I am not even going to entertain this so called controversy of "bendgate" by positing more than this one post on this blog. It is total bull crap and another ill fated attempt to either garner more attention at the cost of Apple or a cheap publicity stunt to tarnish some of the very positive response the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus have got. I think this article from AppleInsider summarizes this nonsense completely. It is up to the user to decide if he/she wants a smartphone that is thin, weightless, made of metal and is slick that can bend when deliberately bent with force or stuffed inside tight pants for extended times or a phone that is thick, bulky, made of plastic, that can resist bending better but will break at the same amount of pressure. This is the difference between malleable metals and brittle plastic.
Like any other Apple product, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus seem to be extremely durable, much more so than any other competitor out there, in fact they have been dubbed the "the toughest iPhones made", that performed the best amongst any phone tested by SquareTrade (via 9to5mac).
