    Isn't it odd that the consumer reports bend test said the 6 plus was less bendable than the 6?

    Just anecdotal evidence seems to suggest most of the bent phones are 6 pluses.

    I recall one of the complaints about the Consumer Reports test was that it tested bendability at the center of the phones, and not at the purported weak point - the volume buttons.

    The 6 Minus would presumably be easier to bend at the center simply because the overall device is thinner, and therefore not as strong as the 6 Plus. But in practice, the 6 Plus is also considerably longer, allowing for more leverage in real-world situations.

    Of course, it could all be a hoax, and that would be the simplest explanation for the discrepancy.

    I am yet to read a report of a bent 6 but have seen plenty of 6 Plus's.

    My 6 is still dead straight and its been in a tight pocket a lot of the time. I am beginning to doubt the legitimacy of many of these claims.

    Saw the "6 minus" and stopped reading instantly.
