Nokia Lumia 920 parody ad featured image

When the iPhone 5 was officially unveiled, there were a lot of people that were underwhelmed. Bigger screen, a new connector and an extra icon row was what most people were latching on to, choosing to overlook other significant improvements such as the faster processor. Samsung immediately took the opportunity and released an ad that stacked the Galaxy SIII’s features against the iPhone 5, hinting that ‘it doesn’t take a genius’ to decide which phone is clearly better.

And now, Nokia Lumia 920 fans have joined the iPhone 5 bashing bandwagon and released their own version of the ad.

Similar to the original, Nokia fans compared the Nokia Lumia 920 against the iPhone 5 in key smartphone areas. While some may argue that “better” is subjective, there are some aspects where the Nokia Lumia 920 clearly trumps the iPhone 5.

The Nokia Lumia 920 has a significantly bigger screen with a crisper 1280 x 768 resolution, has longer talk and standby times, a better camera and larger default internal storage. The Nokia Lumia 920 also boasts of NFC and wireless charging, two features which Apple says they deliberately skipped for the iPhone 5 due to their impracticality. And like the original Galaxy SIII ad, the Nokia Lumia 920 is shown to have a list of features that far outnumber those of the iPhone 5.

While the ad featured above isn’t official, Nokia did release a short tweet making use of the Samsung ad’s ‘It doesn’t take a genius’ tagline:

Lumia 920: Wireless charging, amazing camera, screen you can use with gloves on and much more. No, it doesn’t take a genius. #swithctolumia

With all these creative parodies coming out, sometimes I wonder why these big companies don’t hire their fans to do their ads for them
