OnePlus Pad undergoes torture test

YouTuber JerryRigEverything takes pleasure in testing electronics for robustness. The latest victim of its dreaded torture test is the OnePlus Pad. We held our breath, because the company’s smartphones did not always survive this test.

Fortunately, OnePlus’ first tablet does a lot better. The screen has reasonable scratch resistance and shows initial damage at the same time as most iPads. After his knife, the YouTuber grabbed a lighter. The pixels started to discolor after being exposed to the flame for about ten seconds. Crucially, however, they recovered themselves over time. The damage was therefore not permanent.

NEW OnePlus Pad Durability Test - This is awkward...

The most notorious part of this ‘examination’ is the bend test. The OnePlus Pad endured it quite well. If you put pressure on the back, the housing gives way, but the screen did not jump out of the frame. Many iPads fared a lot worse. When the Youtuber applied pressure from the side, the screen of the OnePlus Pad did come loose, but it continued to function.

All in all a great result for a tablet. The separately available stylus, the OnePlus Stylo, did not pass the bend test. It broke miserably in two.

Here’s what you need to know about the OnePlus Pad

We assume that you don’t buy the OnePlus Pad to do a torture test yourself, but just to use it. With an 11.6-inch screen, a fast processor and a fast charger, the tablet has a lot to offer on paper. In our review you can read what we found of the device in practice. Below you can read part of the conclusion.

The OnePlus Pad feels like a carefully thought-out product. It knows how to nestle itself between the entry-level models and the high-end tablets of the competition. For 499 euros you get a great processor, a very nice screen and a long battery life. These are probably the most important features of such a device for many people.

Anyone hoping to buy an iPad Pro killer will be disappointed. The display and speakers cannot compete with more expensive alternatives. In addition, the range of optimized apps for Android tablets is still quite small.
