Sometimes you have to stop and wonder if Apple ever actually uses their phones before releasing them to the public, remember Antennagate? Where Apple famously told their millions of customers that they’re “holding it wrong” since reception would cut off if the antennas were covered. Now it seems Apple have messed up again, one of the major selling points of the iPhone 6 Plus (besides it being so big), is that it’s only 7.1 mms thin, pretty impressive. However it looks like it might be a little too thin, as multiple users are claiming that the aluminum body of the phone actually bends and distorts (permanently) out of shape when sitting in your pocket for too long.
Other reviewers have managed to bend the phone out of shape with their bare hands, not very “premium quality” anymore. I’m actually disappointed by this since I used to admire Apple’s attention to detail and their high quality phones, now it seems they rushed out the new iPhone without testing it properly (also the protruding camera lens is out of place).
A simple thing like a bending phone won’t deter the millions set on getting the new iPhone, but perhaps this will mark then end for the “thinnest phone” race, and we can concentrate on the important things again; like battery life and cool new features.
