MANILA, Philippines – Over the last few days there has been increased reports of the Apple iPhone 6 bending in user’s pockets. Already number of videos have also come up showing the bent iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
Bend over to those who are worthy. – Samsung Galaxy Note 3
One such video, uploaded by Unbox Therapy on YouTube, shows an iPhone 6 Plus easily bending when pressure is applied. The iPhone 6 Plus was unable to resist and the gave way near the volume area, where the aluminum case appears to be thinnest.
This limitation is a major blow to the Apple iPhone 6, which was launched earlier this month.
Rival mobile device manufacturer Samsung has come up with a clever advertisement poking fun at this weakness. The advertisement shows a bent phone, apparently an iPhone 6 Plus, kneeling to a Samsung Galaxy Note 3.
The ad contains a caption that reads:
“Bend over to those who are worthy.”
The video of the iPhone 6 Plus bend test can be seen below.
In the Philippines, the iPhone 6 Plus cost as high as 108,000 PHP when it was first launched.
