Nokia Lumia 920 sample images found to be fake as well - read the full textIf it was not bad enough that Nokia faked the video stabilization portion of the Lumia 920 video (and later had to apologize for it), it seems they faked the part where they show still images as well. If you get past the initial portion of video that focuses on video stabilization, you'll...

Well as they say, if u can't MAKE it, then FAKE it! NOkia adopted this philosophy, but, un4tntly their video editing team is less than top notch n failed 2 remove d fatal flaw of d reflection of d cam n d van 4m d vid! NOkia may ac2ly hav made somethn decent here, but in trying 2 go 4 d overkill they stabbed themselved in d back! This has gotta b 1 of d best bloopers in recent corporate history! Oops! Lol!

Hm.. Well, i have to see the "real" performance of the camera before giving any opinion.

So i'll just wait to see GSMArena's review of the 920´s camera.

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.

This is kinda old news since the original Nokia apology stated that the entire OIS video was made to only demonstrate OIS, not the Lumia camera.

I don't understand why GSMArena is taking the rumor seriously. Its just a rumor made by some bloggers. In fact, Damian Dinning of Nokia confirmed that those photos are shot using 920.

And Nokia having a professional DLSR camera with them during the time of photo shooting doesn't necessarily mean the photo shown/published by nokia are from DLSR cam. They might just had used the DLSR cam for comparison. Nokia might just brought the DSLR cam with them just so that in case there are something which needs to be shot using it, the cam is readily available.

I still give Nokia the benefit of the doubt.

We will see if those photos are really fake once the 920 itself comes on the hands of mobile reviewers like GSMArena.

Symbian was there and am sure people said the same thing that the market share cant lie. With time, things change. My two cents. Am going to give Windows Phone 8 a chance. Most of the negatives are from people who have never used WP8, will try it on my own and decide.

Haters hate all you want, nobody's pushing you to get the 920. And although the fake samples in the ads are a let down, comparison is still a win

Either way, IMO functionality goes to the 920, but the fun goes to flagship androids.

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 ...

I prefer Clearblack displays to the SAMOLED. The Galaxy S2 and 3 are terrible in sunlight, and I found that Nokia phones to be better.

To be honest...

I really like the L920 - it looks fab, it looks smooth... and as an Android user, I can appreciate the tiles - I think they're a funky way of getting lots of information quickly...


The clincher for me in NOT getting this was the recent interview with Nokia executive VP Kevin Shields - he was asked why they didn't put a micro-sd card in when WP8 can support this. His response?

"We started with the premise that we wanted an uncompromised physical form,"... "To put an SD card slot in it would have defiled it."

A tiny slit in the side would have defiled the look of the phone?
Style over substance?
Forget it.
They're starting to sound like Apple...

(or maybe that didn't have time to implement it... either way... they've lost me as a customer..)
