We drop tested both the new and old Nokia 3310 – and there was a clear winner

The Nokia 3310 has legendary status for its durability, so we drop tested the new version and the old version to see which one could take more damage.

The new Nokia 3310 survived the first-storey drop with minor scratches, but when we dropped it from a fourth-storey window the screen cracked and it was unusable.

The old Nokia 3310 survived the fourth-storey window drop with just a few lines across the screen. 

Watch the video to see how we destroyed both phones.
