    I just lost out on a free angry whopper from burger king thanks to nokias poor camera algorithm . i got a text and took out my phone and the bk manager laughed and said wow someone actually bought a nokia brick. i said its not heavy well maybe compared to that pos iphone 5 and he whipped out his iphone 5 and he said your camera sucks and w8 is only good on tablets. we eventually had a 1 photo camera off and asked another worker to choose the best picture of the menu on the wall. she said his was clearer. Mine had the usual camera softness. so i had to buy the angry whopper. damn u nokia damn u all to ****! (charlton heston).

    Go back and challenge him for a night shot. Or wait until Nokia updates the camera processing thing.

    No. Nokia didn't do anything to make you lose the challenge. You did. You did a camera-off based ONLY on a day photo knowing full well about the camera software issue.

    ...Makes perfect, logical sense! I'm going to run a marathon and act shocked when I lost because my leg is broken. No. It's absolutely Nokia's fault because they launched a new line of phones and you got first gen.

    Yes, the infamous Burger King phone picture challenge, an intelligent way to gauge phone quality. Well, joeynox, you may want to switch to Android, it's not a bad phone OS. I had it for a while and it wasn't bad but I prefer WP8.

    I know you won't go back to iPhone as you yourself stated in an earlier post 'I had iPhones and IOS for a ling time and in bored with the phones (sic)' and when your 920 was delayed 'I wanted today (sic) but I guess my I can deal with the iPhone for a few days more). So you yourself have stated the iPhone is worthless, it bores you, and you can only 'deal' with it for a few days. I don't think you should go through life in such a miserable state because of your own stated belief the iPhone is crap for your needs. Life is too short to be stuck with the iPhone if it makes you miserable, and WP8 doesn't seem to be to your liking either. Give Andorid a try.

    It's the OS fault for being restricted. Imagine if you pulled out an 808 PureView instead..... haha

    I don't understand everyone. My Lumia is fine. The only thing that is different is the sound of my vibrate but I'd hardly call it a rattle. Its definitely not return worthy. Mine is yellow, my camera has no soft spots, my battery is fine. Why are there so many "problems"?

    The OS being "restricted" has nothing to do with the camera. The 808 has a much bigger sensor and is 41 mp versus 8 mp. Also Symbian sucks and only Europeans can tolerate it for the most part.

    So true.

    Or they could hit their phones against each other over and over again. The one that breaks first loses! 😊

    If the manager is asking one of his/her employees for a clear winner, why would the employee pick the customer? If another customer was asked that would be another story.

    Good point. The employee will always be biased in favor of his/her boss. Not exactly what you would call an impartial judge.

    I guess that's possible but I know these people. The BK is down the block from my apt so I tend to visit there quite often. But even if she was being biased I also agreed that his was more detailed which made his look slightly better.
