I have used several Nokia phones in the past few years and one of the things that I love about them is they are rough and tough phones which do not break as easily as other devices.
I have practically dropped my Nokia N95 hundreds of times including on concrete. Thankfully, I just had to put the battery back in and things worked as usual.
What is more worth it is the new Gorilla Glass display which is part of the new Nokia devices. The display is dubbed such because it is tough and almost unbreakable. The Folks at Nokia and WOM World wanted to prove how tough this glass was, and tested it out by running the Nokia Astound over by a 4 Ton bus at the CTIA 2011.
So do you think that the phone will break into pieces? Well, you are wrong. The Nokia Astound survived the bus and worked as if nothing ever happened. Check out a video of the Nokia Astound surviving a 4 Ton bus and making it out without problems after the break.
So what do you think? Could you make phones tougher than this?
