Just a few days after its release on Friday, customers are complaining that the iPhone 6 Plus bends under pressure.
Apple’s new iPhone 6 Plus boasts its lightness, thanks to its aluminium shell. However, another characteristic of aluminium may be a downside to the new Apple device. Aluminium is very malleable.
There are various forums, sites, videos, and articles online reporting that their new iPhone 6 Plus became warped after the owners bend or sit with the device in their front and back pockets.
Is this true? There are videos online that prove iPhone 6 Plus bends.
Lewis Hilsenteger from the popular YouTube channel “Unbox Theropy” decided to make a video to prove if the iPhone 6 Plus does bend. And, unfortunately, it did, with enough force.
In the video, Hilsenteger applied pressure using his fingers and thumbs on the very thin iPhone 6 Plus. He exerted some effort and noticed that there is a significant bend on the device, especially on the portion where the buttons on the side are.
Hilsenteger said, the bottom line is that iPhone 6 Plus is an aluminium phone that will bend if you exert enough force in it.
