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?
Oppo Find X: yay or nay?
Yep! I am throwing money at the screen right now!
Maybe... I'd like to know how robust that mechanism is first
Meh. It's eye candy, but I'm not interested

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

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

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.

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,
