World's thinnest smartphone might also be the world's toughest

The world's thinnest smartphone isn't made by Apple or Samsung. No, it's actually made by Chinese company Oppo. With a thickness of 6.65mm, nobody (believe me, nobody) was expecting it to double as a hammer. Watch as one guy pounds some nails into a wooden board with the Oppo Finder without so much as a dent.

Armed with a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display (960x540), 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 16GB of internal storage, 1GB of RAM, 8-megapixel rear camera, 1.3-megapixel front cam and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the Oppo is a pretty generic Android smartphone on paper.

Those brave enough to dive a little deeper will see that it's ultra-tough. Tough enough to be the handyman's hammer of choice, even. In the video below, you'll the Oppo Finder slam nails from its front display, metal back and sides, and come out unscathed.

How many of you out there can whip out your smartphone and start pounding nails into boards without cringing? I wouldn't bet on on there being many of ya.

For $393, the Oppo Finder isn't cheap. For the world's thinnest phone, the Oppo Finder looks alright, but then again, it also achieves that thin profile by not having a 3.5mm headphone jack. Decisions, decisions.
