OnePlus 3 Undergoes A Torture Test And Features A Strong Build Quality To Survive The Gauntlet
Even though a OnePlus 3 is slower than a Galaxy S7 edge when it comes to firing up apps stored in memory, the $399 flagship smartphone is actually able to hold its own quite well in torture tests, showcasing that affordable handsets sporting a terrific price/performance ratio are often overlooked for possessing inferior build quality.
OnePlus 3 Gets Taken Through The Torture Gauntlet – Here Is The Video To Prove The Smartphone’s Durability
In a video test conducted by Jerry Rig Everything, he decides to take the smartphone to its limits by performing a series of torture tests to see how much the device can withstand. Using a variety of different tools to exert the device to its limits, you can see very well in the video on how the handset is able to able to hold its own against a boatload of extremely sharp objects.
As for the hardware specifications, OnePlus 3 sports a 5.5-inch Optic AMOLED display, and gives off a 1080p resolution. We are glad that the company stayed its hand from incorporating a QHD display, all for the sake of battery life. While we are disappointed that the company only placed a 3,000mAh cell inside the non-removable housing, OnePlus’ Dash Charge technology will allow the smartphone’s battery to charge from 0-60 percent in just a matter of 30 minutes, which is kind of like how Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 functions.
Once again, the company has left out one of the most important features from a smartphone; a MicroSD card slot, but the company did incorporate 64GB of UFS 2.0 storage, which will come in handy when you want to record 4K footage at 30FPS. Apart from recording footage at the granddaddy of all resolutions, OnePlus 3 also comes with a 16MP Sony IMX298 camera sensor, and for those that don’t know, this is the same sensor that is present at the rear side of Huawei Mate 8, the previous generation flagship.
The front camera is a Sony IMX179 8MP sensor, and the chipset that is responsible for delivering all the necessary amount of performance across the board is a Snapdragon 820. Once again, be sure to watch the video at the bottom and give us your thoughts on whether or not you will be upgrading to the affordable flagship or not.
