OnePlus 12 launched globally alongside the OnePlus 12R last month and is already on sale in various markets. There are some notable improvements like the periscope camera, wireless charging, aqua touch technology (which makes it usable with wet hands) and more. Now, Zack of JerryRigEverything has put the phone through a durability test to see how it holds up.

  • The video starts by spraying two splashes of water on the screen and is being compared with the iPhone 15 Pro and Galaxy S24 Ultra.
  • Post which, he starts to type sentences using every letter of the alphabet using Swipe Text and normal predictive suggestions.
  • The Aqua Touch technology on the OnePlus 12 did a good job, and so did the Galaxy S24 Ultra.

  •  The iPhone 15 Pro completely failed the wet touch test as Zack was unable to write a word with the swipe gesture. This says the iPhone is unusable in wet conditions.
  • Zack then proceeds to the scratch test where he begins scratching the Gorilla Glass Victus 2 display on the OnePlus 12.
  • As you would expect, the phone gets scratched at level 6 and there are deeper grooves at level 7.
  • The optical fingerprint scanner also works as expected even after the panel abuse.
  • The camera sensors are also coated with thick glass so you need not worry about the lens catching dirt. 

Lastly, Zack tried to bend the OnePlus 12 from the back side and a slight flex was noticeable. On the front side, the device bends near the camera module and antennas. The OnePlus 12 survives the bend test without any major damage.
