For Apple Watch, we created a new alloy of 7000 Series aluminum that’s 60 percent stronger than standard alloys. Yet it’s very light. Together with the Ion-X glass covering the display, it makes the Sport collection watches up to 30 percent lighter than our stainless steel models. It’s also exceptionally pure, with a beautifully consistent appearance that’s difficult to achieve with traditional aluminum alloys.

All phones will bend if you put them under stress. Give me a old Nokia 7210 and I can snap that in half, the new Samsung s6 anything.. It's over blown by people trying to get on the media bandwagon not helped by Samsung who got involved poking fun at apple only for them to release a product which bends more! My iPhone no issues my friends s6 no issues it's just fat people siting on their phone blaming the phone for their weight issues...

Hoping for a below 5" 6s phone w/c would be more resistant by the least from bending. I wouldn't even waste a second picking one up right ahead, as of now I'm sticking with my 5s.

I think iPhone is a pretty weak phone, cannot even stand a .50 caliber bullet. Everyone knows that the main use of a phone is to sit on it, drive on it shoot it, do scoobadiving etc. The iPhone is NOT to be used to make calls, surf internet. I do not see the point of all this bend gate etc to thing, of course you can damage a phone if you seat on it.

Giot- of course you can damage a phone if you seat on it - WRONG! I have both iPhone and Samsung latest models, the Samsung does NOT bend, as weak as the iphone, try the Note 3 and Note 4 thats the toughest phone out there today... Stupid iPhone are weak, which moron decided to put the power button on the center of the phone where its the weakest point to break.
