OnePlus 5T Water Resistance Update - The Aftermath!

2581 ratings | 113961 views
The OnePlus 5T is an amazing phone. I recently dunked it in water to test out its water resistance. This video is an update to let you guys know what still works and what doesn't! Also, please don't drop your OnePlus 5T in water. It's not advertised as being water resistant.

Matthew Moniz Dunk the phone in a jar filled with raw rice for 24 hours, after that you will see it working completely fine. Test it!!

Hey man, awesome video. But you should have tested all those things after every test. Now we dont know if the camera stopped working after the 5 sec water test or the 30 sec. But still thanks for the awesome video! And thanks for revisiting!! :D

Good thing I have no plans of dunking any of my portable devices on water. Even if it is water proof like my good ol' Xperia Z5.

This is why it's better to buy an IP67/68 device. My S8 survived the American River in Sacramento for 2 days and 1 night before a river diver treasure hunter found it and returned it. If you're watching this vid, you're probably wondering if you can still dip your OnePlus5, well looks like it might cost another 550 or so if your one plus dips into water. Might as well go S8 or Note 8

TheMeganano (1 month ago)
If this is to inform viewers on how the phone copes with being dunked in water in the long run, not using a blow dryer or a bag of rice or something to dry the phone is already a mistake. This only informs me on how a badly cared for phone dies slowly. might have as well left it in the water?
debasis22 (1 month ago)
After recovering phone out of water or heavy rain please do this before using, 1. Remove sim, mem card, battery, if removable. And dont turn on screen 2. Put it in air tight container with rice for around 5 to 6 hours 3. Don't use any kind of heat source or air blower near it. Keep it under sunlight for 1 hour. Be sure to let it warm up a bit then keep it in shadowed place till cools down naturally 4. Symptoms for a week : restarting abruptly, mic and speaker problem, abrupt heat problems 5. Max to max it took me a week to get my phone back to normal state. All the best. Have patience. Btw am typing this from my Lenovo A6000 which had gone through similar torture months back Getting 1+5t in a day :) Best affordable Android till date

I used my OnePlus 3T in the rain alot before. And it's been two years since I've purchased it and it is still running strong! I never had any sort of glitches or issues with it after. Upgrading to the 5T very soon
stevenbenjamincole (1 month ago)
You haven’t had your 3T for 2 years. It is just over a year old. (Released November 2016)
Freedom Evans (1 month ago)
Brandon K Garcia same. Well, most phones are splash resistant nowadays. I have gotten water over my phone several times during the rain it's not a problem. Only problem would be submerging it under water.

Yang Yang Aditya (1 month ago)
Hi Matthew, this is a great video. But, I believe it would be better if you release this video together with the last week ones. Why? imagine that some peoples have watching your previous video and thought that the oneplus 5T is really can immerse in the water. Then they did it later after watch your video. So that will be a misleading video from your previous video. Have a nice day!

So is the phone splash resistant, at least? Will it hold against minor water splashes without any damage?
Deepansh Bhatia (1 month ago)
That's great, then, thanks a lot! The phone, then, can be used in mild rain, I guess? That's all I need, really.
Sharky165 (1 month ago)
Deepansh Bhatia Yes, it will. The issue it has is with immersion; it doesn't have the necessary seal around the perimeter and rubber gaskets that allow immersion and therefore lend IP 67 or 68 ratings.

sorry to bother but are u gonna do any sort of giveaway for this christmas??
Elin Alexandrov (1 month ago)
Matthew, I believe the phone is salvageable. The reason your display is misbehaving is that the connection to the motherboard has started to corrode. The last 4 phones from Oneplus are using the good old metal shell formula of several generations of iPhones. The shell can be easily removed and the display/motherboard assembly left to dry in a bowl of rice for a couple of days. What your interesting test shows is that the phone does not allow lots of water get inside of it. If it was completely soaked, it would have died in a few minutes/hours. Awesome test!
tijmenspier (27 days ago)
If you're gonna open it up, there's no point in waiting for the water to evaporate. Just dry it off with a towel, drive off the rest of the moisture with something hyrophobic, clean, and reassemble. The only thing you'd need to replace or really work on is the camera modules.

