OnePlus 5T undergoes scratch, burn and bend tests

21 November 2017 2

Last week, OnePlus launched the OnePlus 5T, a smartphone with a couple better features than the company’s this year flagship, the OnePlus 5. The new smartphone was appreciated by the tech community over the globe, as the flagship device offered amazing features in a great price bracket. YouTuber JerryRigEverything recently received a unit from the company and he tested the device for durability, scratches and bends in a new video.

First up is the scratch test. The OnePlus 5T with a 2.5D Gorilla Glass scratches at level 6 on the Mohs scale with deep scratches reporting on level 7. The selfie camera is built underneath the glass, so it doesn’t get scratched easily as well. The dual rear camera on the back is also scratch-resistant against keys and basic things that would scratch it in pockets. The ceramic fingerprint scanner also remains unscathed against basic scratches. The OnePlus 5T has a metal finish with metal volume buttons, metal SIM tray end, and the metal profile switch button.

Next up is the burn test. The display of the screen is subjected to a flame from a lighter and we can see that it resisted the burn for about 20 seconds before it left a white mark on the screen. As for the final bend test, the phone is a total brick. Although there is a slight flex, there is no cracking sound anywhere and the phone remains intact.
