    Not sure how can you be so strictly sure saying that in this early stage of the phone release but it's up to anyone to decide.

    Lol, so now are gonna tell me that after release their manufacturing technology will change? Do you believe this one was an early adapted build? Such a nonsense. The beginning of sales is almost knocking the door...

    I do not mean that. I mean that we really need a time to see if having a plastic frame on this exact phone with this exact manufacturing will really be a big problem and worth the fuss in the forums.

    Do you remember, where this "fuss" start from? It did from OnePlus marketing Nord as being made of premium materials... It's not fuss, as you say it. That's misleading marketing.

    I can't deny the fact that the plastic is not the top tier 'premium' material and the fact that they maybe should've have mention somewhere that the frame is plastic. But I would not call this a misleading marketing considering the price of the phone itself.

    Marketing is misleading, price doesn't justify open lies. For $470 there're much better options in the market, if that's your point.

    No, that's not my point. :)

    It doesn't change my point, that price doesn't justify misleading marketing.

    They cut corners with the plastic frame. They didn't want to go for an all-plastic design otherwise it would look cheap. They used a glass back at the cost of comprising the structural integrity. That said, I'd prefer this over a pure plastic phone. I'm never going to replicate those stress tests.

    Let's hope you never leave your phone on the sofa and forget or sit with your phone In your pocket as the stress will be much greater. ;)

    I thought it was more like a BS problem

    Dropped.
    Shocked.
    Shook.
    Sunburned.
    Sand papered.
    Artificially sweated on for 3 days.
    We take quality seriously. And safe to say, we do a lot of weird stuff to do it. But in the end, it’s worth the pain to make sure our phones measure up.
    Really?

    It was a joke, as you were implying my corpulence will break the phone :p

    Like I said, I don't replicate these stress tests in real life. Sitting on the phone on a sofa wouldn't generate the same pressure required to snap it.

    I guess you better read some of the thread of bending OP phones that didn't fail this test. 🤭🤭🤭

    And most of them are people sitting with phones in their backpocket, which is a big no-no and something I never do.
