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?

I had to switch from a Samsung Focus to the iPhone 4s due to lack of device encryption required by my company. I am hoping to switch to Windows 8 in Nov and have been going through my iPhone apps I use and here is a quick list that Windows still does not have. I am sure I will find more when I actually take the time to look closer. 100k apps sounds like a ton until you look at the apps you actually personally use. Not to even mention the ones I will need to re-buy once I switch. I want to switch badly but isn't always that easy.

Tivo
Amazon price check
Xfinity
Watch ESPN
Chess with friends
myZenfolio
My Movies
Accessline
Denon
Tons of games!

No only my personal experience with me owning several android devices that had the software updates abandoned and the constant freezing and battery pulls. Because Im having a good experience on Windows Phone im wrong because I don't share the same opinion as you. I must be delusional.

Forget that I support mobile devices in the corporate workplace and see the issues the clients have. Nope Im not allowed to use my personal and professional experience to draw my own conclusions. I must choose what reclaimer tells me is the best or my life is lost.

By your logic I shouldn't buy a Wii-U because of the lack of games. I guess I shouldn't have bought a X-Box 360 at launch because of the lack of games. Hmm how did that work out? Sure there are a few exclusives but there are always equivalents to the genre.

With Windows Phone being the fastest growing app market and there being close to 120,000 apps I can certainly find something to keep myself entertained. But if its not 500,000 then its somehow lacking and you shouldn't buy it?

Im only interested in upgrading the camera on my device. Ive said in a number of posts I really want a low light camera that I can take everywhere. Thats the only feature I want. Im perfectly happy with my device but since Im close to upgrading I can upgrade and get the improved camera. I also want off Sprint because I dont have coverage in two key areas. My phone is super fast and responsive and all my apps work great. If I could upgrade the camera only sure.

Its you that ran out of excuses why people shouldnt consider the Windows Phone or an iPhone. You told everyone how silly they were about not having the latest highest spec product and completely avoided us telling you how our OS's are optimized and work perfectly fine. All you could brag about were android specs the specs and more specs well now Windows has the same specs and your running away oh the apps the apps you dont have this niche app and that one.

Way to change your tune Reclaimer and yes I recall seeing your post how you called yourself a Android Fanbois so funny you call us that.

Do you drink tigers blood? I only ask that because your winning.

"Our OS is 'optimized' and runs perfectly fine" is usually rhetoric you hear from iPhone users. You should watch out for that kind of hyperbole.

And what are you on about with me telling people NOT to buy Windows Phone? Where am I doing that? Just because I'm pointing out facts about the apps doesn't mean I'm saying you shouldn't buy one. That is YOU being ultra defensive and taking things personal about something you like. This is silly, GROW UP.

Ha ha I remember coming on to a review of some windows phone ages ago, and you 3 were at it then!!! At that time I was on reclaimed side, saying wp7 was a feature phone compared to android..it was...I javelin since gone on mad bought a galaxy s3...and I love it!!.

However, wp8 fixes many of the wrongs of wp7....it's MUCH better...a proper smartphone now...and the lumia 920 is the best of the bunch...I now think its right up there with the very best.

All microkia has to do is get the top 50 apps on the platform...the newest games...it doesn't matter about angry birds space...as long as they get the next newest one at the same time as everyone else....ditto with modern combat 4, nova 4, real racing 3...etc etc...all the old games are obsolete when the new version comes out..

So I was on reclaimed side before because I thought he had point about wp7..which was an over priced mid range smartphone.....now I disagree...wp8 is going to rock. :)

I mean, is it wrong of us to enjoy better hardware when ti does finally come around?

That platform didn't really feel like it needed it, as essentially EVERYONE has acknowledged, but that doesn't mean we are somehow anti-hardware and must now shun it when it comes around.

I mean, what SHOULD we have done?

By all means I can understand if you have a need for those then you might be limited in your device choice.

When Windows Phone 8 gains ground the niche items will come.

TivoMote is available for Windows Phone
Amazon app for windows Phone
ESPN Hub will be on Nokia exclusive I think for 3 months
The whole Zynga line is coming
Zenfolio has been out for a while
My Movies not familiar with
Accessline - Use visendo - seems very niche
Denon - now that Onkyo has one I expect Denon will soon enough.

Windows Phone has a lot of games but Windows Phone 8 is going to be excellent

Microsoft: 'Amazing games coming to Windows Phone 8'
http://www.nbcnews.com/technology/ingame/microsoft...
Windows Phone 8 also will support gaming middleware such as Havok Vision Engine, Autodesk Scaleform, Audiokinetic Wwise, and Firelight FMOD, as well as native DirectX-based game development.

Wait till the launch day in October I think Microsoft will have a few surprises. If not oh well stick with what you got its not a blackberry.

Im not reclaimer telling everyone anything other than an Android Samsung Galaxy S3 is garbage and you have ruined your life with your decision making. Im saying Windows Phone is a serious choice and a great OS dont overlook it. If Android didnt crash on me and I could upgrade some of the devices that I bought with it then I might be loyal to them but Im not and that makes me public enemy number one for Reclaimer.

There are also really high quality exclusive WP7-only games not ported to iOS or Android, for example Tentacles.

So guys don't you listen to lame trolls like Reclaimer who says there are no apps on WP7. You may get a pleasant surprise if you look closer.

The S3 is great, I didn't have a choice other than to buy a new phone and it was clear the S3 was the best option at the time. It still probably won't stop me from picking up a Win8 device though.

The market potential for Win8 is just better. There are more devs that are more interested in bringing solutions to that platform vs any other.

Has anyone here tried to DEVELOP software for Android? It's an AWFUL and painful experience. I've heard softer versions of that for the iPhone.

The reality of the situation is MS knows software better than ANYONE. They also know DEVELOPERS better than anyone.

Put two and two together. No quality devs, no quality apps.

Let's reserve condeming Win 8 until, oh, idk.... it actually releases and has been out fo rmaybe a month?

The Samsung SII and up have device encryption included. I have the Note 10.1 and am the Exchange administrator for our company and it is 100% fact that other than the Windows PC 6.1 devices this has THE best integration with ActiveSync. Samsung and Motorola are the only onese I've seen so far that handles Out of Office setup and the Samsung is the only device I've seen so far display free busy schedules. The Motorolas have an option to view it but it doesn't seem to work right.
The Playbook with its ActiveSync doesn't have free busy time.
Sadly, the Blackberry is for the current devices the best integrator with Exchange but nobody seems to care any more.
