It is usually not recommended to have a moving part or a motorized mechanism on a smartphone because it raises concerns about the durability of the device. Oppo Find X is no different, as can be seen in a video of a famous YouTuber Zack on his channel JerryRigEverything.
He carries out his usual durability test and it is sad to say that the Find X is very delicate and fragile.
This was not to be expected because other telephones with a screenless screen and a thin profile with Glass at the front and back have successfully passed the bending test (Vivo Nex S is a recent example).
The Find X was much more fragile than Zack had expected, because he bend quite easily. He said that 90% of the flagships he tested is resistant to his bend test, but Find X failed miserably
The metal frame around the device can withstand some bending, but glass on the front and back can be easily shattered. He further shows that the motorized part is not very solid, because it moves a little and there is a lot of space for the dust to get into it.
Zack performed a scratch test using 10 mineral-based plectra of different hardness (based on Mohs scale) to see how scratch-resistant the glass on Find X is. The device performed well in this test when the scratches began to show a level 6 choice, which is common for phones that belong to Gorilla Glass 5.
In the fire test X reacted in the way most Amoled Panels do. Usually, AMOLED panels last between 10 and 15 seconds in this test and found the search X screen 14 seconds before the pixels began to die. Please note that LCD screens usually recover from the burns (recover the color), but AMOLED panels do not.
So if you're on the market to buy a new phone and want something sustainable, you might want to skip Oppo Find X, because it would take much more care than competing flagships.
