Xiaomi 12 Pro survived JerryRigEverything’s durability test suggesting the smartphone is structurally stronger than the OnePlus 10 Pro. The OnePlus handset did not survive the bend test and broke in half. During the rigorous testing, the phones were exposed to scratches, fire and a bend test. Xiaomi 12 Pro and OnePlus 10 Pro have similar specs. These are two flagship models from Xiaomi and OnePlus, respectively. While the OnePlus 10 Pro debuted in India in March, the Xiaomi 12 Pro was launched last month.
In an eight-plus-minute video posted by Zack Nelson on his YouTube channel JerryRigEverything, the Xiaomi 12 Pro is put through the regular scratch test. The phone has a Corning Gorilla Glass Victus display and a screen protector provided by Xiaomi. The screen of the phone started showing light scratches at hardness level six on the Mohs scale and deeper gouges at level seven, which a phone might not experience on a day-to-day basis. This is similar to the performance of the OnePlus 10 Pro in the JerryRigEverything test.
Despite these deep scratches on the display, especially in the area above the in-display fingerprint sensor, the Xiaomi 12 Pro continued to recognize touch inputs. Regarding the fire test, the screen was fried after approximately 30 seconds of exposure to a flame from a lighter leaving a white mark. The Xiaomi phone gets an aluminum frame and a frosted back. The video shows that the paint on the frame is peeling off and the frosted paint scratches easily.
On the last lap, Nelson tries to bend the smartphone in the middle. The Xiaomi 12 Pro remained intact, however, there were clicks suggesting internal damage. By comparison, the OnePlus 10 Pro broke in half during the bend test.
The Xiaomi 12 Pro price in India has been set at Rs. 62,999 for the 8GB RAM model. The 12GB RAM variant carries a price tag of Rs. 66,999. Xiaomi has launched the phone in Couture Blue, Noir Black and Opera Mauve color options.
