Nokia fans come up with their own version of Samsung's iPhone 5 attack ad

Nokia fans come up with their own version of Samsung's iPhone 5 attack ad
"Flyweight vs the heavyweight" is the slogan above an iPhone 5 vs Nokia Lumia 920 ad, created by fans, and inspired by the attack ad that is all over the US papers, made by Samsung to tout the advantages of its Galaxy S III against Apple's finest. Nokia already tweeted its take on the "It doesn't take a genius" Samsung ad, but now we have a direct comparison.

Nokia fans come up with their own version of Samsung's iPhone 5 attack ad
"Heavyweight" is a pretty good way to describe the 185g Lumia 920, although we are certain the Nokia fans who created this meant the richer spec features of the WP8 Lumia.

Things like the first optically stabilized camera on a phone, a capacitive display that can be used with gloves, and free offline voice-guided navigation are standing out against Apple's iPhone 5, although some of the features are not direct substitutes for each other - Microsoft's voice recognition solution TellMe has a long way to match Siri's natural language algorithms, for example. 

It is a pretty good laundry list on the right side, and thankfully in areas that matter, like low-light photography and gloves-on screen operation. Since these ads are going down to 5th grade level anyway, what do you think, is this direct comparison better than what Samsung did for the Galaxy S III, or the Apple's fans rebuttal?

actually, any smartphone from 2011 can be up there and still be better than the elongated iPhone 4S..

It should also have mentioned the App Store vs Marketplace.... The quality and quantity alone of the apps on iPhone kills WP8 big time -_-

the quantity does yes but quality? nope i dont think so.

lets face it there are hardly any new apps coming out that are much needed and only available for iOS. seems that nowadays a smartphone is measured on the amount of apps it has available to it instead of performance, spec etc

Oh man, you really need to take a look at the app store. If you think that quality-wise appstore sucks, then you should take a look at the play store. Even the top rated apps there are porn. iOS apps are best in terms of quality,,, It's one of a few areas where iOS beats android.

where in my comment did i say the appstore sucks?? see you jump to that maybe read first.

as for apps, android have caught up well and now the iphones biggest selling point is no longer relevant.

if your only going to rate a phone on the number of apps then i think company's might as well give up innovation and just pile out app after app.

well it wasnt as your first comment said both quality and quantity. if your focus was quality you would have stated just that.

besides how about giving wp8 a chance who knows how good there apps will be

Of course. It's produced by a dillusional nokia fan from the 16th century. Do you think they are going to list all the things that Apple has advantages over the cheap plastic nokia? Go play with your 5110

Polycarbonate isn't your standard "cheap plastic". Its properties make it able to stand up to a lot of abuse. It is a material used to make bullet-proof glass and riot gear. It is used in the automotive, aircraft, security, military and construction industries. It helps and protects a lot of people. Respect that material.

On the other hand, Nokia is known to build really tough phones and I'm sure the Lumia 920 will be no exception.

That said, I can't wait to see a Lumia 920 vs iPhone 5 drop test. Haha!

Nokia may be old, but not 16th century. With she comes experience, something apple doesn't have much of.
Also, when was the last time Nokia was sued for infringement or alleged stealing other's tech? Oh, you don't know? Well I remember the last big lawsuit they were in, and they had an awesome victory against the fruit company. If they'd gone for a ban along with cash for unpaid royalties, the fruit company would hardly exist anymore. That's because Nokia is a TRUE innovator!

Are you aware that nowadays most american old people prefer to use the iphone? So, I'm not sure if you're trying to insult anyone other than yourself (since the iphone is no longer a fashion but the standard phone) and your foolish beliefs as to me the iphone is a bit like the new 5110... And I'm sorry, I would prefer to use a 5110, I don't like to be a dull clone of everybody else...

Hey fanboy why do you keep on putting Nokia 5110 on your comments. Maybe you're the one that owns the Nokia 5110 and you're too ashamed to tell other people so you're pinpointing at other ones. And your grandparents or parents also used that phone so what are they? Are they like the people who used the Nokia 5110.

Am i the only one that finds "Live Tiles" a not so relevant feature? Also DLNA has been on smartphones for ages.. Other than that the Lumia 920 owns the iPhone apart from weight, it is literally heavyweight.

posted on 17 Sep 2012, 08:58 3

74. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)


well it depends what you like really, the live tiles in my opinion are a great idea, no need to open app after app to get the info. like widgets i guess

its relevant for wp8

and yep lumia 920 has so much more to offer

For sure, they are more relevant today, than retro iOS and those icons from -90.

Lumia 920 is better than US version of GS3 because both are dual core. But the international version of GS3 will win hands on in terms of specs

aww im sorry the S3 automatically wins because maverick786us thinks anything that doesn't have a quad core isn't better than the S3

37. leftheodo (Posts: 65; Member since: 21 Oct 2011)


No, the S3 wins cause it has Android. Which means more development, much much much more apps,, customization, micro SD ..... Oh and it's quad core too :p

You compare the benchmarks of a Quad Core with Dual core or Solo core and see the results. The numbers speaks itself. I never said that anything less than quad core isn't good. But Quad Core is always better and faster

Apple wouldn't go as childishly low as these classless fandroids and this washed-up company called nokia that produces products for senior citizens.

iPhone 5 once again leaves everyone in the dust. It's no coincidence Apple is the most valuable and profitable company in the world, and you know people will be lining up days prior to launch. No other phone has that pulling power.

err mate did you not see the poster, the nokia 920 is in a differant class, its slams the iphone into the ground, just like the gs3 did too.

if you cant be subjective and honest then why bother been on here. if you want to blindly follow apple and say unsupported crap about them leaving everyone in the dust do it somewhere else please.

Nokia deserves more credit then apple ever will, nokia have brought real innovation to the mobile market

Nokia posts about $2billion loss last quarter, Apple posts about $12billion profit. Do the maths.

Typical delusional nokia fanboys. Look at the hard fact figures. Numbers don't lie.

No for every iPhone you buy a good portion of the parts are still Sammy (despite apple's best efforts) So when you buy an iPhone you are giving your money to Sammy! And apples profits are from screwing over it's customers, you THINK apple uses premium parts, but it gets the cheapest stuff it can get from sammy and its other suppliers to increase apples profit margin., only the Shell is "premium" and MOTO's new RAZR HD's are far better constructed than an iPhone, Kevlar, metal and gorilla glass>Cheap ass aluminum and glass
