    For the stress he put it under I would have expected it to crack. There was considerable deformation to expect that. Still now the idorks are left in a world of pain.
    If MS had any sense they should be creating advertisements highlighting the durability of windows phones.


    Haha I just looked at the 2nd video. Korea for the engineering win :)

    7mm thick phones I guess they found the limit.
    Yes MS should definitely come up with such advertisements, iPhones loss, Microsoft's gain...:P

    @TonyDedrick Of course it is a big deal. The housing (body) is bendable which you think well ok not to bad but I can tell you that the MB is not made to bend. Not to mention with a warped device how will accessories fit properly, and docking station, charging station. Think about it.

    Worst case scenario the battery bends beyond its break point and battery acid or whatever leaks and starts melting you phone and it catches on fire while you are in the shower and then your whole house catches on fire while your kids are asleep up stairs and you call the fire department to rescue your kids but realize you haven't ate dinner and order Jimmy Johns then JJ show up before the fire department does and your kids are toast. but thats just worst case scenario
    You are too serious. Chill out. I hope whatever you mentioned never happens to anyone. Very disappointed with apple though, I never expected this from them

    Yes some previous phones did have some cases of bending.
    My concern is that this case here could be more common and that many people would expect a phone not to bend so easily.

    Also, two amazing names I saw: "Warp Gate" and "Bend-ghazi"
    Or maybe its a feature? "iPhone can change itself to fit you...

    I am not serious. I am actually very careful. That's just how I am though. You can never be too safe. Wife and I actually have a fire escape route and hidden guns in different rooms of our apartment in case of a break in and we actually make up scenarios of what we going to do in those situation.

    I never sit my back to the entrance of a restaurant
    I always look for an alternative exit route
    When I cant have have my concealed handgun on me I look for things around me that I can use as a weapon.

    LOL @ the comments being all defensive on that article. :D

    I think WP users hardly ever get to deal with bad hardware devices. Think about it. There aren't any "You're holding it wrong" Nokias, or ones that bend, or ones that shatter so hilariously at the smallest of fall as I watched happen to my friend's iPhone 4S. Neither do we deal with the lag and stutter of TouchWiz, or the permanent lack of available updates as is so common in Android, or the horrible cameras (even low end Lumias have acceptable cameras!). In a way, besides app margin, there is absolutely nothing wrong with WP or WP handsets... It's a lot more comfort in knowing that your device will come out of your pocket functional and not deformed. :p

    We deserve to laugh at them for their ignorance as they laugh at us for sticking with a platform with the (frankly) horrible app support. I love these moments :')

    Yes, we deserve a hearty laugh at apple & a big applause for them. Seriously today apple made my day. I can now proudly bash some iPhone fans, because this could never happen with Nokia

    I feel like common sense would tell you not to put your device in a situation in which it could bend. Again, this seems like much ado about nothing.

    By the way, if I did own a iPhone 6, the last thing on my mind would involve doing anything like this. And I would imagine most people who will eventually own one won't be putting their phones in this position as well.

    I love the way they are trying to bend all the other handsets that they can to make the problem seem less severe.
    First, camera comparisons, then screen comparisons, now... Bend comparisons...?!

    For what it's worth? I concur. I'll never understand the people who slide their several-hundred-dollar phone into their back pocket and then bend over and sit down and all that. My GF broke two phones - an old Kyocera flip-phone and an iPhone 3GS - doing that and she still does it today... drives me insane.

    I baby my phones, regardless of manufacturer. I spend too much money on them to do otherwise. Hell, I even have a bean bag on my desk in which my phone rests when it's out. :)

    Very poor phone material engineering. At least the screen doesn't crack.
    Look for a follow up video with the galaxy note 3. He said that the 6+ did crack when he tried to bent it back.

    Yes and the front left pocket is considered a normal spot to put a phone but it still bends

    Ya metal bends we get it, but although he used force...it wasnt anything overly exaggerated and i could completely see how so many cases have been reported. This is a real shocker considering its Apple, in my personal opinion is their products have always felt premium and very durable...even the more delicate-esque 5S took many falls from me without cracking or dents. When i picked up and tested the iPhone 6/+ at my local Best Buy the first thing that came to my mind was "this feels cheap", i did not expect it at all but in all honesty is feels VERY cheap in my opinion. So with my personal experience of using the phone, i guess im not very surprised it bent so easily.

    Seeing as how putting your phone in your pocket isn't that uncommon, then yeah it's a huge deal. Shouldn't bend so easily

    Enjoying the bad press Apple is going through, though feel bad for my friends who already bought this...

    Did anyone test it on 925? I guess that is the only metal phone Nokia has unless I am wrong.

    There is a thread in the 925 section about a bent phone.
