New Nokia Lumia 925 ad makes fun of Apple iPhone 5 commercial

New Nokia Lumia 925 ad makes fun of Apple iPhone 5 commercial
Remember that television spot for the Apple iPhone 5 that showed users of the device snapping picture after picture with their phone? Recall the tagline from that spot? "Everyday, more photos are taken with the iPhone than with any other camera." As it turns out, Nokia doesn't disagree. But what it is saying in a new ad is that Nokia builds for quality, not quantity.

The Nokia ad also shows comparison action shots between the Apple iPhone and the Nokia Lumia 925 as well as photos showing how the Nokia device takes better pictures under low-light conditions. "Everyday, better photos are taken with Nokia Lumias than with any other mobile."

How will Apple respond? You can check out both the original Apple ad and the Nokia spot below.

Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!

I agree that WP is not bad Operating System and that it need to grow more. But talking about commercial, commercial was more about Nokia Lumia 925 and it's Pureview technology than about WP itself. And yes, good ad, I like it. :)

Nokia's ad is: Our smartphone sucks, but it takes better photos than the iPhone 5. Someone needs to fire the marketing head that approved the video.

Haha you dont really get the ad huh? It is made as iPhone 5's ad, but it shows that the phone takes better pictures... According to your reasoning, Apple is saying the same thing about its Iphone 5 ad.

But that's exactly what Apple promotes all the time... "Hey, our smartphone doesn't do as much as Android phones, but oooohhh look, we haz the apps and takesthe betterr fotos, and that's all that matters right?"

Until WP8/9 becomes a viable choice. PASSED. Sony/Samsung/HTC also has great camera phone with better platform ecosystem support. i like my cake and eat it too!

In order to be the best, you have to take out (one of) the best. Great add haha.

as much as i admire the ad.. i don't know how successful it will be... it mentions the iphone before their own product. So that means that if a viewer closes out before nokia is mentioned.. the last thing they hear is that part about the iphone.

the ad isnt directed at impulse buyers as many ads are. The ad is directed at iphone owners or people who doesnt know anything alse but iphone. For someone who dont have a smartphone your logic is sound, but for someone who allready owns a smartphone it wouldnt have done anything special for Nokia if the consumer just saw the Nokia logo, they already know about Nokia but most of them dont really know why they should buy Nokia anymore.

Idk why, but for some reason the way he said "Nokia" really really bothered me.

Nokia is shifting people's focus on its camera because they know windows lacks many apps and they can't do anything about it. Bu they should focus their attack on samsung and not iPhone.

A better thing that Nokia could do to increase their sales is to get rid of the carrier-exclusive marketing/selling. That has to be the definition of stooopid.

Nokia would do better to offer their own financing for their phones which could be unlocked and used on any carrier. Nokia would get the benefit of people who don't want to pay through the nose at a carrier and be stuck in a contract for 2 years, and we the customer would benefit from carriers having to greatly cut cellphone bills to stay competitive.

Advertising your best feature? Oh GOD what has happened to marketing today

I think Nokia knows that Samsung is in the first place while iPhone comes in at second. So being in third means they have to attack the competition nearest in distance, before they tackle farther. Gettit???

If Nokia actually sold any phones, it would make sense to tease apple.

It doesn't matter how many Nokias with Pureview technology were sold, because it still doesn't change the main idea of this commercial and things which were said in this commercial.

Nokia is more like Rocky and Apollo Creed. Apple better be careful because we all know how that ended.
