iPhone 6, HTC One M8, Moto X & More, Go Through The Bend Test

Yesterday's headlines were all about the iPhone 6 Plus and the new named #bendgate problem - that has seen some owners finding that their new 6 Plus has bent after having the phone in their pocket.

The reports made YouTube channel Unbox Therapy want to see just how easy is it to bend a iPhone 6 Plus. Finding - it's possible by applying force with your hands, which means it may even be likely to happen if enough force is applied in your pocket. So don't put your iPhone 6 Plus in your back pocket, or a tight constricted pocket. You may also want to think about buying a sturdy case if you're really worried.  

Now that we know the iPhone 6 Plus is somewhat bendable, people wanted to know more about other phones. The top requests being: the iPhone 6, the HTC One M8, the newly released Moto X, and more... So Unbox Therapy is back today for more phone bending experiments!

In this video, Lewis Hilsenteger, tries bending the iPhone 6, HTC One M8, Moto X, Nokia Lumia, and the iPhone 5s.

With more pressure than your (front) pocket might do, the iPhone 6 only slightly bent, meaning that it is a lot stronger than the 6 Plus counterpart, likely due to the smaller surface area. While the Android phones barley bent at all.

Lewis Hilsenteger says in the video that he doesn't believed that iPhone 6 owners will have the same bending issues as the iPhone 6 Plus.  I think - they might, and for owners to be cautious. The iPhone 6 might not experience bending as bad as the 6 Plus, but if you have your iPhone 6 in a tight pocket and it applies pressure for enough time - I believe your iPhone could end up being warped.
