Warning: The Nokia Lumia 920 is not indestructible, because concrete breaks glass

As impressive as Nokia’s build quality has been for its premium tier of Lumia devices, around launch there’s always a sobering reminder that nothing is indestructible.

Reddit user zxpouvias is quite the unlucky new owner of a Nokia Lumia 920. Apparently he dropped the device screen-first on to concrete. When he flipped it over, the screen had been cracked as seen above. Luckily for zxpouvias he has insurance on the phone, but he’s going to have to swallow a $125 co-pay for a replacement.

Take this as a warning folks: as hyped up as Nokia’s build quality is, any surface at the right angle can break any kind of glass. (At the very least consider getting insurance on the phone.)
