Nokia makes fun of Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom with perfectly placed mobile ad

0. phoneArena 02 Sep 2013, 12:45 posted on

Nokia plays a mean game of one upmanship; what the Finnish based manufacturer did to Samsung is hilarious, but at the same time it is a perfectly good business tactic. It seems that in the U.K., Korean OEM Samsung had put up a billboard extolling the virtues of the camera-centric Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom. The ad reads "Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom, the only smartphone with 10X optical zoom," which apparently got the marketing guys at Nokia thinking...

Samsung will never respond to Nokia. Nokia is a dead company. If you respond to Nokia, it will only help Nokia not Samsung.

Samsung's fight is against Apple. other small entities like Nokia, LG will try to bite Samsung. Samsung or Apple will never respond to those. It's not worth giving attention to small fishes. The more attention you give them, more they will benefit.

Which is why you never see Apple responding to Samsungs "blows".

which allows them to make money. compared to simply doing propaganda that makes them spend money, it's apparently way better to go to the courts.

Good one from company taking our morality from Microsoft ....again and again:
1) limited, closed products without choice and freedom
2) poor apps in the MicroSoft stores
3) ads like from crying baby trying to despise competition
4) poor strategy caused lost.....profit insecure in the future

1) The desktop is never the same on two different phones, total freedom.
2) Much like Nintendo has few third party games, but great selfmade games, windowsphone has few apps but great quality in their own software (read Nokia and microsoft).
3) ads are there to make us Think and feel. it got you pissed, so thats half a win.
4) madness is the closest condition to greatness.. profit insecure in the future.

takeja: Google is happy to share your private emails and other personal information with the NSA, and Samsung was caught paying individuals to post fake reviews about HTC Android products. If you are searching for examples of morality and ethical behavior in a corporate business environment, then all I can say to you is "good luck".

Ha ha, very funny! Wake the hell up Samsung, instead of making those corny ads aimed at Apple, do have the courtesy to realise you have other competitors you need to be taking seriously from here on. Well done Nokia :D

Or maybe they should actually advertise their ativ phones (and get them to stores in a reasonable amount of time...) so that the gap between Lumias isn't as big in terms of WP marketshare, or at least to better WP's overall position.

the ativ phones aren't really all the cut up to be honestly. Nokia is holding strong to the WP platform and the new ativ phones don't really have the actual umph behind them to help. they stick to android due to it is a easier platform for them and offer more variety in the long run in profits to gain.

Pretty funny actually. I wonder how well the zoom is selling. I like the idea just not the execution with regards to design.

Take "Note" Nokia. The Zoom is not the phone to get worried about.

Zoom has 10x optical zoom the lumia 1020 only has 6x. From what I understand the zoom has better software and doesn't have the cancerous OS that windows 8 is installed on it. While the 1020 camera is better hardware wise at most stuff.
