OnePlus shows us how it's testing the durability of its One smartphone (no bend test here)

As you’ll see in the video, the OnePlus One doesn’t go through any proper bend tests, though there’s a “sit test” which simulates 55 pounds (25 kg) being pressed against the device 1,000 times. There’s also an impact test (drops from 4 feet - that's 1.2 m), a tumble test, and even a USB stress test. Moreover, the handset is being exposed to light “rain” for 10 minutes, as well as to 130 ºF (55 degrees Celsius) for 4 hours. Naturally, OnePlus claims that these tests don’t alter the handset's functionality.
While at the moment you still need an invite to get your hands on a OnePlus One, it looks like the smartphone will be available to buy directly starting later this month. Next year, OnePlus may launch a new handset - possibly called OnePlus Two - which could have a smaller display than the One (as you may know, this sports a 5.5-inch screen).
- Display 5.5" 1080 x 1920 pixels
- Camera 13 MP / 5 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 801, Quad-core, 2500 MHz
- Storage 64 GB
- Battery 3100 mAh

If OnePlus spent even 10% of the effort they spend on marketing on actually making phones, they'd be off to a far better start. At least the news on their fake company makes me laugh.

The company seems unserious if one looks critically at it. However, I think they have VERY limited money which is why they cannot even do the easiest thing to make money. I am referring to making the hone in abundance. If they were capable of maing many of the phones, they would have sold more than a million, I believe and they would have been better known by now. However, they will probably succeed. By the way, I have the phone and I think they did well for being a first phone.
