Smartphone makers, it's fine if your mid-range smartphone's selfie camera does not take the best selfies in the world. You get plenty of time to improve it, and faking the quality of the shot in ads will not get you anywhere.
But Huawei thought it would be great to do just that. The company was caught faking smartphones selfies in a commercial. Instead of the Nova 3 smartphone front camera, the company allowed advertisers to use a DSLR camera, the back-scenes showed the pictures.
Let's see the ad:
It seems that the guy takes self-help from him and his significant other knows using the Huawei Nova 3i, right?
Let's check out one of the self-confidence, which by the way looks better than the rest of the video. It's almost as if it had been affected after finishing:
Now a photo is posted on Instagram by the actor in the image above , which clearly shows that the actor is faking the shot:
It was all discovered by a Redditor who was fast enough to to capture the Instagram image. The actor removed it, but the Internet never forgets.
Huawei never says Nova 3i can take pictures that look so good. But the implication here is that the selfies mentioned in the commercials were taken with the current phone.
After all, Apple used its iPhone to shoot entire commercials and contained the power of the iPhone camera in many advertisements. So savvy smartphone users would definitely assume that the self-help in this ad was taken with the phone's camera.
It's even more annoying that we do not look at Huawei's first such event. The company photographed the bones out of the P8 phones before, and used a DSLR to fake camera samples of P9, like Android Police reminding us.
The faster Huawei ditches these annoying marketing jobs that often backfire, the better. The misleading ad has over 2 million hits on YouTube.
