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?

Of course we care. We care about brand reputation. Apple has a 5 year reputation of OS updates, free apps in the App Store, neat and useful dock accessories, great games and apps in the App Store, synchronization of apps and data between iPhone/iPad/Mac/iPod, and generally one of the best phones in general.

Nokia may also have "one of the best phones", as well, but it doesn't have any reputation for OS updates, no reputation for accessories, not a lot of great games and apps, and certainly very little synchronization between the phone, PC, XBox, and tablet, though that should improve quite a bit with Windows 8, Surface, and future XBox releases; but that's all future and it's stupid to buy for future potential.

If you like reputation, I advise you check out everything Microsoft. They have a reputation for running the world for the passed 15-20 years. Doesn't really get better than that. Unless by reputation you more mean what other people think as opposed to the reality of the situation.

Just having some fun is all :)

You mean the reputation where people who bought WP7 could get an update to WP7.5 but not WP8, and people who bought WP7.5 got an update to WP7.8 but not WP8?

Where people actually have to wonder whether WP8 will see the upgrade to WP9, or just be stuck at WP8.5?

Apple has released iOS 4, iOS 5, and now iOS 6 on my original 2010 iPhone 4. That's the reputation I'm talking about.

Nokia invented the mobile market. It has over 20 years of cell crafting and support. Also, almost all communication tech that runs in a cell phone was created by them.

But no, they have no reputation in the market.

They have a reputation for being staid and conservative and old fashioned.

They stuck with resistive way too long.
They stuck phones with weak GPUs way too long.
They stuck phones with Symbian, instead of Maemo or MeeGo, way too long.

How is that going to help them sell phones against the likes of Apple, Samsung, and Google?
