Don't you understand when an error is made? The 920 camera is still better the all the leading competitor products (review at the Verge). These things happen to all companies it's just unfortunate it happened at this stage with Nokia. The next logical step to make as consumers is to MOVE ON.

the only thing good about the new Nokia phones turned out to be phony, Nokia had a chance to gain something in the market with their new cameras but now looks like they might actually lose out for not being honest in their marketing.

More like a clever marketing. The first pic was fake and the second was sort of true. Many reporters, bloggers and etc will be itching to find out if its true capabilities and Nokia will get all the free publicity and notoriety that they need to sell Lumias. Genius!

Do you really like Nokia that much that you made yourself believe this was clever marketing, or are you just joking?

This nothing to do about the Nokia but the method which the alleged advertisement it was delivered. This stunt has been done before by other companies and other products. As far as I'm concern, whether or not Nokia succeeds or not I don't give a damn. I don't hate or a fan of them, just saying.

Ok. It's just the way you ended with an exclamation mark reminded me of an apple fan who is trying to justify something that is wrong.

A wise decision would be the reduce the 32 gb internal memory to 16 and add a external memory slot. This will considerably reduce the price.

Sounds good idea to me 16 GB + 32GB card = Win win..

Nope. I have 32gb internal plus 64gb external on my SGS3. Better too much than too little.

and pay far more for a worse design, its a matter of taste i think... i prefer the tank like form factor of the 920 to the flimsy removable back cover of the sgs...

Rather have 32 + 32 (or more) so that there is a clear example of value for the money, and customers can realize that spending $100 for each step of more data capacity for iDevices is exorbitant and wasteful

Its obviously naysayers from fandroid/isheep gang, do anyone complain when the Siri ads were taken with a DSLR? Do anyone complain Samsung not using its "Galaxy S3" camera for advertising instead?

The thing is, Samsung doesn't say "Here's our new camera, have a look at some sample shots and videos of our new technology" and then show photos from a £5000+ camera.

how about people just look at shots the actual phone has taken then, if it lives up to the claims then most on here will have to eat there words

and nokia have a great history on camera tech and innovation just look at the nokia 808 pureview

i hope the lumia 920 lives up to the claims and puts this stuff about fake vid to sleep

ohh and all phone ads are exaggerated with shortened sequences etc makes them look like they run smooth and perfect when in fact it aint the whole case

Siri ads isn't advertising the camera, it advertised Siri.
Samsung ads didn't advertise its camera, it advertised the Galaxy S3.

Nokia's ad is advertising the 920's camera, didn't use its camera.
The fact that the ad showed the guy using the phone to record in the scene right before showing from his point of view is enough to prove they were advertising the 920's camera.
Nokia, sit the f*ck down.

HTC One X, Lumia 900 dropped on concrete floor... no scratch, no problem

Galaxy S3 dropped on floor, casing cracked... Iphone 4 dropped on floor, glass cracked.

Rather pay more for HTC and Nokia solid build.

It sucks how the S3 breaks quite easily. The S2 was great in drop tests. Motorola also have solid build quality

I'm not siding with the iPhone or Galaxy S3 but if solid build was what you wanted you would've went for the 3310.
Just saying.

lol... can't help it. And I knock it over my night stand all the time. That's why I really appreciate a true solid build phone.

And really if I spent $$$ on a phone, I don't really want to bother with protective casing...etc.... So the gorilla glass of my Lumia 900 is awesome. My old Iphone 4 is in terrible shape...lol

s**t happens. Don't really care. Still getting the cool Nokia Lumia 920. people who want that pureview technology will still get it anyway. Even without pureview that is still the WP8 handset I will buy.
