Oppo Reno Undergoes JerryRigEverything’s Durability Test And Survives

The regular OPPO Reno has been subjected to a durability test conducted by JerryRigEverything. Let's see if it can survive through the test or not.

OPPO introduced its Reno phone along with the Reno 10X Zoom. While the regular Reno does not have the namesake rear camera of the 10X Zoom, it comes with a shark-fin pop-up camera and a LED flash for its rear camera setup on the other.

Recently, this handset has been subjected to JerryRigEverything’s testing. As usual, the test of Zack Nelson of this YouTube channel will help viewers have an idea of how durable the phone is under the torture testing.

Beginning with the scratch test, the Gorilla Glass protective layer will scratch at a certain level on the Mohs hardness scale without regard to which device it is used on. Accordingly, the OPPO Reno’s display scratches at level 7. Interestingly, the on-screen fingerprint sensor still works even with many scratches on it. Moving on to the burn test, as you can see on the video, the AMOLED display of the device is turned into white under the test after about 40 seconds, and partially (not completely) recovered after that.

Lastly, the bend test on the phone shows the glass rear panel separating from the device’s frame. And while there was no catastrophic damage on the device this time, the phone seems to have week adhesive. However, the phone didn’t snap and break, which is unlike the OPPO Find X, the brand’s flagship phone launched last year. Also, it is known that other previous models from the brand have not performed well in this test as well.

As the costlier 10X Zoom has the same structure as the vanilla variant, it is expected to have similar durability. Both the phones already go on sales in the Indian market. While the OPPO Reno has the starting price from Rs. 32,999, the 10X Zoom costs Rs. 39,990 for the base variant with 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage.
