OnePlus 10 Pro spectacularly fails durability test, breaks in half

The latest OnePlus flagship is a lot less durable than its predecessor.

What you need to know

  • The OnePlus 10 Pro failed to survive JerryRigEverything's durability test.
  • It snapped in half during the bend test.
  • OnePlus devices have usually performed well during the YouTuber's durability tests.

The OnePlus 10 Pro, which made its debut in China in January, is a decent upgrade over its predecessor — at least on paper. Ahead of the phone's global launch, a durability test from JerryRigEverything has revealed a serious problem.

Unlike last year's OnePlus 9 Pro, which came out strong in Zack Nelson's durability test, the OnePlus 10 Pro snapped in half while the YouTuber tried to check its structural integrity. As you can see at the 6:57 mark in the video below, the back glass of the latest OnePlus flagship began to crack as soon as Nelson applied some force on the middle. The majority of the cracks appeared right below the OnePlus 10 Pro's rear camera bump. Once more force was applied, the phone pretty much broke in half.

Quite clearly, the OnePlus 10 Pro isn't as durable as some of the best Android phones on the market. While most OnePlus phones have performed well in Nelson's durability tests, the OnePlus 10 Pro isn't the first to crack during the bend test. The original OnePlus Nord, which was tested in July 2020, also cracked under pressure. Similarly, ASUS' ROG Phone 5 broke entirely from the sides during the bend test.

Although the OnePlus 10 Pro failed the bend test, it did perform well in most other tests. Thanks to Gorilla Glass Victus, the phone's display started showing scratches only at level 6 on the Mohs scale, with deeper grooves appearing at level 7. Nelson also found that despite not having an official IP rating, the phone's SIM card slot includes a water-protective gasket. This which means users won't have to worry about accidental splashes.

More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Peloton Reverses Course, Will Continue to Support Apple GymKit

Earlier this week, Peloton said that it would drop support for Apple's GymKit feature that syncs data to the Health app. Customers were unhappy with the decision and complained to the company, leading Peloton to announce a change in plans. Peloton on Thursday said that after listening to member feedback on GymKit, the integration will continue to be offered. Peloton wanted to stop offering GymKit integration in favor of the Peloton One-Tap tracking feature, but GymKit has been a key feature on the $2,500 Bike+ since its 2020 debut , and other Peloton machines since 2022. After listening to Members’ feedback about discontinuing Apple GymKit integration for Bike+, we have decided to continue offering Apple GymKit integration. As a Member-first company, we are always grateful to our Members for sharing their views. — Peloton (@onepeloton) February 16, 2024 The One-Tap tracking app does monitor distance, pace, and heart rate metrics, but only basic information is synced t
