    I'm so sick of this bend gate crap so much so I'm considering not even going to any web pages or using any social media for about a month or so.

    I'm literally over it. My faith in humanity is already at an all time low.

    A few pictures get posted online. Some dude makes a video shaking his hands in attempt to bend an iPhone and everyone goes nuts

    The fact that society has reacted to this crap in such a manner is a scary thought in of itself

    Oh btw? For the android fans out there. Guess what ? The HTC M8 apparently bended as well.

    Did you see that HTC USA tweeted out a joke already?

    Total CLASSLESS act. I have no admiration for HTC anymore.

    No I didn't see that. I can see Samsung doing a commercial about this now.

    They seriously need to come up with another slogan #thenextbigthing is becoming #thenextbigjoke.

    Even BlackBerry jumped on the bandwagon this morning as they introduced the big square thing.

    Just let it go. Both HTC and blackberry are struggling and well, Samsung is just Samsung. I find it surprising blackberry joined in though considering a Q10 bent recently.

    You express your distaste for the continued discussion of the bending screen by...continuing the discussion of the bending screen.

    The big, annoying, idiotic thread was closed...put to death after having been dead and beaten for many hours...and you resurrect the issue with a new thread.

    I'm no lawyer by any stretch of the imagination. But I think Apple could sue Samsung for defamation if they made a commercial insinuating that your iPhone will bend.

    I've debated deleting Facebook over that video. I have a ton of android freaks on my Facebook who seen that video and shared it a billion times so every iPhone owner could see it. Like get a life... It's an aluminum phone, you wanted thinner, lighter and bigger?... If your a complete dingleweed with your phone yeah it will probably bend. Use your head

    the funny thing is that you always see the same pictures of the bent phone over and over, the same video over and over... so they are basing this bend gate thing by a freaking video and 2 or 3 pics!!!!

    It isn't defamation if they show other people saying it will bend. Unless they sue in the UK, I hear their defamation laws are pretty scary

    I was in the bar with some buddies last night and one of them started giving me s**t over this ridiculousness. He kept bringing up the video he saw where it was bent, kept saying 'only Apple', and and going on and on about my choice. Finally I had enough and said "give me your phone" which is a galaxy S5. He said "for what". I said "well like you said, only apple. So you shouldn't have any issues at all with me trying to do the same thing to your phone with my hands".....

    That put an end to the b.s. right then and there.

    Maybe I missed something but what is supposed to be the downside of having your phone bend instead of break when pressure is put on it?

    I hear a lot of complaints about the bending but is anyone complaining about any specific issues due to bending? Any issues the iPhone 6 and 6+ have, are not due to bending when in a back pocket, are they?

    I don't have any pictures handy, but you could google the images released that allegedly show the bent phones in question. We are not talking a subtle bend and there isn't an advantage of bending vs breaking because keeping your phone in your pocket shouldn't cause either to happen. While I still question the validity of any of it, I would without question tell you that if I spend $300 on a phone let alone upwards of $1,000 out of contract, I wouldn't want it bending...period.
