Consumer Reports is Designing an 'Authoritative Test' to Check the iPhones 6 for Bending Problems

Posted by · 10304 views · Translate
Consumer Reports says it's designing an authoritative test to find out whether Apple's new phones have structural issues.

After numerous reports surfaced online of iPhone 6 devices that had bent in the pockets of users, videos surfaced that showed it was quite easy to bend the device.

Apple has since responded saying that this is not a valid problem and only 9 users have complained about the bending issues in 6 days.

Well as luck would have it, Consumer Reports has exactly the right equipment to test this sort of thing, and we've used it to test the flexibility of phones before. We want to do a scientifically valid test of the structural strength of the new iPhones as well as that of comparable phones, and we'll have results soon. So stay tuned.

We'll let you know as soon as their 'authoritative test' is live. Please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for updates.

Unbox Therapy has gone viral. The video depicts a man attempting to bend the iPhone 6 Plus with his bare hands. He is able to bend it quite significantly as you can see in the picture. The video has been viewed over 17 million times, so it certainly is not something that should be disregarded by Apple. In follow up videos Unbox Therapy tried to bend the Galaxy Note 3 as well as other smartphones such as the Moto X, iPhone 6, Lumia 1520, and the HTC M8. He wasn't able to bend any of them, meaning this problem is exclusive to the iPhone 6 Plus. The man who bent the phones noted that when he tried to bend the iPhone 6 Plus back into place the screen ended up cracking. So there

lol. And this one definitely paid by Crapple. Just like they did with case against Samsung in court, judge was paid heavily.
