Groundbreaking, eye-catching, and… structurally flawed. That latter part is not what we expected to hear about the nearly benzelless Oppo Find X smartphone unveiled a month ago, but the motorized mechanism hiding both the front and rear cameras always seemed like a risky design venture.
The phone fared well in most of Zack’s durability tests, thanks to the Gorilla Glass 5 display and aluminum frame. Unfortunately, the phone quickly broke during the classic bend test, even though most flagships come away from the same treatment relatively unscathed.
The pressure the Find X was subjected to during the bend test is similar to what other smartphones have been put through, but over 90% of them have so far been able to withstand such abuse.
And the original price for this phone is $1155 (420,000)
