    All these test a f-in useless and doesnt tell you anything. If it runs ok it work, if it doesnt then “something” is broken, but you will not know exactly what because it will not give you a log.

    utterly useless.

    My brand new oneplus 5 has problems with one of the camera sensors on the rear and will not work at all. So when running the test it just shows black screen and will not finish the test at all. Ok, what does this tell me that I already didnt know? Absolutely nothing.

    How they all boast about android being the tech gurus phone, well its not. Its the wannabes phone that cant do the simplest things like back up full data and restore without a huge hassle even..

    Get an iphone if you want simple and high tech at the same time.
