    Default VIDEO: Nokia Mocks Apple and Jabs at iPhone 5's Camera


    Either Nokia is auditioning for Saturday Night Live or the tech maker's newest ad is a legitimate jab at the camera on Apple's iPhone 5.

    We're guessing it's not the former.

    In the company's newest ad, Nokia effectively punts what some call the haughty overtones of Apple's various ads touting how the iPhone is used more than any other phone to capture photos of the memories we wish to preserve forever.

    Nokia has a different message for consumers, as articulated through the shear genius of mockery. At first, you may actually think you're watching an ad for Apple's iPhone... but, quickly, you discover the truth.

    "At Nokia, we prefer to build for quality, not quantity," a voice representing the Helsinki-based tech firm says leading to a side-by-side comparison of photos which purportedly shows the iPhone 5 camera's inferiority to Nokia's technology.

    A marketing masterpiece or a slap in the face that will backfire? Check out the ad below and decide for yourself.

    I don't know what their doing wrong? But my iPhone5 take night time and other pics just fine. Wondering if they turned off the HDR on purpose to make the pics look crappy? Sorry i still wouldn't buy a Windows phone either, even the newest one with the 41MP camera LOL.

    I do just love these kind of ads...
    "Let's make the iPhone look bad with... OUR CAMERA!"
    "That should convince them to switch from an iPhone to a Windows Phone."
    ...sure. A camera will make me drool for that.

    look at 0:29 video says afterwards that the pic is taken with no flash, then why did the flash went on
    however i agree that lumia 925 has the best camera in the market at the moment, if they had a better store (&apps) i would have thrown my iphone long time ago

    its a focus assist light, not the flash. It goes off before the photo is even taken to well..assist with proper focusing in low light situations.

    Try not to use "WM" instead of "WP" next time and people might take your comment seriously.

    Seriously, companies need a reality check and advertise the competitive advantages of their OS. Oh wait.....there are no competitive advantages for Windows Phone.....Nokia....carry on.

    My coworker just grabbed one of these phones in yellow. While it does take nice pics and vids, that is the end of the show. The credits roll and everyone walks away..without applause

    It was a honest mistake but I can always count on at least one person on a forum to be "that guy" so thanks. I'm not looking for anyone to "take my comment serious" just voicing my opinion, this is not a popularity contest to me.
