    I tell them that isn't a bent iPhone in my front pocket... I'm just happen to see them.

    I just tell them apple attempted to join the curved display industry like some of the other manufacturers. Maybe they will join the curved display game with TVs too.

    Seems to be the ice breaker these days to start a conversation with a stranger.

    I've had a few people ask me that some serious and some snarky. I just so no, I don't really don't expect it to bend. Pretty straight forward.

    People don't ask me that.

    1. I don't hang around douche bags who have nothing better to do.
    2. I don't hang around anyone, for that matter.


    In the off chance someone was around and DID ask me that- I would look them square in the eye and call them a dumbass while shaking my head, then walk away. I don't care where I'd be or who was around because I believe in being outspoken and calling **** like I see it.

    My response?

    What kind of phone do you have?
    Do you mind if I try and bend it?

    All phones will bend if you're not careful. Physics.

    When they ask "is your iphone bent?" I simply say "No, I'm just happy to see you."

    The correct response would depend on if my iPhone is bent or not.

    Are you aware that there are people in this world that have a severe medical condition which causes them to be that way? My mother for instance is one of those people. She is a truck driver that has bad knees and a bad back from driving the truck but you probably do not care about that case either. Oh well I am not one of those people I am 6'4" 245lbs and I exercise every day. I would love to see you say something like to my mother in front of me. Probably never happen though you are probably just an internet tough guy. I doubt very seriously you would say that to someones face. Just my thought.What do you think. Oh I am sorry you probably do not have a brain. I on the other hand will be happy to buy you a plane ticket to come here and see if you have the nerve to say that to someone I know.

    Holy **** this is said to me every few seconds at school. I say the same thing every time
    "No!!! Only 9 have bent and this is not a 6 plus!"
    Then when they say "Can I bend it" I say "Piss off" or "No but you can go **** yourself though"
    It's annoying how many ****ing times people ask this of me.

    My mom said something to me, her and my dad have droids. I said it was blown out of proportion because of social media. My dad then confirms what I say and says "yeah there was only 9 reported to Apple and there were 10 million iPhones sold the first weekend." That's usually what I come back and say. Unfortunately most people in my family and my friends all have android phones and don't like iPhones even though they've never used one. I have flip flopped and ultimately decided iOS was best for me.

    That's the first question I get.

    I just tell them my phone is fine and that yes, I put it in my pocket daily.

    I say, "Yes! I love the flexibility the iPhone 6 Plus provides! I like to fold the top of the device over my hand for stability." :D
