We need those to shut trolls up such as you because you\they say WP doesn't support 1080p screens , 2gb ram or quad core processors before MS announced that they will bring support for those stuff to WP and you will seeee !!!

and by the way those specs are not made by android (google) they are made by companies such as LG , SNAPDRAGON and the camera is made by Carl Zeiss and Nokia soo No its not Android specs

It's first to Android, 2nd to Apple, and least not but very last to Nokia Wp™

Till now it dosen't support it, and also Nokia never believes in high specs®

the lumia 920 beats all android cameras hands down even though the s4 has a 13 mp camera and a quad/octa processor the lumia 920 camera is still better and the lumia 920 runs smoother and faster than the s4 with a dual core processor

imagine it with a quad core snapdragon 600 or 800 :)

Gotta disagree with you there. There was a comparison done recently and both the HTC One and the GS4 produced better pics than the 920. Granted there were a few situations where the 920 did have better shots, but overall those two devices were better.

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
