Oh - yes, agreed on the 6/6+ ranking. Who knows what the HTC is made of, or designed to withstand, so it's just an isolated data point, but with regard to the iPhones it suggests that Apple made more effort to strengthen the 6+ than the 6+.
Nice explanation. You should post more often than once every three years...
Why is that odd?
I'm also impressed that they followed up. What will be interesting now is whether any significant reports of bending in pockets (the original alleged concern) actually surface, since it's not really relevant if the only way to break them is deliberately. Given the measured required forces for all these types of phone, including the weakest (HTC), it would seem that even if it were possible to exert that much force within a pants pocket, serious discomfort, if not actual...
That's not going to be the failure point in that bending mode. The axis in question is parallel to the back plate, so that plate provides very little rigidity. The resistance to that bending mode is provided by the structural components orthogonal to the axis - the sides of the phone and the internal reinforcing struts.
Not at all - I think he said that he won't stoop to the level of rational discussion of the actual issues when he can just make snide remarks instead.
Polymer composites have come a long way in terms of strength-to-weight ratio, and it's no surprise that a plastic phone can perform well in these tests. The design choice of aluminum is unlikely to be based on strength at all these days - more on the aesthetics of the device - and the trick is making Al structures strong enough.
I doubt that they adjusted, because the increased moment due to the length is real - in terms of how it affects load to failure. The reduced load to failure, relative to the 5, is not entirely explained by the increased length though- the remainder is probably just the design change in device thickness, material thickness etc.. The 6+ having higher load to failure than the 6 is curious in that context.
Don't think so. Odo is clearly a Poe (and quite funny at times). Frost has simply become a run-of-the-mill troll with no pretence of serious discussion.
Ah - so your definition of weak is that it can be bent using ones hands. Is that correct? Would you happen to have a source for that definition? Other than the guy in the movie, of course. I'm not being defensive - I'm attacking the total lack of any basis for your assertions.What's amusing, by which I mean quite pathetic, is that now that there are actual data to demonstrate that the phone is comparable to others in its class, you and others are now making stupid...
