Improved OnePlus 11 survives torture test that left OnePlus 10 Pro and OnePlus 10T broken in half
OnePlus officially unveiled the OnePlus 11 globally on February 7. The phone features the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, up to 16 GB of RAM, 256 GB of storage, and a 5000 mAh battery. Topping it all off is a 6.7-inch 3,216x1,440 resolution LTPO AMOLED display boasting a 120 Hz refresh rate. Following his long-standing tradition of putting newly released flagship smartphones through their paces in a series of durability tests, YouTuber JerryRigEverything has now tested a OnePlus 11.
Starting with the scratch test, the Gorilla Glass Victus on the OnePlus 11 scratched at an expected level 6 on the Mohs Hardness Scale with deeper marks at level 7. So, you won’t have to worry about keys/coins leaving their marks on your OnePlus 11’s display.
That said, the under-display fingerprint scanner stopped working altogether when the screen on top was scratched at level 7.
Moving on to the flame test, the LTPO AMOLED proved durable enough to resist a lighter flame for more than 50 seconds without any dead/unresponsive pixels.
Fortunately, the OnePlus 11 managed to survive the grueling bend test with cracked back glass being the only casualty. This is a marked improvement over the OnePlus 10 Pro and the OnePlus 10T both of which snapped in half in the same test.
All in all, the OnePlus 11 is fairly sturdy but it is highly recommended to use a screen protector and a cover for added durability.
