The second vivo announced its NEX smartphone, many were wondering how the periscope-like camera will fare in the long run. How much beating can it take before it snaps?
Well, vivo was fast to assure that the design has gone through some extensive testing and it can withstand 45 kg of load on top and about 50,000 times of opening and closing. But what about the durability when pushed from the side? The latest durability test video addresses that.
They put eight devices in a circle and place a 40 kg glass on the cameras then a 50 kg ballet dancer goes on top of the glass. That makes a total of 90 kg force shared by eight devices, but when the ballet dancer jumps around, she generates a peak force of 60 kg. And we should also add the 17.5kg glass surface to the equation.
We don't know if the video is official since it's not shared by one of vivo's accounts, but it certainly looks like it. And it's cool either way.
