... and I feel sort of idiotic.

In some of the discussions about the bending iPhone 6, I saw there were two factions: people who thought it was reasonable to leave an electronic device in your back pocket at all times (including when sitting) and those of us who have always made it a practice to remove the phone when sitting. To me, the latter seems to be basic common sense, that you would never apply that kind of pressure to a sensitive electronic device but others disagree that such a device should be designed with that sort of "usage" in mind.

I thought maybe I'm missing something and I should give it a try myself. So yesterday and today, I've been leaving my iPhone 4s in my back pocket, even while sitting and you know what?

It's freaking uncomfortable. It's quite literally a pain in the ___ (well, the side of my ___ to be precise.) I'm not sure how or why people justify doing this. It's a real annoyance. Do people really do this with their phone?

Think I'll go back to removing it when I sit and stop trying to understand why anyone would do such a silly thing. :D

Umm, the 6 Plus models were being bent in the front pocket, not sitting on them in the back pocket.

Source?

Especially one that we know for 100% certainty that they weren't just an idiot and sat on it while it was in their back pocket and claimed "Oh noes! I mean ummm... yeaaaah... it was in my... front pocket... that's right..."

Some people like to have their wallet all times on his back, even it is too big

I also don't understand why, but there is people that like to keep things on their back.

I have seen some people use their ipads on the back like the one from the photo, maybe that is the way to carry the iphone 6 +
