Lumia 920 meets Dennis the Menace in Nokia's 5 Year Old Challenge
Ever wondered what children get up to with mobile phones with no parental supervision? Nokia decided to do a short film on how it is when taken to extreme levels. We're shown, who we can only assume is a 5 year old, mess around with a Lumia 920 by taking photos of his mother while asleep and setting it as the wallpaper on the lock screen.
As well as this, he decided to take it for a ride - the phone, that is. Resting it on the rear of a toy vehicle, he decided to smash the Windows Phone with a bat while the device recorded it's own torture. We're not finished though as the child then attached it to the front wheel of his bicycle and pushed the bike away for the handset to hit the ground a handful of times.
While it's obviously taken too far for marketing purposes as well as dramatic effects, it's amusing to see what can happen when a young person gets hold of technology. We'd like to see what the Lumia 920 looked like after the endured torture, but alas Nokia failed to satisfy our needs in the video. We can only assume there are multiple holes in the driveway, the bicycle is deformed, the toy vehicle and bat are somewhere miles away, and the Lumia 920 doesn't even have a scratch.
The device can surely take a beating and is shown in numerous tests that have taken place since the Windows Phone was released. It can't stand up to fire from an AK-47 rifle, though which managed to force its rounds through the smartphone.The company is taking ideas on what to do next, though. By joining in the discussion on Twitter (using the #Switch hashtag), consumers are able to recommend what challenges can be thrown at Nokia hardware next.
