#BendGate is trending again this morning on Twitter. A video that shows how an iPhone 6 Plus can bend with bare hands goes super viral and reaches 20 million views within 24 hours.

BendGate is real at least in people's minds. A video that demonstrates how a iPhone 6 Plus is bending just with bare hands has gone super viral. The video has already close to 20 million views making it the most viewed video on Youtube right now. Unbox Therapy just published the video a day ago. It is save to say that they easily got back the cost of the broken iPhone 6 Plus. 20 million views make a ton of Youtube advertising Dollars.

We all remember Apple's Antennagate with the iPhone 4. The reports of the iPhone 6 bending accidentally in owners pockets triggers the hashtag #BendGate to top Twitter's trending list. Apple has already sold 10 million iPhone 6 units. It would be a disaster to have to recall the iPhone 6.

The video from Unbox Therapy does show that the iPhone 6 Plus bends relatively easy. In the video you see Lewis Hilsenteger bend the iPhone 6 with his hands and it folds 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 Plus. Watch the viral video below if you have not seen yet. Unbox Therapy also tried to bend a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and that smartphone 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? It has one in PR. Social media is going nuts with funny jokes about BendGate. Depending how long that goes on, Apple will have to react somehow to it. Today #BendGate is trending again. So expect more BendGate jokes to surface today. We have compiled the funniest BendGate Jokes.

Unbox Therapy has added a new video with other phones getting exposed to the Bend Test including the HTC One M8, iPhone 6, Moto X and others. Watch below.
