Does Apple have a BendGate with iPhone 6?

#BendGate is trending this morning on Twitter. Does Apple have a problem with the iPhone 6? Reports appeared of iPhone 6 owners bending their iPhone accidentally.

We all remember Apple's Antennagate with the iPhone 4. Now reports of the iPhone 6 bending accidentally in owners pockets triggers the term BendGate to top Twitter's trending list. Is Apple having a bendgate? Apple has already sol 10 million iPhone 6 units. It would be a disaster to have to recall the iPhone 6.

The video from Unbox Therapy does spell trouble. In the video you see Lewis Hilsenteger bend the iPhone 6 and it bends right under the volume buttons. This means there is a weak spot in the iPhone 6 frame. 

Now we have seen also older iPhone models bend, but it seems it does take less force to bend the iPhone 6. Watch the video below. Unbox Therapy also now tried to bend a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and that phone did not break. Watch both videos below.

I think Apple should have made the iPhone 6 not as thin as it is. Alone for the sake of making the camera lens not stick out. It would have also make the iPhone 6 more stable. Does this mean that Apple has a BendGate? As of now, i do not think so, but if reports about damaged iPhone 6 are increasing than Apple will have to react in some way.

I am still not over the fact that the iPhone 6 is ugly as hell. I would like the larger screen, but the iPhone 6 backside with the antenna lines and protruding camera lens is a disgrace. I am sticking to my trusty iPhone 5 and wait for Apple to fix the design issues in the iPhone 6S in 2015.
