Bro why you grouping the 6 with the 6+?
The 6 is in a league of its own. It's not vulnerable to bendgate.
If any of those who have said yes to bent phone cant respond here or post a picture, your vote will be deemed a fake.
Equally you should require pictures for unbent votes ... no reason to trust them more. But in practice you'll never be able to measure the proportion of bent ones, you will just be able to list how many documented cases have been posted.
the ISSUE is a bent phone, a person will a straight phone won't even bother, a bent phone person has an issue which needs fixing. a person will never say thier phone is straight because thats whats expected. I am asking people to post pictures of thier unexpected phones.
a Person with bent phone would never vote No because he/she just spent 200+ on their device
I noticed my 6+ was bent yesterday near the bottom volume button. I determined this by lying the 6+ on its face on a table and pressing on each of the four corners one by one. The wobble was quite apparent. I've since bent it back into place (approximately anyway), so I don't have pictures.
I have to say, I'm quite surprised and disappointed by this. Of all the R&D/testing Apple performs on their phones, I would have expected Apple to find and remedy this before launch. Real world usage testing would have produced the amount of bend that occurred in my 6+. I've had my 6+ in my back pocket when walking, as there's more room for it than in my front pocket, and I don't sit on it, so I'm not sure how I produced the bending.
It took very little force to bend it back into shape the videos online produce a much larger bend than what occurred in my phone, so that's why more force was apparently needed.
As someone who's had every iteration of the iPhone and never had bending issues before (I'm gentle on my tech), the 6+ bending issue is disappointing. Apple should have reinforced the weak area, made the phone thicker, or used a different metal or alloy, such as aircraft grade 7075-T6 aluminum.
As for users suggesting that a case will remedy the bending issues: 1. You should be able to use your phone in normal daily use and not have it bend; period. 2. A case should not be required to provide normal structural rigidity (see point #1). 3. A case outside of the full size OtterBox would still likely bend to a certain degree, allowing your phone to bend slightly as well.
Public PSA: If you sit on your iPhone in your back pocket, it will increase it's chances of getting bent.
And this isn't an issue exclusive to the iPhone.
