Oppo Find X: yay or nay?

Oppo Find X: yay or nay?
Oppo is a brand that is not very well-known in the Western markets, but it's pretty big in its homeland of China. Also, it's OnePlus' sister company and they do share a lot of resources. So, if you haven't heard of Oppo before, know that it shares a lot with OnePlus.

The company just came out with its latest flagship — the Find X. With almost no bezel and absolutely no notch to speak of, the phone has a cool mechanical slide-out mechanism that stores its cameras and the face-scanning sensors. The internals? They are flagship material through and through — a Snapdragon 845 processor, 8 GB of RAM, a 20 MP main camera and a highly-detailed 25 MP selfie camera. Yeah, the Oppo Find X is not toying around.

In an exciting plot twist, Oppo said it's planning to bring the Find X to the USA and even hinted at a carrier deal, which could mean being able to pick it up for monthly payments.

That sliding mechanism is cool, for sure... but does it inspire enough confidence to drop cash on this new flagship?

It's already collecting dusts near the open side of the slide.

And it needs to pop up every time you want to unlock the phone. That motor will be broken in a few months.

The vivo nex is still better. Has an under display fingerprint scanner and headphone jack.

And a terrible camera. Unless we see a head to head comparison, you can't tell which device is better. But my bet is definitely on Oppo.

Too many steps and delay to unlock phone. How can I use it with a case? Oppo known that they soon to drop update Android OS! I also doubt about mechanism and battery life ( due to motor and FaceID eat more battery )

Love the innovation and it is more elegant than the Vivo Nex. However it's even less practical having every function reliant on the mechanism. Would've lessen the burden if there was finger scanner. Unlocking takes about 20 usage a day for some people. Mechanical issues is a real issue here.

Someone should implement the Oppo N1 camera solution again which is way more functional than the Find X gimmick.

Oppo should bring back the N series.

Nice phone but the Nex is more practical.

It's a very cool idea, and if you have to make a bezeless design, then you either accept a tine bit of bezels, like the Galaxy S9/S9+ or you use an alternative solution like the one proposed here. You do not take the worst of both worlds and compromise everything with a notch,

Liking the fact that there's no fps. Hiding the camera away when not in use is a welcome idea.

Coming from an iPhone owner, this an amazing accomplishment.
