Just curious... Anyone that's in here complaining about the issue, has your personal phone bent yet?

Of course not. Most of the whiners don’t even own iPhones of any vintage, especially not the 6/6Plus. They’re bb and android shills here to stir the pot.

Not only won't it bend, odds are it won't fit into your pocket either.

I'm an iPhone user. I can't believe that opinions are so easily dismissed simply because you do not want to believe it.

I challenge Apple to provide proof that only 9 handsets have been affected by this.

Frankly I don’t care how many bend or don’t bend. I only care about one - mine. I carry it in my pants pocket daily, and it’s not bent. With that said, I firmly believe that the issue us trumped up, and is not nearly as widespread as some would have us believe.

Of course there are now more than nine units bent. We have documented proof that some low-life morons are bending them on purpose to try to make it look much worse than it is. Just check youtube for proof.

Here's a video by Marques Brownlee, a pretty well respected and fair, imo, tech guy. He explains why the new IPhones are more susceptible to bending than previous generations, and explains how to protect your phones. To be fair, he also mentions other phones that bend too.

I've seen that video and it's disgusting. I just believe that the tendency to bend has to be addressed.

I've had what I believe to be heat induced bending on an iPhone 5 already and these 6's are a bigger and thinner form factor.

Thats because thats what they are opinions, everyone has one. Mine is my iPhone 6, is great, I've had it for over a week and its not bent.
But I take care of it. If I sit down, its not in my pocket.

This is what concerns me. I shouldn't have take my phone out of my pocket every time I sit down.

I hear that, but you know it stinks I have to wear reading glasses and I only need them for reading. Which really stinks because I have to carry them around and shouldn't have to take them out of my pocket every time I sit down. But guess what happens if I don't.

I 100% agree that YES these phones can bend.. It is just common sense that a thin aluminum shell can bend! That is the first thing I thought when I walked into the Apple store, and now I own an iPhone 6, and am fully aware of this! I have owned an iphone 4,5, and 6, I like the build quality, people need to realize this is a high end electronic device, not a fisher price toddler toy! I am 6 feet 190lbs, I am sure if I put my 7" Google Nexus Tab, the "pure" google experience in my pocket, it will eventually share the same fate! If you want rugged and plan on doing activities that might damage these high end electronic device (like in my job) it is simple, invest in a Griffin Survivor, or an Otterbox Defender, and you do not have to worry as much anymore! I am sure MANY other rugged cases will be coming soon (sorry if I missed one) ;)

My first cell phone was a Motorola Bag phone. I don't even remember what my first truly handheld phone was. It may have been a Motorola StarTAC. Ever since I had that 1st handheld phone it goes into a holster. I look at these devices as a piece of equipment that should be given some care in their treatment.

I'v seen users with all makes of smartphones with them in their front and back pockets and wondered not so much as the device bending but the screen cracking. Also with the phone hanging out of your back pocket in my eyes it's a perfect target for a pickpocket.

As someone said people should take responsibility for their actions and to say that it never happened before is just a plan "cop out". Plus the fact that if I ever upgrade to a newer iPhone Xx I want the phone in the best condition for resale.

My iPhone 6 has a very slim Spigen case on it to prevent scratching and I keep it in an over size holster, Nite Ize universal XL, since it was the only type of holster available at the time. I'm also waiting for a non-glare screen protector to show up on the market.

I started a thread about this (which I probably shouldn't have), but my 8 year old daughter jumped on my lap, right on top of my iPhone 6 that was in my front pocket. I wasn't paying attention, and the phone dug into my leg so hard that it hurt. Guess what, my phone didn't bend. It's fine.
It was flat against my leg, in a horizontal position, and she landed right on top of it, which could have been a perfect bending scenario.
