[Ars] Reports suggest the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus may bend under pressure - Page 22  

post #211 of 406
The Macbook Air is an incredible laptop. I have one from 2010 and it is still in virtually perfect condition. That said, I am almost certain they will be releasing a Retina variant in the next few months, and I would wait for that before making a purchase.

Apple shows off their own bend test: http://www.engadget.com/2014/09/25/apple-shows-off-its-own-bend-tests-for-new-iphones/?ncid=rss_truncated

Apple stress testing doesn't look very stressful at all. And for some reason, the machines look like they were thrown together in 12 hours, not like the treatment Lenovo does with their thinkpads.

A video cannot convey how much strain and stress is put on anything.

They had 60lbs of pressure applied to these phones and they went through multiple bending tests. Apple received a few complaints(9 apparently) and people made this into a headline. That's a non-story clearly motivated by bias and personal feelings. Carry on. Nothing wrong with the iPhone 6 or 6 Plus durability.

Also kinda stupid to compare laptop stress tests to phones stress tests.

It was 55lbs, not 60. Weight that was distributed across the phone, not directed at one point.

Apple's tests look sissy.

If your phone has the possibility of becoming deformed from everyday use, then it isn't durable.

Which is why we have to wait and see if the problem is consistent and to what degree. Putting it on your back pocket does nothing, can it withstand a 250LB hippie with skinny jeans? If not Apple needs to come up with a solid fix. I saw the video a few times and the dude did go out of his way to actually bend it, which means your buttock is going to feel pressure while applying pressure to the phone. I don't own an iPhone 6+, I'm not defending apple, but I'm also not just drinking the koolaid of it deforming just by being on your back pocket.

The old apple product may have more superior build quality. However, I am not quite sure that will be the same for newer one(the broadwell retina air that rumor is talking about). Steve job's Apple > Tim Cook's ones.

it kinda makes me wonder, had they use Titanium metal frame on iphone 6/6+, these wouldnt be much of an issue.

Like this stupid video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=znK652H6yQM


This dude is using so much leverage and force, his hands are shaking. Guess what, If I put that much force into my Note 3 it's seriously going to be having a bad day. The plastic case may not break, but the screen and innards may very well break.

Right.
Even just the solder connections on those SMD parts even if the phone looks fine, it doesn't mean it is. SMD solder joints are not mechanically strong connections.

When I upgraded, I got the LG g3, best phone I've ever had. When the iPhone 6 came out, I wasn't even remotely interested in buying one, I just wanted to know what it looked like out of curiosity. Once I saw it, was disappointed. I was an avid iPhone user, until I bought an android biggrin.gif
