I agree it was blown way out of proportions, but it was still very interesting when JayZTwoCents noted that he had bent his 6 (not 6+) just through daily use (not trying to bend it); and he made careful note to say that he doesn't really keep it in his pocket -- i.e. its bends easily, albeit it was a very negligible bend, but apparently still enough to pop the screen out a bit. 

 

/Not saying this wouldn't happen with other phones / #bendgate is a serious issue; just that its interesting to see that it is possible for it to bend during light use. 

although I think he said it bent from him dropping it a few times, I would rather have it bend slightly and be able to bend it back than to have it not bend and have the shock go into the glass and break it.

I'd really suggest you look back at Android's past if you genuinely believe that. 

 

 

Android ain't a phone. You comparing a phone to an OS... Anyway, we're talking flash memory. Any phone could have used this. I mean even Samsung used it in their SSD.

 

But does it suck ? Yeah. If it's a real problem, I hope they fix it. If not, I guess if you have problems you can just take it to a genuis bar to have it swap or something...

 

 

That's just not true in any way at all...

 

Android came from being nothing in 2008 to owning 80% of the phone market. I think that speaks for itself 

 

hahahahaha yeah never suffers from bad battery life, force closes, crashing, updates that take months to roll out and leave users in a maker lottery for when they will get theres, security issuses..........

 

 

 

nice to to see the new builder has arrived banging the apple drum. so let me get this straight because your phone is ok there is no issue? right

apple recalls are easy if you live by a store. I dont. i live 40 min away from a store...thats in a major city so is a bithsc to get to. or i can send it in and wait a week+ joy and all this from a device that costs nearly  £800 off contract and £200 more than most if its rivals.  i expect more from apple than what seams to have been them cutting corners left and right

 

as for bendgate....i dont think its over. jay from jayztwocents has commented on his 6 stating that he has bent it already from normal day to day use....

 

 

as for this issue if its just a update fix then who cares really if not.....yet more woes for apple

I've owned the first android phone to ever come out.... no history to read there.

1. Android used to be much worse than iOS. 

2. Anrdoid has taken from iOS as much as iOS has taken from android.

3. Jailbreaking is damn close to having a custom rom. And much better than rooting on android.

1. We live in the present and when iOS was better than android, that was before 2010

2. Apples "innovative" plan is basically recreating iOS to look exactly like android now... so no iOS has copied anroids more now

3. I've done both and rooting is 10 times better than jailbreaking. Don't know how you got that idea

Yeah, selling phones for $0.99 will do that.

If you genuinely believe Android was perfect when it first came out.....I....I really don't know how to respond to that since Android was a mess when it was first released. I'm not saying ios was perfect when it was first launched; as it was by no means, but claiming that Android didn't have its rough patches is just ludicrous.

lol $0.99 phones are for people who cannot afford a "cheap" iPhone. That is a useless comment to make. That is like saying, PC's own the market because they have cheaper laptops.. IMO Android phone manufacturers are smart for creating cheap phones for people as a marketing stunt as it's clearly worked. Also, when did I say android was perfect when it first came out.....?

Look at the comment of mine your responded to, it's quite clear that you're implying it didnt have any flaws/major issues. 

 

Regardless, the reason Android phones own the majority of the market share is because they offer the low end cheap/budget devices. Theres also a reason why Apple is the most value company in the world.

The whole selling shit cheap; and offering a reasonably sized phone years before Apple was a big plus :P

 

Plus, Samsung is becoming the new Apple. 

 

P.s. I have nothing against Android; I find Android and iOS to be A LOT more similar than they are different....to the point that I really don't care which os I'm using. Although, I am using a 5s atm since everything else was just too big :/

haha that we can agree on :P

 

I'm not a fan of the iPhones (probably figured that out already though). If one thing I hate about both sides of the pie here is, phones are getting too big! Google/Apple, get your shit together haha

Guys, try to remember that these are just phones.... Not worth fighting about this long every week...

Get what you want and hush.

If someone likes Android let them be, don't try to make them a Apple Fan boy, and vice versa.

But some people attach self worth to their phones, so they need to defend either side.

Which in and of itself is pretty fucking sad when you think about it.

If it can be fixed through a software update it's no problem at all.

 

It didn't work with Samsung so there's no reason to believe that it would with Apple (and I, for one, trust Samsung to fix that type of stuff more than I would Apple). The recall chance is high.
