I actually find Nokia phones to be extremely reliable and sturdy. I've personally seen a friend accidently drop his Nokia 3xxx (I forget the model) face down from almost 6-7 feet on solid ground (on the pavement), and it continued to work without a problem. Even my current 3650, although light, feels very solid.
Some people have bad experiences with certain brands, while others don't. Freak accidents happen...and sometimes you don't know the reasons behind them.
Philips make sturdy phones, me and about 4 other friends had the same phone at one point (C12 I beleive), and the **** we put them through was amazing. My one friend was out skating and he threw, and I don't mean dropped, I mean threw with force, his phone down some concrete steps, and it was fine
LOL...what was he thinking?
But yeah, I wouldn't know since I've never used or known anyone with a Philips phone, and I definitely don't have the guts to hurl my 3650 down a flight of stairs to see what it can withstand.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
