Title: Bendgate 2.0?
Post by: Fujitsu on April 03, 2015, 10:02:19 AM
Last year when the iPhone 6 Plus came out Bendgate errupted as people were complaining that their phone was 'bendy' and with enough force the phone could actually bend and crack the screen. Well apparently Apple isn't the only company that produces phones with 'bend' potential as SquareTrade has built a machine to actually test how much pressure it takes before a phone bends and breaks. When you really think about it though, as phones become lighter, have larger screens, and thinner, bending is probably going to happen if you apply enough pressure (in the new Samsung S6 Edges case its 149 pounds of pressure). 






Is this a story or not? You be the judge. As for me, I'm sticking with my flip phone, no bending there...
