    Maybe I'm just lucky (or unlucky), but I can't seem to find any Nokia Lumia 920 drop tests that are legit.

    When I search for, "lumia 920 drop test" on youtube I pull up videos that have extremely misleading/wrong titles and not any actual drop test videos. Note that the following 3 videos are in the top 7 search results. The other videos in the top 7 are not drop tests or for the wrong phone.

    Title:Nokia Lumia 920 and Samsung Galaxy S III Drop Test
    Actual: It's an iPhone 5 review


    Title: Samsung Galaxy S3 vs Nokia Lumia 920 Drop Test
    Actual: Some random video of nothing


    Title: Nokia Lumia 920 Drop Test and Durability
    Actual: Someone tapping forks and spoons on the lumia 920 and another phone



    I'm kind of wondering, either this phone is made so strong that biased reviewers are afraid to show off the durability of the lumia 920 or I am just really unlucky and suck at searching for videos.


    Are there any legit Nokia Lumia 920 drop test videos?

    I haven't seen any. Personally I'm waiting for the Lumia 920 In a Blender video.

    With all the reviewers complaining about the lumia 920 being heavier than the death star I figured they'd have a lot of footage of the phone being dropped on accident. :P

    In all seriousness, I really do want to see some drop tests. Mostly for my Wife's benefit, being pregnant she has dropped her WP7 phone twice and broke two glasses (she's got a good case of pregnancy brain right now). :)

    Why did you buy your wife a 920 if she's pregnant? It's far too heavy for her to lift safely :)

    There were several earthquakes in central america today. I suppose the cameras filming the drop test exploded and the people talking about it died.

    Proof:

    48 dead after earthquake rocks Guatemala - CNN.com

    At least 48 dead after 7.4-magnitude quake off Mexico-Guatemala border – This Just In - CNN.com Blogs

    So....

    Can't think of a better explanation.

    Wow, I don't know what else to say except too soon? Pretty sure that's textbook crossing the line.

    The testers havent been able to secure a controlled environmental location for the drop.
    I mean you'd need some bomb squad personnel, police escort and EMT's on standby in order to perform such a thing.

    The only thing i can think of is giving the Mythbusters the task of doing a drop test. They have access to all sorts of explosives testing facilities.

    I've been wondering about this too. When the L900 came out there were videos of Nokia employees using it to hammer nails, etc. I haven't seen anything like that this time around.
