Yes, but I never let it get personal or resort to name calling, even if said fanboy is being completely stubborn and unreasonable.

The N95? Are you really comparing the S4 Zoom to a 6 year old phone? I mean, gosh, Motorola phones must be bricks, too. Look at the MicroTac.

Motorola made bricks back when Nokia and everyone else incuding LG and Samsung made bricks. Both the N95 and Lumia 920 were WAY too bulky for their times and if you would go look at an old N95 review, chances are you will see it being referred to as a brick of epic proportions just like how the Lumia 920 reviews always mention bulkiness or weight in the first paragraph and throughout the paragraph. These Nokia phones, that are trying to be normal phones, are HUGE. No denying that. They are thicker than their competition by far and they are marketed towards the average smartphone user. Nokia calling out a manufacturer for a product that is marketed to a really small niche is just plain retarded, sorry. That is truth. It is like like a smartphone manufacturer calling out a tablet manufacturer on size. It is stupid and maybe that is why Nokia is failing hard.

First off, Nokia is not "failing hard". They're rising in sales and market share compared to where they were a year ago, and that counts for a lot. The 920 is a cohesive, if large design. They made design and feature choices that make the phone significantly bigger than your average HTC or Samsung, chiefly: Built in wireless charging Solid (ie not flimsy) polycarbonate construction Take away those two, and voil¬ća, the Lumia 925, which is not a brick. But back to my initial point, you bringing up the N95 in the first place was ridiculous. Everything 6 years ago was comparitively bulky. Live in the now.

That is the thing. The N95 WAS comparatively bulky...even 6 years ago when all phones were fat. To put things in perspective, this is the equivalent of a Fat family calling the fat kid,who belongs to a skinny family of 20, fat. That is just wrong on every single level. That was my point. I am not the one going off topic like that idiot Chaoticrazr over there.

You're entitled to your opinion, but you're not entitled to your own reality. The Lumia 920 is a chunky smartphone by 2012 standards. The Lumia EOS will be a chunky smartphone by 2012 standards as well. The S4 Zoom is a GSM camera. As a smartphone, it will be chunky by 2007 standards. That's why Nokia can talk smack.
