iPhone 6 and Other Smartphones Prove Far More Difficult to Bend Than the iPhone 6 Plus [Video]

Posted September 24, 2014 at 11:27pm by iClarified
We've seen a video proving it's possible to bend the new iPhone 6 Plus with your bare hands but will the iPhone 6, iPhone 5s, HTC One M8, Moto X, and Lumia 1020 suffer the same issue?

Unbox Therapy has followed up their original iPhone 6 Plus bend test video with a new one that puts several other smartphones to the test.

Thankfully, the iPhone 6 performs much better than the iPhone 6 Plus, proving fairly difficult to bend. While there does appear to be some risk that you will bend the larger 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus in your pocket, it seems much less likely to happen with the 4.7-inch iPhone 6. That being said, all the other smartphones tested did even better than both iPhone 6 models with the Moto X holding up the best.


Take a look at the video below and let us know what you think in the comments!

Crapple known to keep their innovation and technologies secret always until the day its launch. This time also Crapple did the same and kept their word. Surprises are 1) flow less streaming during i6 launch 2) auto bend mechanism incorporated in phones (this was the biggest surprise ever) 3) cute little sexy OS update which make phones perform way better than before 4) and hot surprise on its was as something called "Watch". We iSheeps happy the way things turned out and appreciate all these efforts and surprises given. Thank you Crapple

This is the most stupid test EVER. It's obvouis that a phone that is the twice of FAT and made of plastic is hard to bend. I believe that this is a case for the mythbusters.
