Nokia posts a video of phones going through hell
It's not easy being a Nokia phone these days. You're put through numerous tests and you are pushed to such an extent that at the end of the day your microSD slot hurts. As a matter of fact, you are pushed all the way to the limit... and then all the way back to the start. You're put in a chamber where you tumble over and over all day long, just to make your owner proud. As if that is not enough, you are then dropped from a huge distance on your face and when picked up, you are expected to work like new. We're telling you, it's not easy being a Nokia phone. We're wondering when the guys from the Nokia Lab Test will get themselves a tank, so that they can roll through their phones, just to be prepared, in case a tank runs over your very own phone. Just like in the real world. Poor little Nokia 105, it even gets an oven test, and if it's not baked, it goes in the dust chamber, where it's choked to see whether it will die from the dust or get back on track after the tests.

Wow, what a coincidence! I dropped my phone today. Though it was below waist height, it slipped away with considerable force due to the nature of the motion of my hands. I thoght oh hell! I thought the glass probaby cracked. Then i reassured myself that it was a Nokia, but still in doubt. My reassurance was correct! everything was intact, But there was a small concave bump which was stuck in. Its probably a small job at the Nokia care, but was amazed the phone didn't get anything else, considering the force with which it went down. Oh and the phone had no case/protection.

Lucky you. I once dropped accidently my SGS1 from ca 1,5 m on a really hard surface head on with the display, nothing happened. I know that Nokia has really good quality products, but I think that HTC is better.

Anything after Galaxy S2 is a joke from Samsung

HTC is better than Samsung in build quality of course but they are not as good as Nokia. Indestructible since 1865.

gs2 is a very reliable phone, so obviously you mistreated it, or just made that up. My friend has a 2 year old s2, and it is in perfect working condition. Also, HTC are terrible. Every HTC I know has a problem. Mine and my brother's had broken usb ports

hmmmm.....where's "Samsung" word in his comment ?? and if nokia only uses the sensor of the 808 PV on the EOS ,its pretty much far from disappointment and all reports say that the EOS more than just a windows phone 808 PV

dude, sure we wont get disappointed, EOS is a combination of PV1 and PV2 and some more extra features

He didn't said anything to Samsung. Plastic is used by Nokia, LG, Moto, Sony too. I think plastic is another name of Sammy..

you STFU!!!!! did I mention anything like SAMDUNG??????? I just mentioned cheap plastic, if cheap plastic means samdung to you, I cant help it. This proved that cheap plastic means Samdung!!!! And sure me and all other nokia fans wont get dissappointed!!!

like i said stfu. Are you dissapointed because of crappy zoom? Why are you raising up thursday event? EOS will be unveiled and everybody who´s waiting for it knows what to expect and they won´t be dissapointed. You´re Nokia hater so it´s obvious. Nokia and android will never happen so go back to your sammy´s articles. Nobody wants you here douchebag

you´ve just prooved that you´re a sammy lover and amazingly insecure person. Someone said cheap plastic and you, like a circus dog, jumped out and yelled about samsung. Keep whining. That´s a perfect example of what point of view you present. Whoyton=ultra samsung fanboy

Who are you aiming on? If Samsung, then let me say that Samsung also uses polycarbonate, just like Nokia.
