People are sitting wrong
Now if it folded in half, it would be a flip phone!
You keep a 6+ in your purse.... just like any other feminine product....
LMAO!!!! Like the iPad?
Yeah.. i watched that...
He used a hell of a lot of force to get that thing to bend.
It fit's fine in MY front pants pockets.
RORWessels obviously has no understanding of physics.
LMAO you guys are slaying me!
I've owned a Note 3 for over a year and a 6 Plus since Friday. No bending problems with either one yet lol.

As a new iPhone 6 Plus owner...I have to admit this is pretty troubling. I imagine keeping your phone in a case SHOULD help with this situation, but for the price of the phone this is pretty unacceptable. Hopefully Apple addresses this concern, soon, as I intend to carry my phone in my front pocket (pretty obviously).
This may be cause for Apple to supply all plus owners with a free protective case to withstand the bend...
If they don't answer to this at all, I would be really shocked. Especially considering the overwhelming number of people experiencing the issue. I've been lucky enough not to yet, but I'm definitely not taking any risks.
I used a holster for my iphone 4 and 5 for about 2 years... i was never faced with this disaster....
To each his own. I don't even wear a belt except with a suit, so I would never use a holster. Why would I if the phone fits in my pocket? That is Dork Dad fashion anyway.
Most of the Asian, who wants the 5.5 phones are tiny, and they wouldn't be putting this phone in any pocket - They carry men purses or men shoulder slings! Ethnic pun not intended! This is the fact.
And like many folks mentioned here - iPhone 6+ is not a pant pocket phone!
I put my phone in my pants pocket and it didn't bend. I'm not sure what other people are doing to force their phones into bending.
LMAO! You are wrong for that. ROTFL!

No way am I getting a Plus! Why did Apple make it?
My next iPhone is now a 6 or a 5s.
I'm with the sorry band of Marvin and T.S. who say that the 5.5" shouldn’t exist.
To all the poor suckers who have ordered or bought a Plus: thank your lucky stars for warranties.
I just chose something that was functional- I wasn't trying to make a "fashion statement"
That is exactly what I was thinking - It would be very uncomfortable to sit with any 5.5 phone in front jean pocket for a long time. Didn't anyone test this out with Samsung's phone? What is going to happen when Samsung comes out with their Mega, which is 6.2 inches? Secondly, everyone yelled and scream that Apple is going downhill as they don't have large screen phone. Now that they have one and it is breaking sales record, people are coming out with non practical stunts like this and suggesting Apple shouldn't have made this phone!
That looked like more than moderate pressure. His hands were shaking at one point. Also notice the placement of his thumbs on the note.
Idiots- serves Apple right for copying Samsung.
Except they should have used steel instead of aluminum.

He uploaded bending test for Galaxy Note 3 an hour ago.
Wow, Samsung is going to have a field day with this one
There are many who have plenty of room in your front pockets....you know who you are.
Its nice to know people are bending the phones at the Apple store. Absent a plastic film screen cover, full coverage safety goggles & leather gloves, the exploding glass & instant, bloody blindness should ID who just bought a phone the hard way, combined with store video.
The iPhone 6+ in a Defender Otter case, carried vertically in the holster on your belt should be safe. Do all the small stuff, even answer calls with the AppleWatch. Have a small bluetooth earpiece in your shirt pocket for extended calls. Just don't wear the bluetooth earpiece all the time; that's been done already. I think Apple recently patented earbuds that use your ear bone for sound. Maybe they'll look like tiny ear wicks the Feds use.
Seems like a lot of work just to use a phablet. Maybe just get a reasonably sized phone and lose all the extras is the right answer here.
