Last week we asked you to participate in a poll to tell us which of the latest Nokia Lumia ads you like the most. Was it Dad Wins, 127 seconds, or the video with the carrots? We’ve counted up the votes, so let’s find out.

But first, many of you left comments detailing your favourites.

Wolfram had this to say:

“Meet the Windows Phone Nokia Lumia 1020 is simply hilarious! Great fun to watch. The clip “Do carrots help …” is a close second and “Dad wins” is also a clever and funny way to promote a camera feature.”

Nigel particularly liked video showing the Super-Sensitive Touch feature:

“I like the 127 secs one. Because it shows the special feature of Lumia devices.”

Our own Ian Delaney pitched in with his favourite, too:

“For me, Dad wins. Though I hadn’t seen ‘The Darkness’ before now, and that was awesome.”

Now, for the results.

In first place, taking 52 per cent of the votes, is ‘Meet the Windows Phone Nokia Lumia 1020. 41 megapixels. Reinvented zoom. Nothing else comes close’.

There are probably a few reasons why this won your votes. Was it because of the cool, calmness of the Nokia Lumia owners? Was it because it showed that the Nokia Lumia 1020 is a better camera phone than the competitors offer? Or was it because it shows a lot of pushing and shoving? Whatever the reason, it’s worthy of first place.

Scoring 12 per cent, my personal favourite, is Nokia Lumia 925: Dad wins.

Being able to delete people from photos is a great Nokia Smart Camera feature. This video shows a father trying to remove his daughter’s boyfriend from a family photo – clever, and witty.

127 seconds received 11 per cent of your votes.

Imagine being trapped under a bookcase, wearing rubber gloves, and needing to make a phone call to the emergency services to get them to come and rescue you.

See the problem in this scenario? The rubber gloves! You won’t be able to make a phone call on your touchscreen phone with those on – but you can with a Nokia Lumia.

Maybe it was the prospect of someone having to hack off their own arm in order to be freed that made you all vote.

As for the rest of the results, you can check out the results below.
