iPhone 6 Plus: Bend Test

YouTube: Using a four-point bend fixture one hundred pounds of force was applied to the center of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, the Apple iPhone 6 Plus, and the iPhone 5s. How much did they bend? Here are the results:

  • Samsung Galaxy Note 3: 4.5mm
  • Apple iPhone 6 Plus: 3.25mm
  • Apple iPhone 5s: 1.75mm

Conclusion? The Galaxy Note 3 is made of plastic, so it bent more, but rebounded to its original shape. The iPhone 6 Plus, because it is made of aluminum, did not rebound and stayed bent. And is more prone to bending than the iPhone 5s.
