Ok, in the last 24 hours there have been reports of iPhone 6 Plus devices bending – if you keep them in your pocket when you sit, or in some ridiculous examples (just to prove its possible) people literally bending the phone with their bare hands.


Honestly, are you kidding me?

  • It’s a big phone, if you sit on it for long enough on an angle, it will bend.
  • If you bend it with your bare hands, you’re an idiot.

Please don’t try to make this out to be some sort of “antenna gate” style drama with the iPhone 6 Plus.  Deal with the fact that it’s a big phone and treat it that way.

This is a $1100 (or there about) investment – why are you not treating it as such?

    It’s clear in your reporting you favour apple considerably, if the situation was reversed and it was the Samsung Note # that was bending so easily I’m not so sure you would have written the same article defending Samsung? Why did you feel the need to write this article? Common Sense would dictate it is not even necessary to breath more life into the story

    Trevor is giving his honest expert opinion on iPhone 6 favourably…why wouldn’t he – Apple still makes the most stable & attractive easy to use Mobiles. I have used numerous mobiles over the years iPhone is always ahead of the Pack. Samsung copies…that is why Apple took them to Court time & time again. Apple comes up with the ideas etc & Samsung usually copies them….apparently Samsung & Apple have reached an Agreement.
    Apple is still the most innovative Company with the best Customer Service on this Planet – their Genius Bars are brilliant. I can’t recall any other Mobile Manufacturer where people camp outside the Stores for days waiting to purchase the latest new release Mobile…….
