    I am for once happy for samsung, this will definitely make the s6 and samsung more popular no matter in a good or bad way. Laugh everyone, share to everywhere you want, make this viral, and I%u2019m sure this will make the s6 launch even more popular. :D

    And in case any Samsung employees are trolling, if you use my quoted text, I'll sue you...


     

    Well, I think screen scratches and color being weird is way worse publicity that the supposed bending issue, because the latter one will undoubtably hit few people (if any), while the color and scratches hint at serious quality control or packing issues!

    When people hear this kind of thing, especially the weird color stuff, they wonder if this will happen after the warranty runs out... I would. For a $200 device, you could live with that chance I suppose, but not for a $800 device. Samsung is in a bind, cause if they say they'll replace all problems that occur within say next 2 years, this will just give more press to the naysayers.

    Yeah blaming FedEx and UPS and even T-Mobile is pretty pathetic. The screen isn't going to scratch like that because of how the phone is handled by a delivery guy. :rolleyes:

    Apparently all cellphone manufacturers have an arrogant attitude and have designed "it" wrong, RaptorOO7:

    You can spot a troll from the way they keep posting the same discredited memes.

    This just shows how much Samsung copies the iPhone. They even copied our exclusive bending feature! :lol:

    Well done.

    Quite sad really. Let's copy the competition right down to 'bendgate' and get the same numbers per square inch of pressure. Yeah Samsung you guys are at the 'best'. If it ever went to trial for ripping of design guarantee Koh can see no similarities.

    It'll be very interesting to see the post count by tomorrow. Then we'll really know just how true the idea that "bad news about Apple sells" while "bad news about Android gets quickly forgotten".


     

    Now closing in on 1 million views.

    I love how the Squaretrade video says it's not "bendgate 2" even though the S6 Edge bends at the same pressure, plus a cracked screen. Proving once again that "bendgate" is not an objective measure of deformation or percentage of people with the problem, but a hyped, fabricated and perpetuated online meme.
