A new phone debut typically means yet another new torture test of JerryRigEvery, and that is actually the case with the OnePlus 8T. Zack from JerryRigEverything has already made some choices and wings for OnePlus’ latest flagship, and it costs just as well as one might expect.

As far as the JerryRigEverything durability test goes, this OP8T test went as regularly as they come. As usual, the screen scratches at a Mohs level 6 “with deeper grooves at a level 7.” The chassis and buttons are all metal, although the same cannot be said of the speaker grille at the top (it’s plastic). The SIM tray is revealed to be sealed against water, which makes sense. Zack notes that the fingerprint sensor often did not want to recognize his fingerprint, even though the part of the screen that the sensor is under was not scratched.

The video ends with relatively successful fire test and bending tests; the cabinet has some flex but nothing cracks or breaks. It is noted several times that the 8T is a nice phone, but nothing worth upgrading from if you already have the 8; this seems to be the case with most OnePlus -T phones. You can watch the video in full via the integration above or the link below.

Demolition video

Zack has now released a demolition video for the OnePlus 8T that gives us a good look at what’s under the exterior housing. The new video shows the two combined battery cells, each with a capacity of 2,200m-2,250mAh, allowing the phone’s 60W wired charging to work. This was not a secret, but it is still interesting to see in person.

The rest of the demolition is not that eventful, except that the OnePlus 8T uses an ample amount of thermal paste around the motherboard, battery and camera modules. The paste together with the steam chamber cooling system should help keep the phone at safer temperatures for longer periods.
