    Really.

    I was one of the bendgate deniers but now after pretty much full year of use my iPhone 6 is slightly bent. It's almost unnoticeable but the bend is there. First I noticed a slight dent near the volume button and then started observing more closely. It's very slightly bent. Damn. :D

    Guess it's time to get 6S or live one more year with bent iPhone.

    Apple didn't make their new iPhone thicker on a whim. The bending issue was real.

    If you don't mind using your bent iphone 6 for another year then don't upgrade. Not much point upgrading if your iphone 6 works fine and does what you need.

    Welcome to the real world buddy, lol. iPhone 6 is the worst iPhone they ever made, but they acknowledged and fixed their problems with the 6s.

    It is physics you but enough stress on something, eventually it will bend. Guess what this year's phone will bend to, it may be harder to do it, but it is possible that it will.

    Is it really bent or are you just trying to justify the 6s? :p

    According to many here, bending iPhones is not real and just a rumor!

    Oh just go back to around this time last year. MANY here fought and fought that the phone was perfectly fine and designed the way Apple intended. If you bent it through normal use, it was your fault. Apple wouldn't design a weak phone. Apple had no reason to make it stronger.

    They made it thicker due to 3D Touch.

    My best friend had a very solid case for him and his wife, both iPhone 6 were bent. He went to the store, they exchange his only, for his wife's phone they offered 299 replacement. I told him to ask Apple to bring money back home from offshores, so he went to another store and they exchange his son's no problem. The only problem they demanded for the appointment, so he drove twice to the second store.
    Just please be polite at the store.

    Are we talking about the one year old iPhone that hit news September 2014 with the bendgate? Yep.... I think everyone is aware of that . Ask unbox therapy for that one .

    More accurately, "Apple didn't make their new iPhone out of 7000 Series aluminum on a whim"

    That doesn't make any sense.

    Are you really trying to start up the conversation again? Fine, I'll bite.

    If you do something to bend your iPhone6 it will bend, if you don't then it will not bend.

    But you can do the same "something" to other phones (and likely the upcoming 6S) and it won't bend. So I don't get your point other than the iPhone 6 is weak. But this is known by now.

    The 3D Touch screen is twice as heavy as the previous screen. I'm not sure if that is attributable to the thickness increase, but it probably is as well. But the increase is so negligible you can probably still use the same case from your 6 on the 6S.

    You really think that is necessary after all this time and evidence out there? Including Apple marketing "the strongest iPhone yet" now with the 6S?
