Nokia fakes Lumia 920 PureView video, issues an apology for it - read the full textYesterday, Nokia announced the Lumia 920 with a PureView camera, except here, PureView did not mean the pixel oversampling that we saw on the 808 PureView but rather the use of optical image stabilization to achieve steadier low light photos and videos. To demonstrate this effect, Nokia...

So what if the videos are fake? I believe that's why EVERYONE has common sense, to buy or not to buy a phone, right? Even if Nokia, or whoever manufactures a phone that has a Holographic,4D, or whatever, as long as people are bounded by the bias they have for the brand they want, no phone will be good enough. And yes, I love Android, and I love Sony (Xperia x10 mini pro, Arc S, Ray, Xperia Pro, Xperia Play, Xperia Z), but I have a Lumia 928 and an S4 as well. My point is, if you think something is not good enough for you, then you have to try it first to know if it really is not good enough, before you start criticizing. Or maybe the real problem is, it's not the produc that's not good enough, you just don't have the money to buy it?

Most Problems company face today are strategies taken at Senior Level without even bothering about the Customer Likes and Market sentiments.
Nokia's fall is One such incidence which will be a Life time Lesson for Many Corporates to come...
Lets Discuss One By One..
1. Recruiting Stephen Elop from Microsoft to Nokia is the Biggest Blunder this idiots have done. Reason most of the People out of Microsoft will fail miserably because not knowing anything about Market or Current Scenario world is facing... Other reason this guys Produce Software where as he joined in a company which is totally into a HANDHELD Device Space.
2. Nokia has strong markets in Asia pacific Region which is more complex, Price sensitive and Dynamic and has more cut throat challenges from Local competitors like china, India and Korea. One has to offer fully Loaded first grade Mobile at decent Price.
3. Nokia's initial Problem started way back from 2004 where Symbian was unable to conquer its customers and its Busy Clients were coming too often to its Service center all over the world. Nokia though Noticed But didn't Make effort to improve its Software until the MIGHTY APPLE conquered the Place. Then You Made Belle and The Loyal clients made you silly by abhorring your Mobiles.
4. Your Downfall started in 2009 when you choose to partner Microsoft when Microsoft itself was falling. The Downfall was inevitable for You.
Correction Can be done Even Now.....
1. Just Try to Adopt Android.. All Major Mobiles are doing the same.. HTC, Samsung, Sony, LG....
2. Send Elop Out and Levy a hefty Penalty for Choosing the Microsoft and ask him to return all the Kick Bags
3. Amend the Agreement with Microsoft to Have android in your Plate..

Have an Eco system to entertain customers and encourage the Lively hood of your Loyal Employees.

It is funny how come Nokia get's bashed right before or after a new IScheisse is released. First with the n8(you could see only lies and b**Sh** reviews all over) Now the n8 is still showing it's power. But, to late for nokia. And now with this Lumia 920. IScheisse 5 got released, nokia get's bashed, again by media lies and manipulating bu**s**t. Don't believe nobody guys. I tell you that this Lumia will be 100 milion times better then iphone5 and that big screen walking S3. As the n8 proved is better then the I4 and 4S... even without that 30 milion useless apps. Right now i start to think that nokia has a ISpy inside. Let's be serious, if somebody really wants to manipulate and lie. You would have never "discover" that. Apple is doing it everyday, i don't see none complaining of something:-J.

Stop look the brand just look the specs and performance.

They use another cam for presentation, that means video from lumina 920 is not good enough for presentation

still nokia has the best camera phone 808 41 mp prevew and lumia 920 is the same as 808 or maybe better (in camera) ...

and this phone has a lot cool futures that Samsung and apple dnt have ..

if ur talking about a 920 phone then u should wait tell its comes out and see it ..

by the way , apple FAN boys are so happy with a phone that dosnt support flash player or copy/paste form a computer without using a iTune (waste time) ...maybe u need a pc or a laptop to support ur phone without it ur phone is nothing

> In reply to what wow @ 2012-09-09 15:23 from 3RM{ - click to readJust wait for the phone to come out, and then start to comment about fake... be shore, even if they used a normal camera, 920 is not gonna be behind quite at all... So you people must stop commenting higgledy-piggledy bu*l&&* and accept the fact's for Goodness sake. Nokia are the best in mobile technology. That's it. While others are bragging about their systems, nokia is proud of it's technology, and it should be! You people must stop denying this... if iphlok or salmsulg had a 41mp camera, there would have been a feast parade praising the so smart incredible technology that they came up with. Oh but there is nokia who is the smart here, so, it is "fake". Those were the first words i've heard about 808. Then, after the proof. What to do with a 41mp camera? This were the "after" words...jez, would you people get a life>:)

Ups, here comes the trolls discovering that nokia was always fake bla bla bla. They were fake since they started in mobile technology. They were so fake MAAAAAAn, they were selling mobile toys and you people were in fact spoking with a robot that was faking the one you've called. In fact they used only fake technology until know and from now on. And the first real mobile call made by humanity was with an iphlok, which is also the first smartphone and the only gadget in the world that took pictures. Grow up people!

Nokia didn't fake nothing, you people need to stop manipulate and letting your selves manipulated. It is a just a youtube video. On the nokia site was written clearly that this advertisement video was shot with a normal camera... Fade of Trolls.

Good job Nokia!
You start your new line of products with a blatant lie!
Guess your whole product line will be based on lies in specs and false advertisment. :/

ha ha ha!!!

Seriously... Many folks already assume the "sample" images and videos are captured with a different device than the one being advertised. That's why most manufacturers state in the fine print (a.k.a. disclosure) the words "simulated images", etc. However, to unexpectedly witness the "simulation" creates a sense of deception in some people's minds.
Yeah, the crew screwed-up. I think, in show business, that's called "continuity"... and the crew messed it up. A lesson well learned, I'm sure.

All they do, and Samsung, and Apple has been demonstrated many times that even the published photos which boasts Apple and Samsung are fake and actually use professional cameras, these are just marketing tricks and image to give better product, there is nothing new under the sun and it will not be the last, believe me ...
