    I AM GETTING SICK OF CNET'S BIASED REVIEWS. They did a torture test on the 1020 so they soaked it in blueberries like you were making wine instead of water damage and stepped on it, and the to get the blueberries off they soaked it really well in water! WTF!!

    They did a bad water test of the 900 too. They took out the sim tray and he fell in a pool, and put it I'm a bag of rice for only 20 MINUTES! They put the iPhone and galaxies for more than 24 hours! iCnet...

    CNET trolled you.

    No one expects a phone to survive that treatment.

    I have no respect for CNET. They have a continual ad on ESPN that links to an article that reads "Blackberry 10 driving business away from competitors."

    no but these type of videos are watched by people who are first time smartphone buyers who aren't very techy so they might not know this is ridiculous

    Well,

    I understand the justifiable negativity to the report, so feel burdened to make one positive comment about it..

    The banjo music at the beginning was very appropos to the overal quality of this review..

    CNET's logic: IPhone in water for 30 seconds = pulverizing the 1020 in wine, then covering it with water.

    I say we march on CNET's main office in NY. WHO'S WITH ME?!?!

    I don't understand... how is this even a test... if you tried throwing the iphone like she did it would crack on the first bounce... also submerge any phone that isnt either the galaxy active or something treated with liquipel and the chances of it working are slim...

    OP: If these types of reviews fustrate you then why are you still visiting the site? There is nothing you can do to contol or stop it from happening. That goes for any of the bogus review sites out there. Best thing to do is simply get them out of your life. You will be a much happier person.

    I dunno. Cnet are well known for having bias towards iOS and Apple products and there are so many other sites out there that provide more balanced feedback and tests of devices.

    I think Cnet are just catering for themselves. I honestly don't think they'll be changing many people's minds on a WP purchase...if people want to buy a 1020, they'll research a little deeper than a company that may as well be called iCnet.

    Fack 'em..leave them to it.

    "Well, there's no visible damage, so let's try that again." And again. What? "No visible damage" is her result after she did her drop test. If she's gonna hurl it till there's damage, then, it should be dropped from high and higher with a result on the height that finally breaks it.

    "time for a torture test of the Nokia Lumia 1020" was as much of the video I care to watch. I saw this same tortured looking "half man / half wilder-beast" review the 1020 when it hit the street. She used taking pictures of bubbles from a bubble machine to demonstrate how the Nokia 1020 was lacking. Face it, we will never make the grade with everyone. Technology does what it does. But, if you want to take real shots of your family, events, vacation, etc. between the iphone that the wilder-beast likes and the 1020, its the 1020 all day long.
    Oh and dropping a smart phone on the ground to prove that glass breaks must be ground breaking news to CNET. Wait till they discover companies like OTTERBOX exist. They're heads is sure to explode. lol.

    I'm surprised, you could tell they were trying their darndest to ensure it didn't survive. It actually fared pretty well. The phone is obviously fine, and, as it was trying to tell her (but she ignored) it was merely a problem with the battery. The connector attaching it to the phone very well could've been knocked loose (or even corroded) from the various tests. If they had opened it up and taken a look, I'm 55% sure they could've simply reattached the battery's connector, and it would've worked fine.

    The 1020 did remarkable, kudos to Nokia. Try doing that with an iPhone, and see how things go.

    Side-note: I facepalmed when she couldn't find the power button... She's "reviewed" how many Nokia Lumias at this point?

    Actually, the 1020 survived being dropped multiple times on a gravel road, and you could tell they were really trying to ensure its death. Hell, water and grape-juice got knocked out when they dropped it, because they hadn't dried it out from the previous test yet. This is a tough little trouper, I want to see this same test done to an iPhone, I suspect their precious idol won't fare as well as the the mighty Nokia.

    I swear, Molly Wood probably wept like a baby and tore out her hair when Steve Jobs died. She probably has a shrine devoted to all things Apple in the closet of her house. Her obsession towards apple and hatred for anything non-apple borders on religious zealotry.
