Recommended Posts

Update 25.09.2014: Thanks @Victorious Secret for linking to this video. Is show a professional bend Test of the iPhone 6 Plus and the Note 3 with a 100 Pounds of force. As shown in the Video, the Note 3 bends 4.5 mm, but goes back to its original shape. The iPhone 6 Plus permanently to 3.25mm. They also tested the iPhone 5, which bend 1.75mm. Due to the metal body, the iPhone will remember the bend shape. The Note 3 went back to shape, due to the use of a more flexible Material, in this case Plastic

 

 

Update: 25.09.2014: Marques Brownles explains why the iPhone 6 bends. Way to go Apple for making it thinner, instead of reinforcing it. This time, they should have really compromised the design for build structure.

Original Post:

Numerous reports have shown up, that the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus may bend, when carrying it in your pockets. It seems as the body has a weakness around the volume keys, that will allow the bend. The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are not the first Apple products that bend. Before there have been reports of  bending iPhone 5 and 5s. There are even reports of the bend iPod touch. 

 

The first reports of a bend iPhone 6 plus showed up on the macrumors forum (link bellow). SInce then the number of bending iPhone Reports have been increasing rapidly. 

 

There is not much else to say about this. iPhone 6 Flex?  :P

ITS A FEATURE

 

Best response ever!

 

 

Hahahaha 

 

Maybe if they werent obsessed with making the iPhone the thinnest phone in the world this wouldnt be an issue.....

 

Argee, I don't like it, when phones are too thin. And they could have used a bigger battery.

The G-Flex was just too damn big. If it was the same size as the G2 than it would have been cool!

To be serious, how prevalent is this. 6 or 6+. Conditions? Causes? Seriously stop wearing tight pants? I don't know. 

 

Personally, mine is straight as an arrow. With a case, but I'm usually wearing a suit so its not like it sees tight pockets anyways. 

 

I'm a little worried at whats causing this, and what the hell people are doing to get it to do that. 

This is also hilarious. 

 

I'm so conflicted.

Okay, no bonus points for you...

 

Basically when the infamous "antennagate" happened, Apple released a series of videos showing how their competitors' phones lose signal if grabbed in a certain way. Was pretty amusing to watch.


Any unknown button should be pressed even number of times.

I swear Apple Died with Jobs.

Yes, because if Jobs were here, he would magically summon the god of machined 6061 aluminum, Bauxitorus, and ask him to stop bending everyones' iPhones.

 

Basically when the infamous "antennagate" happened, Apple released a series of videos showing how their competitors' phones lose signal if grabbed in a certain way. Was pretty amusing to watch.

Yes, because it was entirely true and a great example of the double standards that people hold Apple to.
