call me a skeptic but if that reflection wasn't shown, Nokia wouldn't have said anything and would have kept as a video from the phone's camera...

You can see it's fake from miles away. Some scruffy, skinny hipster hanging out with such a hottie? With her being all enthusiastic and flirty? Unpossible.

Negative reporting on Nokia's newest WP8 devices before even running a story announcing the device?

Biased journalism on Toms?
What! No, never! -_-

Never underestimate the power of nerdrage.

Who cares? Every commercial showing how a product looks or accomplishes something is only ever a dramatization to indicate functionality. It's never the actual thing doing its actual function.

Maybe, though that ATIV S from Samsung might be a solid contender as well.

there are a few phone comertials that use real phones, i know this because i trust the people who made the video to not lie.

that said, look at the "real" video... i would take the video on the left apposed to the right because its over all sharper, any of the jitteryness can be taken out in post, and if your video wanst worth going through post, you didnt film anything worthwhile.

I love the idea of a phone with a camera that could actually be described as "good", rather than "good, considering it's on a cell phone", but this Nokia kerfuffle is making me a little leery about going for the 920 (I'm already on the fence over the non-removable battery). I guess I'll have to wait and see...

You KNOW because you TRUST? Excuse me, but that's an antithesis. A naive one at that.

Still, Lumia 920 is an excellent phone. I'm tired of seeing apple's bored UI. Time to switch to Nokia or one one of the Android devices.

Totally, you beat me to it
...
A full 24 hours later than every other tech website in the world and the first article for Motorola is:-

Motorola launch 3 brand new Droid RAZR handsets

Whereas the first article for Nokia is:-

Nokia Admits Lumia 920 Video Wasn't Shot with Actual Phone

Impartial, look it up in the dictionary Tom's, because this is either negative towards Nokia or indirectly negative towards Microsoft, you really should have just posted a story about the 2 new handsets before opening with a broadside, but thanks for trying to make our minds up for us

So is Nokia encouraging me to both not wear a bike helmet and to use a handheld device while riding (both of which are illegal where I live)? Well if it gets an ugly hipster a hot chick then I guess its worth it.

I don't know how the new 920 is, but the 900 Lumina was not comfortable to hold. It felt like the iPhone with the front screen popping out. Where is the ergonomic design and comfort.

Good call. I've never received a pizza from Domino's that looks anything like the commercial.

So true, but it allways make me happy when the reality is same as commercial... But it is so rare thing to see that it belong allmost in the same category as Dodo!
That is why we needs sites and organizations that test these products! Like how many times we have seen that monitor contrast value is pure lie or when someone claims that normal autostereo can produce something like 50+50+50+50 wats of power, when the best theorethical calue is much, much smaller... *sigh* Commersial reading skill has to be subject in the primary school!

christarpApple commercials. Just trollin'.

Fixed that for ya. And just for the fun of it, Apple commercials are just as fake as any other. You can read in tiny prints something in the like of "actual video is sped up. Experience may vary", proving the UI is not as smooth as they want us to believe it is.

Idiot much? Just because Nokia dropped the ball on this one TH should write bad about new Motorola phones, or maybe write nice and fluffy stuff about Nokia dropping the ball on this one because Motorola has couple new phones? Let me guess, you think that Fox News is fair and balanced?
