Nokia N8 Drop Test (Video)

As we’ve seen in the past Nokia handsets are put thorough a rather vigorous reliability test in order to guarantee the reliability of that device before they go on sale. This was no different for the Nokia N8, which was put through its paces in a drop test at the Nokia Testing Centre in Beijing. Nokia put every new handset through almost 200 endurance tests to ensure they’ll survive in the real world. Check out the video after the break and find out just what Nokia do in these tests.

Some key tests include:

  • Extreme Weather: Devices are exposed to extreme temperatures from around -40°C to 85°C.
  • Humidity: The device is put in a special chamber for several weeks, where it experiences humidity levels as high as 95%.
  • Clothing: Special machines bend and twist the device, and one uses a real pair of jeans to test friction and wear and tear.
  • Pockets: Devices are placed in a special “shaker” machine with hard particles to see how resistant they are.
  • Buttons: The keys are pressed up to one million times in the lab.
