As many know, Apple, a company usually known for its reliable products, has made quite a quality oversight. The topic of iPhone 6 Plus bending has quickly risen in social media. And why wouldn’t it? An iPhone 6 Plus, with upgrade eligibility, is $299.99. To have such an expensive device be bent with the gentle pressure of a front pocket seems insane. However, the negative publicity has blown-up the issue to be much more that it really should be.
This video here shows that with pressure the phone does bend. Obviously, this isn’t a typical situation. Realistically this is much more pressure than would ever be applied. This is demonstrated when he tries to bend the phone back – the screen cracks.
If you believe that you need to protect your iPhone 6 Plus, consider buying a case, investing in insurance, or just putting the device in your pocket top-down.
