    With users like this who needs Samsung, Apple's own users will make a non issue (bending iphones) which are statistically insignificant right now into a major issue with major publishers of news outlets using only macrumors as their examples and no where else . lol: so toxic

    I put mine through a pipe bender and it bent it quite nicely.

    I don't know how bending iPhones is a non-issue. I hope you don't come complaining if your iPhone bends, because it is not an issue that your device you spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on bends.

    Yeah,you people who've just spent many hundreds of dollars on bendy phones and then had the temerity to mention it should hang your heads. Shame on you.

    EDIT: what stuffradio just said.

    Even the headline says "some iphone users". I think it's a perfectly valid concern, regardless of how big an issue it is. It's happening. It's news. The fact that crappy news outlets use MacRumors as their one and only source is irrelevant. It only serves to highlight that they're crappy places to go for new...

    I agree.

    People were looking for a new gate.

    And now people were able to manufacture a bs one.

    Weather its true or not, it got enough attention to make the average person worried.

    People really should stop posting in that thread. Its not a legit concern and its just assisting in negative unfair publicity.

    Its not a valid concern but the fact that people keep treating it as such is what is annoying.

    Shame on anyone for pointing it out. Samsung will get the upper hand. Plastic might be cheap, but it won't bend permanently. :rolleyes:

    It's 3 people out of how many . it's statistically insignificant right now so it is a non issue. Stop hoping it is one

    I don't have the six plus so it doesn't matter to me but, if they're bending just from being in someone's pocket without an inordinate amount of force being applied, that is an issue.

    The thinner these phones(all phones, not just Apple) get, the more of an issue this is going to become.

    It is an issue that 3 people experienced (and who knows if others haven't noticed it yet). From all reports they didn't do anything excessive, so why should we pretend it didn't happen?

    It only bends when you put it in your pants pockets.

    Stop putting it in your ****ing pants pockets!

    To be fair, 9,000,000 of those were smuggled into China yesterday, and the owners of those phones are probably reporting their problems on a different forum.

    Count down until a ton of threads show up from all the OCD folk around here who bought 6+ are telling how they rushed back to apple to return them based on a couple reports.


    Are you really serious right now?? No, really?

    No thats illogical.

    We DONT have that conclusion yet.

    What do you not comprehend about NON ISSUE and NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT?

    I'm the opposite of hoping it's an issue, but if it is an issue, we shouldn't try giving Apple a pass like you want to do.

    You can put it in your pockets tho lol. Millions of people do and nothing bad happened.

    You coming to conclusions that don't exist.

    They're aren't reporting problems because its not a common thing.

    You people need to go watch a horror movie or something if you want to get those types of kicks.

    Nothing horrendous is happening. Its just doomsday mentality on your parts.

    Its illogical.

    If it's just 3-4 it's an issue for the people but not for the product. It becomes an issue for the product of the rate nears a typical product failure or manufacturing rate which the industry standard is between 4-8%

    Please don't quote statistics or math to these people.

    Their only interest is to imagine a worst-case-doomsday-scenario, and work back from that, trying to make it real and tie together clues to matriculate the insanity in their head.

    Its pretty much the same as what people who watch a lot of FOX NEWS like to do and about the world ending...

    Same exact bs.

    I don't know if you are being sarcastic or not. But where would you like us to put our phones if we don't put them in our pockets. Not everyone wears jackets or sweaters all the time to be able to put it in other pockets. No one is gonna carry their ph be around constantly in their hands.

    The reporting of the bending issue should be as follows:

    Common Sense and Physics dictates large, slim smartphones (or anything else) could bend if kept in a snug pants pocket where bending pressure will be put on it. If you are one of those few who did not think about that prior to your phone bending, now you know. For the rest of us, continue to use common sense.

    And for those that think this is limited to Apple's new larger iPhone, there are similar posts out there for the larger competitor phones.
