As part of its “Windows Phone Challenge,” Microsoft compares the camera capabilities of Nokia’s Lumia 920 and Samsung’s Galaxy S III in a new video ad.
Naturally, the Lumia — a Windows Phone — is portrayed as reigning supreme. The ad’s “real people” who own the Galaxy S III toss it aside for the Lumia after seeing that the latter produces photos “like a professional camera.”
But some YouTube viewers took issue with the fairness of the video’s comparison shot, which features a dazzlingly bright Lumia pic versus a dark and blurry Galaxy one.
“No one thought that the brightness of the [Galaxy] phone [was] turned all the way down? Also, the screen is dim because if it wasn’t then the soft keys would be lit up just like the Nokia,” said YouTuber Kenny Hudman.
The timing of the video — released Tuesday — is noteworthy, as it comes less than a week after Samsung launched its next-generation Galaxy S4. Microsoft has targeted Samsung in previous ads, indicating that it sees the Korean electronics giant as one of its top competitors.
