There is no doubt that OnePlus 5T is a very worthwhile phone to buy. But before buy it, we have a question: how does it workmanship? Here we disassemble an Oneplus 5T to explore its internal structure and workmanship
Teardown is what we do! Follow us on Facebook for the latest repair news.
Uncover the graphite thermal stickers on the back of the motherboard, we found that the bare chip is also covered with thermal grease, some metal shield is also covered with a layer of thermal copper.
What leaves me the deepest impression on the OnePlus 5T’s internal design is its excellent dustproof and water resistant capabilities. Although the OnePlus 5T hasn’t stressed its water resistant capability in its introduction, the phone actually has better water resistant capability than those which emphasize publically their good water resistant capability. Nearly all bare circuits have been covered with glue, and the parts around the connectors are firmly sealed. Most components with ports are designed with rubber seal. Therefore, I think that the OnePlus 5T can be immersed in the water for a short time and it can still work well. The phone’s body hasn’t been sealed by good glue and no seal is found in SIM card tray. That’s the OnePlus 5T’s deficiency in water resistant aspect compared with real water resistant smartphones.
The OnePlus 5T’s motherboard has high integration level, although not the top-level. The smartphone has good thermal design. Lots of conductive thermal grease, cooling copper sheets and graphite thermal stickers have been applied. Fingerprint reader module’s connectors have been fixed by back case and the front camera’s connectors have been fixed by conductive sticker. Other connectors are fixed by metal plate. Such design can effectively prevent components from falling off so as to avoid malfunction of components.
Generally speaking, the OnePlus 5T is a phone with excellent internal design. In my opinion, such internal design makes the phone become much competitive in the phone market with regard to its price.
