Microsoft has finally launched the follow-up to "Smoked by Windows Phone" and this time, Meet Your Match isn't so much concerned with being quicker than your phone, but why a Nokia Lumia 920 matches up to your needs better than your current phone...

thx for the info, but Nokia won't make the sales u all saying it will, because Android is a crowded market (Samsung, HTC, Sony Ericsson, LG, Motorolla, Acer....etc) and only Samsung is making profit, and some people when u say Android, they think only Samsung.

Nokia might have a chance, but it will need a lot of work to distinguish their Android UI from others, and a lot of money.

What does it matter? They did with Smoked by windows phone for Lumia 820 or whatever and it never been a hit. It gonna be the same with Lumia 920.

these are "feel good" videos. I like the soundtrack too.

For the photo vid, I figured the flash should go off when he is taking pictures. From the results, it seems like the flash was off and the lighting was quite dark. Also, I can't tell whether or not he turned up the brightness all the way on the Windows Phone compared to the brightness setting on the iPhone.

With regard to taking videos, if in fact it is comparing a new phone to a 2 year old phone, then it is definitely an unfair comparison. I do feel that the antishaking technology on the Lumina is well represented and in a more honest way than the commercial a few months back.

As for the texting comparison, the WP had some prep on the home screen ahead of time. I'm not familiar with the iPhone messaging. On my Android phone, I can set up groups. As I normally don't send messages to the same group of people on a regular basis, I wouldn't set this up. The video does highlight the WP feature of groups and how you can place them on the home screen. If you do organise your contacts in groups and want to check group specific messages and updates, I can see how that is very useful.
