OnePlus made the brand new 8T official earlier at present, and Zack from the JerryRigEverything YouTube channel has already put it by way of the paces of his trademark sturdiness check.
As standard, this entails some scratching, burning, and the ever so notorious bend check. If you happen to’re fascinated by the way it’s fared, take a look.
Unsurprisingly, scratch-wise we’re a degree six on the Mohs hardness scale, with deeper grooves at degree seven. Par for the course on the subject of Gorilla Glass. The perimeters are steel, as are the buttons, whereas the speaker grille up high is plastic, glued into place. The burn check killed some pixels after 30 seconds or so.
Structurally, the 8T is sound. There’s some flex to the body and slight separation to the again glass panel, however nothing pops or shatters, so this one’s a survivor.
