That bendable iPhone 6 screen isn’t a feature (update)

Not sure if you want to hide your shiny new iPhone’s newfangled design in a bulky case? Maybe you should — apparently, it’s quite pliable. iPhone 6 and 6 Plus users on Twitter seem to be finding small, but noticeable bends just south of the handsets’ volume controls. Front-pocket storage is all it takes to give the handset a gentle slope, according to some users, but it can be bent other ways too. Back pockets and malicious YouTube users (video from < strong class=’StrictlyAutoTagBold’>Unbox Therapy after the break) can both bend the device to their will.

Update: Just for kicks, the same guy tried the same thing with a Galaxy Note 3, and while its plastic frame gave some squeaking under the pressure, it showed only slight warping after two attempts. There’s the difference in materials to account for, but of course we’re not surprised — we’ve seen how Samsung tests its large phones under pressure.
