Apple's print ad for the new iPhones shows their actual sizes

Apple's print ad for the new iPhones shows their actual sizes
For many potential buyers of the 4.7 inch Apple iPhone 6 and the 5.5 inch Apple iPhone 6 Plus, the larger screen sizes of the new models is something that they have yet to see up close and personal. It is hard to gauge the true size of either new model without actually seeing a real-life representation of it. Some iPhone users have never held a handset with a screen larger than 4 inches.

To help consumers get a better idea of just how big the new iPhones are, Apple has produced a print ad that appears on the back cover of Rolling Stone. The ad includes pictures of both new models in actual size. With 1.5 million subscribers, we wouldn't be surprised to see some of  the magazine's readers popping into the Apple Store to purchase one of the new handsets.

Kudos to Apple, first for realizing that many consumers interested in the iPhone might not have an idea how big its new phones really are. And then we have to give Apple credit for using life-sized photos of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in the ad. It is not the first time that such photographs have been included in a print ad, but you'd be hard pressed to find a better use for them. What about that Apple iPhone 5s? That belongs to the photographer who was comparing his 4 inch model to the pictures of the newer versions.

Its an apple fluff piece if you can't tell (like most of them). He gave them credit like 10x for stuff he admitted wasn't anything new. He also said that some iPhone owner have never held a bigger device, which is just down right funny because like hell that's true (its been 4 years of larger than iPhone devices).

Battery life is great on mine, it hasn't bent in my pocket, with crappy specs it still tops nearly every other phone in the benchmark tests... So yeah, I'm happy enough with it. But hey, if numbers on paper rather than actual performance is what impresses people then that's cool too.

Do not iNsult Apple.. iBend is a hidden feature..!! Quite similar to the Easter eggs found iN Android..!! This feature is so iNnovative..!! Have you ever seen a phone adapt and bend to match the curve of your body when put in pocket..??!! This is iBend..!!

I am not sure why people are complaining. For years iFans have been bending over and taking it. Now their phone bends with them. Sympatico.

So how many phones do people try to bend exactly? I've seen videos where guys try to bend an iPhone 6+ as hard as they can - have they done this with all phones? I'm pretty sure I could bend or break most if I put some effort into it. Is there a new site called "Will it bend?" I'd like to see some control tests with other devices... :p

Nice, will be interesting to see if the Note 4 does as well with the metal frame. The problem here seems to be the use of metal rather than plastics. cultofmac.com/297404/get-bent-shocking-history-ben​t-smartphones/ (need to put the URL bit at the front, I can't like as my account isn't old enough! :D)

its not the polycarbonate alone, samsung reinforce their phones with a magnesium chassis (which is more expensive than aluminium) but "the genius engineers" of apple make just an aluminium body(which known as a very weak metal) but without reinforced with any kind of chassis! here where u can make the difference in build quality not just by its look, but by its durability.
