Like others that have posted here, I've run into a lot of people in the real world who see my iPhone 6 and say "I've heard it bends" or some variation of that. I used to have a full defense ready (1: the initial video was faked, 2: 9 out of 10 million have been reported to bend, 3: consumer reports found it no more bendable than the HTC One or other smartphones, and 4: the opposite of love isn't hate, it's indifference, and the fact that so many people are passionate about the phone means Apple is doing something very right). Of course, most people tune out halfway through that. So now I have a new strategy. 1. They ask if it bends 2. I ask them what phone they have 3. No matter what the response, I then ask "do you mind if I try to bend your phone?" People always immediately respond "no!" They often look somewhat defeated when they realize their phone could also bend. Then, if I want to use a finishing move, I say "the fact that objects bend under force isn't a surprise, it's physics." This actually so far has worked remarkably well, and just wanted to give this option to you guys that are still having to deal with this question as well!
