    IPhone looks good, but if you put it in your pocket it may bend, damaging such a pretty phone. Apple you should know better.........

    I wonder if apple will recall or payback all the damaged phone

    Guess this should give people the Passport or the Classic a spin. Doubt I've ever heard of a BlackBerry bending while in the pocket. Quality here

    This will just start another chain of ranting.

    Apple marketing will take control and tell everyone how steel rods also bend, so it's you, not the device.

    Really? Blame the customer for doing what people with cell phone's have been doing from the start, that is placing a phone in one's pocket should not cause it to bend, just saying. That shows you someone at apple wasn't paying attention, BlackBerry quality has yet to do this. My Z10, often is in my pocket, I don't use a belt clip or a cover. My phone doesn't bend, I've dropped my phone plenty of times, no broke screen, but chipped edges.

    My point is someone messed up, who builds or uses material that will bend in this way, I'm saying it's poor quality. I know that companies probably take in to effect how people use their devices on a daily basis and build sturdy but useful gadgets. This isn't study, women everywhere need to know about it, cause I think they'll be most affected. A lot of them I see have their phones in their back pocket

    I saw the reports too. The guy bent the 6plus with his bare hands. BARE HANDS! Shocking! Looks like the bent iPhone is now crippled in both software and hardware. Pun intended.

    Haha. I've been hearing about this all day yesterday. My first thought was that most any phone will bend using the right pressure. Isn't that how all those people's phones got shattered screens from just being in a pocket? I think it was some Samsungs that the issue became infamous with. The difference here being that it bends and holds its shape with the aluminum body and the screen just bends and doesn't shatter. It's quite interesting that it does that. I'm pretty sure I could bend my Z10. It seems to have some weak points. If I tried, the glass would probably shatter first before it bent out of shape. My Q10 is a different story. That thing is pretty tough.

    Now seriously... I heard of cracked screens, but bent devices is a major flaw!

    There was a guy on here last year who'd accidentally bent his Z10 in his pocket. It still worked but it had warped noticeably.

    The iPhone might bend but it doesn't blend.

    I'm sure it's just about possible with any phone, especially if there's been a flaw in manufacture. The difference is that it seems inherent in the iPhone 6. If it can be easily bent by hand, then every single one of them not in a case is going to warp sooner or later. And that is a big issue.

    I got my hands on one the other day, I was really surprised at how thin it was, and frankly quite impressed. I didn't even think of this issue.

    Maybe BlackBerry are smarter to use stainless steel for their devices? 9900 etc

    All the reports of this to date only deal with the iPhone 6 Plus not the iPhone 6

    That would make sense. Still not good. At all.
