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?...

I like Nokia and I don't care for your guesses . Try to respect others desire. Every one knows Nokia produce the best phones and most of us left Nokia and went to Apple or Samsung , did that because of outdated Symbian .. just be open minded and accept the truth

based on what? lol

because I blame you as an Nokia fanboy?
you think automatically I am in favor of android?

So funny cause I am not that kind of person

I am the person who loves especially smartphone technology as I am directly working in the field, the second biggest mobilephone carrier in Aus.

And I am also the type of the guy who willing to swich my phone to another if I found better one.
Could be any company cause I am not biased and blinded

I cant see this will heppen to you forever

live with Nokia

Good luck with that

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%

But Tiles remind me of rolling eyes and dancing monkeys on the web pages of the 90's. It's as annoying as those web pages.

android fanboys like yourself are the worst, and all these articles prove it. luckily there are some users on here who arent biased and completely blind to other choices...........if you dont like other options why come and comment? or even look at this article

you and your precious android cult need to get a dose of reality and stop bashing every other choice out there, so insecure arent you lol

Not to say it isn't possible, but doing a search of "lumia 920 cracked screen" brings back a bunch of results. Considering a fastball should be around 80-100 mph, and most of the results mention it was dropped a short distance, it sounds a little fishy to me.

I really wish these companies wouldn't make outrageous claims, just stick to the facts. I don't need a phone to be magical or survive a nuclear blast, I'd settle for them not cracking from a drop the height of my head. Beyond that I'll deal with the consequences.

Shame, poor Nokia, they are trying everything yet GS3 sales continue to get stronger, it will take A LOT more than shooting balls at a GS3 to be successful.

defensive much?

this was just showing that while the gs3 is a great device its build is poor. plus the 920 can do all needed and survive what this popular phone cant. when you spend that kind of money on a phone you want to know if you drop it accidently etc it wont just smash

and you android fans now will use sales as a plus point yet when they were been dominated by the iphone sales didnt matter

funny

Just wow

How blind are you?

"plus the 920 can do all needed and survive what this popular phone cant"

Can you clarify?

What needs are you talking about?

oh wait you meant that poor Apps?

maybe you can say it is getting better, of course I know

But I also do know it took more than 3 years for Google to catch up Apple's Apps

So I guess you could say this comment again 3year later?

Mr Jerry you butt hurt because all topics aren't about android? You know coming into a Nokia section to comment with nothing constructive is typical of a fanboy. Just saying, stop commenting unless you have something real to say... First it's the American comments, now Nokia? I understand that you may not be able to have more than one phone due to funds but don't knock others for choice (isn't that what your precious android is all about?)

WoW just Wow

Typical comment from Trolls

Oh man I feel like I am getting childish talking to you

wow. MrJerry, saying they are blind yet it seems that you can't accept the opinion and also the fact that Nokia Lumia 920 is more durable than Samsung's Galaxy S III.

It's just a simple fact that we can't remove out of the table. We all know that nokia's known best for its build quality.

Also, for crying out loud. You're still bashing WP8 for the apps. The thing is, would you use every app available on the appstore/playstore/marketplace? OF COURSE NOT! The thing is, WP has enough apps to cater what you need and that's the point here.

I'm an android fan and I have a galaxy note II but I can't rule out the fact that nokia's phones are more durable than any other phone in the market.

Those people you said are blind are not blind. You sir, MrJerry are blinded by your fanboyness of what you think is the best. So please, stop bashing every comment around. Thank you.

Did I say I can't accept the opinion?
Go check, I first replied to what Nokia troll comment

Let me tell you what I think

920 is more durable than GS3
I know more than anyone because I am selling these phones

But I don't think GS3 is cheap plastic
It's strong enough to be smartphone unless you need a smartphone as weapon

I can accept 920 has more durable body than GS3
I can't accept GS3 has cheap plastic body

I hope you can get my point
