Will it bend? New iPhone 6 may be too flexible in pockets

A SMALL number of those who've already purchased an iPhone 6 are reporting that they can bend in the user's pocket.

Nicknamed #bendgate, the story came out after members of the MacRumors.com forums began posting pictures of their iPhone 6s having been warped.

One user reported the warping came after a heavy day of sitting down.

Yesterday, I left at 10am with the iPhone in my left FRONT pocket of my suit pants. I drove 4 hours to a wedding, which also involved a lot of sitting during dinner etc but also 2-3 hours of dancing. I left at 2am and went to bed, driving home 4 hours back.

So in total, the 6 Plus was about 18 hours in my pocket while sitting mostly.

As I lay it on the coffee table and sat down on the couch to relax from the drive (yes, sitting again ), I saw the reflection of the window in the iPhones slightly distorted.
