Nokia Lumia 920 is someone's crush, literally

Nokia Lumia 920 is someone's crush, literally
For those who worry about the ability of their Nokia Lumia 920 to survive a fall, perhaps you should stop worrying about it and move on to other problems. After all, the Nokia Lumia 920 showed that it can take a licking and keep on ticking as a 24 ton Caterpillar truck rolled over a unit smashing the device beyond recognition. The 4.5 inch screen was smashed to smithereens.

The good news is that the phone still can make calls and still receives them, too. That's how the phone was found, by hearing it ringing though it was buried deep in the dirt. The owner of the phone, Ossi Pyykkönen, was so impressed by the ruggedness of the phone that he plans on buying a new one to replace the smashed model. 

Actually, the Nokia Lumia 920's toughness should be no surprise to our loyal readers who have seen the device get tortured before and work as though nothing had happened.

Naaaiice... PA, you got a new way to check the ruggedness of a phone. I have an idea, let's see how slim and light can the SIV get!

Strange, how somebody that claims to hate WP8 so much spends ALL of their time trying to infiltrate message threads that deal with WP8 related issues. Troll, I certainly hope that Sammy or Google are paying you for your time and efforts, or else you really are just a fool ;o)

The day you realise bricks don't have screens, volume rocker, camera button, sim slot, speaker, camera and oh, oh...it can make calls, SURPRISE!!

I would honestly rather have a "brick phone" with amazing build quality than a slim phone that with one drop could possibly break.
