    I was getting out of my car and the darn thing slipped out of my hand somehow. This thing is so slippery!

    Anyway, I scuffed a corner, but it's still not bent.

    Just wanted to let everyone know that the iPhone 6 is strong enough to survive a fall onto pavement and still not bend.

    Thank you.

    Im going without a case too. Seems like a durable phone. Definitely doesn't scuff as easily as the i5!

    It's not bent. I put a ruler on each side. Still straight.

    Post a picture taken directly from the side, with the phone on a hard surface.

    How can you be sure your ruler is not bent? Try laser beam, it's guaranteed to be straight.

    i dropped my 6 Plus with the Kavaj Tokyo leather case attached to it. Fell face first onto the marble floor and braced myself for the worst since the case has very minimal lip and not very protective. Came away without a single shatter or scratch. What are the odds the inside got damaged cause of the shock of the drop?

    I actually don't think the damage is that bad considering it fell on cement. Well, at least now you don't have to worry about small scratches.

    Really OP? In that head of yours, you actually think a drop will cause a bend?:rolleyes:

    No wobbles. It's straight. I can't believe that people don't believe a NON-BEND claim. It's not bent. I checked it because I was worried that it might have bent from the fall. Remarkably it's fine.

    There is very obvious bending on the right side of the phone... the right side is slightly lifted from the table. Sorry dude.

    people are coming to report that their phone didn't bend from a DROP? A bend should be the least of your worries if you dropped it on pavement :rolleyes:

    The damage isn't too bad. Put a case on it if you want to cover it up. Easy enough.

    It's clearly not bent. Completely straight in the photo.
