    So are they now banned from future iPhone releases?

    Not a very productive comment. Did you bother looking at the video before posting?

    Nope, because

    1. They did their test scientifically and produced meaningful data, as opposed to just creating easy clickbait.
    2. Consumer reports doesn't accept free phones or favorable treatment from any company, nor do they go to press events or seek special press treatment. They buy the phones they test. If Apple were to "ban" then, it would mean absolutely zero to their ability to test iPhones and other phones.

    So they admittedly ignored testing the weak point of the 6+ because it would be unfair to Apple. Wonder how much that cost Apple for this biased test.

    Way to show you don't understand how UNbiased testing works.

    Because your follow up comment was so endearing...yeesh. Just keeping it breezy fella :cool:

    Yes I did watch the video. It may be more scientific than a fellow using his thumbs but you can't tell me it wasn't for click bait in its own right!

    ----------

    I +1 your comment for the thought you put into answering my question, but I supposed I should have put /sarcasm towards the end. I was being facetious :eek:

    Since CR is in the business of testing a wide range of consumer products and were responding to emails about their tests yes, I think I can say with some confidence that it isn't simple click bait.
