I'm looking to buy a good, solid Windows Phone for my vacation to France this year. Now we all know Nokia is acknowledged for the solid phones they make, which should make the choice easy.
Nevertheless, my question is: Nokia or not, what Windows Phone can fall without breaking (too easily)?
If you're buying new, go with the Nokia. If you don't mind an older model go with an LG Quantum or a Dell Venue Pro. They're both hefty, solidly built phones and the Dell adds Gorilla Glass to that nice AMOLED display.
If any phone hits a corner just right, its going to fail. A device is only as good as its weakest link. In this case, its the edges of the Gorilla glass, which is has a higher likelihood of breaking. So, the moral is just hold on to your phone.
Focus S or Lumia 800. The Lumia 800 is tougher than the Focus S it just depends on if you need the bigger screen. For a bigger screen device the Focus F can take a beating. Just don't drop it on a corner
I'm vouching for my Titan. Dropped 2m onto tiled floor numerous times and it has no scratches, only a tiny impact mark on the top left corner where it landed (almost negligible). It's a like it's wearing armour.
