    Honestly get out of here with this garbage.

    You know what ? I've lost faith in humanity of people really think this is apples fault. PS. Do yourselves favors and keep yourselves intellectually honest and look up the HTC ONE bending. Yes. It ALSO bends. There's several threads online about it

    Physics.
    Apple designed the phone. The phone's design allows it to bend. It is Apple's fault.

    My dad used to tell my sister all the time that if someone handed her a crisp new $100 bill that shes complain because it wasnt five $20 bills.

    The problem with your post, Finn, is that it makes complete and total sense to a reasonable person. Not sure that we are really dealing with that class of people here.

    The obvious solution to this issue is to alternate the phone's position (face up/face down) in your pocket. That way, IF it bends one way, the next time it will straighten itself out. (To clarify for those of lower intelligence, that was a joke.)

    I suppose it's also apples "fault" the phone can't withstand a nuclear blast. ?


    I wonder if these things are Urine proof too? I'll get back to you guys after I go do a pee test


    Shark proof ? Lather it in blood stick it in the ocean . I wonder if it can hold up?


    Once again. HTC ONEs also were bending.

    Wow, you're hilarious. Funny thing is though, I know of not one person who urinates on their phone, or expects it to withstand that.

    What's even funnier is that I know people who like to carry their phones in their pocket! And they even keep them in there!

    These strange people expect their phones to stay straight under regular conditions...lol! You're right, what is wrong with these people? Why would they expect that a $1000 device, designed for your pocket, would be capable of being in there without trying to emulate an LG Flex???

    And yes, it is Apple's fault. Just like it's HTC's fault if an HTC One happens to bend under its intended usage. Which doesn't seem to happen. Of course, we don't know for sure that it happens with the Plus...yet.

    That's the thing...I don't want to pull out my phone at every class at school. I may not have room on my desk, or I might be doing something that poses a risk to my phone. I can't necessarily put it in my bag either, as that's often hard to access or out of the way. And I want to use my phone in these situations! That's why I've got it! I can understand having my iPad mini sitting out on a desk, for its occasional use. But the whole advantage of a phone to me is that it's in my pocket, ready for when I need it! I shouldn't be limited, or have to change my habits, all because of a potentially flawed design.

    I really hope that I can be persuaded about this being a non-issue. I want the Plus a LOT. But I'm a user who always keeps their phone in their pocket, and I wear tightish pants sometimes. I can already imagine that there might be enough force there to bend this phone...

    That is fair. I shouldn't ever assume everyone's situations are the same. All we have to this point are people's accusations. We don't have proof the bent phones were in front pockets. We don't have proof that these situations occurred under normal duress. The same accusations and pictures occurred with the 5 and 5S too and that resulted in nothing of substance. Hopefully this doesn't preclude you from giving the 6 or 6+ a try as they are great phones. But you have to take care of yourself and your needs first. Best of luck to you in whatever you decide to do

    It's only interesting if you don't realize what you're watching...which is a plastic phone being compared to an aluminum phone in terms of bending.

    Guess what other popular device has the same kind of bending "issue"? The iPad Mini/iPad Air.

    Guess how many people are talking about that? Nobody.

    Why you ask? Because this isn't an issue.
    That's just your opinion, that it isn't an issue. It sure is an issue to me. What I saw was a far more forgiving device to the mishaps that may happen in life, but since you're perfect I suppose that's why this isn't an issue. I can understand why people will still want this phone and make the decision to be more careful with it, I can respect that, and their opinions. <comment removed by moderator>.

    Thank you. I hope as much as anyone that this isn't an issue. And I can't know if I'd have it until I try it myself. I'd just make sure to check about replacement and warranty before j bought, to be on the safe side.

    I guess I'm just so worried because I don't want something as ridiculous as this ruining such a great device.

    I've been keeping my 6 plus in my jeans pocket since I bought it. Mine is just fine

    Yet you rush to conclusions and immediately assume bending is the case with about what... I count 4 pictures out there on the net ? And a video of a guys hand shaking to bend one ?

    10 million sold iPhone 6's?

    Right. Apples fault.

    Read the last sentence you quoted :P

    I'm glad to hear of a real life case, thanks. If I hear of enough people using the phone similarly to how I would, without issues, I'll be very happy.

    I think putting it in a pocket in jeans and putting it in a pocket in skinny jeans are two separate things.
    Either way, it shouldn't be bending in any sort of jeans....

    If you put a large, thin aluminum rectangle in your back pocket and sit on it for hours at time, there will always be a chance that it will get damaged. Common sense has to play a part in this.

    I have personally carried my cellphone in my back jeans pocket for years - BlackBerries and iPhones. But I always removed it from my pocket when I sit down. It’s a matter of both common sense and convenience.

    This sucks. My 6 Plus is on its way and now it looks like I'll have to turn around and exchange it for a 6. If I can't put my phone in my FRONT pocket, that's a deal breaker. My iPhone 5 has lived in my front pocket for two years now.

    This. Apple engineers are really good, but shame on them for not finding a way to suspend the laws of physics.

    Well in my opinion why are you putting a phone as large as this one in places where you sit. Too me this sounds like some people who forgot to take their phone out of their pockets when they sat down.
    That's exactly what happened ...

    I believe that this is the one place where u can find sensible people who know physics.
    And I am not disappointed in believing that. Haha. I think when the person was doing that bend test, he should have done so with a physics book open which explained pressure and a chemistry book opened which explained metals and then co-related both the topics after which he could have announced his conclusion. Well, 4 million views is what you get after doing such senseless things.

    Well people shouldn't have to adjust their leg wear because Apple made their phones too thin.

    I guess I don't understand people saying their 5 or 5s never bent in their pocket and they are afraid the 6+ will bend. If your phone is getting bigger and your pockets remain the same size, what do you think is going to happen? If you want a phone that fits in your pocket, don't get a 6+. I barely carry my 5s in my pocket and wouldn't even consider carrying my 6+ in my pants pocket. Somewhere on here someone stated that normal people want to carry their phone in their pocket, but I have to disagree with that. I think a normal person will realize the limits of what can and can't be carried in their pocket.

    That just simply does not make sense. I would have to see proof and observe it happening. Remember, just because it’s on the internet, doesn't mean that it’s true.

    I can "report" anything I want - bit it doesn’t make it so.
