I've got a heavy duty vice and a 36" pipe wrench...
I going get a custom cast iron case for my iPhone 5S just to protect it from people like you!
Apple is ahead again with the bendable smartphone - iPhone 6 Plus! Way to go Apple!
I still eventually cracked the back of my 3GS (9 month for the first small crack), now after 5 years, its barely holding the back inside (so many very long cracks ;-).
A child laughing hysterically, or doing some crazy shit, a hundred million hits. Any animal doing something crazy enough, especially if its a cat, gets 100 million hits.
Such good examples... comparing cat videos to videos about items, that may or may not be defective, sold by a company that has investors.
Which therefore tells us exactly what we need to know about this entire shindig.
I wonder why you claimed otherwise, though.
Its EXACTLY the same because this clip is a freak show, pure entertainment without any real value whatsoever, just like the cat videos.
If its defective, its not a Youtube videos from a random sources that will tell you. If you rely on Youtube videos from just about anyone for "news" or "analysis", well then I can't help you at all.
If you are interested in real data, you'll advocate for that instead. Write Apple. Ask reputable sites to review the bend resistance of different phones in a scientific way. I'm all for that. Though I myself don't expect a long aluminum phone put into tight pants on which I sit to actually survive. Why, this evaluation? Maybe because of my background in material and mechanical engineering... Or maybe it is just common sense.
Bring back the 3.5 inch iPhone. It is ideal for your pockets.
Lesson of the week:
Do not put your iPad mini or phablet in your back/front pocket.

What a waste of fucking time. This 'bendgate' crap and all the damn tech sites eating it up is ridiculous.
Because this has not happened in any respect whatsoever.
Why on earth do they need to address it? Addressing it my making it plastic or much thicker? I can't really follow you.
Right.. Legitimate... I'll only believe its legitimate when someone, somewhere actually does a real news story on it and does not just post a link to a youtube video or recite a few second hand anecdotes as click bait. Since most journalists these days just report whatever's on the twitter feed, my expectation that his will happen is a bit low.
Right now, it is not really a news story in the traditional sense of the word; though the net has kind of perverted the value of that word so much with sourceless factoids filled with "truthiness" that it is only clinging to its original meaning with its bare teeth.
