Video shows whether or not #Bendgate is a concern for the Apple iPhone 6s Plus

Apple said that only a few complaints about #Bendgate had been received, and released a video showing how it tests the phablet during production. Perhaps the best video about #Bendgate was a hilarious fake commercial produced by Team Coco. Do not miss seeing this clip again!
Apple decided that it needed to strengthen the material used to produce the sequel to the iPhone 6 Plus, and turned to the Series 7000 aluminum it employs on the Apple Watch. This material is used in the construction of aerospace products, but could it stop the new Apple iPhone 6s Plus from bending? A new video shows that one person could not bend the new handset. Two men were able to get some bend on the weak area of the chassis, but it would seem that no one should use #Bendgate as a reason not to buy the iPhone 6s Plus.
If you're not convinced, take a look at the video yourself. It looks like #Bendgate, like #Antennagate before it, is no longer something that potential iPhone buyers should be concerned about.

How many peple where you at? I just stopped by the mall for something else, and the line to the Apple Store is huge... They got special area for them squared away, no tents allowed (it's inside the mall), but people brought unfolding chairs and stuff... It's shaping up that I'm gonna have to wait for my new iPhone like 2 years ago for 5S. Oh well, gives me a chance to try out some androids for couple of months again!

Sorry guys this video is a fake/advertising. Main reason No apple rep will replace your iPhone if you told them in advance that you were going to damage it on purpose to make Apple/iPhones look bad on YouTube. Sorry i don't mean to offend but it's true ask any apple representative/employee.

I've must have misheard it, but I thought he was referring to a third party repair service (not Apple). I though that was the reason for the "plug" in order to advertise th repair shop (probably one of the sponsor). I'll have to see the video again, but I don't think I care. Just wanted to see how much force it takes to bend that thing.

You would think that if someone gave you something expensive (or you bought it) and it was thin, but expensive, but they told you it's indestructible - subconsciously I'd still avoid sitting on it, and continue to handle it with care. That video that haters keep posting of bunch of photos of iPhone bent (most photos are of same few phones, btw), are mostly bent on purpose. I know for a fact that Apple replaced a few that you can tell were accidents even if you didn't have Apple care. People just bent the on purpose to overhype the real situation.

If you're talking about oneofthenine, then no, it was not photos of the same phones. There were over 600 different iPhones bent. And a significant number were denied replacement (and an official Apple document stated that bending was not warranty covered).

tedkord, I know what you mean, but I've seen the video, and you can see by what's in the background, and surface on which phone was laying on - that a lot of those photos were of same device shuffled in from different angles. Apple denied replacement only when you can tell that people bent these on purpose (L-shaped), but even though warranty does not cover physical damage (like everyother manufacturer) Apple still replaced many of them when it's clear the thing bent a little. I'm not denying that the 6+ is weaker than other phones, but it's horribly easy to bend - I havent seen one personally that's bent...
