They compare them since Apple is the gold standard. Even though its certainly not due to the specs or quality of device, its due to marketing.

Samsung and Nokia have more agressive marketing than Apple has ever had, so it's not about that.

And "I'm a Mac, and I'm a PC" was subtle? Everybody compares to the most successful, maybe next year that will be Samsung or Nokia and others will compare to them.

Nicely said and expressed, but you forgot to mention the rabbit followers.

Obsolete phone? I'm no apple fan, but that's some of the dumbest s#! + I've ever heard.

I thought I put quotation marks on "obsolete". Read again.

Nokia is a failing company trying to revive themselves with Windows Phone 8...Please...

Camera = Only pictures will tell within a month on comparison. They should look similar.
Panorama = Should look similar.
Maps = Both are very barebones, but in the end will provide great support. Google is crowned as KING on this...
Cable = You don't need the adapter...LOL!!! Comes with the 8 pin cable. Charging pad is not a new concept. Heard of Powermat?!?!?!? Its been out for more than 5 years.
Accessory = Headphones...who cares if you get a bluetooth portable JBL speaker. Most people have a home theater system with bluetooth, airplay, or DLNA.
Screen size = Okay you won one. It should look sharp based on the res.
UI = Come on...they are getting desperate with details.
Design = I can access apps very easily. Live tiles are nice, but Windows Phone has been out for more than 2 years. Nothing new.
Design color = I like black phones. Anyone who is male with a purple or yellow phone should be criticized.

I rest my case. Another stupid ad that won't influence buyers.....

I care for free bluetooth headphones....nevermind ifans are always rich. hahaha

"UI = Come on...they are getting desperate with details"

far better from icons? don't you think?

"Design = I can access apps very easily. Live tiles are nice, but Windows Phone has been out for more than 2 years. Nothing new."

And a phone that has been out for 5 years? nothing new....

"Design color = I like black phones. Anyone who is male with a purple or yellow phone should be criticized."

Don't be hattin` people with style. :)

Camera = we've seen live demos of the low light camera demonstrations and the optical image stabilization. There is a definite, marked improvement.
Panorama = Nokia is again focused on low light perf which is better
Maps = Google and Nokia maps are fairly competitive. Google gets the edge. Maps on IOS... way behind.
Cable = and yet Europe requires micro usb charging capability. Apple is also going to be charging probably $30 for the adapter to use their old parts. Can you say 3,000% markup?
Accessory = Bluetooth headphones are amazing and I love them. I use a set of motorola headphones presently for all my workouts.
Screen size = it isn't just that it is sharper. It also brighter, and better outdoors.
UI= The UI won me over from Android. I hated the screenshots and total dearth of capabilities before Mango, but I saw a post Mango device and I was instantly intrigued.
Design color = that's nice... I hate the limited color selection on phones and I like the new color trend. You can still get the phones in black if you want, but now you have more choice.

Camera: pictures are already out. Check youtube, or do a google/Bing search.
Panorama: already available to multiple platforms, but Microsoft's Photosynth offers full spherical views; apple just offers a sweep, though admittedly does offer decent stitching.
Maps: Nokia has the best consumer-available maps in the world. Google's are great, and offer excellent add-ons, but Nokia's are more accurate, kept more up to date, and available offline
Cable: you need an adaptor for the European standard MicroUSB by law, and all the accessories previously purchased will need an adaptor.
Accessory: most people I know don't have a home theater system, DLNA, nor Bluetooth, but they do have a Kinect and a soundbar. DLNA is still in its infancy in terms of mass adoption. NFC and wireless charging that comes with the JBL PlayUp is a great feature, and no cables or adaptors.
Screen size: agree
UI: ios is stale. BLACKBERRY has had more drastic UI changes in the last 2 years than apple has had in almost 6. Hell, even Palm/WebOS has had more changes and improvements!
Design: Agreed, LiveTiles aren't anything new, but they're sure newer than static icons. Apple's designs are overly simplistic: my toddler nephews have more complicated building block shapes.
Color: black is boring. Most phones are monochomatic, uninteresting, and have nothing to set them apart at a distance. People have had to overcome that by purchasing cases to individualize the device. I can't even count how many compliments I've gotten on my cyan Lumia 900, not only because it's a unique color, but because it has color and is therefore unique.

Also, for color: what is more interesting and visually striking, a yellow Lamborghini, or a black camry? A green Alienware tower, or a generic black box computer? A Desert Eagle, or a standard-issue Glock? A Post-It, or a piece of loose leaf? Black has it's place, but it's very boring and monochromatic palettes are passe.

It would have influenced me if it was Nokia on Android. Nokia lost due to Elop the trojan and will continue losing.

"any kind pens..." I guess we can't use unkind pens.

If Nokia can't even proofread their ads, then........

I have a hunch that this was fan-created, due to lack of proper kerning, proofreading, and the graphics for the iphone looking more like those for a Galaxy S3. I can't confirm this as I'm at work and don't have access to Facebook right now.

iphone is just a piece of crap, people buy's this product because of its smooth touch, this is because you can not customize it according to you like you can do in Android devices..................................

You can't customise this either, other than moving tiles around, which ain't much better than moving icons around on the iPhone. Crap logic for crap people.

im an apple fan, and must confess that the lumia920 is on point...check out any youtube video on it, the phone rocks...apple has a lot of work to do, i personally think they should take a year or two off and just meditate until they get enlightenment and hopefully come out with a truly revolutionary phone

Well it is easy rest on one's laurels when the masses flock to each iteration of the iphone. The apple users are rabid and loyal, so apple really does not have to do much. With this iteration the hardware is kicked up a notch, along side the data aspect. So revolutionary is not the word for apple, the familiar UI and app store is all that is needed.

As for the Lumia 920, HTC 8S and 8X those are tough choices. I love them both equally...The samsung one, I am not warm to at all.........

this is silly... when will Nokia and Samsung understand that iPhone popularity isnt based off features... its the trust and relationship they gained with the fans...

most of my friends with iphones had no idea that ios 6 is the new operating system... all they know is that apple has a new iphone and they want it...

its the way that you "present" the features to customers that convert them into idolizing your products.

apple doesn't have to make a reply spec sheet against these two companies... it's silly...

I feel for Nokia.. for getting desperate already on their phones,, loved their N8 but their Lumia phones will collect dust on shelves,before taking on the big boy Apple . nokia should take down LG, HTC, or Sony get confidence and followers. tha ones here cheer for Windows phone but most of them buy Android... that doesn't help does it

and perfect example of your fanboyism. ''big boy apple'' seriously grow up mate

nokia's new phones (the 820 and 920) are better phones then the iphone its fact, simple clear facts.

wp8 will hopefully fit perfectly and give customers more choice, then theres BB and apparently firefox OS. all will benefit the consumer

Your simple clear facts are neither simple, clear, nor factual. I can argue specs and ecosystem and various other things, but intelligent debate is clearly not your strong suit. Have fun with your trumped up hatred of something.
