New 'Anti-iPhone' Nokia Lumia 1020 Ad



Microsoft has posted a new video on its Windows Phone YouTube channel. As usual, it’s a short clip that mocks the iPhone 5’s photo sensor and claims that the Nokia Lumia 1020’s 41-megapixel camera with six physical lenses is a lot better, which is quite obvious even without watching the ad.

Here’s the description of the clip:

A kids's play is one of those times when you want to get the perfect shot. But most phones aren't capable of capturing quality photos at a distance. Even if it's just a few rows back. With the Windows Phone Nokia Lumia 1020 you get 41 megapixels so every seat is the best seat in the house.

You may watch the ad below. What do you think about it?
