Nokia Lumia 820 gets stepped on in this advertisement
It is believed that Nokia phones don't break easily. Even the Lumia 920 flagship smartphone is tougher than your ordinary modern handset, as those torture tests we've been writing about demonstrate. But what about its little brother – the Nokia Lumia 820?

Well, if this advertisement is to be trusted, the Lumia 820 is pretty much as durable as its high-end counterpart. It gets dropped and stepped on, seemingly without taking any damage. At the same time, another handset that the lady lab worker is testing – a handset that looks suspiciously similar to an iPhone, cracks at the slightest touch.

Of course, that's all made up, but the advertisement itself is pretty neat, so check it out and tell us what you think about all that. Could a Nokia Lumia 820 really be more durable than an iPhone?

I think both are durable, but with the Lumia you'll see the damage a lot less because the poly-carbonate will flex more and the aluminum will make dings glaringly obvious. IMO

Many things are more durable than the iPhone, even things that are known to be fragile; heck, some break just being looked at wrong. I can't think of a Nokia that wouldn't be more durable.

No doubt, that. But i would really love to see Nokia bring something about 7-9 mm slim phone without compromising the on build, not that i don't like what they are making.

Well they have had a few slim ones. My 5310 is TINY. But a thinner smartphone wouldn't be bad. That said, it can be nice having some thickness, if only for comfort. You thin and it digs into the hand

Oh, i remember that phone. Xpressmusic to be precise. Yeah, that's slim but that has got keypads on it...and not a touchscreened device. Wanted to have that one before but i went for the 5530...which i'm using now as well. Boy, 5310 was a slim phone for that time...it still should be.

I dropped my Nokia 808 PureView 4' onto a hard floor at work a couple of days ago, picked it up and kept things moving without a thought that any damage could have occurred...kind of similar to the actress in the video.

I wish Nokia came out with a 4.3 inch diagonal high def screen 820 sister phone because then nokia would have 2 smart phones with a high def screen intstead of 1 the the nokia lumia 920

I dropped my Nokia Lumia 820 whilst on the underground the other day. Screen is cracked and I can no longer use the phone. So from my experience that advert is a lie
