frame and body pieces fit together in a similar fashion.

My dual smokes you quadcrap. Stop hiding on specs. I got 32Gig, no need for SD card where I have 25G in skydrive, 5G in Gdrive, 10G in dropbox. Stop living in primeval time, everything is in cloud. Why do I need file mgr? I can easily manage in cloud. I have evrything you have plus more. Now, do you have better camera? Wireless? How do you use your phone outside the street at -15C cold? I bet you have to dissect a hole from your glove. Funny you're proud of your plastic phone.

I'm sorry but this video looks like a bunch of bulls**t.
The S3 was clearly still recording after being hit while dropping, don't know what they did other than "tap" the broken glass. No continuous shot of it dropping from a different angle.
Also, after that whole issue with OIS launch, it's kind of hard to believe anything Nokia advertises.
Whether the device is more durable or not, the OIS launch was what screwed them over and I believe advertising like this is just hurting themselves more. People don't like to find out they're being cheated on/bulls**tted and people are starting to notice this with Apple.

I have Galaxy S3 and it is a great phone. But when I compare it with Nokia, it looks like chinese cheap device.
No phone is comparable to this great Nokia.
I swear. I'm writing this comment from my Samsung Galaxy S3

Of course you do. Is that why the word "nokia" is in your username?

Go check out his profile, he doesn't mention the device he owns which supposedly is the Galaxy S3 and he only wants a Lumia 920, which smells like a troll to me.

I bought Galaxy S3 because I like Android and Nokia did not adopt Android.
I said S3 is a great phone and it is the best Andoid phone.
If Nokia had adopted Android, No one would have cared about Galaxy or Note or Xperia..
Samsung was so lucky indeed

Android crap is lucky to have a headstart by years. Put them in the same date release and Android will easily be thrown to the garbage bin. Besides mobile OS customer satisfaction in Windows phone is higher than Android, and that is a fact.

lucky ok thats all it was simple luck lol guess apple were just lucky with ios,microsoft were just lucky with windows,nintendo were just lucky with gameboy,google were just lucky search,facebook were just lucky social network..its all luck and nothing to do with being a good product...take facebook(dont like it myself) not the 1st there was hi5,myspace before it, by your logic the fact that facebook came after should be behind but guess what they are not. apple came into the smartphone world late by your logic as they were not 1st so they shouldnt be seeing the success they are..xbox came into the console market way after sony and nintendo and they are doing extremly well surely by your logic the fact that sony and nintendo had such a head start micrsoft should be doing poor...i could go on and on...if wp8 is a great os then in time it will get market share and if android is a shi*tty os then they will be losing market share ...no matter if your 1st or not if you have a sh*t product you will not get over 50% market share let alone 10%
