Nokia uses an infographic to tout the Lumia 920's advantages

Samsung has definitely had its time to poke fun at Apple's recently announced (and soon to be released) iPhone 5. Last weekend, Samsung released a print ad that proclaimed "It doesn't take a genius" to select a Galaxy S III over the iPhone 5. Yesterday, Samsung got even bolder by releasing a new TV commercial that not only poked fun at the iPhone 5, but also the rabid fans that camp out for hours (if not days) to be the first to have the latest Apple smartphone.
Now, Nokia is having its fun in the sun with an infographic that touts the advantages of its Windows Phone 8 device -- the Lumia 920 -- over the iPhone 5. Naturally, Nokia points to a number of Lumia 920 highlights including wireless charging and the ability to use the touch screen with gloved hands.
So what do you guys think? Does Samsung or Nokia make a better case in countering the iPhone 5 juggernaut?

fire the marketing department

PC/tech companies in general need to fire their marketing departments completely. Lumia 920 doesn't exactly roll off the tongue. Or how about the Asus G75VW laptop with the 3720QM processor. Yeah, everyone's going to remember that one. Or how about that new Samsung UN50EH6000FXZA TV? People are lining up for that one!

They should have just called it the Nokia Lumia "2" or whatever.

Then used the extra letters and numbers for lesser models... At-least then the top-end phone will be easy for consumers to recognize and remember, a single digit is much easier than 3 for the average joe.

Reclaimer, did you just defend the iPhone!? They also list the accessories for the iPhone as Earpods (only) where the Lumina has JBL PlayUp Portable Speaker and Wireless Bluetooth Headphones. Both of these accessories are not included of course.

No? I just think that's some...interesting marketing speak they choose to use. I guess the use of "super", which is kinda amateurish.

It's like if you said you had a sandwich and I said "oh yeah I have a SUPER sandwich"

Why so serious? I just found it humorous.

Sorry, meant to be humorous :)

I think they really are getting desperate at this point. Going head to head with the iPhone 5 and SG3 is super sandwich impossible.

I think they are crazy too. I mean, it's kind of a reach at this point. Set your sights a bit lower/realistic for now.

My Lumia 920 commercial would be some average guy holding the phone and kind of shrugging with a caption at the bottom:

The New Lumia 920 Windows Phone 8 Phone.'s better than a Blackberry

Here's an idea, Reclaimer. Why don't you reserve judgement until you've actually used a Lumia 920?
Sorry, that would be much to hard for a flaming troll such as yourself, because you might actually enjoy the device.

It can get really cold in Finland and many other countries. Having to take off your gloves to be accurate on your phone sucks.
