There’s trouble in iPhone 6 early adopter land. The people who stayed in line for hours and managed to not drop their phone as they unboxed it have found another problem. For those who can actually fit the massive Plus in their pockets their phones are bending. #Bendghazi they cry!
The good folks at Unbox Therapy got on the case and wanted to see if their iPhone 6 Plus had bent as well. It had, slightly. The host then went on to bend one in the video below to see how much force it would take to ruin the phone. It look like he had to apply some real force there to make it happen.
This all seems like the opposite of the problem with the iPhone 4’s glass back, which was rigid and prone to shattering. This back, made from lightweight aluminum is prone to flex. We need a happy medium Apple! Have you tried carbon fiber? Until then, get one of these iPhone 6 cases to protect your investment.
