“Mysterious” Uhans phone claims to be tougher than Nokia 3310


UHANS’ newly launched A101 shows its toughness in a drop test against the legendary unbreakable Nokia 3310. Will the legend live on? Let’s check out the video.

In a video with some really investigative background music, the guys over at UHANS drop the Nokia 3310 and the UHANS A101 from the insane height of 50 feet (around 15 meters), something that doesn’t happen that often, but just in case..

Gizchina News of the week

The result is pretty surprising, the Nokia 3310 gets disassembled cause of the fall (we were used to that back then), but then when put back together it doesn’t actually boot up! In the meanwhile, the UHANS A101 appears in worse conditions with a totally destroyed display but manages to boot up fine and the touchscreen is still working, a real unexpected turn.

UHANS has been pushing the slogan “A Tribute to Nokia” for a while now and people were wondering what that meant. The video seems to be their answer to all those questions and it’s not a bad one.

The smartphone can already be found on flash sale for $49 here.

What are your thoughts, guys? If it survived a 50 feet drop then it should survive any realistic scenario, don’t you think? Let us know in the comments below.

    Enough with this stupid marketing. What Nokia has to do with this cheap Chinese crap?

    Horse shit!
    How about dropping them from 10 fits on concrete? In the worst case you would have to buy new plastic cover for Nokia & display on Uhans would brick anyway.
    But now when they did fuck up A101 with the camera & lack of RAM being a cheap basterd’s & all I do understand them and that they only can trow them around because no one normal won’t buy it.

      I get it has low specs and all, but it also costs just $49. Nothing is for free, sadly!

        Last time I checked hire it whose 70$ & that whose action price.
        Thing is I really liked the design & all of this one until you popped full spec hire. They didn’t had to destroy it like that for couple of bucks (an old Chinese product problem). The part of comparation with a display in my earlier comment is tied to any newer large screen phone no matter who made it, to be fair.

          I get what you’re saying. I can also confirm the price is $49 right now.

    First we do not know this Nokia worked before they dropped it and there is not any sense to compare Nokia with Uhans. Nokia is Nokia…beating every other phone…This video is so bad marketing and hoax.

    There are too many variables that could’ve been manipulated by Uhans. Like another guy said, the Nokia could’ve been broken the whole time. Another thing is that if the screen is destroyed non the Uhans, it doesn’t really matter if it boots because the phone is useless anyway.

    Nokia was excellent phone in due time. Why to throw phones? To me all the same shock-proof it or not. If in it good characteristics and the smartphone there are $50.

    I saw a similar roller at Umi. Creators of Umi and Uhans send me for this test your phones. I will upload real video.
