Nokia posts funny Condescending Wonka meme to take a jab at Samsung's S4 Zoom again


After showing how enthusiasts taped a DSLR-style lens to a Lumia 920, Nokia posted a fan-created meme to expand on the jab against the not-very-portable Galaxy S4 Zoom. Listing a popular Condescending Wonka meme this time, it hints at the 25mm thick in the lens part camera with phone functions that is the S4 Zoom.

Nokia is taking pride in solving the zoom dilemma with the Nokia 808 PureView and the upcoming EOS handset by using lossless zoom without any protruding contraptions and overly unwieldy dimensions, so it recently invited us to an event to see the "Zoom. Reinvented.", where the EOS is expected to take the stage.

Well, i dont see anything wrong in taking a jab at a competitor. Many competitors do it nowadays.

glad that Sony is mature enough to not get involve in such kid fight.

They were not scared of Microsoft (which is scarier than Nokia, HTC and Samsung) at the E3...

Nope, Sony is just as childish putting up a bar graph of PS4 VS XBONE, saying 4 > 1. Not funny. But i do still agree pS4 is the better console given u can play games offline.

No it isn't- it's merely the cheaper of the 2 consoles.

have you tried both? ofcourse you havent, come on in terms of gameplay these will both be very similar its the restrictions people arent happy with you saying its the better gaming console implies you have played both, you havent obviously

Gaming PC sends regards to lesser creatures (Xbox and PS4)

the real hardcore gamers will ofcourse have real gaming pc's that are miles ahead of the off the shelf consoles theres no real competition

im sure you can play offline on the xbox one, but the xbox has to be online at least once a day sort of like reporting to base. i agree Microsoft really lost the plot with these restrictions

sony don't want to come in camera phone fight because sony already realize it when nokia release 808 41mp.

not interested in Windows 8 phone period. I only use FOSS whenever possible for my own and future generations sake.

I find iOS is very useful for entertaining future generations. Hand a toddler an iPad and you could go take a nap for a couple hours.

Sony makes their own cameras I'm pretty sure they could come up with a technology for smartphones that would pwn Nokia

If they can get any carriers to sell it. I have a hard time taking Sony seriously as a smartphone leader when it's so hard to buy their flagships in the US. Did they piss everyone off or something?

Good point, but the Xperia z is coming to tmobile Idk why other carriers don't sell their phones

I don't think they can pwn Nokia. Even Sony can't beat i5's camera.

making camera is not big deal but making one that fits in mobil is one big challange sony like slimest phones and cameras dont let that happen

Nope but I bet it fits in to lots of women's handbags which I bet is who it will be aimed at. Nokia seems blind to what is going on perhaps why samsung is at the top and they are at the bottom

if you have a handbag all the time why the hell you buy a stupid ugly chubby thing?go buy a frakingly sexy sony dslr at same price or maybe even less.

16. joey_sfb

Posts: 6794; Member since: Mar 29, 2012

because Sony dslr don't take call. The fact is that millions of people would still buy it when they need a better camera on phone running the latest Android OS. Samsung let their sales do the talking.

Thinking of replacing my 3 years old Canon compact camera with the S4 zoom if their quality is up to standard.

Keep using the Canon. If you want an al-in-one device, there are better ones coming. The Zoom is more or less a placeholder

so the zoom is for women, funny how no one knew this but you, the zoom isnt aimed at women, considering people say the iphone is a womans phone due to its small screen and size. but no now women want bulky hard to hold phones god thank you for enlightening us, and nokia arent on the bottom and samsung wont remain on top. look at HTC and sony there really gaining traction this year and samsung are showing signs of an apple mentality. small updates spec boost and new device. plus the saturating of the market wont do them any favors why are you trying to defend samsung's lazy attempt of a device? they didnt even try with the zoom...
