Just a few days after launch, a growing number of iPhone 6 owners are reporting that the new device has bent while in their pocket!

Hanzoh posted his experience with the new iPhone 6 Plus on the MacRumors forums:

Yesterday, I left at 10am with the iPhone in my left FRONT pocket of my suit pants. I drove 4 hours to a wedding, which also involved a lot of sitting during dinner etc but also 2-3 hours of dancing. I left at 2am and went to bed, driving home 4 hours back.

So in total, the 6 Plus was about 18 hours in my pocket while sitting mostly. As I lay it on the coffee table and sat down on the couch to relax from the drive (yes, sitting again ), I saw the reflection of the window in the iPhones slightly distorted.

My friends did the same thing. Put it in his front pocket and it was like this when he took it out after getting in the car.

PD13 even noted that his easily bent while in a case:

Just found this thread and wanted to share my experience so far.. less than 12 hours after having my phone, lightly bumped into someone with my phone in my pocket. This is was the after effects were. The glass didn't crack, but the LCD did. Apple is replacing it for me, thankfully.

Issues with the iPhone bending in pockets is not new, after all it is made from aluminum. However, considering the much larger size of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, users will need to be far more careful. In some cases, Apple is reportedly replacing bent devices; however, others are being charged hundreds of dollars.

Let us know if you've already bent your iPhone 6. Did Apple replace it?

Update:
A new video confirms that it is possible to bend an iPhone 6 Plus with your bare hands. While having the device in your pocket shouldn't place such pressure on the phone, it does appear that a combination of tight pants and prolonged pressure could cause your iPhone to bend.

I would have died seeing this! What the hell is my Company doing!

what hell are you assuming. This is nothing but a joke. Our previous generation iPhone was slightly thicker and didn't bend easily. My friend did so many things with one in his pocket yet not a bent spot.

Please!!! It is pretty clear on the video that the guy is outing a lot of pressure on it and his thumbs are pressing the corner and the weakest part of the frame. In that condition it is obvious the phone will bend. Try the same with other phones and let's see if any will pass the test. The video on this article says everything. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-29371113

Apple needs to fire their current QA employees and hire a new team. This is unacceptable and this is coming from a Apple fanboy.
