    Hey everyone. I am new to iPhone (I have switched from android) and I love my new iPhone 6 Plus. My question is this. I have seen so many things online about the phone bending in people's pockets. I have mine in a case and carry it around in my front pocket at times during the day. Surly this won't hurt the phone... but I wanted to know from those of you who have experience with iPhones.... should I not put it in my front pocket when I am walking around or is this something that has been blown out of proportion??? Sorry.. I know that this bend issue is old news... just couldn't find any info on if the front pocket was safe to carry the phone around in.

    I carry mine in my pockets and mine is not bent. I use an Apple Leather Case some of the time, but mostly it goes case-less.

    Great! That's a relief to hear.. I have mine is a Speck Candyshell Grip Case. Thanks for giving me some peace of mind.

    To give you some added peace of mind, I've had my 6+ since December with no case and carry it only in my front pocket.

    I just checked by placing it face down on my desk and zero wobble. Same with the phone on its back with the camera hanging over the edge.

    I really don't understand what people were doing to bend their phones. Not saying people are lying, I iust can't imagine how this happens.

    Thanks for the reply... I really don't understand that either.. I figured that it would be fine putting it in the front pocket.. Apple has to have better sense than to build a phone that would bend in someones front pocket. Just needed some piece of mind because I didn't want to mess up a wonderful phone.

    I also carry my phone in my front pocket all the time, with no case. My phone is fine and yours should be too.

    I'm surprised this is still talked about.

    It's a non-issue. I carry my naked 6+ in my front left pocket all day every day. Just exercise common sense when you sit down (occasionally, I'll shift it at a slight angle if my pants are a tighter fit so the phone isn't fighting the bend of my body -- but you'd be inclined to do that anyway, it'd be uncomfortable otherwise) and don't rest super heavy things against it when you carry them. Basically, the no-brainer kinds of things you'd do anyway.

    It's not a non-issue. I got my launch day and had it in loose chinos the next day and it is very slightly bent in the upper left corner. When I put it face down there is a wobble. It's very hard to see but it is there. i do not sit down with it in my pocket anymore.

    Sitting on any phone risks damage. I only ever have it in my front pocket.
