I never keep my phone in my front pocket because it's not good having the radio next to private parts.
I always keep it in my back pocket.
By the way there IS a history of MANY large phones bending.
So blame Samcrap for their battery-bleeding-technology-requiring-larger-battery-size large phone trend ploy.
On a recent trip through Heathrow, I immediately noticed that the charging stations were populated by almost ALL cellphones OTHER than iPhones.
I remember seeing a couple Samsung, and a few Nokia Windows phones.
