The iPhone 6 and 6 plus launched in late 2014 and in a couple weeks, users were complaining about how the flagship smartphone was “bending in their pockets.” This trend seems to have passed on to it’s competitors: The Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge.
A word of advice: Don’t put your phone in your back pocket! It looks entirely out of place and unless you want your phone to match the curvature of your backside, sitting on your phone every now and then isn’t ideal. Nonetheless, Bendgate did a bunch of tests on the the latest flagship smartphones out there to see which ones could face the cruel reality users put them through.
The iPhone 6 Plus took on 110 pounds before bending in Bendgate’s tests and 179 pounds to be rendered completely dysfunctional. The S6 edge on the other hand could handle the same weight before bending, but suffered a cracked screen on the edges. But, what really raised our eyebrows was the fact that the S6 Edge took 30 less pounds to fully break until it couldn’t function any longer.
So there you have it.
