Well, i dont see anything wrong in taking a jab at a competitor. Many competitors do it nowadays.

samsung should have used this design

glad that Sony is mature enough to not get involve in such kid fight.

They were not scared of Microsoft (which is scarier than Nokia, HTC and Samsung) at the E3...

was talking about trolling other oem not abt product introduction
24. ojdidit84 (Posts: 454; Member since: 16 Jul 2011)
And Sony trolled MS pretty hard about the Xbox One at E3
20. EXkurogane (Posts: 863; Member since: 07 Mar 2013)
Nope, Sony is just as childish putting up a bar graph of PS4 VS XBONE, saying 4 > 1. Not funny.
But i do still agree pS4 is the better console given u can play games offline.
26. Edmund (Posts: 656; Member since: 13 Jul 2012)
No it isn't- it's merely the cheaper of the 2 consoles.
44. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)
have you tried both?
ofcourse you havent, come on in terms of gameplay these will both be very similar its the restrictions people arent happy with
you saying its the better gaming console implies you have played both, you havent obviously

Gaming PC sends regards to lesser creatures (Xbox and PS4)
75. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)
the real hardcore gamers will ofcourse have real gaming pc's that are miles ahead of the off the shelf consoles
theres no real competition
46. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)
im sure you can play offline on the xbox one, but the xbox has to be online at least once a day sort of like reporting to base.
i agree Microsoft really lost the plot with these restrictions

sony don't want to come in camera phone fight because sony already realize it when nokia release 808 41mp.

not interested in Windows 8 phone period. I only use FOSS whenever possible for my own and future generations sake.

I find iOS is very useful for entertaining future generations. Hand a toddler an iPad and you could go take a nap for a couple hours.

Sony makes their own cameras I'm pretty sure they could come up with a technology for smartphones that would pwn Nokia
64. roldefol (Posts: 4097; Member since: 28 Jan 2011)
If they can get any carriers to sell it. I have a hard time taking Sony seriously as a smartphone leader when it's so hard to buy their flagships in the US. Did they piss everyone off or something?
65. vandroid (Posts: 326; Member since: 04 Sep 2012)
Good point, but the Xperia z is coming to tmobile Idk why other carriers don't sell their phones
68. Potato. (banned) (Posts: 607; Member since: 14 Jun 2013)
I don't think they can pwn Nokia. Even Sony can't beat i5's camera.
72. haseebzahid (Posts: 1853; Member since: 22 Feb 2012)
making camera is not big deal but making one that fits in mobil is one big challange sony like slimest phones and cameras dont let that happen
9. wando77 (Posts: 787; Member since: 23 Aug 2012)
Nope but I bet it fits in to lots of women's handbags which I bet is who it will be aimed at. Nokia seems blind to what is going on perhaps why samsung is at the top and they are at the bottom
10. abcdefgh (banned) (Posts: 471; Member since: 29 Mar 2013)
if you have a handbag all the time why the hell you buy a stupid ugly chubby thing?go buy a frakingly sexy sony dslr at same price or maybe even less.
16. joey_sfb (Posts: 5184; Member since: 29 Mar 2012)
because Sony dslr don't take call. The fact is that millions of people would still buy it when they need a better camera on phone running the latest Android OS.
Samsung let their sales do the talking.
18. joey_sfb (Posts: 5184; Member since: 29 Mar 2012)
Thinking of replacing my 3 years old Canon compact camera with the S4 zoom if their quality is up to standard.
30. -box- (Posts: 3991; Member since: 04 Jan 2012)
Keep using the Canon. If you want an al-in-one device, there are better ones coming. The Zoom is more or less a placeholder
11. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)
so the zoom is for women, funny how no one knew this but you, the zoom isnt aimed at women, considering people say the iphone is a womans phone due to its small screen and size. but no now women want bulky hard to hold phones
god thank you for enlightening us, and nokia arent on the bottom and samsung wont remain on top. look at HTC and sony there really gaining traction this year and samsung are showing signs of an apple mentality. small updates spec boost and new device. plus the saturating of the market wont do them any favors
why are you trying to defend samsung's lazy attempt of a device? they didnt even try with the zoom...
12. roldefol (Posts: 4097; Member since: 28 Jan 2011)
Agreed on the women's phone point. At the risk of overgeneralizing, women like stylish and easy to use phones that they can customize with pretty cases. Good luck finding a case for that Zoom abomination.

