c The clarification came a few days after YouTube channel JerryRigEverything posted a video discussing the phone’s durability. The video demonstrated how the OnePlus 10T split in half when pressure was applied to it, just like the OnePlus 10 Pro did. The OnePlus 10T passed the scratch test with flying colours and continued to function normally after a lighter had scorched the display.
The pressure test, which suspends the device while weight is applied to the middle of both its front and back, demonstrates that the OnePlus 10T satisfies or surpasses all of OnePlus’ exacting durability testing requirements. In a statement provided to Gadgets 360, OnePlus claimed that the OnePlus 10T has an improved structural engineering design and can withstand over 45kg of external force during this test at the company’s lab.
Zack Nelson, a YouTuber, put the OnePlus 10T through extensive durability tests on his JerryRigEverything channel. In the video, it was shown that the recently released smartphone survived the majority of tests in which it was subjected to fire and scratches. The phone worked without a hitch even with a burnt display and scratched glass protection.
However, just like the OnePlus 10 Pro, it failed to withstand the bend test and broke in half. After being bent in the middle, both phones sustained severe damage and broke just below the camera module. Nelson claimed in the video that the OnePlus 10T had a longer battery life than the OnePlus 10 Pro.
According to the OnePlus statement, “When designing, engineering, and manufacturing OnePlus devices, we ensure they not only offer a beautiful and unobtrusive design but are also durable so they can withstand daily usage.”
The bend test is one method of subjecting the phone to extreme circumstances, which may or may not occur with customers in real-life scenarios, it should be noted. However, it is safe to say that in cases where the phone is subjected to extreme conditions, it will suffer some catastrophic damage.
