what is so difficult about a iphone case? i wonder what its made out of. i mean, 7075-t6 aluminum is pretty tough stuff, yield of 65 thousand pounds an inch....
probly some dumbass used crap aluminum, no heat treating....apple has gone down hill without steve....
yet my droid has a carbon fiber base.....

edit: as far as the OP saying aluminum is soft.... some aluminum alloys are close to some steels....


Hmm, there's nothing difficult about a case... But cases doesn't protect the phones since most of them are made in rubber

I rather have a Samsung phone. If I do get an Apple product it would be an IPod Touch instead.

Haha, yeah, I saw that too...I wouldn't spend that much money on something that'll just bend in my pocket. I kinda feel sorry for the people who bought it and found out that it bends. Well, if they take care of it it shouldn't really be a problem.

You do realize that if they make a new iPod then it's going to be made in the same material as iPhone 6... Anyways, it only affects iPhone 6 Plus and not the regular iPhone due to it being 1, smaller and two more compact.

The thing is, aluminium is a soft metal and iPhone 6 plus is basically just a aluminium body and then the hardware where as other phones have a metal chassi inside them. Also, a case won't protect the phone since most of them are made in cheap materials like rubber.

Apple's next trinket to impress their hivemind of slaves. I hope it breaks when bent.


It doesn't break when it bends.... However the screen breaks if you try to bend it back, watch this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FwM4ypi3at0


Into the trash they go. Android phones ftw.

Apple charge so much for something that is worth so much less. If these claims are true then I hope it puts a lot of people off. I have had my Samsung S3 for 2 1/2 years and I have dropped it hundreds of times, put in in many pockets/bags ect and its still great and going strong. Apple are just greedy A**es and don't seem to put much effort or thought into their products. I am confused as to why anyone buys them really.

All I want is an IPod Touch and not an IPhone. I don't give a shit if it bends or not because that is all I want, far as the Apple products go. I just commented not wanting the IPhone but the IPod Touch instead.

Sorry for my rant, but yeah it had to be said. And it's with not whit, but that's just an honest mistake


I think that humanity is advancing in technology too quickly. And memyself I love my technology but sometimes I look around I see people that can't go 1 day without using technology. That kind of addiction is bad for humanity and the fact people consider it NORMAL makes it even worse. But I feel like the way we're advancing in technology we're gonna reach our limit or stumble somewhere soon.
'Cause technology is advancing too quickly.

ooh. It's bending. Is it shock-proof? Water proof?
Dude, what happened to just having a gadget that has everything and stays one of a kind.
IPhone is now on 6. How far is the number would go? Will they use roman numerals then? (i.e., iPhone XC)

Just like when they asked Homer Simpson's what an upgrade is:

Well, I have the 5s. Same metal, aluminum except it's not so thin. So much for the 6 plus hype.

There's a metal frame inside the 5S that makes it more durable. The 6+ also got a metal frame inside it..... However the metal frame doesn't make it more durable because of it's size.
