Everyone knows that once a potential flaw is discovered in the new iPhone then all phones in existence must be tested for the same flaw. It happened with Antennagate and now it's happening with Bendgate.
The Apple iPhone 6 Plus proved easy to deform under pressure so the smaller iPhone 6 was put under the same test along with the iPhone 5s, the HTC One M8, another aluminum phone, the Motorola Moto X (2014) and the Nokia Lumia 1020.
The iPhone 6 has the same basic design as the iPhone 6 Plus but it's shorter and narrower, which gives its body more rigidity. It gave way a little bit but the problem isn't anywhere near as severe as on the big phone. Watch the Video below to find out Which phone will Bend!
It looks like Samsung isn't the only one taking advantage of Apple's #Bendgate. Samsung made a clever ad of the Galaxy Note 3 has popped up, showing the bent iPhone 6 Plus bowing to the Android phablet.
In addition, HTC and KitKat have also jumped on the Bendgate bandwagon on Twitter.
Sarcastically, HTC notes, "Designed to withstand the most demanding environments. Like your pockets." It refers to the One M8, which is also made of aluminum, but hasn't suffered from bending issues so far. In the other hand, KitKat said it doesn't bend, it Break.
Looking back at the whole iPhone 6 Plus #Bendgate debacle, it's impossible for anyone to downplay the incredible effect a single video from a guy who thought it's a good idea to test out the phablet's rigidity generated. In fact so easy was the iPhone 6 Plus to bend that the original clip that started it all racked in views in the tens of millions on YouTube alone a fraction of the total interest generated throughout the web.
It's hard to pinpoint any one single factor that contributes to content's sudden rise to viral status, but in the case of #Bendgate, it probably had at least something to do with the fact that we were talking about an Apple product, Besides, there's just something oddly-satisfying about witnessing the destruction of tech that costs hundreds of bucks as if it's no big deal. But enough with the introduction.
When Apple took to the stage about ten days ago and announced that its new iPad Air 2 will be impossibly-thin, at 0.24 inches (6.1 mm), many of you have probably paused for at least a second to consider the possibility that it, too, will easily bend. Interestingly enough, the first bend test of the iPad Air 2 that we saw just two days ago lead us to think that the Air 2 won't suffer from a similar issue. The slate looked rigid. But another video that followed up just hours later shows a completely different picture not only does the iPad Air 2 bend, but it can be literally snapped in two with just two hands.
