Newly launched OnePlus 9 Prowas immediately tested by one of the most popular researchers of smartphone durability, the author of YouTube channel JerryRigEverything, Zach Nelson, who recently ripped open the gaming ASUS ROG Phone 5 with his bare hands. The standard tests with fire from a lighter, sharp objects and testing the bending strength of the case pleasantly surprised and satisfied the strict expert.
Before the first round of trials, Zach Nelson notedthe use of cameras in the smartphone, created in conjunction with Hasselblad, which once sent cameras to the moon with the Apollo 11 mission. The expert intends to conduct additional tests to check the quality of shooting with the OnePlus 9 Pro camera.
The first test was traditionally carried out withusing sharp objects that determine the parameters of the screen's resistance to scratching using the Mohs scale. Scratching damage to Gorilla Glass began to show on contact with objects with a Mohs hardness 6. The use of harder objects with a hardness index of "7" resulted in deeper scratches.
Zak also noted that the metal framemade in a silver color, which is good for a smartphone, since the scratches on the metal have the same color and are almost invisible. The expert also scratched all the buttons on the OnePlus 9 Pro and made sure they were made of metal. The SIM card slot is protected against water in the form of a standard O-ring. Scratching the area of the screen, under which the fingerprint sensor is mounted, did not affect the performance of the scanner and caused Nelson's satisfaction.
Next step AMOLED display of OnePlus 9 Prowas subjected to a fire test using a lighter that heated the surface for 40 seconds. The white trace that appeared after heating did not affect the operation of the touch screen.
Third, toughest smartphone bending testThe OnePlus 9 Pro was also successful. When bending back, a slight bend appeared on the body, but it did not crack, “crunch” or break. After bending forward, the body regained its shape and stopped bending even with maximum effort. In conclusion, Zach announced that the OnePlus 9 Pro smartphone passed the durability test with flying colors and justifies the title of an expensive flagship device.
