OnePlus leveled up this time to accommodate one more phone that could take it to ultra-premium flagship category. This is the OnePlus 7 Pro that got launched as well and it includes some interesting features over the standard model. OnePlus 7 which many would consider as the refreshed version of OnePlus 6T might not be the part of your interest now since the company has launched a Pro model as well that differs in design and in many other ways.
With 90Hz Quad HD+ AMOLED panel, HDR+ certification, pop-up selfie camera, the OnePlus 7 Pro differs so much and that’s how it amps up the competition and curiosity among the buyers. While there are many comparisons available between the OnePlus 7 and the OnePlus 7 Pro and many ways to weigh the performance of the two, not every comparison would tell you about its durability.
It’s equally important to know the worth of the device from a different angle and here comes the YouTuber JerryRigEverything who rips apart the newly-launched phones for you. OnePlus 7 Pro is no different and it had to undergo some brutal tests to prove its endurance power.
Going by the classic series of tests from the YouTuber first comes the scratch test in which the device started to show scratches at level 6 and deeper grooves at level 7 just like most flagships with Gorilla Glass protection. He also scratched the motorized selfie-camera module and found out while the edge of the module is made of metal like the edge of the entire phone, the front of it is made of plastic, which, of course, gets easily scratched. But the sensor is covered with glass which protects it from scratches when it goes in and out the phone. Also, the fingerprint scanner was working fine even after getting the scratches from pick 7 at the Mohs scale of hardness.
It passed the burn test with flying colors as well. He kept the lighter ON on the display for over 50 seconds and with no burn marks. According to his observations, normally, the phones show burn marks in 20 seconds.
It also passed the bend test successfully with no signs of shattering from the front or back.
