    I've yet to see a single reported instance on this forum of an iPhone 6 with a WHITE front bending - It is only the space gray iPhone bending! Could it be the durability of the material used? I'm assuming the gray is a basic aluminum, and I'd assume silver and gold are less malleable materials

    Nah, the bender man demonstrated it on a Gold 6+ when it bent as easily as a hot knife through butter.

    Except I don't see my tendons standing out on my hands when I slice hot butter.

    no phone should be bent with 23lb of force... Next you know, Apple will make iPhone out of paper to make it as thin as possible.

    I've seen a bent gold 6+ in person, so I don't think there's anything to do with the color.

    It is possible that the extra weight of the space gray paint, or the way that it dries when painted, places undue stress on the phone which causes the auto-bending.

    The second possibility is that there is something they are not disclosing when they mention "space" in the color description. Is it possible that they harvested some space substance either from an asteroid that crashed or something that they got from some other non-conventional means? Maybe that "space" material creates a temporal and structural shift in the aluminum substrate when it is exposed to the rubbing of a person's jeans.
