You Must Go To Great Lengths To Destroy A Nokia Lumia 920
[ Technology]

Nokia makes some tough hardware. The company’s previous phones have proven to be all kinds of durable. Somebody even tried to hammer a nail into the screen, and it wouldn’t even crack. The next logical experiment is seeing how much abuse the Nokia Lumia 920 can take.

The folks at PhoneBuff decided to put the Nokia Lumia 920 through its paces. They started with a simple drop test – the very same test that has taken out numerous other devices.

The drop test didn’t take the Lumia 920 out of commission so the folks at PhoneHub took it to the next level. They attempted to scratch both sides of the device with some keys, and then took a hamer and a knife to the device.

After the Lumia 920 survived the previous two tests, they went all out to destroy the phone. First, they ran over the phone with a car and nothing happened. The phone finally stopped working after being hit with a board across a parking lot, but didn’t actually break until it was thrown against a concrete slab.

The point of this is that the Lumia 920 will survive normal everyday situations. It should take any drops or scratches like a champ. Just don’t throw the phone against a concrete wall.

    Not the best way to dismantle a phone, but, oh well! Suit yourself! lol… Jokes apart, I’m eagerly waiting to pick this one up in India in exchange for my 808 Pureview.

    Instead of breaking the phone for testing you would’ve given the 920 to me…

    I am going to have to disagree strongly with the headline. I bought my Lumia 920 the day it came out and its been under a month and I already have several scratches on the screen. They are very light except for one which I can easily feel with my fingernail. Extremely disappointing quality with this device. My iPhone 3GS that I still have after almost 3 years doesn’t have a single mark on the screen and I take very good care of my phones. I was a big Nokia fan but am sorry to say that they are junk now.

    Can I just say that this whole article is *NONSENSE* and the durability assessments they make here are *DEAD WRONG*. I bought my Lumia 920 the day it was released. Had that thing for less than a month before I dropped it on a bathroom tile floor. It fell from a height of maybe 4 feet… BOOM, the so-called “gorilla glass” is completely shattered. There goes $450 to replace this thing now without insurance.

    I don’t care what kind of inane BS they have in these videos. This phone is heavy and heavy things hit the ground with more impact. If this thing hits a hard surface squarely face down, you will have a broken phone on your hands.

    For the record, I’m not a MS hater. I’ve been a Windows Phone fan since my LG Quantum. This was my third WP handset, but the first one I ever broke. Both the Quantum and my HD7 held up from being dropped on concrete 100′s of times. Still love the OS. But this piece of crap couldn’t survive a fricking bathroom floor??? Pardon the pun — but give me a break, Nokia!
