Doesn't bend

I guess it's not the thickness and the ones bending are anomalies

Guess the iPhone 6's smaller size helps to resist bending more than the 6+?

The 6 Plus bends more easily because the distance between the weak spot (fulcrum) and edges (lever) is greater than the 6. You are able to apply more force to the weak spot. And it will break. Simple physics of fulcrums and levers.

but the argument has been the thickness and the construction, that shouldnt matter then when the length is just 1 inch longer. the result wouldnt be that drastic...

the distance in terms of science is negligible 0.7 inches especially when the iPhone 5S bends easier than the guy doing the bending in the video


plus the 6 is actually thinner
