OnePlus 10T meets or exceeds all of OnePlus’ extensive durability testing procedures and it can withstand daily use, the company said. The company’s statement comes days after a video on the phone’s durability by YouTube channel JerryRigEverything. The video showed the OnePlus 10T snapping in half – similar to the OnePlus 10 Pro – after pressure was applied to it. The OnePlus 10T performed well in the scratch test and performed well after its screen was fried by a lighter.
“The OnePlus 10T 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 center front and back. The OnePlus 10T has an improved structural engineering design and can withstand over 45kg of external force in this test at OnePlus’ lab, OnePlus said in a statement sent to Gadgets 360.
The OnePlus 10T has been subjected to rigorous durability testing by YouTuber Zack Nelson on his YouTube channel JerryRigEverything. The video showed that the recently launched smartphone survived most of the tests where the handset was exposed to scratches and fire. The phone worked perfectly even after scratched glass protection and burnt screen.
However, it did not survive the bend test and literally broke in half, just like the OnePlus 10 Pro. Both phones suffered catastrophic damage and broke just below the camera module when bent in the middle. The OnePlus 10T lasted longer than the OnePlus 10 Pro, Nelson said in the video.
“When designing, engineering and manufacturing OnePlus devices, we ensure that they not only offer a beautiful and burden-free design, but are also durable so that they can withstand daily use” , adds the press release from OnePlus.
It should be noted that the bend test is one of the ways to expose the phone to extreme conditions, which may or may not occur with customers in real-world scenarios. However, it is safe to say that in cases where the phone is subjected to extreme conditions, it will suffer catastrophic damage.
