iPhone gets bent by treadmill, see the twisted aftermath

Look at this photo. Look at it very good and tell us NOW – what do you think could render an iPhone into such a miserable state? Frankly, this picture boggles the mind!
It's also worthy of an explanation, so here's the one given by the source: the iPhone was dropped during a run on a treadmill and got sucked into it. It went all the way around and under the belt before it got spit back in this perfect arc shape. The glass on top is completely shattered, the front panel popped off the assembly, and the back panel is fully bent.
Meanwhile, a deranged man in France busted into an Apple Store and took an iron ball to several thousand euro worth of perfectly good Apple gear. With the two accidents combined, today is most certainly a sad day for those who can't stand the sight of a broken iPhone.

"Look at this photo. Look at it very good and tell us NOW – what do you think could render an iPhone into such a miserable state?" Depends. Is it an iPhone 6? Carrying it in a front pocket.

The front pocket thing was the 6 plus, yes the 6 bends as well but not in the front pocket like the plus.

The sad thing is that no matter how dumb we think this is, someone out there is watching it saying "OMG that happened to me!"

I have had the iPhone 6 since launch day, and I know a lot of people who has it and the plus. not using a case and in my pocket/jeans/jacket etc normal everyday use and I still haven't seen a bent iPhone 6 irl. I'm not saying iPhones doesn't have issues but I believe the so called bend gate is overblown mainly by trolls

People tend to forget that it was only iPhone 6 "PLUS" that had the issues reported.
