Why doesn't someone do a "real" bend test?

Why is everyone just applying pressure to the middle of the phone and focusing that pressure until the iPhone bends?

Realistically though, when you put it in your pocket, it's not raised up 1" on either side and your leg doesn't come to a point directly in the center of the iPhone.

All these tests are being done the wrong way. I wanna see someone put the iPhone 6 in their pocket (with skinny pants on) and keep it there for a prolonged period of time to see if placing the iPhone in your pocket while it's resting between your soft leg and your pants will make it bend like people are claiming.

By focusing hundreds of pounds of pressure to the center of the iPhone while it's propped up is not realistic at all... of course it's going to bend if you do that! The phones made out of plastic even bend (but plastic has the tendency to bounce back to the original shape whereas metal will usually stay bent).

Why are we still concerning ourselves with it? Better yet, instead of asking why someone hasn't done a "real" bend test, maybe you should just do your own?

There's plenty of videos of these pocket tests and the 6 didn't bend. Get over it
