so...that proved what ? I don't know anyone that buys a phone and says "hmmm....I wonder if I can bend it, let me try."

Don't mind me. I'm doing my best Michael Jackson impersonation and an just here for the comments. ;-) But it really is pathetic to see iFanboys to think up every excuse in the book to defend an obviously flawed product.

Wow, the proof just keeps on coming, meanwhile, Apple sadists like iodine, darkjedii, that other dude that pretends to be an unbiased tech lover, will continue to sit there and say it doesn't happen to them.

The real news on this page is found in the comments #64 by Sniggly who posted a link about an on online media outlet receiving corrective action by Apple for proving the iPhone bends. They'll no longer receive test phones or receive invites to Apple events. Apparently Apple can dictate what the media is aloud to report on regarding its products and punish those who disobey.

IPhone 6 Plus is a disposable kids toy. Save your $$$ for something worthwhile.

Still trying to scientifically defend the iPhone. Just say your wasting your money on a weak product. We're sorry would be nice. But we all know that aint going to happen. lol.

That's pretty much sealed the case. Feeling really sorry for all the 6+ owners. I am pretty certain they have started to protect their "Precious" toy with utmost care. Always being alert to keep the phone in their front or back pocket. Making sure to bring it out of the pocket before sitting. The most pathetic is checking it out regularly by keeping it on a flat surface to look for any bent. And the dooms day will be there when they finally find that even after all this 6+ is bent.

The guy who started this #BendGate phenomena has also showcased the powress of the new Moto X 2014 multiple times in his videos (TBH, I'm also surprised at how strong it is compared to the 90% metal HTC One M8). Why is there no mention of this in any of PA's articles?? In consumer's defence, we're paying close to $800 to $1000 for a phone and we expect it to withstand atleast our pockets. Well-known Tech blogs like PA should stop supporting Apple for its flaws. "Don't demand for Good. Demand for Great!" #SonyXperia
