Anyone who has ever owned an old-school Nokia phone, such as the "high-end" 6310
, the consumer-oriented 5110, or the legendary for its durability 3310
, knows that those handsets were pretty tough to break. We also bet that more than a few of you still have an obsolete, yet still functional Nokia phone collecting dust inside some drawer. But now that the phones that we use are smarter than ever, is Nokia still building its handsets as tough as it once did?
That is the question CNET
