Unbox Therapy

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

Is Bend Gate a new Apple Antenna gate the company had with the iPhone 4. Reports of the iPhone 6 bending accidentally in owners pockets makes #BendGate a top Twitter's trending list. Is Apple having a bendgate? The video from Unbox Therapy does spell trouble. In the video you see Lewis Hilsenteger bend the iPhone 6 and it even breaks 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. Unbox Therapy also now tried to bend a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and that phone did not break. Watch both videos below.

No matter how real Bend Gate is, Social media users have a field day with the story trying to up each other with the best Bend Gate Joke. Phone Designer with his iPhone 6 Dali edition is leading the list. See the best Bend Gate jokes and Twitter one-liners below.

Yours truly also tried to be funny:

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.
