Nokia tells Samsung to "have a break"
0. phoneArena 04 Sep 2013, 18:35 posted on
You might expect Nokia to be a bit quiet until the proposed sale to Microsoft goes through, but Nokia apparently wants to stay in the spotlight any way it can, even if it means being negative. Nokia was obviously not all that impressed by Samsung's newly announced devices today, because the Nokia Germany account told Samsung to "have a break"...

I do hate Samsung's aggressive ads making fun of Apple, and I was slightly annoyed by the Android Kitkat video, and generally all "2edgy4me" ads or statements that aim at spiking controversy. But at least Samsung, Google, and Apple are big enough companies at the top of the food chain right now and I can actually take them seriously when they fling insults. When companies like Microsoft and Nokia pretend that the average person cares about their brand and will listen I just laugh.

samsung the main reason behind Nokia's fall
Birth of Galaxy S stated nokia fall
and s2 made it push more
and s3 made it more deeper
and s4 made it sold to microsoft
just within 2 years Samsung made Nokia Sold

I have nothing but love for Nokia. I sold my Nokia stock, bank a nice profit. I'm not married to any OS. But I do

Hmm...much as many dislike Samsung's use of plastic, this ad seems to be purely to troll (and as some have mentioned, to look butthurt). Jokes and the Nokia 3310 aside, you do know that Lumias are breakable right... Rather than troll they should stick to promoting their own methods of building phones, like what HTC did in their One ads...

This looks more like MS than Nokia. Over the years, I remember Nokia only promoting own products and no badmouthing competitors.

At least this one doesn't make them look stupid and bad like the GS4 zoom dissing ad. They are actually dissing Samsung's second tier high end phone this time.
The GS4 zoom Nokia diss was so retarded because they were comparing their top of the line with Samsung's pawn or waterboy or something else really low on the food chain, the GS4 zoom. That was like the equivalent of a 6'6 200 pound male saying that they are stronger than a 5'2 hundred pound girl. Nokia really needs to fire their PR department, they obviously do not know how to do this dissing stuff properly without making Nokia look desperate.
Having the 1020 ad on some beat up old truck side next to this gleaming, larger, and flashy GS4 zoom add doesn't help subliminally either. It hurts them more than anything.

Samsung have become succesful by solving All Nokias mistakes they could not solve themselves,just look at Nokias slide up phones,o.k from the begining then become very wobbly,am Samsung solved this by Bringing out Spring Up Sliders,Samsung left Symbian for Android, but Nokia fell to Microsofts Plan an got Mr Elop in an they gave into Windows,an look at Nokias position now Miles an Miles behind Samsung,so please shut up Nokia

It's like an old sinking ship making fun of the biggest and most powerful ship as it sails by.
You'd think Nokia would atleast go down with some dignity, guess times are very desperate for them now, how the mighty have fallen.

The only thing I see in this comment chain is Sammy fanboys who are calling Nokia butthurt, but are butthurt themselves. Just because Lumia doesn't have access to so many games doesn't mean you'll die. I have an android and the only apps I have are 2 games and social networks, all, except for instagram, which are available one way or another in the windows phone marketplace. If it's games you want, get a console. The Note 3 is awesome but if you think it's a complete must have upgrade over the Note 2 then I think you should look in the mirror and see who's the fanboy.
