The OnePlus 5 was only announced this morning, and JerryRigEverything’s has already performed a durability test. How did it hold up? Surprisingly well.
JerryRigEverything went through his usual tests. He started off with a scratch test of the front display, which rated as well as every other flagship smartphone he’s tested before (iPhone 7, Galaxy S8, G6), getting up to a level six on the Mohs scale. That’s about as well as you can hope for from Gorilla Glass 5.
He then moved on to the ceramic home button, which proved to be tough as nails. With a razor, no scratches were retained. Afterwards he tested out the metal front earphone grill and camera, both of which were resistant to scratches although the grill’s coat of paint was scratched off.
The body itself will take in scratches from a razor, taking off slabs of the Midnight Black paint. But for most everyday objects your phone may encounter, like keys and coins, it does a great job of fending off permanent damage.
The fire test on the display also yielded strong results. It took 40 seconds for the pixels to go white. They never fully recovered, but the long resistant timing bodes well in case your phone quickly comes across fire.
JerryRigEverything’s final test was the bend test, which proved the OnePlus 5’s true craftsmanship. With a full-force bend, the display slightly popped up, but didn’t shatter and fell back into place. The aluminum body does gives some, but it ended being quite sturdy.
If you are thinking of picking up a OnePlus 5, these results are definitely positive. If not, then it’s still fun to see someone stress test a phone and see how well it holds up. You can check out JerryRigEverything’s complete video down below.
