3180 ratings | 159320 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.

Hope everyone is having a great week! Here's an update on what works and what doesn't from my original OnePlus 5T water test!

Matthew Moniz hey could u do revisit again
Mauro Diaz (2 months ago)
My dear, consult, that means that this device has something in it a protection against water and dust ?????, because by the tests that you did clearly it is seen that I pass the water tests very well, to all this also I own an OP5T, and without a doubt it is a smartphone beast, apart from how beautiful it is aesthetically, greetings from Santiago de Chile !!!

Matthew Moniz plz make part 3 so we an know after how much time the cloudiness goes away
akitha perera (3 months ago)
Matthew Moniz I also got my phone wet and the cameras are cloudy. Does it evaporate over time or do I have to de-assemble the phone and clean it up myself?

I don't care for the CEO of one plus he is a used car salesman and he blacklisting the you tube reviewers that has been criticizing the way they handling there customer service because it sucks as for a company oneplus sucks too I do not like the CEO he is full of b.s. plus the phone is going up in price
aidanjt (22 days ago)
All said, it's still impressive that the phone holds up so well to 5 minutes of submersion despite having no IP certification.

Does it still work. Because it's been 2 months?

It's not water resistant
Oskari Kuutniemi (3 months ago)
As long as the water isn't causing corrosion in the metal of the electronic components, every electronic device is water resistant. Though the water might in some cases mess with circuit boards if it hasn't dried and isn't clean enough, but perfectly pure water doesn't conduct electricity (for example the circuit board might let unwanted chemicals in the water making it somewhat conductive again).

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

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
Ren Gonzalez (12 days ago)
Or you can buy a mid-range alternative of the S8 called the Galaxy A8 (2018) for the same $500.

What are your thoughts on whether or not the phone will survive through approximately 2 years of use with standard Seattle raining conditions and regular use?

TheMeganano (4 months 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 (4 months 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 (4 months ago)
You haven’t had your 3T for 2 years. It is just over a year old. (Released November 2016)
Freedom Evans (4 months 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.
Alex Salter (4 months ago)
id never buy a phone without a 3.5mm jack

Drop the phone in a 6 feet deep pool. I don't think it'll last with that amount of pressure on it

Thank you for this much needed update!!
Yang Yang Aditya (4 months 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!

Deepansh Bhatia (4 months ago)
So is the phone splash resistant, at least? Will it hold against minor water splashes without any damage?
Deepansh Bhatia (4 months 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 (4 months 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.
Oviyenessh Sithasivam (4 months ago)
sorry to bother but are u gonna do any sort of giveaway for this christmas??
Elin Alexandrov (4 months 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 (4 months 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 (4 months 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.

Hitesh Gavini (4 months ago)
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 (3 months 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 (4 months ago)
I remembermy Find 5 having no water resistance certifications, but a touchscreen that did work in water for some reason.
Freedom Evans (4 months 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.

Great. Could you do this same test with a few flagships with water resistance, like LG V30, Mate 10 Pro, Pixel 2 XL etc.

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.
Undercovermc (4 months ago)
thatonepersonyoulove I'm sure the 5T is a great phone, especially at its relatively low price. My only point is that people shouldn't make false claims and treat it like it's waterproof because that could end in disaster lol.

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
Grobee (2 months ago)
I think that you are addicted to your phone. Dude enjoy the shower without that damn thing
Lionel Lim (4 months 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_ (4 months 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 (4 months 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
