    Sadly, the regular consumer who watches this video wouldn't care about the fact that the amount of force required to damage a phone to that extend, is way more than what the device would be subjected to from regular use.

    They will watch this and think that these phones are fragile. Which is exactly what SquareTrade wants people to think. The video is simply capitalising on the over sensationalised "bendgate" in hopes that more people will buy protection plans from them. While it is informative for geeks like myself to see how much force the phones can take, the video to me is simply a marketing campaign. :/

    where's that youtube guy that would bend 6+ phones in public now? I somehow doubt he's out there pulling the same stunt with Samsung phones as we speak.

    He probably ran out of money. It's quite pricey to trash flagship smartphones for no reason ...

    Y'up! Somehow, I don't think he was a fellow economics major.

    Or maybe he sold any parts that weren't completely ruined...

    Idiots abound...

    I've seen that video a few days ago, but didn't find anything "astonishing" about it. It was an interesting watch nonetheless.
