iPhone 6 plus not suitable for pockets?

Apparently they're bending: http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/gadgets-and-tech/iphone-6-plus-bending-irate-apple-fans-repo...

This is going to become a major issue for Apple - they've sacrificed durability for a thin/aluminium casing.

Ha ha ha.
Fancy that.  Thin aluminium bending. Who would have thought.
That's a plus point for cheap flexible plastic.

Re: iPhone 6 plus not suitable for pockets?

It seems even apple are cutting corners again, & what has happened to the quality control check(s) again ?Huh
One would think that checking the build for durability / against bending would of been paramount ?Huh
I still think apple have not learned from the iPhone4 days over the aerial incident
Goes to show that they are far more money orientated & not as much customer orientated as they should be
Typical too big for our boots syndrome, who can get away with selling cheap tat @ extortionate prices (where they know their sheeples will follow)

Re: iPhone 6 plus not suitable for pockets?

To be honest though I have seen some other phones ' not suitable for pockets '  some about the same size as my tablet so far to big for my pocket!!

The number of young people I see with an expensive looking phone half in and half out of a back trouser pocket.
I presume they remove it before sitting down........unless some opportunist thief has removed it for them.

They should issue them to MPs as they would blend in well with the bent Parliament. Lips are sealed

Re: iPhone 6 plus not suitable for pockets?

The explanation is pretty obvious. Apple will tell people "they have been carrying the phone the wrong way" obvious really. #antennagate
