In a fun from the forums thread, we have an interesting conversation about something even we’ve witnessed: the Nokia Lumia 920 slipping and sliding off of seemingly flat surfaces, often crashing to the ground.

Forum member Cheyenne Price started a thread and even posted a video on his Facebook documenting the phenomenon (video after the break). The video starts with this 920 placed faced down on his Dell laptop, firmly in the center and flat on a desk. Yet within moments you can see the 920 spin around and then slowly begin to creep towards the corner.

We've seen the Nokia Lumia 900 Windows Phone drive nails but how tough is this Windows Phone? Sure it has Gorilla Glass and a solid, polycarbonate unibody but can it stand up to freezing temps? Temperatures hot enough to bake cookies? How about falls from a moving car?  How about instead of driving nails Lumia 900, you tried to drive a nail into the Lumia?

CNET TV's Jeff Cannata took the Lumia 900 out on a torture test to see if anything could beat it. While it survived the falls, freezing temps and oven temps there was one test that did the Lumia 900 in. Even though the video ends in tragedy, it's nice to see how tough the Lumia 900 is.
