Lenovo’s Legion Phone Duel 2 is one of the weirdest designs we’ve seen in a long time, even for a gaming phone. With two fans mounted on the back and a crazy, mechanized front-facing camera built into the power button, it is certainly an eye-catching device. Unfortunately for Lenovo, recent gaming phones have gained a reputation for being fragile in your hands, and Duel 2 continues that trend.
As always, it’s the bend test where a phone’s durability is pushed to the edge, and Duel 2 does not last long. Even compared to some of Zack’s other broken devices, the slightest pressure causes it to break into two parts along the antenna lines. There is no flexibility here – it just clicks and breaks the plastic antennas in two halves. Another tap on the other side of the phone, and Duel 2 cracks into three separate parts.
It’s a shame to see it barely last through a single flex, given the unique design shown. Duel 2 is on the thicker side for modern smartphones, but in this case, the extra bulk fails to prevent it from snapping like a twig. Check out the video posted above for a full overview (literally).
