Apple iPhone 6 Plus Bent

Over the last couple of days the bending problem with iPhone 6 plus has been all over tech blogs. This is no longer news and competitors have been quick to take advantage of the situation as several shots have been taken at Apple in other to undermine their creative efforts.

No doubt Apple is to blame for trying to make such a thin phone with such amount of length and width. But the bending issue shouldn’t be too much of a big deal and here’s why.

Recently the California based company responded to the bending issue surrounding the iPhone 6 plus in a conversation with Re/code saying that it’s very rare for one of it’s smartphones to bend and just a tiny fraction (nine customers) of the 10 million iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus devices sold have reported an issue.

“We chose these high-quality materials and construction very carefully for their strength and durability,” Apple told Re/code. We also perform rigorous tests throughout the entire development cycle including 3-point bending, pressure point cycling, sit, torsion, and user studies. iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus meet or exceed all of our high quality standards to endure everyday, real life use.”

Not unless you want to do a bend test with the iPhone 6 plus and probably try to bend it like the way some shoe sellers would, just to show you how strong the shoe is, the iPhone 6 devices will do just fine and considering just 9 customers have complained out of the 10 million whooping units that has been sold there doesn’t seem to be much cause for alarm. This just seems to be a case of other mobile phone manufacturing competitors trying to make a mountain out of a molehill.

  1. 9 out of 10,000,000 (figures not words out things in perspective) if accurate goes to show how threatened OEMs are by the new Apple offerings.

    Going by some of the YouTube videos, you would have to be a mini Hulk (or possess incredibly strong buttocks) to bend the device. It should do just fine in normal and quasi-normal usage.
