But Nokia is known good in Asia, not in Europe™

I've never seen any one with Lumia phones, very rare™

Apple, Samsung, Sony Htc are commonly seen, not Nokia™

Yes, it's certainly the high road to wave around the results of a rigged contest as a reason you should buy their phone.

As with before, thumbing me down doesn't erase the truth. Just keep an eye on Microsoft and Ben Rudolph's Twitter feed next time Laptop or some other online site posts a poll about which phones are best. Smartphone Madness was a particularly egregious example, with all of the finalists somehow being Windows Phones. Impossible result without the incessant plugging from MS and their ilk.

They may or.may not be rigged, but if we're fair, Microsoft isn't the first -nor will it be the last- to have seemingly or actually rigged results. Iphones were having that (dis)honor not long ago, as do apple computers, Ferrari does it for comparisons for magazines and automotive TV/internet shows, as has gm and Toyota on occasion off the top of my head, Ford loses ratings because its customers can't figure out how to use a touchscreen interface, etc etc etc

It was a very clever, fun and entertaining ad, I'm glad it's done the job at popularizing the 920. Finally Microsoft have pulled it off with a successful advertisement! Finally!

Yeah but the whole "Scroogled" campaign is just plain weird, dumb and childish. Microsoft should really as a whole make smarter advertisements. Like Apple and Samsung.

That's what I love about Apple's marketing, they mainly "talk" about themselves. All their marketing is based solely around them. Compared to Microsoft and Samsung who make many advertisements attacking Apple and others. In Apple advertisements you see no other phone but the iPhone which puts emphasis on the product. In this Windows advertisement you're more distracted by the populous amount of iPhone and Samsung owners.

Yeah except for with Apple they act like they're the only ones who ever made a goddamn smartphone, which is disingenuous in of itself.

Yes, it may sound cockey and get on everyone's nerves, but it works. That's all marketing and advertising need to do, work well.

@timmehor: the initial Surface and Windows Phone 8 ads, and the current Outloo ads, only showed the devices with no comparisons. This ad, apparently, is more effective.

You're forgetting Apple's "Mac & PC" ads... Apple built up a lot of their current brand recognition by trouncing on pc's (users).

Much better ad than those awful dancing Surface ads. It was really funny. Still didn't make me want a WP phone.

Well, all OS have their own unique feature, and also their own pros and cons as well, I think sooner or later, in future there will be a phone comes with dual boot to Android and Windows. Don't fight, Don't switch, why not having both? Ops, did I left out iOS?

What is microsoft is coming to say???
I have seen fair share of wp trolls who fight with others...
Trolls are in every camp..but the fact is wp camp is very small...
according to this logic if wp became famous..switch to another OS...

Have you tried WP's keyboard? It is excellent. My sole complaint with it is that it doesn't stretch wider when the screen is in landscape mode
