I'm not really into zombie flicks, but that was so well done if it were a movie on TV I wouldn't change the channel. That said, I'm not sure they were supposed to be "zombies", per se, moreso people who had been stunned by the flash (hence the red eyes and brightened skin tones), but if one interprets iphonies as zombies, well, I won't really disagree with that :)

Love me some WP, and I am fine with iPhone- honest I am. But I am with the more level headed posters here.... it was touting it's camera, and slamming bad pictures washed out by the insane amount of overkill from the vast majority of LED flashes. Camera's are easily one of the top five reasons users select a phone these days. If you have a great camera, and Nokia does, flaunt it. I will say one thing.... this comercial does not do enough to get a brand identity. It showed the Nokia once?? Did it use actual photos side by side to prove its point? Nope. So, I will slam a good idea wasted. But attack iPhone users?? Nah. Knee jerk reaction. Fun commercial, and very original, but not executed real well for the device it is supposed to be promoting.

I Agree, this was poorly executed. My guess is that Nokia used the internal marketing department instead of a professional advertising agency on this one. Either way, someone didn't read the brief properly.

This one completely missed the mark. Go back to whoever did the wedding feud commercial, this one bites.

Meh. This was weak. Nokia lost my attention when they went Windows Phone only. If they had adopted Android or something then they might have stayed relevant. Yeah I know there are WP fans out there. And more power to you. But WP isn't my cup of tea, sorry.

Awesome. Love it. Truly the king of smartphone camera. Can't wait to get my hands on a Nokia after so many years. Tired of customizing and installing crappy CM roms of Android all the time.

Honestly WP start doing well but still can't compete with IOS and Android. Apple and Google/Android working hard even the new Android leader Sundar Pichai register himself as IOS 7 developer! PS. All the respect to the shadow (Ninja) warrior SONY :)

Oh victor.H. oh why is he still at phonearena if he can't even understand the point of the ad. Ad tells "if photo is it taken under flash face tuns to white and there is obvious red eye " why do these authors write articels? phonearena has pathetic writers.

My God, it used to be true - could still be - but, I do not see it as much as 3 years ago...however, wait for the iphone 5S release.
