We’ve all heard it before. Nokia phones are known by many to be some of the most durable devices in the market. If you’ve ever owned one, I’m sure you’d agree.

In a newly released video, the company attempts to explain the “Nokia promise of quality and reliability.” I’d say they explained it pretty well. As early as the design process, the phones are put through some intense quality and reliability tests.

They’re knocked around in a tumbler for hours, dropped on steel floors hundreds of times, bombarded with rainstorm-like amounts of water and even stewed for over a week in a hot and humid chamber. If the phone doesn’t make it through Nokia’s testing lab, then it’s back to the drawing board.

So if anyone ever asks why Nokia phones are so durable, now we can answer them. They have a pretty intense testing lab over there.

    I’ve dropped a Nokia 6210 many years ago in a puddle of water, completely submerged.

    I remembered not to turn it back on, opened the casing, removed the battery and simcard, and just left it alone for a day, then put the battery back, and would you know, it just turned on as if nothing happened to it.

    I’ve lost count of the numerous occasions my phone went flying across the room (by accident) or just being dropped from a dizzy height, each time fearing this “has to be it”, but nope, it’s still going.

    I just got a Samsung Galaxy, and the only annoying thing about it, is exactly that : I need to treat this thing with kid gloves (even my existing Nokia E5 which I’ve had for years has taken enormous abuse, and never let me down).

    I think subconsciously a Nokia owner knows the phone can take it, and are less inclined to treat it as careful as say a Samsung or Apple phone.

    And I think they should have stuck with the symbian system, it’s not the best, but it made for great continuity, upgrading from one Nokia to the other implied no learning curve, everything just worked.

    I had a 3210 back around 2000 or so, and it took some real abuse and never missed a beat. I never got it wet, but it got banged around a lot outside.

    Nice ad. Too bad their flagship phone has to run Windows 8….
