Is the new OnePlus 5T as strong as the OnePlus 5? Have you improved something? Zack Nelson returns to the fore with his particular video in which he offers the endurance test of the OnePlus 5T. A test with which we can check closely if the investment for the new OnePlus smartphones is up to the competition. Will your aluminum housing be folded? Will the 18: 9 screen be scratched easily? Next, the answer.
The commercial launch of OnePlus 5T will start tomorrow, at 3:00 p.m. in Spain. However, if you still have doubts about your acquisition, the following video from JerryRigEverything may be the push you needed. And it is that the following test lets us see a resistance test of the OnePlus 5T.
Video with the OnePlus 5T resistance test
The truth is that we are not going to walk around the bush. The OnePlus 5T behaves at the same level as its predecessor, the OnePlus 5. The video that you attach below makes it clear that the Asian firm maintains the level of finishes and quality of materials, in this case the aluminum and hardened glass.
The first part of this test of resistance of the OnePlus 5T is to check the level of hardness of the screen , its resistance to scratches . In this sense, the layer of Gorilla Glass 5 protects the renewed screen Optic AMOLED with aspect ratio 18: 9 at the height of the largest in the sector. As you can see, the hardened glass shows resistance to materials with hardness 6 on the Mohs scale.
Another of the sections that highlights the test is the hardness of the fingerprint sensor finish, which is not easy to damage. In the video it is appreciated that the biometric sensor, now integrated in the back of the housing, supports without any problems the challenges of day to day without diminishing its capabilities.
The OnePlus 5T does not bend
As regards the case, in this field OnePlus keeps the type at the same level as OnePlus 5 did half a year ago. As Zack Nelson shows, treated aluminum easily supports friction with other metals. However, sharp objects and as extreme as the knife of a cutter manage to damage the casing, although in this sense there is no greater innovation compared to other smartphones with metal casing.
At the back, the glass layer covering the double chamber also supports the test without too much effort. Not so much the LED flash, which comes covered with a layer of plastic material.
Plastic is also made the flange that fuses the screen with the case, in the same way that Apple does on your iPhone 8 . In this case, you can see how the edge of the blade slices the surface of this material. A construction designed to avoid breaking the screen when the smartphone falls to the floor in profile.
The flame test, which consists of bringing a lighter close to the surface of the display for 10 seconds, shows that the Optic AMOLED panel is not immune. A result that contrasts with the high resistance of the housing. In the latest sequences of the OnePlus 5T endurance test video, we can see how the equipment has a solid construction, with a hardened casing in strategic areas that prevents the OnePlus 5T from being bent. Although it yields in some moments, it does not experience any noticeable damage and returns to its original form.
