Remember that post about Samsung tried to NDA the guy cos his S4 caught fire? There have been far too many bad practices from Samsung (paying people to spread bad information about competitors in forums/comments, leaving bloggers behind in foreign countries after inviting them there when they refuse to be non-bias Samsung PR, doctoring benchmark results, supposedly telling NokiaUS to F themselves on twitter (though they claim that was fake) and generally their initial practice in cloning the iPhone to be seen as relevant before they became independently popular).

Nokia has, as with the blogger issue, stepped in to help. Great PR move. Reddit’s certainly loving them for it.

Nokia also helped out Casey Neistat when Apple stole his video and removed his name for their internal promotions.

Nokia’s PR and social media people get it. Samsung should have seen the moment that guy put up his initial video.

It’s nice to see these good feeling actions by Nokia crop up in the comments.

And also nice to see the good old Nokia meme

And lots of general good feeling about using a Nokia, whether it’s the 1020 and it’s amazing camera or the 1520 and that big display. 🙂

It makes me happy to see all of this great reactions to Nokia, but sad in a way because of where that “Nokia” name with regards to phones is headed.
