Video: Nokia 8 durability test by @ZacksJerryRig

Zack from JarryRigEverything, that is famous for testing the durability and analysing the construction of various gadgets, mostly phones, did a standard durability test of HMD’s flagship, the Nokia 8. Check the video down below.

As expected, Nokia 8 survived the test. A good thing I noticed is that the LED flash on the back is covered under the protective glass, unlike the LED on Nokia 3 and 6. Also, as Zack points out, HMD made a clever decision to wrap the plastic for antenna around the corners of the device, so in case of a fall, plastic will be less damaged compared aluminum.

Apart from Nokia 8, Zack also tested Nokia 6, 3 and 3310. He also did a disassembly video of Nokia 6, that can be checked here.

Tell us your thoughts about the video and Nokia 8 down below. 🙂

    As expected, it’s a tough device. His videos make my eyes water, but I’m glad he does these tests. The Nokia 8 came through with flying colours in my opinion. Very well constructed phone!

    • Hopefully the Nokia logo on the back won’t fell off under normal usage. It shouldn’t. Also, the fabric in the earpiece made my nervous (because he pulled it out on Nokia 6 easily), but the fact that it cannot be pulled out on the 8 is great. 🙂

    You said “A good thing I noticed is that the LED flash on the back is covered under the protective glass, unlike the LED on Nokia 3, 5 and 6”

    BUT NOKIA 5 HAS LED FLASH COVERED UNDER PROTECTIVE GLASS OR IS IT NOT ?

    • You’re right. It has. The article was updated. Thanks. 🙂
