    Just saw the drop test using a white lumia 920 on YouTube.

    Spoiler : survived like a tank!

    Bout time. Don't blame that baby. He knows what a precious little piece of white magic he is holding.

    I dropped mine (on accident today) and it marked the corner and scratched the glass. totally sucked. I bought it yesterday and now I'm stuck with it for the next two years.

    Dang, took long enough! I've been searching everywhere for a lumia 920 drop test. I hope more pop up though so we can get some comparisons.

    What? Where did you buy it? You should be able to return it and exchange it.

    *EDIT* Possibly not due to the physical blemishes.

    I know that the drop test was performed for the public good...but, I still winced when the Lumia hit the pavement.

    That's basically what my 900 looks like after several drops.

    I thought the whole shell is made of the same colored polycarbonate just like other Lumia phones? I am pretty sure that was one of the features on the 800.

    I think the dark color is the scuff from the ground.

    The only thing missing from that drop test is a straight-down drop onto the glass.

    These drop tests mean absolutely nothing to me. One time I knelt down to tie my shoe and had my brand new iPhone 4 in my shirt pocket. My pocket couldn't have been more than 20 inches from the ground when it fell out of my pocket and bam, the screen shattered . I received a replacement and like 7 months later I was standing on top of an elevator (I'm a elevator mechanic ) and I droppe my phone off the top f the elevator from the 3rd floor. That was about 45 feet to the floor. Te glass survived and te only thing that broke was the vole buttons and serious visual damage to the antenna band around the phone.

    That baby holds onto smartphones better then some adults I know...

    I am glad these guys always do these drop tests because that's my biggest concern always, even though I never drop my phone.

    Even though an adult could replicate the mid-range drop, I am glad he did it with a baby because my daughter is grown up fast and she has begun grabbing Daddy's electronics :lol:

    The baby held the phone for who knows how long with ease yet the reviewers at the verge find it heavy.

    Yeah, ok.

    If anything it makes the phone feel like quality, not to meantion tough which we all know about Nokia.

    Isn't the Gorilla Glass supposed to be scratch-proof?

    Yeh really! I held it for the first time the other day, soooo much lighter than I thought it'd be! Its lighter than something that size looks like it should be! It feels a little lighter than my trophy with the extended battery.

    Actually I believe all glass is technically scratch proof. Just not impact proof.
