Apple: Android phones bend too! *releases video of zoomed in on hands bending the crap out of metal Android phones*

Apple: it's a software problem!

Apple: You're pocketing it wrong!

Apple fans: We don't care! We'll buy it anyway! Apple is God!

At most they better hope Android phones made of metal bend too. Just a theory....but I see why Moto went away from metal when the Droid RAZR launched...another thin phone.....and have stayed away from metal almost ever since. I loved the heavy, metal feel of older Moto phones...

Mine hasn't had any issues and it hasn't bent either. I guess with the good comes the bad; all this iPhone rejoicing must come with some bad news as well. It is what it is.

Exactly....with the good comes the bad. Nothing is perfect....no matter what many think...especially when it comes to Apple.

This is one of the few sensible posts I see when it comes to someone in the pro Apple camp.

It only costs $200 to make. What do you expect? Rolls Royce quality because of the rolls Royce price?

Apple: "People you are doing it wrong... the modern day smartphone is not meant to be carried around in your pockets. This issue is clearly a user based error."

LG should sue for the bending feature. Apple copied the LG g flex.

BREAKING NEWS: Apple has already issued a fix for the bending issue. You can download an App that comes with virtual sunlight for your eyes. Also, when the ear plugs are plugged into the device, the App sends subliminal messages telling you that ot is all an illusion while blinding your eyeballs with gamma rays to block the image of your phone. The App is $29.95 and is available immediately through the App store.

Jesus Christ...a couple of people (out of 10 million in case everyone has forgot) has an issue with a slightly warped phone because they don't know how to look after an expensive device, and the fandroid geeks come running...lol, hilarious.

An expensive phone you can't put in your pocket, while cheaper phones you can. Indeed hilarious, not to mention premium.

i don't think it can be bent just by putting in pocket , deliberate excessive force was applied .

Just like Antenna Gate, right? Also an issue you had to be in a certain situation to notice. Ppl come running to gloat about this because breaking sales records get gloated over. Cant have it both ways....

In a way....this might be just as big as Antenna Gate.

Thats a Note 3 in the video....Apple is going to have to find some flimsy Android phones to do their "Other phones do it too" video.

I have sat on numerous smartphones over the past few years, no problems....even my RAZR which some complained it broke from being sat on.

I wonder how the iPhone 6 would have fared.

A simple hard plastic or metal case will solve this problem, but Apple should have know this would be an issue and took care of it, I am now seriously considering NOT buying the 6 plus!
