Welcome to the Nokia Test Centre

Your phone goes through a lot of abuse - even if you try your best to protect it. Nokia wants to make sure your phone can withstand the wear and tear of every day use, whether it's getting scratched up in your handbag, falling out of your pocket, or getting rained on.

Each phone goes through at least 200 mechanical tests - here are a few of them.
