    I don't understand why people make such a big deal when Apple has this "issue" yet all of the other phones out there that do go unnoticed. I get that Apple is the company everyone wants to hate, but they didn't make a flawed device. It is the material itself that causes the problem and for most users they will not see their phone bend.

    Apple could have used another material or reinforced the frame. Apple knew what happens to the material and how it's not super strong.

    People need to be more careful and/or take responsibility for their own actions.

    iPhone bent? Go to the Apple store or STFU about it.

    I will always liken this bend thing to dropping your phone. Why don't people blame Apple when their screen cracks after dropping their iPhone on concrete? Because it is YOUR fault it fell. Its simple physics..a lot of phones can bend if the right amount of pressure is applied. My 6+ is as straight as the day I bought it.

    Lol... I'm just sick of these <whatever>gate conspiracies. People need to stop feeling entitled and start taking care of their high priced electronics. It's like when the glass-backed iPhone 4 came out and people dropped and cracked them and somehow blamed Apple.

    I have never seen a bent smartphone until I saw my brother in law's new Iphone 6+ bent after 3 weeks. It looks exactly like the one the photo only it was bent a bit more. He is an IT expert looking after his stuff - I could not believe it. This is not the first time Apple has put form over function in the sacred name of nice design. For example removing fans from computers because it's not elegant according to the gospel from St. Steve. Well the computers fried due to the resulting overheating of the CPU or GPU or both. And now with the new Macbook 12" with no fan. The had to put the slowest processor at 1.1 GhZ inside so it doesn't overheat.

    To me and every normal thinking person this is a clear flaw in the design of the device. It obviously has a weak spot aroung the volume rocker.

    It is also sad to read some of the comments from the Apple cult responding in a very aggresive way and blaming the user - parotting the way Apple Inc. responds to problems with their products in which the customer is always to blame (Iphone 4 antenna problem: "yoǘ're holding it wrong".

    On a final note I am removing all Apple products from my household after they removed two of my comments on their support forum. Simply unheard of corporate behaviour.

    Here is the way to completely fix all fear of bending iPhones as well as fix the bent phone itself.

    Put all of your accessories back in the box along with the iPhone, then take your box and receipts and get into your car, next while listening to eminem's "Stan" drive to your local Apple Store, once you have located the store grab a pen and jot down how the bent iphone ruined your life, lastly drive past the Apple Store finding the nearest cliff or bridge and punch the gas driving off.

    It's grim but problems solved.

    I've been biting my tongue since this thread started but finally I gotta vent, just a little...

    This whole bending thing is not the phone, I'm betting it's the fat @$$ that it's pressed up against. 😈. You're not a size 32 waist anymore, buy a 36 & your phone will be fine.

    Another thing, I have yet to hear or read about one kid who sags his pants complain about a bending 6 Plus. 💀 Buy a 38 waist instead & sag...

    Whew...ok I feel better,

    Peace ✌️
    Glad you feel better SMH

    My Iphone 6 plus bent. It has been in a case since I bought it (though a thin one since I did not want to add too much size) I rarely if ever sit with it in my pocket, and I am always careful with it. That being said, I noticed a slight bend in my phone recently. I have no idea what caused it but it was normal use. It should be covered under warranty. Cell phones should be able to live up to normal wear and tear which would include being in a pocket, purse, or bag since they are meant to be carried with you. I am disappointed in you Apple!! To those of you calling those of us morons for having a bent Iphone, I can only hope you experience the same fate as us.

    It's easy to experience the same "fate" as you and others like you...we bend our phone and maintain a baffling level of entitlement while taking zero responsibility for our own actions.

    Surprisingly, this isn't such a rare characteristic...children do it all the time.

    Damn a iPhone curse. I guess I'll have to sleep with a necklace made of frayed 30 pin cables to ward off the evil spirits that bends the iPhone 6 Plus.

    Funny Story..... i had a slightly bend iphone. I use A leather case with it and just recently I dropped it and the screen cracked. I made my way to the Apple Store after I made an appointment to replace the screen which should only cost $130. after waiting two hours I finally get someone to help me. This person takes my phone and puts it on the flat table and starts checking for Bends. I'm looking at him like he's crazy because my phone is working perfectly for the exception of the broken screen. I figured it will be a easy fix he'll change out the screen and charge the $130. He then tells me that if for any reason they can't properly replace the screen because the slight bend on the phone I will need to pay $300 to replace it. I looked at him like if he's retarded now. I'm like the phone is working perfectly I just need a new screen. Why won't you be able to just change out the screen? He then tells me that due To the bend that they might not be able to get the screen on it and run the diagnostics afterwards so I would need to give them permission to replace the entire phone. I told him no I just need you to change out the screen. I do not want a new phone nor can I afford it. Then he tells me that if they can't replace the screen I will have a nonfunctioning iPhone because they'll just give it back to me and pieces. At that point I'm furious I can't believe that changing out the screen on this phone would be such an ordeal. Since I have insurance through T-Mobile I just decided to get a replacement phone through them. I was a little skeptical at first because I did not want a refurbished phone after spending close to 1000 for my now broken phone. But After dealing with Apple I said F it I'm just gonna pay the 175 deductible and replace the phone through T-Mobile's insurance plan. I get the phone the very next day and it's a brand-new iPhone 6 Plus. The moral to the story is that these phones to bend easily and if your phone is slightly bent take it to Apple immediately so that they can replace it because if in the future you do have an issue with your phone they are going to use the bend as an excuse. Also let me add that I took very good care of my phone. It was kept in my front pocket I never sat on it nor did I drop it. It is very easy to Bend these phones. keep in mind that it's a very small bend and hardly noticeable but it will bend.

    Not to hijack this thread, but which color Neo Hybrid did you get? I have the guynmetal color and it's probably the nicest case I've owned for any iPhone.

    Sounds like you didn't have AppleCare Plus on the iPhone. AppleCare Plus would have covered it with a deductible.

    I have the 6+ and it is in an Apple silicone case. I usually carry my phone so I have yet to have any issues with it bending, but if I ever do I will definitely be taking it to Apple to get them to swap it out. That is what I love about Apple, they have amazing customer service and they always remedy any issues I have with my phone
    'Nuff said.
