Two 16-year-old kids in the UK, Danny and Kylie, wanted to show that the Apple iPhone 6 Plus could easily be bent. The problem is, the two had no intentions of buying a unit, but bend a demo unit in an Apple Store. The two took down the video on YouTube, but like anything in the internet the a copy of the video was re-posted. Here s a copy of the video: The two obviously regretted bending the demo unit, and one of the boys, Kylie, released an audio recording on his YouTube channel apologising for their actions. Bottom-line is, Apple has to do something about this iPhone 6 Plus #Bendgate issue before this fiasco gets any worse. Share your thoughts through a comment on our Phones LTD Facebook page.

Currently, the hottest topic in the tech world is the Apple iPhone 6 Plus design flaw, which allows anyone to easily bend the device with just a small amount of force. It seems another phablet will be subject to scrutiny, as the first Samsung Galaxy Note 4 owners are complaining about a sizable gap between the device s chassis and screen. The photos you see above were posted by Korean-speaking ittoday. The show that gap is large enough to hold a business card. We re not sure if this is a widespread problem in South Korea, or if it only affects a few units. We ll get to know if the issue affects more units once the phablet is available in other markets.
