Asus pokes fun at Apple's bending iPhone 6 issue

Asus pokes fun at Apple's bending iPhone 6 issue
LG, Samsung, and many others have already done it, and now it’s time for Asus to also try and make fun of Apple’s latest problem: its iPhone 6 Plus is easier to bend than most other handsets, and some users have already complained about this - though Apple mentioned that the issue is very rare.

Asus took to Facebook to compare what's supposed to be a bent iPhone 6 Plus to a ZenFone 6 (which, as you may know, is larger and thicker than the iPhone 6 Plus). The caption below the iPhone reads “iBend”, while the one below Asus’ ZenFone reads “iDon’t.” Another image shows the same bent iPhone leaning on a ZenFone. Asus also put a bent iPhone next to its Windows-based Transformer Book Flip, saying that “the best way to bend is to flip.” You can see it all in the slideshow below. 

It’s not the first time when Asus takes a jab at Apple. Earlier this month, immediately after the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were announced, Asus informed customers that they could buy 6 ZenFone handsets for the price of just one new iPhone.

You are one of those iDiots who will try to prove himself correct / better than others to any extent.

Awwww thanx. Before you call me an idiot again, make sure not to start a sentence with "So", that isn't a question, and a space comes after a coma. If something is funny, I'll put LOL, if not, I'll put lame. :D

That's some good fact to smack in Asus' face. But I'm not sure how that can be a good response. It's like saying "Oh yeah. Our phones bend, but it doesn't matter. People still buy them bent phones."
