Phone Bending

Looks like Samsung's ridiculous strategy of poking fun at Apple has backfired again

Stress tests on handsets carried out by SquareTrade showed:

  • Both the S6 Edge and iPhone 6 Plus deformed when a force of 110lb (50kg) was applied. The screen on Samsung's phone cracked at this level, but the iPhone's did not
  • HTC's latest phone - the One M9 - did not bend until 120lb, at which * point it also broke and became unusable
  • The S6 Edge's breaking point was 149lb, at which stage it ceased to function
  • The iPhone 6 Plus stopped working at a force of 179lb

My advice to all smartphone owners worried about their phones bending remains the same: don't bend your phone. Problem solved.
