Earlier this yr, OnePlus pulled the wraps off its first-ever pill, the OnePlus Pad. On the spec sheet, the Pad ticks all the correct bins to earn it a spot on our checklist of the most effective Android tablets, however that will not be a lot use if the pill is not constructed to final. Fortunately, Zack Nelson of the JerryRigEverything YouTube channel has a approach of speed-running a median gadget’s lifetime in only a few minutes. The OnePlus Pad and its accompanying Stylo have been not too long ago put to the check, and the outcomes are nothing in need of stunning.


Normally OnePlus telephones aren’t identified to be the hardest of the lot, with issues solely altering not too long ago with the OnePlus 11.

And issues began off that approach, with the display scratching at a stage six on the Mohs hardness scale, then exhibiting deeper grooves at a stage seven, similar to the iPad.

Within the burn check, the 11.6-inch 144Hz show survived publicity to a unadorned flame for round 10 seconds earlier than the pixels turned off. The harm wasn’t everlasting, nevertheless, and the pixels revived themselves after a while, which is typical conduct of an IPS LCD. Many of the body is fairly rugged as nicely, completed in metallic throughout, as much as and together with the metallic quantity buttons. There’s a small plastic part to permit wi-fi charging for the Stylo, however its placement is not detrimental to the structural integrity.


The body design is so strong that in a bend check, the OnePlus Pad solely deformed barely. Sure, the body was completely bent when pressure was utilized from the again, however the show stayed absolutely useful and did not come out. Even when bent from the aspect, the show popped out solely barely, whereas retaining full performance. Many iPad fashions had failed this identical check previously, giving OnePlus a transparent win over its rival.

We have been disenchanted the stylus snapped clear in half, revealing an 82mAh battery inside, as an alternative of capacitors just like the Samsung S Pen. Within the decrease half, we see a neat association of copper pads for stress sensing, in addition to the wi-fi charging coils and magnetic materials so the stylus snaps to the pill’s physique. It is revealed that the guidelines of the Stylo could be changed by twisting after which pulling.

Evidently, designers appear to have been studying from the iPad whereas engaged on the OnePlus Pad. We want let’s imagine the identical in regards to the stylus, however at the least the pill is robustly constructed, and may endure a couple of years of use with little problem.
