    Windows phone makes up only 2.6% of the U.S smartphone market according to CNET (http://m.cnet.com/news/iphone-market-share-shrinks-as-android-windows-phone-grow/)

    Can't get mad at an underdog simply trying to survive.

    This is the way to do it? Plus the guy that got the email doesn't even own a 4S.

    Dear Microsoft, Perhaps you should devote your resources to making better products instead of trying to berate your competitor. Linux on my desktops since 2001. Several iOS devices. Soon to buy a Mac. The little respect I had for your company is on its way out the door.

    I'd send that to Microsoft if I knew their corporate email address.

    41 megapixels? I don't buy that. Any sensor small enough for a phone that's 41MP probably has photosite so small the images from it are extremely grainy.

    I wish people weren't obsessed with megapixels; they mean very little when it comes to image quality once you've over 6 or so.

    Yeah, and instead of helping educate the masses, Microsoft continues to prey on their ignorance.

    Soooo did Apple earn your respect when they had the same smear campaigns with their "I'm a Mac vs I'm a PC" ads?

    I would say it's the same thing but Apple actually went all out berating the competition, B+ list actors, prime time television, dozens of versions, etc.

    Apple can do no wrong!!! Lol

    LOL I love you guys. If Apple put out an ad mocking Samsung or Microsoft you'd be all "HAHA APPLE SHOWED THEM GOOD" but it's the reverse and y'all crying.

    Let me ask you something, were you guys calling foul during the whole "I'm a Mac/PC" ad campaign? If not, then hypocrisy reigns.

    LOL...I think it's pretty funny. From the rotten Apple, to targeting the 4S!

    I used to think that too, but then I got a chance to play around with one. Damn the camera on the Lumia 1020 is amazing. While the high number of megapixels makes it so you can zoom quite a bit without losing much quality, it is really more about the low light performance. I tested it in rooms with barely any light and outdoors at night. Pictures came out much better than the iPhone (that isn't to say the iPhone has bad low light performance, it just isn't as good comparatively). And the fact Nokia was able to stuff all that into a smartphone is impressive. If the iPhone had the camera module from the 1020 then I would be a very happy bear.
