That was, however, in the distant past, when phones were less smart and less fragile.
With the return of the brand to the smartphone market, sans Microsoft, each model seems to be met with the same question: will it bend?
Of course, JerryRigEverything just had to put the new Nokia 8 to the test to see if it is indeed Nokia’s most powerful, both in specs and in form.
Nokia and HMD advertised that the Nokia 8 used 600 series aluminum.
That is the very same type of metal that Apple stopped using exactly because it was prone to bending on its iPhone 6 generation.
Except for smartphones that advertise shatter-proof screens or those that don’t use Gorilla Glass 5, the screen scratch test is almost always consistent.
