OnePlus 11 does not break in half during bend test, even though its rear glass cracks
Last year, the OnePlus 10 Pro and OnePlus 10T managed to crack and snap in half when subjected to the now classic JerryRigAll bending test. There are a small number of devices that have already failed this test, and the fact that two of them do so in a year is not good publicity for the brand’s emphasis on durability, even if these tests are far more extreme than what most people could undergo. their phones in everyday life (unless you like to put it in your back pocket, without a case, and tend to forget it’s there and sit on it).
So with all that in mind, you’re probably wondering how OnePlus’ latest smartphone performs in the same test. Lucky for you, Zach from JerryRigAll has finally gotten its hands on a OnePlus 11, and it’s ready to test. So grab some popcorn and press play below to find out what’s going on.
Alright, so the title of this article has already spoiled it for you, but just in case you need any more spoilers, here we go. It all starts, as usual, with the scratch test, which only confirms that there is glass on top of the screen, and nothing else. It scratches at level 6 on the Mohs hardness scale, with deeper grooves appearing at level 7.
The frame is metal, as is the power button. The screen lasts more than 50 seconds under a direct flame without permanent damage to the pixels, which is not always acquired. Unfortunately, the fingerprint scanner stops working when there are level 7 scratches on the screen right where it is placed.
And finally, the test we’ve all been waiting for. The back glass cracks, but the phone does not break in half and continues to function normally. It’s a marked improvement over its 2022 predecessors, and if you use a good sturdy case, you’ll most likely prevent the rear glass from cracking no matter how much flex you expose it to.
