Some iPhone 6 Plus units seemingly suffer from accidental bending
posted by Florin T. / Sep 23, 2014, 12:27 PM
Since the iPhone 6 Plus measures 6.22 x 3.06 x 0.28 inches (158.1 x 77.8 x 7.1 mm) - thus being both larger, and thinner than any other previously released iPhone - the fact that it’s more likely to bend under certain circumstances may not come as a surprise.
Apple has yet to take an official stand on the matter. However, if similar reports continue to show up, we assume it won’t be long before the company releases a statement regarding the accidental bending. In any case, this doesn't look good (both literally, and figuratively) for Apple.
If you own an iPhone 6 Plus, let us know if you have any problems with it. If you don’t own one, but maybe intend to, check out our iPhone 6 Plus review here.

When your goal is to make a thinner and thinner iPhone's, using a naturally bending material such as aluminum. Then what were people expecting? One of the great features of plastic. It returns to its original shape. Thin was never in for me. I rather have a larger phone with a bigger battery any day of the week.

Yup. The Droid RAZR had cracking issues when ppl had the phone in their back pockets and sat on it. Its was my first and last ultra thin phone. Funny part is thicker phones felt better to hold in the hand. I had a G Nex and Rezound for comparisons. I say boo with ultra thin, we want more bigger batteries.

Steel would a been great - but it rusts. Plastic is even worse. So - aluminum is ideal - but even though I love apple products and ios - enough of this thinness crap. The protruding camera should tell u that making the phone a millimeter thicker would have its benefits. And not just a smooth back, but more rigidity, and/or more room for components inside. I don't hate, but these compromises are the reason I avoid android.

Android is just an operating system. If you were to compare iphone 6 plus and the note 3, you see that one bends and breaks and the other one doesn't. There's a comparison video in the comments of another article about the bending issue.

which hole did u crawl out of? How thin is the Xiaomi mi 4? How many units have already been sold .If 5000 phones are bending ,that's more than a lot to make the .news. Every Chinese flagship sell way more than that amount.

We have heard the same stories when the iphone 5 was released( and we made fun of it for 2 days in PA...because it was the first phone in the market with a flexible display...lol) but no one else reported such problems after that...PA and many other tech reviewers have iphones with them but they don't say that something like that happened to their iphones.
