OnePlus 6 passes scratch, burn, and bend testing

OnePlus 6 passes scratch, burn, and bend testing

The OnePlus 6 was finally unveiled about 12 hours ago after quite a bit of shameless self-leaking, and it seems like a pretty solid phone.

In his video, Zack starts off by doing a scratch test and uses the Mohs scale (a test of hardness) to examine how susceptible the screen is to scratches.

Unlike its OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T predecessors, the OnePlus 6 is covered on the front and back with Corning Gorilla Glass 5, but the company has assured consumers that the phone's all-glass design doesn't raise questions over its durability. This is unlike the last year's OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T that both had a glass covering only at the front.

Finally, the all-important bend test. Unsurprisingly, the premium built OnePlus 6 was able to pass the full range of practical, quirky, painful and outright unnecessary durability tests with flying colors. Scratches on the OnePlus smartphone surface at the sixth level of the scale, while some deeper signs appear at the seventh level.

OnePlus who also threw in splash resistance this time around, did not have an IP rating to show for it, but the company claims that the phone can withstand splashes and the accidental fall into the sink easily, but cannot withstand a dip into the pool. Out back, the fingerprint sensor and camera don't scratch at all from the razor. Similar is the case of the glass protection available on top of the dual rear camera setup. The OnePlus 6's AMOLED panel survives about 20 seconds of the flame before being permanently marred, which isn't unexpected. The metal frame of the OnePlus 6 is also hard enough to resist from being bent. The frame remains intact and the glass is unshattered. The phone bends by a pretty noticeable amount, but no cracks or kinks appear even when lots of force is applied.

The Chinese OEM certainly had confidence in its first ever glass-backed design, and Zach's self-proclaimed "semi-scientific review with razor blades" rewarded that trust.
