Oppo Reno undergoes durability test, see if it bends

Vlad, 15 July 2019

The Oppo Reno was introduced alongside the headline-grabbing Reno 10x zoom. While it lacks the latter's namesake rear camera, the 'vanilla' Reno does sport the same intriguing triangular pop-up bit that houses the selfie camera on one side, and the LED flash for the rear snappers on the other.

This is the latest device to be put through the now very well known torture testing on the JerryRigEverything YouTube channel. As always, this should give you a feeling of how durable this phone can be expected to be.

The scratch test reveals nothing out of the ordinary, Gorilla Glass is Gorilla Glass and will scratch at similar levels on the Mohs hardness scale regardless of which phone it's used on. The (almost certainly pointless) flame test turns the AMOLED pixels white after around thirty seconds, and they never quite recover.

Finally, the all-important bend test. Past Oppo devices haven't fared well in this one, but while the Reno's glass back separates from the frame somewhat because of weak adhesive, there's no catastrophic damage this time around.
