    Consumer Reports finds iPhone 6 Plus less bendable than perceived

    “All the phones we tested showed themselves to be pretty tough. The iPhone 6 Plus, the more robust of the new iPhones in our testing, started to deform when we reached 90 pounds of force, and came apart with 110 pounds of force. With those numbers, it slightly outperformed the HTC One (which is largely regarded as a sturdy, solid phone), as well as the smaller iPhone 6, yet underperformed some other smart phones.”

    Only thing is everyone saying the weakest part is where the volume rockers are and consumer reports did their tests in the middle of the phone.
