iPhone 6 plus phones bend in your pocket

Apple’s new flagship phone has been out for a few days now, and there have already been quite a few complaints about the phone bending from normal everyday use. Owners have been saying the device has been bending just from being in their pockets all day.

YouTuber Unbox Therapy decided to see just how possible this is. He applies some pressure to the device and after a few minutes, we see a bent iPhone 6 plus with a cracked screen (which would make any phone owner cringe). Hey, at least it’s still working?

The video has over 19 million views in two days and gives people a warning of just how possible the new iPhone can bend after time has passed.

Unbox Therapy followed up the video by doing the same test on a Galaxy Note 3, he showed the device is much more sturdy and even handled more pressure and while it did bend a bit after applying a lot more force, the phone itself is still pretty solid and undamaged.

Users in a matter of days are already seeing small uneven bends on their device just from having it in their pockets, and Apple hasn’t responded at all to this problem. If you are in the market to upgrade to the new model, you might just want to wait and see what happens.

I for sure wouldn’t be happy spending $749 for a phone just to have it be damaged from being in my pocket. I currently own a Sony Xperia Z2 for 6 months now and have not had any problems due to its sturdiness.
