iPhone 6 Plus gets damaged after staying in a front pocket
iPhone 6 Plus owners complain about weak construction
Apple’s new iPhones are thinner and lighter than previous generations and though this feature has been advertised as an advantage, users show how thin and unstable the aluminum body is. The problem is more visible in the larger iPhone 6 Plus which can be easily bent and damaged by just staying a couple of hours in tight jeans’s front pocket.
This major flaw has become a hot topic on the social media, where a growing number of users are posting pictures of permanently damaged iPhones. The situation becomes even worse if users try to straighten the phone because the pressure can crack the display.
Let’s say it once more, it seems that even a small amount of pressure caused by sitting, dancing, or walking with a phone in a front pocket can permanently damage the device. The weak point of the construction seems to be at the top left side just below the volume rocker where most of the smartphones have been twisted.
iPhone 6 Plus may have been a victim of the elegant design, and this large aluminum unibody is relatively unstable compared with completion. Samsung’s Note 3 for example is made of plastic, and this may be just the right decision for a phablet. Two video tests show how vulnerable to pressure the iPhone 6 Plus and the Note 3 are. Whereas Apple’s new product can bend easily, the Note 3 shows much more flexibility during the test. The smaller 4.7 inch iPhone 6 should be more durable in theory than the 5.5 inch model, but we suggest you are also buying a protective case.
