OnePlus Nord has failed the Durability test, cracks under Pressure

The Durability test of JerryRigEverything tested OnePlus Nord, and it seems to have passed the scratch test, but yielded in the fire and bend tests. The OnePlus Nord succumbs to pressure with its internal cracking and becoming useless after placing tremendous strain on it. The OnePlus Nord is the new mid-range device for the company, and the durability test reveals that some settlements had to be made to meet the aggressive price point. The new smartphone’s release date is August 4, 2020.

JerryRgEverything’s Zack Nelson begins the video durability check on OnePlus Nord by scraping the surface at different stages. On the Moh scale, the mobile device is seen scratching at level 6 with deeper scratches at level 7. The OnePlus Nord has security from Gorilla Glass 5 upfront. He found a layer of plastic shielding between the front glass and the phone frame providing additional protection for accidental falls.

Ironically, it is discovered during the Durability test that the OnePlus Nord doesn’t have a metal frame. To give it look like a metal frame, it has a silver anodised coating, but the structure is plastic. Nevertheless, the power button and the key are made of metal, and glass is at the back of the unit. For increased protection, the SIM tray is seen as having input protection.

After about 20 seconds of continuous flame, the OnePlus Nord pixels begin to go white during the fire test. Those pixels never recover completely from the fire, says Nelson. Scratches do not appear to affect the optical fingerprint scanner’s efficiency, which is excellent.

OnePlus Nord structural problems are illustrated during the bend check; however, with a visible kink right after the first Pressure was applied. When Nelson puts more front-end bending pressure on the device, a snap can soon be heard, and the frame near the volume button seems to have broken. Finally, the display is going kaput, leaving the handset useless. There are no cracks in the exterior glass at the back and front, but the internal screen below the glass finally succumbing under Pressure.

Nelson mentions that the Pressure he places on OnePlus Nord is ‘not natural’ and that during daily usage; a smartphone is not put under such pressure. However, when approaching an emergency situation, he recommends OnePlus Nord customers to keep their smartphones in a safe place, and ultimately prevent the back pocket.
