OnePlus 3 passes the torture chamber test: gets scratched, heated and (somewhat) bent

OnePlus 3 is one of the best value-for-money handsets you can currently buy in the US, as it offers a Snapdragon 820 chipset, 6 GB of RAM/64 GB of storage, and a 16 MP optically-stabilized camera, plus almost-stock Android Marshmallow experience at the price of $400. Granted, the screen purists will scoff at the unnatural AMOLED display hues, and battery life is just below average, but at this price point, some things had to give. 

There is one extra advantage of owning a OnePlus 3, it seems, which could only be revealed when the phone is put through the usual torture chamber of scratching, heating and bending. It seems that the OnePlus 3 is one tough nut to crack, and it will keep on ticking even if you apply significant pressure trying to bend it at the weakest frame point of the volume rocker. On the other hand, it scratches pretty easily with a sharp knife in hand, but, still, what doesn't.
