The Lenovo Legion Phone Duel 2 is just as fragile as the Asus ROG Phone 5

Renowned YouTuber and smartphone breaker JerryRigEverything put the newly-launched Lenovo Legion Phone Duel 2 through the paces. The smartphone was quick to break in his bend test, much like the Asus ROG Phone 5. The area around the antenna lines seems to be the weak point, and gamers would do well to avoid applying pressure to that area.

Gaming smartphones such as the recently launched Asus ROG Phone 5 and Lenovo Legion Phone Duel 2 undoubtedly push the envelope when it comes to raw performance. That, however, comes at a price of structural rigidity, as exhibited by the ROG Phone 5 crumbling under YouTuber JerryRigEverything's bend test. Those expecting the Lenovo Legion Phone Duel 2 to fare any better are in for a disappointment.

Much like other devices that snapped under Zach's bend test, the Lenovo Legion Phone Duel 2 also snapped along its antenna line. The phone has two of those arranged symmetrically, and both are just as fragile. It is hardly surprising, considering that the device's battery has been split into two halves to allow for longevity and faster charging. Interestingly enough, the front glass remains intact throughout the ordeal, quite unlike the ROG Phone 5.

Although the forces applied in a bend test seldom occur outside in the wild, it should warn prospective Lenovo Legion Phone Duel 2 buyers about the hazards of stowing it away in tight pant pockets. Another solution is to put the phone in a sturdy case, although finding one that fits the phone's unorthodox form factor would be a bit of a daunting task
