  • what's up guys Lu here back with another video and today we're gonna to be doing the official iphone 6-plus bended test

  • now normally I wouldn't do a video like this but I woke up this morning and saw a number of reports claiming that the iphone 6-plus was bending inside people's pockets

  • so I decided to pull mine out of my pocket , I've been using it as my regular phone for the last couple of days

  • and upon inspection I actually noticed a tiny little indentation toward the center of the device

  • which kind implies a little bit of the bend, not much, nothing conclusive but some other images I've seen from

  • other people show a far more significant bend

  • and the claims are that people are just using it in their front pocket

  • which normally wouldn't result in a bend aluminum phone, but in this particular case we have such a large device I could see this being a significant concern for people

  • so for the sake of science today, I'm gonna bend this iphone 6-plus to see how much force it actually takes

  • to make this thing unusable or essentially bend in such a fashion you would be pissed off as the owner of one of these devices

  • so without further do , let's get into the iphone 6-plus bend test

  • so there you have it guys unfortunate but under the pressure of my hand it does band quite significantly specifically around this portion here

  • were the buttons. My focus was more in the center portion but it seems to be a weak point up here near the button cut-outs

  • bottom line here is it's an aluminum phone it is going to bend

  • if you apply enough pressure like I just did, now will this happen in your front pocket that probably depends on how tight your pants are

  • and how often you've wearing this in your pocket

  • I think it could. This was painful to do but for the sake of science that let you guys know if it's an actual possibility it looks like

  • it will be a possibility on the iphone 6-plus . Not necessarily the piece of information that you guys want to receive is brand new owners

  • of this device. It's probably not gonna be the most durable from that standpoint but it's a huge footprint

  • look at the footprint in that thing is a huge piece of aluminum and we all know that aluminum is incredibly malleable but now we have

  • actual evidence on a camera not just a picture of a band phone

  • after the fact, yes, it bends under the force of my hand pressure, just pushing on it the aluminum bend even with this robot piece of glass

  • It's time to see how Apple response to this if I get any updates I'll let you guys know in an upcoming video and quick reminder

  • I've got an extra iPhone , regular iPhone 6 there may be giving away shortly so subscribe for that

  • maybe this is not enough information to push you in the direction of picking the six over the six plus

  • bigger footprint, bigger piece of aluminum, greater likelihood of bending , they have it little bit approve right here on Unbox Therapy

  • thanks for watching guys. It was painful like I said before but it's all for the sake of science

  • so that you can a little bit more info about this investment that you're about to make

  • Alright. Catch up in next episode later .
