Nokia Lumia 800 survives multiple drops and screen damage test

We previously covered the accidental dropping of a Nokia Lumia 800 by a one year-old, yes a one year-old. Now we can take a look at multiple drops to test the strength of not only the shell of the device, but the Corning Gorilla Glass too (see previous screen scratch resistant test). Scratching and scraping is also carried out on the toughened screen, but leave no visible marks.

Please note WPCentral does not recommend that you have your Lumia 800 dropped numerous times, by numerous people.

  • Didn't really look like she was all that sincere during the key scratch test. Plus that chick is just super annoying. She sounds like a stereotype character from a Saturday Night Live skit. =P
  • magenta is such an eye catcher.  black phones are getting too overused.
  • Who cares about the color of a phone? Throw a case on it if u don't like it
  • I care. I prefer my phones as nature intended.
  • Tough little phone.
  • I'd love to see that drop test on an iPhone. I used to have an iPod but it didn't survive a 2 feet fall when my sister dropped it...
  • Well, it sure isn't an iPhone (and by that I mean it doesn't break everytime when dropped).
  • Put it through me, I will break it :) - punching, throwing full force into walls, attempting to snap it in two. I can break it ;)
