Endurance tests, more popular as the years go by
In his day there was a lot of controversy with the iPhone because, simply by carrying them in your pocket, they were folded. Taking into account that they are devices that cost hundreds of euros, the resistance of mobile phones became a matter of relative importance, in a search to know if the terminal in which we have invested so much money will last long enough in the face of inclement weather. life.
Of course, resistance tests became wildly popular, and increasingly imaginative or exaggerated. One of the most popular channels in this regard and that has earned a name based on this class of videos is JerryRigEverything. And, on the occasion of the official presentation of the OnePlus 6, he has obtained a unit to submit to his tests. You have the video below, but it is not recommended to see if you suffer a lot when a mobile is damaged.
This is the resistance of the OnePlus 6: appropriate for day to day
The “analyzed” version in the video is the Mirror black, which features a reflective black color. The protection Gorilla glass of the screen offers quite a bit of scratch resistance, which should result in little damage in normal use. The resistance of the fingerprint sensor in the rear area stands out, which holds without any kind of problems. The AMOLED display is also quite resistant to direct application of fire with a lighter, and is slow to show signs of damage. The body of the device also appears to offer a lot of resistance to bending, despite applying force directly.
In the end, all these tests simply answer one question: Will my mobile hold me for several years? All these tests are excessive, since no one is going to apply a screwdriver directly on the screen or bring a lighter closer to their mobile. But good resistance to these tests shows that there should be no problem on a day-to-day basis. The resistance of the OnePlus 6 seems more than appropriate, and it will already be a question of whether the price is appropriate, taking into account that it is the most expensive OnePlus of all.
