Why are you repeating this poll PA ?! ... I already said NO, man! (provided it's 128 GB space gray and nothing else, which I doubt would be available in my local market straightaway, but I'm not particularly in rush to go shopping and discover yet)

inb4 all the iFans rush in and claim the problem is exaggerated and that Apple doesn't need to do anything about the problem. Oh, don't worry, iFans. Apple *won't* do anything about the problem, just like how they didn't do anything to fix Antennagate on AT&T iPhone 4's. The Verizon 4? Sure. The Sprint 4? Not a problem. The AT&T 4? Up until they were done selling it, you could still replicate Antennagate on a brand new one.

The hardcore Apples of this place will vehemently continue to deny the reality that the iPhone 6 portfolio of products are bad and were poorly designed engineered with low quality material. Apple won't even try to address this bendgate issue until the iPhone 6S comes around either.

Apple sent out free bumpers for the 4, so they did do something about antennagate. I wonder if they will cut a deal with Otterbox (or some other rugged case manufacturer) to offer a discounted Apple edition Defender? Although the Commuter cases are quite strong too.

P.S.: Speaking from personal experience, the Otterbox Defender cases are quite strong. I used one for a BlackBerry Curve back around 2009, and that was one tough case. I lost track of the number of times I dropped the case+BB onto concrete floors from 4, and 5 foot heights, and the thing just bounced. If Apple wants to get ahead of bendgate, they should definitely release a rugged case for the +.

Thousands of people voted, the small regularly reoccurring posters that post here, who are critical of Apple's products, aren't the majority of the viewers. Face it, the people have spoken.

When will these tech sites realize that these polls are garbage? It is way to easy for a troll to vote negative. No I'm not worried, I already own my 6 plus. Even if I didnt, I known the bending is overblown.

Lol, a lot of us are carrying flagship prices that are comparable to Apple products in price. Difference is, we pay for value, not for fluff.

Not really, I never planned to get it anyway as I don't buy inferior and outdated things. That was just the nasty cheap icing on the cake

Matchbox 20 has just been hired to perform its hit song "Bent" for Apple's next commercial. John B.

i don't know why phonearena put a poll for this. Of course this has to worry any consumer when spending his or her hard earned money.
