Is the iPhone 6 too Thin? Users Showing Bent Devices

The iPhone 6 is breaking all records. It sold 4 million units on the first day and over 10 million over the first weekend when it went on sale in 10 countries.

As we reported on during the launch, the iPhone 6 is the thinnest flagship smartphone out there. Apple might have pushed it too far as the first users have reported displays bending just by having the iPhone 6 Plus in their pocket:

This user had the iPhone 6 Plus in his pocket for about 18 hours.

The owner of this iPhone 6 didn’t specify how long the phone was in the pocket but you can clearly see it being bent.

According to owner of the below device, he “lightly bumped” into someone and this is how the iPhone 6 looked after. Apple is replacing the device but you have to wonder how “light” that bump was.

After the launch of the iPhone 4 in 2010 Apple had Antennagate, are we going to see Bentgate with the iPhone 6? Time will tell, so far only a few users have reported on having issues with bent iPhone 6 devices.
