iPhone 6 Plus bends in your pocket, Note 3 doesn’t
Just weeks in after the release of the new iPhones, a problem is being reported that the new iPhones, especially the iPhone 6 Plus due to its large size, significantly bend easily, destroying the form of the smartphone.
This is not a rare case scenario as a lot of users have been using the hashtag #BendGate to spark discussion, and it goes to tell that the iPhone 6 Plus bends even when it is just sitting inside your pocket for a long time.
Some will defend that even older iPhones and most smartphones will bend if given enough pressure (Unbox Therapy retweeted bent Apple products today) and some will say that if only Apple didn’t make the device so thin, the company could have ended up making a better phone with no protruding camera hump, better battery life & a more solid build quality.
The videos above confirms the reports, showing how easy it is to bend, and to confirm that this issue is not exclusive to the iPhone 6 Plus, Unbox Therapy also tries to bend the Note 3 to which it does bend, but it returns back to its original form without breaking.
