Last year, both OnePlus 10 Pro and OnePlus T were successfully cracked and in progress Now the classicJerryRigEverything
snaps in half during the bend test. Very few devices fail that test and two devices in one year isn’t a good advertisement for the brand’s focus on durability, although the tests are far more extreme than most people are likely to accept with their phones on a day-to-day basis Medium (unless you like to keep it in your back pocket, don’t have a case, and have a tendency to forget it’s there and sit on it).
So with all of that in mind, you might be wondering how OnePlus’ latest smartphone fares in the same test. Luckily, Zach from JerryRigEverything finally got his hands on a OnePlus and he’s ready to put some tests to the test. So grab yourself some popcorn and hit the play button below to see what happens.
Well, the title of this post has been Spoilers for you, but just in case you need more spoilers, here you go. Everything started as usual with a scratch test, which only confirmed that there was glass on top of the screen, and nothing else. It scratches at a 6 on the Mohs scale and deeper grooves at a 7.
The frame is made of metal, as is the power button. It’s not always a given that the screen has been under direct flame for more than 50 seconds without permanent damage to the pixels. Unfortunately, the fingerprint scanner stops working when there is a level 7 scratch in place on the screen.
Finally, the test we’ve been waiting for. The glass on the back did crack, but the phone didn’t break and continued to function normally. This is a marked improvement over the 727 predecessors and if you use a good quality heavy duty case you will most likely prevent the rear glass from cracking no matter how much you expose it to .
