Nokia comic strip urges people to #Switch to get wireless charging

0. phoneArena 20 Jan 2013, 02:00 posted on

Ok, who turned on the switch at Nokia that makes them just want to talk about the #Switch, which is the Finnish OEM's new catchphrase as the Nokia Lumia 920 starts picking up traction all over the world; in the U.S., the exciting news is that we could soon be seeing a high-end Nokia Lumia model for Verizon Wireless which could be a carrier-specific variant of the Nokia Lumia 920...

Amoled has lower perceived sharpness, and oversaturated color, not mentioning the burning issue which can be permanent.

Not all games come to android first, mostly is iOS.

Well, I am a fan of android, but quite ashamed to be in the same boat as you, who are obviously so blinded. Heck, Galaxy S3 and Note 2 are two of the best smartphones, but not the best two smartphones.

Dude, seriously, don't be a blind follower. I really pity you.

Not as powerful? Ill politely disagree with that. My wifes Lumia 822 crushes my friends GS3 in speed tests. Although the WP8 models might not have the "best technology" its also not as necessary. Android is sloe due to all of the garbage running in the background. Even when I stop it in task manager it finds itself open again moments later. To put it terms, Android is like a Ferrari. Lots of torque inside. But that Ferrari is dragging an elephant while WP8 is a Canaries not pulling anything. Who wins that race? Ill leave it at that.

But we live in times where we have 3 solid mobile OS's. Choice is good my friend. I do like things about Android but for what I use my phone for its laggy and irritates me. But my friend with his GS3 loves customization. I for one could care less about it and what customization I do like the WP8 has.

I know, even my 8X responds faster than my nephew's S3 (we live in the same house, so I kinda use the S3 almost everyday). WP phones are not as powerful in specs, but in real life, they are smoother and feel more polished. I agree to what you say. Android is Ferrari dragging a caravan, but WP is Smart For Two with only the driver inside it. What I meant is that, it's not as powerful in spec sheet.

I love android for whatever things I can do with it (well, one could agree that there are a lot of things one can do with andorid), the quick and fast access of WP8 and all the efficiency it brings. I do, however, enjoying my 8X right now. :)

I envision wireless charging the way Nikola Tesla did. Free energy and from a distance, not from setting your phone on a pad, might as well use a charger to text and charge at the same time. Idiots.

We'll get there eventually. Just has to be implemented safely and effectively. No sense in having it if it causes people to have heart attacks or the charging is less than a trickle to where it actually gains power when using it.

You know you can move the phone around the mat without being tied down to a Micro USB cable right?

I find it completely funny that a child like troll feels the need to degrade WP8 or Nokia.. Feed the troll, nice comment troll.. Didn't I see it somewhere else? Oh yeah, its every thread with either of these companies in it. Its okay, you feel threatened bye what you have no idea about. You just continue to use your buggy ICS. You like a stutter do you? I thought so... You sir should be banned for your complete nonsense. You give android a bad name and make them look ignorant...

I havent seen any stutter on any Android yet and I have used it since Eclair. You must really need to look for it.

Maybe its one of those really low end phones that are free and you must pick the worst one out of that free pile.

Dude you are delusional if you think ICS wasn't a stutterfest no matter the phone..reason I'm speaking of ICS? Troll has ICS and not jelly bean. I never bought the low end phone.. I had a nexus one, GS2, nitro hd, one x and now a l920

my archos has ics (prob never get updated to jelly bean sadly) and ive had lag and force closure. my 808 also had some lag occasionally and has froze a couple times since ive had it.

No thank you ... i don't like wireless charging. "Dirty" electricity is bad for health.

Well not just NOKIA anyone who tries to make Wireless Charging as USP are just fooling the INNOCENT buyers .. i call it "DUPING" and not fooling .. Around 15% of population is walking on diabetes without knowing that they are prone to "D".

And i see my son's Xperia P always on charging while he is playing games and testing continuously for hours ...

Not just bad for health but people behind this comic has no logic at all! xD
You can still move and use your phone while it's charging with a traditional wire charger.. Can we tell the same about restricted "wireless" chargers? LMAO! Logic FAIL, nokia!

You do know it does both and comes with both.. There's that choice again that android fans are talking about.. It seems that choice is only good when it puts a plus on the android front

No. Wireless charging is bull crap irrespective of the LOGO. It's just a way to earn more money by these greedy corporates and nothing else. Comfort? Comfort my foot it just adds to their bottom line at expense of public health.

I didn't pay a penny for it so how is it greed? It's not, stop trying to find fault where there is none.

NOKIA is not a charitable company nor are others. Do you think you would get it free? Cost is already built into the device and the FREE CARROT is dangled just to lure ... c'mon you can be more sensible than that :)

Listen.. I payed 99.00 for this great phone (not the best but great) with a charger so while it cost something in one department or another that was the best deal on a phone all last year

I am ok with phone (as phones are something that are becoming unavoidable) of any company except apple but not ok with the wireless charger that NOKIA is showing as a reason to SWITCH .... Nokia already lost me because of this reason to switch ....

I know it comes with a cable charger as well. I was just pointing out the BS logic about this comic. Don't deviate from the topic, you butthurt fanboy.

First of all that talks about its bad if you have diabetes... I'm not fat and I certainly don't have diabetes so for me wireless is the way to go.. Plugging in your phone is a pain sometimes and every phone I've owned the micro USB slot gets loose.

The way you talk it is clear you have no understanding about diabetes ... and as a diabetic i can say so because before i was Dx'd even i did not know what diabetes is all about and carried same misconceptions as you do. Blind love is always bad and catastrophic ... use your head ... anything mishandled will get "loose" ... looks like you are blinded by Nokia love. Bad effects are traceable in a diabetic due to broken carbohydrate metabolism system but that doesn't mean it doesn't cause same changes in normal person. In normal person the feedback loops works perfect so it comes in normal range but it does overwork your pancreas to get it normal :)

As the saying goes ... better be safe than sorry as "D" can strike just about anyone ... except you perhaps :)

I say it again... I'm not fat and I certainly don't have diabetes so for ME this is no concern...
