The idea of the video, presumably, is to show that relatively little pressure (nothing but an average guy's bare hands) is needed to significantly bend the phone.uhm yeah.. like everyone who has an iphone 6 plus will purposely bend their phone.
Exactly. You can see his hands slightly shaking while attempting to bend the phone. That is some significant force/pressure being done to the phone, so of course it will bend.I'm so confused by the reactions to this video. He's bending the **** out of it and, of course, it bends. If you are generating that much force on your phone around a centralized pivot point while just keeping the phone in your baggy pants then there is something wrong with your pants, not the phone.
oh yeah.. it was very little pressure that was put on that phone.. maybe i was just imagining things. sorry.The idea of the video, presumably, is to show that relatively little pressure (nothing but an average guy's bare hands) is needed to significantly bend the phone.
In some ways this is a better test than using a calibrated machine, because that will give numbers that are meaningless to the average Joe.
A few claims already that it bent in people's front pockets and a lot of claims of BS. It seems it is less BS and more actual possibility. Only time will really tell if this is truly an issue in standard use. I would consider front pocket to be a pretty standard place people keep their phone, so if it is an issue, we will see more complaints over time.
All that aside I was rather amazed that the screen didn't crack. That glass had a pretty good arch going lol.