17. SIGPRO (Posts: 1208; Member since: 03 Oct 2012)
LOL nice jab at Samsung......EOS will kill the S4 zoom!
21. Gaurav008 (Posts: 325; Member since: 20 Jul 2012)
S4 Zoom has to be one of the worst looking phone in the last year or so. Nokia Lumia EOS will be one badass of a phone.
22. taz89 (Posts: 2014; Member since: 03 May 2011)
Have to agree with Nokia here, there implementation of zoom ie pureview 808 is better suited fire a phone. The s4 zoom would have made sense if the the camera itself was significantly superior to any phone but from what I read it's just a good camera phone with excellent zoom but if you are going to add that much bulk you should at least significantly improve the camera quality.
23. sergiobr (Posts: 686; Member since: 25 Feb 2013)
I prefer a "little bulky" with all the features from S4 plus Android then WP8. And ... taking better photos, yes ! with 10x zoom. Now i won´t carry 2 devices :-)
31. -box- (Posts: 3991; Member since: 04 Jan 2012)
Better zoom doesn't mean better photos, necessarily, just less cropping later. It can actually make a photo worse if there is any camera shake. I'd much rather have lossless zoom with OIS so there is no blur and I can zoom the photos in a photo editor than have a useless photo because the bulky awkward camera had a mild tremor at full extension. If I really need something too far away to zoom via software then I'll use my DSLR with a tripod and telephoto lens.
39. joey_sfb (Posts: 5184; Member since: 29 Mar 2012)
do you own the Samsung s4 zoom? heard it's not even out yet.
52. sergiobr (Posts: 686; Member since: 25 Feb 2013)
I told here , I´ve my Sony TX-66 ALLWAYS in my pocket (is minimum size) and it is capable of 10x zoom perfect ! No blur at all. The strength of camera zoom is not only the zoom itself but a beautifull OS (for me) and a great camera. With S4 I can leave my Sony (I hope so)
25. jibraihimi (Posts: 747; Member since: 29 Nov 2011)
If 6.3 mega can fit into pocket, then so can this.........
33. jackhammeR (Posts: 1548; Member since: 17 Oct 2011)
you forget about thickness.
Nokia slapped samsung straight in the face. Samsung is a lazy cow. they took a digital camera and put an android in it. Wow, what an effort.
35. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)
but because its android so many mindless idiots will say its better
such a lazy device that does nothing new, Sony and Nokia dont need to worry
37. roldefol (Posts: 4097; Member since: 28 Jan 2011)
It's not a fandroid thing. I haven't seen anyone defend the design of the S4 Zoom outside of the die-hard Samsung fanboys.
38. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)
tbf i worded that wrong, i ment the sammy fanboys will praise it due to it running android. the mindless idiots are the sammy fans
43. roldefol (Posts: 4097; Member since: 28 Jan 2011)
Now that Samsung is so far ahead in sales, I feel like being a Samsung fan would be like being a Toyota fan. What's the point? People are going to buy the appliances anyhow.
45. Taters (banned) (Posts: 6474; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
Nokia really has no business mocking people for their pocket ability.... They made the two biggest bricks of all time in the N95 and Lumia 920.. Not even Nokia fans can deny that.
48. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)
wow your still been an idiot
the 920 cant be classed as a brick anymore, thanks to samsung you need to stop trolling nokia articles with that old line and go paste the samsung articles with it
also if nokia are so bad with there ''brick'' phones why do all you android fans beg nokia to make an android device? will they suddenly not be bricks if they do
see your so transparent, first you hate on HTC, now nokia. never happy are you just full of stupid hate
50. Taters (banned) (Posts: 6474; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
hahaha poor idiot. Nokia is famous for making bricks, that is a fact and Samsung is famous for being accused of going to thin at the expense of battery, yet Samsung still incorporates some of the largest batteries in their products.
You don't see a problem with the company that is famous for making bulky phones calling out the company that is famous for going too thin on phones based on size? Come on now, you are an idiot but not even you are that stupid that you don't see a problem with this.
53. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)
lmao you still show your idiocy everytime you comment
first off Nokia are known for pushing mobile camera tech beyond there competitors, there also known for excellent build quality.
samsung arent known for making thin phones, samsung arent famous because of thin phones either. there known for packing loads of features and bloatware into there phones. there known for sub par build quality too.
whats funny is how you always dodge any questions put to you, you have no answers. you cant accept samsung dropped the ball and you spend your time trying to focus on slating nokia while turning a blind eye to samsungs new brick.....yes i said brick actually if by your logic nokia's are bricks this zoom is what? come on answer
