How Nokia tests for durability

I’ve always appreciated how durable those plasticky Nokia phones are. I appreciated that even more when I broke my iPhone while playing iBaseball 🙂

Nokia Test Labs

Now after watching the Nokia Labs tour video by AAS guys, I’ve become even more of a fan of the build quality of Nokia’s phones.

A few facts to get you interested:

  • On an average they break 2000 pieces to test each model.
  • 2000 different mechanical tests.
  • Temperature range from -40° C to 85° C.
  • Super slow motion cameras for drop tests. 100,000 frames/second!
  • All keys/buttons/sliders are tested almost a million times.

You can see many more pictures from the labs at Gizmodo. Make sure you watch their brilliant slow-motion drop test video too.
