Following its launch that occurred last week, the handset has earned a lot of appreciation from first-time grabbers as it packs high-end specs.
Now, the new handset has reportedly received its first durable test that shows the smartphone can take care of itself in rough conditions.
The handset went through a series of test including scratches, burns, and bends — to our surprise, we were not at all, disappointed with the device’s overall performance. To begin with, the OnePlus 5 device was scratched with a coin and key at first, left a mark but were easy to erase.
Nevertheless, the OnePlus 5 was spotted sustaining severe scratches at the back with sharp objects like knife and razor.
The OnePlus 5 also went through the fire test where its display started showing white pixels after almost 40 seconds, which further hints that the handset should never be brought close to fire.
Coming to the bend test, the OnePlus 5 back popped up when the pressure was exerted with hands but did not bend beyond a point. The handset convincingly passed the bend test. To recall, the handset came with a 23-megapixel rear sensor and a 16-megapixel camera at the front for selfies.
The new dual-SIM handset runs Android 7.1 Nougat out-of-the-box and came with a 5.5-inch QHD (1440×2560 pixels) display.
In line with connectivity, the flagship from OnePlus rolled out with 4G, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, and GPS. The handset measures 152.7×74.7×7.0mm and weigh 156 grams.