54. Taters (banned) (Posts: 6474; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
Man, why do I even bother. You are obviously not mentally equipped to have a proper debate.
First of all, I do not dodge proper questions, it is just that your questions are so stupid and butt hurt, I do not feel that I have to answer them because they do not help your argument in any way. You just make yourself look like an idiot. I'll humor you on your last question just so you can see how retarded you are though.
"also if nokia are so bad with there ''brick'' phones why do all you android fans beg nokia to make an android device?"
The reason i ignored this question because it is so stupid and obviously delusional that it is not funny. The simple retort and own-age is that you have it the other ways around. It is Nokia fans that want Android instead of WP8. The evidence suggests that outside of the tech media, people can't care less about Nokia hardware. it is all about Samsung and Apple hardware right now.
So if Samsung phones are known to be so poorly built, then why does everyone want them? And pleas do not say something stupid like marketing.
55. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)
so because you cant answer you throw out crap that others cant debate, your completely one sided so a debate cant be had.
only idiot here is you, you prove it over and over so lets put you to rest.
first off you love to spin it into just positive for android. you cant stand it that the real fact is android fans beg for nokia to make an android device. many have stated that they would ditch samsung if nokia did this. the real nokia fans havent got tied to an os and are enjoying wp8. they are open to something new.
the last part of your comment is plain stupid
''people cant care less about nokia hardware''
yeah i guess the 41mp sensor on the 808 just died and was never mentioned again. please to this day people still rave about it. your trying to imply because samsung and apple have loads of marketing then people dont care about any other company. your also inadvertently iply samsungs success is down to marketing. see if your smart enough to follow that
and now the classic fanboy comment. answer this fanboy. you say everybody wants samsung and you imply its because there the best. so the iphone the icon, that must have been the best too right? millions still buy it and according to you sales means best
fanboys always equate sales as best when there in there beloved companies favor. and im not going to say its down to marketing as you have already implied it is so thanks
any real response?
57. Taters (banned) (Posts: 6474; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
LOL pathetic. Do you even read your own posts? Wait let me get this straight. Are you actually suggesting that people that whine on phonearena asking for Nokia android phones as some sort of barometer to the quality of Nokia phones? Sorry but that is just retarded, even for your retard standards.
Using sales as a barometer isn't perfect but is much better than using phonearena. Especially since with sales data you have sample sizes in the 20 million + for Samsung and Apple. What is the sample size for people on phonearena talking about 41mp cameras and Nokia Android phones? A thousand at best and probably more in the hundreds. Hardly a large enough sample size to truly indicate anything.
As for whether or not Nokia fans want Android or vice versa, well there is one thing that heavily suggests that Nokia fans want Android and it's not the other way around. Android is popular and has apps. Nokia is not popular and WP8 has no apps. You see that moron? That is called EVIDENCE. And yes reading the market trends tells us a lot otherwise analysts wouldn't exist.
All you spew is garbage with no evidence to support it whatsoever. Androids fans are clamoring for well built Nokia hardware based on some phonearena fanboys? ROFL haha good one.
56. Taters (banned) (Posts: 6474; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
I'll humor you again but owning you again.
"yes i said brick actually if by your logic nokia's are bricks this zoom is what? come on answer"
I already gave you a very empirical answer but of course you chose to ignore it like an idiot. First, Nokia is marketing their brick phones against competitors that emphasize thinness and lightness like Apple. Samsung, and Sony. All of their flagships are either 7.6mm thick or 7.9mm thick. Nokia is marketing against them and are willing to go brick mode to have a improved camera while 95% wont even go there. In fact, HTC is the only other company willing to go there. If you are way thicker than 95% of the competition, then your phone is a brick. That is just how it is.
Now with the GS4 zoom, it is a niche product and is basically just a more compact version of the Galaxy camera with a 3g antenna. So that would make the GS4 zoom a camera with 3g. Just like how in some parts of asia they have tablets that can make phone calls. They are called tablets with 3g.
