Just another reason why it was the best phone ever.

The latest smartphones may be able to do just about anything, but there’s one thing they can’t do—open a bottle of beer. And truthfully we’re hoping that’s in the works for the iPhone 7.

In the meantime, Mitchell Desmet got to work on using a phone that is already known for being nearly destructible—the Nokia 3310. He used the ancient phone in place of a bottle opener and not surprisingly was able to pop the cap off on not one, but several bottles of beer with ease. Most importantly, he managed to open the beer without causing any damage to the phone.

One for me, one for you.

The lesson here is: If you ever find yourself without a bottle opener or a piece of paper, but for some reason have a Nokia 3310 handy, the phone is a perfect stand-in to crack open a cold one.
