I really like the iphone 6. I also like Samsung note 4. What troubles me is I just saw this video and it seems the iphone 6 can be easily bent. Are there any reports of iphone 6 and pluses bending from usage or right from the box here in the forums? I might just get one and throw on a case to prevent bending. Is this guy legit or is he just taking it easy on the iphone 6?

He's apparently from around the equator. Doesn't that mean there's probably some time difference at play? He probably signed up years ago and time just caught up.

As an aside, it's interesting that the spelling of his country hasn't quite caught up either. Curious to say the least...

The number of posts relating to "#bendgate" is ridiculous. You have the ones who swear that their phone bent despite it looking straight as a ruler and you have those who say no way despite a picture of the phone looking like a banana. If you have the time/patience, knock back a few shots and wile your hours away reading those threads I posted. If you don't just buy the phone and live.

Don't take it out in Sunlight, it will bend and melt like ice cream. And people here said, "S. Jobs had a vision up through the 6, that nothing was short term since his pass, which I highly doubted.

One of the most ridiculous posts I have ever read on this site.

They don't bend but I hear you can shave with them, I may never know as Verz won't send me my 6 plus.

Nope, first time I am hearing about this "bendgate" issue. Definitely keep us updated on anything you find. I've had my 6+ for 3 weeks now so I am over the 14 day return limit but definitely would be interested in this topic. :rolleyes:

if you dont buy iphone just because the bending issue,you will miss the great experience of using this iphone 6/6plus. the note is one of those ordinary android phone out there you can get easily though,but that is so ordinary phone.
