    Hi All,

    looks like i would need to take utmost care of my op6 after going through this video

    glass back is very very fragile
    oneplus should launch another variant of this phone with metalic back similar to op3/5

    Well if you look at the testing here: it is really strong. Metal will probably bent with harder drops. Just having a good case and screen protector helps a lot

    the rear glass lacks the plastic bumper that is used around the front glass. This makes it way more fragile, just so OnePlus could make the device look slightly better. Poor design choice. The back glass is already super easy to scratch, so making it shatter more easily is just lame.

    that is why they put a case in the box. lol. I upgrade from 5 to 6. I am not happy with the new glass design either. it makes the phone slippery, thick and heavy. well, oneplus is famous for making fast but cheap phone.

    I have never seen a single smartphone with glass back having a platic bumber.
    And for example, Xiaomi Mi Mix 1&2 doesn't even have a plastic bumper on the front...

    This is because people easily believe all the marketing lies OP uses to sell its phones, so they believe the gimmicks are real. Last year they pushed the OP5/5T's camera as it's primary cutting edge feature but it turned out to be just very ordinary. This year they've focused on the texture hard glass design and water resistance of the OP6 as there was really no other distinguishing feature ( the phone is essentially a watered down version of other top models) but both features are proving not to be exactly true as those tests show.

    Morons are making videos to break their phone and prove a 1+ smartphone isn't a Casio G-Shock watch?
    Is it really a surprise?

    This guys willingly broke hundreds of watches, and not to be 5min. famous on Youtube…

    Using back cover might reduce the risk of breaking...

    Glass will break much easier than metal. But even on my OP5 I used the carbon bumpercase, wich is perfect. So I did the same with my OP6. I would not rely on the case that is in the box to save it from cracking . The bumpercase has proofed itself to me, as named, by bumping around when it fell..

    When you compare the praises from the youtubers (reviews) and the problems reported in the forum, that should give you the answer.

    Funny enough, although it's a lot of paid ads Linus will give his own opinion on items. He is very critical most of the time
