OnePlus 10 Pro is out in China, and while it’s there Some key specificationsIncluding a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor and a 5,000mAh battery, it turns out it might not be the most durable phone on the market. YouTuber Zack Nelson, creator of the popular JerryRigEverything channel, put the OnePlus 10 Pro to its usual durability test, and when he pressed the middle of the phone to try to bend it, it almost snapped in half.
See for yourself – the bend test of part of the video begins It’s 6:57 (This is where the embedded video below should start.)
When Nelson first pressed the OnePlus 10 Pro, the back glass starts to crack, and several cracks appear under the phone Bump the camera like a fireplace. When he pushes again, those cracks turn into a complete crack, causing the top of the phone to tip over.
Once the OnePlus 10 Pro is completely broken, Nelson tears the rest of the back glass to look at the inside of the phone. The phone rests right above the battery, and OnePlus’ placement of the cell — whose top edge lines up with the volume button on the side — seems to have helped create the perfect conditions for Nelson to break it in half with his bare hands. There was also a thinner metallic outer surface around the phone than expected, which could allow the phone to crack as well.
While the exact reason the OnePlus 10 Pro broke when Nelson applied some force isn’t clear, it’s worth noting that he was trying to push the phone to its structural limits. It is unlikely that many regular users will try to break their phone in half (please don’t try it at home).
But Nelson’s test shows that the phone is prone to damage when bent too far, which is something you should keep in mind if you want to get one for yourself. OnePlus did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the video or if it plans to make any changes to the OnePlus 10 Pro to make it more durable.
OnePlus isn’t the only company that has come under scrutiny for easy-to-bend devices. Some owners have reported that their iPhone 6 and 6 Plus is bent – Including the edge Dan Seifert – Internal documents released as part of a lawsuit revealed that Apple knew the phones were more prone to bending from iPhone 5S. In 2018, Nelson also found that the iPad Pro was released that year It can break when bentAnd Asus’ ROG Phone 5 Didn’t hold up well into 2021As for.
