Then I saw this yesterday...
So many people commented about their HTC M8 being made out of aluminum and not bending like that. I did have in the back of my mind wondering how my Samsung Note 3 would do under similar pressure.
And then I saw the Samsung Note 3 Bend Test followup video.
It was cool to see another broken screen on an iPhone at the beginning of the video, but my Samsung Note 3 did great in the similar test. Then today I saw +Marques Brownlee doing an explanation video of the iPhone 6 Bend Test.
I agree with +Marques Brownlee that this kind of bend would be an extreme situation to happen in someone's pocket. But you know that someone is going to cry about how their iPhone 6 got caught in the door or something crazy that we haven't heard before.
The fact is the iPhone 6 and Plus are backed with an extremely thin aluminum back that offers minimal protection to its components. Obviously there are more important parts than the screen as shown by so many using their broken iPhones for everyday use after breaking their screen. Inside an iPhone there is a circuit board that is not as strong as the aluminum back that is covering it. This brings me back to when I had a broken motherboard on one of my first laptops.
A broken iPhone will take a new meaning than having a broken screen very soon as people are going to be showing up at Apple stores with iPhone's where the screen may appear fine, but not functioning properly. Hence Apple has anticipated this happening as they have recently announce a new repair cost schedule for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. +Marques Brownlee does a great job with this video, but I wish you would have brought up this important point about the internals components of the iPhone 6 rather than almost dismissing the Bend Test that I am sure will make all iPhone 6 users feel better.
Definitely not hating on +Marques Brownlee as he is the only independent tech video blogger that I follow on YouTube because I appreciate his work.
