JerryRigEverything recommends any Nokia smartphone for durability

Zack from JerryRigEverything channel on YouTube regularly destroys and dismantles phones, for the sake of seeing how good or bad the phones are built, and how repairable they are. In 2017, his channel was full of videos of different devices being “stress tested” and dismantled, so he decided to give awards for the most durable and most repairable phones, while commenting interesting devices from the past year.

We already saw in his videos that HMD’s Nokia devices are well made and they all passed Zack’s tests. The devices in question are Nokia 2, Nokia 3, Nokia 5, Nokia 6 and Nokia 8 – ranging from low end, €100 phones to high end, €600 phones.

In his award video, he crowned the Nokia 6 (1st generation) as the most durable phone of 2017. He added that he never tested such a sturdy made smartphone. Later, commenting on budget phones, he said that any device from the Nokia Android lineup of smartphones, will be a great performer in terms of durability. Check the award ceremony video down below.


HMD’s CPO Juho Sarvikas was satisfied with the awards and comments Zack made in the video, promising a fun 2018.


This comes as a real token to HMD for the design and build quality of their Nokia phones. Hopefully, the Nokia legacy of well-made phones will continue in the years to come.

    Nice, the site is back pretty quick!

    I feel so happy for Nokia and HMD. This is just a YouTuber’s award, but Zack knows what he’s doing, and to give a Nokia product the Most Durable award speaks volumes. All the hard work is paying off. Nokia’s market share will certainly grow in 2018.

    Big congrats to Juho and the team. Well done guys!

    • And after Nokia 6 2018 I am definitely sure they will rule the mid range. 🙂 2018 is going to be very exciting year for everyone. 🙂

      Hard work will pay off when they launch right devices at right time. They are launching nokia 7 in india this month with small display big bezels and high price. The nokia 6 is looking better value for money. Did you get your hands on nokia 7??any thoughts on camera??

      • The camera is a mid ranger. I won’t call it spectacular. It all depends on the price at which they will sell it.
        I heard that the Nokia 7 in China was retailing even cheaper than the Nokia 6 (1st Gen) during the recent sale.
