Back in February it has been demonstrated that at the time the new OnePlus 10 Pro was disturbingly easy to bend the phone in half in your hands. Now, the company’s latest flagship phone, the OnePlus 10T, failed the exact same endurance test.
Again, phone torturer at it’s best JerryRigEverything is the strength test source. And once again, the OnePlus 10T languished alarmingly quickly during the bend test, with the frame cracking in two from a relatively light pressure.
It seems to take a bit longer to reach that failure point than the 10 Pro, perhaps due to the extra material for the rails. However, once the tester flips the phone over and tries to fold it inward against the screen, it looks like a Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4.
The point of failure, right under the camera module and on the battery, seems to be very similar to the OnePlus 10 Pro.
Naturally, no phone would be subjected to even this level of pressure under normal circumstances. But the thing is, the vast majority of flagship phones will withstand that kind of basic pressure, which generally bodes well for their ultimate longevity.
The bend test also confirmed that the cheaper OnePlus 10T switched to a plastic frame, explaining the disappearance of the OnePlus 10 Pro’s antenna lines.
We awarded the OnePlus 10T four stars in our review, praising its performance, fast charging and screen, but bemoaning the lackluster camera.
