Watch The Oppo Finder (World’s Thinnest Smartphone) Pound Nails Into A Board Without Breaking A Sweat [Video]


The Oppo Finder may not hold the title of the world’s thinnest smartphone for very much longer — the leaked ZTE Athena could beat it by mere .03mm — but for now, it’s enjoying its 15 minutes of fame. The smartphone can be found making appearances around the net as the subject of the face cringing “nail stress test.”

If you were thinking a 6.65mm thin smartphone would snap in half inside your skinny jeans — you’d be wrong. Well, at least when it comes to the Finder. The uber-thin device pounded a handful of nails into a 2×4, without a scratch, nick, or crack. See for yourself below.

I guess if the whole “world’s thinnest smartphone” doesn’t pan out for Oppo, I guess they could always go with “the world’s toughest smartphone under 6.65mm.” The device is currently available in China for $393 straight up. The little fella packs a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, dual-core A15 processor, 1GB of RAM and runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Not too shabby, right?

  1. My GS3 had to turn away from this.

    1. I tried this with my awesome HTC Evo 4G LTE…now I have a nice key chain holder!.Awesome video.

  2. will this be available in the US ?

    1. Nope :/ unless you import.

      1. does it run on 2g or 3g ?

  3. I don’t think this will make it to market. I see an Apple injunction coming, they just got a patent for hammering nails with a smartphone. I assume it is covered in that new patent they got.

    1. Ask a Apple person if there is a app for that (hammering nails).

    2. they may try to patent the thin phones if the rumors of the icrap5 are true.

    3. I bet you they have no idea about Apple patent yet, that`s why they`re showing their video.

    4. I’m picking up your android fan boy sarcasm. iOS has been pounding nails in boards for 100s of years, you’re just mad that Android couldn’t do it til now.

      And I don’t know if you’ve heard of a man that goes by the user name iKing but but he’s sort of a big deal around here. In the words of iKing it’s all about the apps and Android has less apps and I’ll repeat that until you get it.

      This is a stolen idea that iOS himself thought of long ago and this phone deserves an injection if I ever saw it.

      1. Lol to everyone who voted down to this.

  4. I guess if you are working on a roof and happen to drop your hammer you can just whip out your phone and keep on working.

  5. These “phone hammer” video’s are so misleading… They are using super soft wood, that you can push a nail in with your fingers. Show me the same thing with some redwood.

    1. The way he was beating the shit out of that nail I dont think it’s soft wood or that you could push it in with your finger.

    2. Let’s see a video of you using your phone to hammer a nail into the same board.

      1. No thanks. Also, if you pay attention, when he hammers with the phone, he is using minimal force. If you use enough force, that screen will crack, period.

  6. thats the sexiest iPhone I’ve ever seen

  7. A Pounds per square inch would be a better test of durability, to actually get a number of pounds it will take to crack. These “phone hammer” video’s are made by tards.

  8. Bullshit, I might believe if the phone was turned on, but anyone can have a dummy phone made of solid glass or perspex and do this. You will notice at no stage is it turned on until the end then a tricky con to pretend to turn it on and cut to another phone.

  9. Dammit Chavez, would you quit pulling the bait and switch on the pictures of the girls for your articles? :-l

    1. 99% of the male population clicked play for one reason.

      1. I even checked a few points in the video just to be sure

    2. You were clicking to see the phone get pounded…. right? O_o

      1. What phone? ;-)

  10. I wish they had done it all in one shot… they could have easily swapped out phones at the end

  11. Uh… that’s not a 2×4. But that’s a durable phone.

    1. If it’s wood, and I can pick it up and slam someone with it — it’s a 2×4 regardless of the dimensions.


  12. note how he never uses the middle of the screen (the weakest point)

    1. Because it’s not impressive enough that *any* area of a smartphone phone can pound a nail into a 2×4 without taking a few scuffs and scratches…

      1. Lol.. I knew there was going to be at least one person who wasn’t impressed. xD

      2. Impressive indeed.
        It was damaged on the edge though.

  13. Holly crap. I want one. Might just become a party favorite.
    White pine is not a soft wood, have made lots of things from it.

  14. That’s a 1×6. Learn you wood or hand over your man-card.

    1. Oh, I KNOW my wood…

      1. Yea…. he knows his wood! No doubts there. And man card?? I don’t believe he received his in the mail yet

    2. ****he said “learn your wood!!!” x-)

  15. Not a bad looking phone. I like how its strong. Good for them

  16. Looks like a solid phone! BUT I can’t deal with that camera sticking out that keeps the phone from sitting flat. Oh, and it looks too much like an iPhone.

  17. where can i buy one ?? and does it work on verizon?

  18. can you hammer a 9″ nail through a board with your penis?

    no, but my smartphone can.

    (apologies to Real Genius).

  19. I wonder if apple has patented the signal frying antenna death touch from a few years back. Because that bezel has antenna gate written all over it…
