OnePlus 6 Seen Passing Bend Burn and Scratch Tests Following Its Debut

After running a bunch of durability tests, including a scratch, bend and even a burn test, popular YouTuber Zack from JerryRigEverything who ran the tests on the phone, came up with a verdict that the OnePlus 6 is not just durable, but that it's just as tough as its predecessors - the OnePlus 5T and the OnePlus 5.

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. All major smartphones are put through the scratch, bend, and burn tests on this channel to see how they hold up. The new model is also touted to offer "daily water resistance", though the company hasn't revealed any IP rating to support its claim. This is something similar to the OnePlus 5T that also resisted scratches until the Moh level six of hardness.

Designer Hampus Olsson created these wallpapers for the OnePlus 6 to complement its new display. The rear side of the phone also features Gorilla Glass 5 panel.


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. Similar is the case of the glass protection available on top of the dual rear camera setup. The screen was then exposed to an open flame, which it survived for roughly 20 seconds, following which the pixels beneath the exposed area stopped responding permanently.

O2 director of product and category management Magnus McDonald said: "As the exclusive United Kingdom partner for OnePlus we are really excited to be part of another fantastic launch, this time, of the OnePlus 6". Despite a rather surprising amount of flex, there were zero cracks or kinks. Nelson believes this is partly due to the plastic lining between the glass and the metal frame.
