The iPhone 6 Plus has seen is fair share of criticism the last few weeks, especially following reports of how easily the phone “bends.” A video that surfaced recently shows just how how much the phone can bend exactly, as well as testing the competitors phones.
The smaller iPhone 6 looks to be less malleable that the iPhone 6 Plus, likely due the shorter lengthy span of aluminum. In the videos, it appears that the iPhone 6 Plus has a weak point around the volume buttons. The smaller iPhone 6 is resistant to the same amount of force, as shown in the video. Other than a small dent, the regular iPhone 6 remains intact and fully functional.
Based on the findings in this video, it is not believed that the smaller iPhone 6 users will experience the same issues that some of the Plus sized users are facing as far as bending goes. Also worth noting that the iPhone 6 Plus users will most likely not find the same amount of force on the phone from the inside of their pockets that was used in the videos. With that being said, it is still obvious that not much force is needed to bend the larger phone to the point that it “wobbles” when laying flat on a table.
Apple has not commented on the iPhone 6 Plus bending incidents, but iPhone 6 Plus owners can prevent bending by removing the phone from their pockets before sitting or by placing the device in a hard protective case.
