Does the new iPhone have a bending problem or is it just a hoax?

I haven't heard of this happening to anyone I know.

There was a lot of back and forth on this. The last I saw, there were some problems with the original video that caused people to think it was fake.

But Apple did admit that a very few people were able to bend the phones, and there's even a video of kids going into an Apple store and bending the display units.

Basically, I think you have to go out of your way to bend the phone. It won't happen with normal use.

No one would bent his new iPhone on purpose unless something goes wrong with his mind.

I think it's a big crock of you-know-what. There will always be stupid people that do dumb things with their consumer electronics. It's as certain as the sun setting.

If you're careful then you shouldn't have any problem with any consumer electronics.
