The OnePlus 3 is the latest flagship and fourth device from Chinese phone manufacturer, OnePlus. Made from a single slab of space grade aluminium, to achieve the unibody design, OnePlus also says apart from being lightweight, the OnePlus 3 has outstanding strength. And how else do you prove that last part other than by carrying out a drop test?
The OnePlus team headed to Mimizan, France, to carry out this drop test. The phone is thrown out of an airplane flying at an altitude of 750 ft. The phone survives the drop, though it lands on a grassy plain which is still sufficient to damage a phone, but can’t be compared to landing on tarmac, asphalt, or concrete. You can watch the video to see for yourself.
The OnePlus 3 has a 5.5” optic AMOLED display with Corning gorilla glass 4, a snapdragon 820 processor clocked at 2.15GHz, 6GB RAM, 16MP rear camera, 8MP front camera, runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and is powered by a 3000mAh battery with support for OnePlus’s fast charge technology dubbed Dash Charge.
The phone comes in graphite and soft gold, ditching the sandstone black design of the first two phones and costs $400. If you still want the sandstone design, the company has a sandstone case and a couple of other wooden ones.