Al Reid (1 month ago)
@Mathew Moniz. If you want to thoroughly dry out the phone, put it in a bag with a cup of uncooked rice and leave overnight. That will soak up any residual H2o.

Just bought the 5t after watching your video. Hope it lasts for a couple of years XP. Please do a 4th week update sir.
I think you should put the phone in a closed bag with Rice to get rid of the Water. May be it could fix the screen and cameras, please try this and let us know if it get fix, I feel that many of us want the phone to return to its original state. Great video btw.

by your first video i thought it has water resistance but they didn't want to waste money for ip rating,but now i understand it doesn't get rating because it doesn't have water resistant at all,not even a bit
Marcelo Cunha (18 days ago)
There are a couple of videos showing inside of OP5T. And it doesn't have anything to prevent water from get in. It isn't water proof. End of the rumors. Let's keep our phones dry.
tijmenspier (27 days ago)
I remembermy Find 5 having no water resistance certifications, but a touchscreen that did work in water for some reason.
Freedom Evans (1 month ago)
559KING splash resistant means that it can handle water over the front and back of the phone, but not being fully submerged in water. Honestly most phones nowadays are splash resistant.

Undercovermc Completely agree with you. The phone is definitely not water resistant, but can survive water somewhat although it might die. This doesn't make it a bad phone,a nd overall I am thinking of getting it, but I completely agree with you. People are thinking it's all fine and damdy, then BOOM. Dead phone.

So dont put this phone in water. I use an A3 2017 from Samsung (270 $ phone ) and I use it under the shower,I wash it under water and I never want to use a non IP67 or 68 phone
Lionel Lim (29 days ago)
its bullshit even with the IP67 or IP68 rating. Its just a marketing gimmick as water resistant unless its coating with oil. My iphone 7plus and samsung s8 died just with a splash of water from the pool, not even dunking it in the pool. So dont trust what you see guys. its just marketing.
Rikkert_ (1 month ago)
If i were you i wouldn't be doing that, there isnt a single phone on the market that is actually waterproof. All IP67 and 68 stands for is water resistance. Water resistant and water proof is not the same thing. If you end up getting water damage, which you will if you keep washing it under water etc, then nobody is going to help you because they never advertised water proof phones.
Flossy (1 month ago)
And watch your phone randomly stop working after a few months since phones are not supposed to be repeatedly exposed to water, even if it's advertised as water resistance since the seals can be worn out especially the charging port and headphone jack

Antonove (1 month ago)
So the phone isn’t waterproof and dropping the phone in water is gonna cause some problems. Not much of a surprise since it was never marketed as being waterproof. Manufacturers don’t just “by chance” make a phone waterproof, you need rubber gaskets and seals around every possible point of entry to keep liquid out. OnePlus made a great phone at a good price but seriously, all the fanboys screaming about how this phone is waterproof and perfect should just stop. People are gonna start thinking it actually is shits gonna start breaking.

Shersha Basheer (1 month ago)
that boy I m a previous owner of oneplus 3 and current owner of LG G6. When I load my phone with those kind of applications which I used in my oneplus 3 in the LG G6, then there is noticeable performance issues. My wife is currently using my old one plus three, so trust me when I say this there is a big difference when you compare them side-by-side. Now I am planning to upgrade my phone because of this and I have two options, the LG v30 Plus and the oneplus 5t. Due to my bad experience with the LG because of their software Optimisation, I am in favour of the 5t.
that boy (1 month ago)
Shersha Basheer that's weird. I have had my LG g6 since it first came put and still no lag and its performance is great
Shersha Basheer (1 month ago)
Writing this comment from my G6. Don't go for G6, it lags in time. Performance goes down with time. Using it for almost 5 months and planning to change it because of performance issue. I am a previous owner of OnePlus 3 and it is fluidic compared to this G6. If you want water resistance, go for LG V30+. Atleast it has Snapdragon 835.
