The iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6 are not as bendable as believed, Consumer Reports unveil!

The entire media are now speaking concerning the iPhone 6 / 6 Plus #BendGate. Most of individuals on the web are complaining concerning the iPhone 6 bend-potential though they do not personal it and did not attempt it in any respect. And after the release of Apple's official response saying that solely 9 clients complained amongst greater than 10 hundreds of thousands, Consumer Reports unveil new details about the bend gate!

Consumer Reports examined many smartphones together with the iPhone 6, 6 Plus, Note 3 and extra. They put them via the "three-level flexural check", which has the telephone supported at two ends and has strain utilized at a 3rd level.
Consumer Reports' checks pushed the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus a lot additional than [Apple's test of 55 pounds of force]. We began mild, making use of 10 kilos of drive for 30 seconds, then releasing the drive. Then we upped the drive in 10-pound increments, famous when the telephones first began to deform (that is what our engineers name it) and stopped the check for every telephone once we noticed the display come unfastened from the case.
One of the shocking issues that the iPhone 6 Plus is definitely stronger than the iPhone 6 because the phablet one deforms at ninety kilos of pressure whereas the usual one deforms at 70 kilos solely.

The Samsung Note 3 tops all smartphones on this check by deforming at one hundred fifty kilos of drive. However, it is not metallic just like the iPhone.

So there isn't any "indestructible" telephone as the journal confirmed. But they're all protected for on a regular basis use. And sure, iPhone customers, don't be concerned in any respect!
