Nokia N8 Drop Test

Nokia N8 gets a nasty torture, but takes it like a man.

A unibody anodized aluminum chassis and a reinforced glass over the panel make the Nokia N8 certainly look like one of the sturdiest smartphones around. And the Finnish company is keen to show just how resistant to the elements it really is.



The Nokia smartphone also had other tests, those include exposure to extreme temperatures (from around -40°C to +85°C) and humidity over 95%. The N8 was also tested in some real life scenarios like simulation of carrying the phone in your pockets plus a buttons durability check, where buttons are tested to last over 1 million clicks.

Still neither Nokia nor we would suggest you try any of these at home, unless you want your warranty voided.

Best looking Nokia I've ever seen. Although, they really need to do more on these things. You get drenched in rain and the thing doesn't work anymore.

Haha I would call that the washing machine test. Good thing they care about product stability and quality.

Sounds like a good phone for a clutz.
