They are all fixable, but they were more wide spread than 0.0000009% (actual reported cases) of iPhones bending under "normal use" which I highly suspect that at least half of those were sat on in someone back pocket. All of which Apple are replacing for those 9 cases.

Only thing Android users know is yapping about market share and specs.

They have to justify their purchases somehow. The sales guy did say their phones where iPhone Killers and had more ghz and more screen. How else would they be able to feel good about their phones lol.

I never understood the hate for the iPhone. Could it be that is so popular? Everyone I know that has one is pretty satisfied. I mean they work, they are elegant and are fun to use. I use Intel and Geforce on my gaming rig, as bad or good as AMD maybe, I simply don't care to be on those threads talking about how awesome my components are compared to those offered my AMD.

Some people even get mad when I tell them I'm buying an iPhone, they go out of their way to get me into Android based devices. Worse than sales men. So Far iOS works very well for me, until the time comes that it doesn't I'll consider a switch.

Honestly those 9 cases are only the beginning. It's like if Toyota had an issue with cruise control. Because you haven't encountered the problem doesn't erase the possibility.

So I'm supposed to care for my phone like it were my own flesh and blood? Well time to check Starbucks for any iphones getting breastfed.

The Galaxy S4 also had problems with bending while enduring "normal wear and tear" The Sony Experia Z1 also had a problem with bending.

Galaxy S4 bending with what appears to be less pressure than in that iPhone 6 bend video that everyone keeps posting.

Camera problems with the S5 (wasn't posted on OCN, what a surprise rolleyes.gif )

It also seems to have problems with charging and the screen/camera lens cracks too easily.

Any Apple product going wrong is always going to make the news because it's Apple products and it's cool to hate them while blindly ignoring the same problems with other similar non-Apple products thumb.gif

I've seen people pamper their gadgets and electronics. not just iPhones. Everywhere I look people also have cases on their phones, regardless of brand.

Reports are coming in early, and that's a good thing. if an iPhone 6+ doesn't not seem durable for an individual, then don't buy one or consider using a case. Luckily there are many alternatives.

Apple always cuts corners on their phones in my experience.I remember when the 5 came out that the aluminum paint they used on the sides of the phone would easily chip/scratch off. Not surprised that this new phone has issues. I bet for the iphone 7 the glass screen will be super fragile or something. They will find a way rolleyes.gif

This is why I said earlier that Samsung was irrelevant.

Their phones, no matter what they do, are pretty sub par.

And I was replying to a question asked specifically about the Samsung Galaxy phones.

If something exists then it's going to have problems.

See there's the irony.

An apple user prefers apple most of the time not because of the OS, but because it's made of a "premium material".

Then they go and wrap a cheap feeling case around their devices.

This is why i am not buying a case for my 6+. I love the way it feels in the hand.

I'm just going to buy Applecare and assume that I will be breaking my phone twice over the next two years. It is definitely much easier to drop than the 5, and less durable than a plastic Android phone. NBD though.
