Watch: OnePlus 10T follows OnePlus 10 Pro’s footsteps in bend test, snaps into half [Update]

New OnePlus smartphone with an old problem.

Highlights
  • OnePlus 10T undergoes scratch, burn, and bend tests. 
  • The AMOLED panel of the OnePlus 10T shows a slew of pixels that turns white after 20 seconds of heat. 
  • OnePlus 10T cracks from the same sport we previously saw on the OnePlus 10 Pro. 

Update: OnePlus in a statement to 91mobiles said that its latest OnePlus 10T 5G smartphone can bear over 45kg of external force. This is in response to a YouTube video where the handset was snapped in half. OnePlus claims that when designing, engineering, and manufacturing OnePlus devices, we ensure they not only offer a design that is beautiful and burdenless but is also durable so they can withstand everyday usage.

“The OnePlus 10T 5G meets or exceeds all of OnePlus’ extensive durability testing procedures, this includes a pressure test where the device is suspended while weight is applied to its centre on both its front and back. The OnePlus 10T 5G has an enhanced structure engineering design and can bear over 45kg of external force in this test at OnePlus’ lab,” the company further added.

Original story follows…

The OnePlus 10T receives the same treatment that the OnePlus 10 Pro got a few months ago, a bent test. This newer OnePlus phone is not officially a successor of the OnePlus 10 Pro, as OnePlus has a weird naming scheme for this year’s OnePlus phones. However, the OnePlus 10T (review)does come with upgraded specs, and perhaps it’s redesigned to resist the bent test that the OnePlus 10 Pro couldn’t.

In 6 minutes and 39 seconds video, the YouTuber channel JerryRigEverything’s Zack does the traditional recipe of scratch, burn, and bend test on the OnePlus 10T to check its durability. Spoiler alert: It cracks.

OnePlus 10T bend test

OnePlus 10T scratch test

For starters, the OnePlus 10T, like every other smartphone, holds strong against the scratch test. The AMOLED panel of the OnePlus 10T has a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection on top, which survives a level 6 scratch test on the Mohs hardness scale. Further, the Youtuber also scratches all four sides of the OnePlus 10T’s plastic (with some metal components here and there) body, pealing out its shell.

OnePlus 10T heat test

Moving to the main course, the OnePlus 10T is on fire, literally, and it lasts around 20 seconds before a slew of pixels turns white and never fully recovers back to normal. The Youtuber spares the OnePlus 10T’s fingerprint reader from the traditional burn test.

Now it’s time for the dessert, the bend test. When the Youtuber bends the OnePlus 10T from the front, it stays strong and shows no signs of cracking. However, when the same is executed on the rear panel of the OnePlus 10T, and we witness the same tragedy previously seen on the 10 Pro, it snaps into half from the very spot as the OnePlus 10 Pro, right under the camera island.
