Nokia Lumia 800 Gorilla Glass torture test [video]

Now they didn’t go as far as dropping it from dizzying heights or smashing it with a hammer, but did throw a couple real world items at it. In the video you can see that the user takes a corkscrew, coins, keys, and even a knife to the glass of Nokia’s new Windows Phone and the screen appears to handle these things well.
While this doesn’t insinuate that the device is indestructible, it is nice to see that it can handle items that tend to end up against your phone better than you might expect.

Such a great looking phone! The design and materials are perfect. Harmony! I can only wait anxiously for the Super Spec'd Lumia 900 (Ace)... This here is an R8, but the Ace is a R8 V12!

Why do they feel the need to do this when the N8's torture test has already proven that Gorila glass is frigging awesome? I've had an N8 for 15 months now and have treated it with little care. The aluminum body's chipped in some places though the paint dosn't run off. The glass off the camera and front screen however is perfectly 'new'. No scratches whatsoever.

The key and the coins part is a joke. I don't know why he even bothered with those after trying to scratch it with a cork opener first. If that didn't scratch it I highly doubt coins or slightly dropping keys on it will scratch the screen. But point proven.