I hope I educated you on something but I have no hope, because judging from your previous posting history, you are too stupid to follow. haha
58. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)
are you 12? you have owned no one
see your trying your hardest to focus on the so called negatives of other companies while praising samsung, answer this you whine on that samsung are about thinness so why wont you criticize the zoom? why do you dodge this question.
also you class the 920 as a brick, you must have a serious bone disease if you find the 920 heavy or big. what about the note 2? that would be a slab acording to your so called logic. thats also real big so why do you never attack that.
you see your a fanboy and nothing more, your always on the samsung team slating HTC and nokia.
you keep trying to put a positve spin on the zoom but the fact is, this so called phone is against the EOS. if the EOS lives up to rumors theres no competition. then you have the rumored sony entry. but to stay with released devices
the 808 beat a galaxy camera, this is as you say just a galaxy camera with 3g (lazy excuse for a new device btw love how you dont criticize that) so its not even a good camera let alone phone.
nokia have made ground and brought things to mobiles that werent there before, all samsung has done is grab there galaxy camera put a 3g antenna in and claim its a new device......talk about taking the mick out of there customers
your calling me stupid yet ive tore every point you have said and shown you to be another fanboy idiot. besides people already knew you were that when you tried saying the 920 is a bigger brick then the zoom.
try harder fanboy
59. Taters (banned) (Posts: 6474; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
LOL Clueless Nokia fanboys will be clueless Nokia fan boys. I already explained to you as clear as night and day. I am not dodging anything and you are just too clueless to see or choose to ignore my answer which was already stated multiple times. Why should I criticize the GS4 zoom anyways? Am I obligated to or something? haha. You see, it is stupid things like this that make you look like such a babbling idiot. You don't even know what you are talking about and go off topic in a tangent.
As for the Lumia 920 being heavy and a brick. It isn't just me with "bone disease." Try every single review and everyone I was with that picked it up. All of my friends and acquaintances that pick it up say that it is HUGE. It is the same weight as the Note 2 and the Note isn't even a smartphone, it is a phablet. that alone tells you how much of a brick the Lumia 920 is. Or at the very least, it shows that Nokia is out of touch with the weight and size the public wants. Which is yet again, more evidence that suggest that Nokia fans want Android rather than the other way around. Again. Why would I criticize the Note 2? It is marketed towards a niche and our entire topic is about Nokia, a fat phone manufacturer, calling out Samsung, a thin phone manufacturer, for making a fat, extremely niche camera phone. This has nothing to do with the thin Note 2.
Again, I said nothing about the camera quality of the EOS. I don't care. That is not the point. It could take great pictures for all I know. But again, that doesn't change the fact that it is going to be a brick smart phone competing with thin 7.9mm sleek phones so they shouldn't be calling out anyone about size. Let alone Samsung of all companies.
Again, let me makes this crystal clear before you go off topic again about some retarded bulls**t that you tend to do. If any company ever uses all their resources to make a phone with a projector and calls out the Samsung Galaxy beam for being fat, then that is stupid. The same applies here. Especially since Nokia used all of their resources on a flagship while used Samsung used like 1/10 or less on a super niche product.

OH YEAH? Well my daddy's Nokia could beat up your daddy's Samsung anyday!!
Seriously, both of you need to get off the effing playground already. You're worse than the US Congress.
69. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)
im sorry but this time i dont see your basis for that, if someone continuely slates HTC and Nokia why is it wrong to put them in there place. plus i never once said nokia are the best or my nokia beats your samsung
come one, plus your saying we should come off the playground but you have just joined us then, steeping into something you werent part of
and dont take this as an attack on you, its not im just saying
70. roldefol (Posts: 4097; Member since: 28 Jan 2011)
Admittedly I didn't read either side of this rant, I just saw pages upon pages of back and forth and back. I see this behavior over and over in the comments. What's the point? You're trying to "put them in there place", but you know certain people here are never going to let you have the last word. Fanboys will be fanboys.
