Apple's 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus seems to be more fragile than you'd expect. The device's ultra-thin aluminum body can be bent easily...

This is what you Apple fanboys get for believing Apple is not perfect. There is no such thing as a perfect compay and yet Apple fanboys always defend Apple even when they have problems on their own.

This is Apple minus Steve Jobs. Welcome to phones made like crap, massive data mining enterprises like "Health Kit", data loss debacles like the new iCloud Drive, etc.

The accountants probably went to Tim Cook and said we can save $1/phone by making the iPhone 6 out of thin tin-can aluminum. And Tim said "great idea. keep up the good work".

For an expensive phone it sure is iBends. People should reconsider on getting a strong case and extra careful if they want this iphone plus. Very disappointing.

Uh oh.....some folks will not like this....

This makes a strong point for using plastic, especially for a big and thin phone.

This is not good and i dont see how even the most loyal apple user can defend this. Yeah he applied pressure using his hands but what about the people that didnt do this on purpose? What does apple do now? Do they send out free cases to all 6+ users?

He really didn't apply much pressure either. You could tell by his blood red fingers he was really trying to snap the Note 3 in half but with the 6 plus he was barely using any force and it bent. To be fair, it was probably that easy because it was already bent and the structural integrity was already compromised but that should never happen in the first place.

They would probably win too. I can't believe how stupid that jury on that Samsung trial was.

Steve Jobs has taken Apple's glory with him. Hope Apple's fan boy also soon will realize that Apple without Steve Jobs is Crap.

I really wish I could see the faces of Samsung's execs when they were told the news about the iphone plus. As a marketing exec, I would immediately issue a " burn" commercial to be made. lmao!!!!!
