As we’ve seen in the past Nokia handsets are put thorough a rather vigorous reliability test in order to guarantee the reliability of that device before they go on sale.

Nokia put every new handset through almost 200 endurance tests to ensure they’ll survive in the real world. Check out the video after the break and find out just what Nokia do in these tests.
We’ve discovered the process behind the design of the Nokia N8, now lets take a look at the thought process in designing the Nokia C7.
