LG, Samsung, HTC Nestle and Blackberry mock Apple`s iPhone 6 Plus #bendgate on pictures, video and messages on Twitter:
Blackberry CEO John Chen may have avoided talking about the iPhone directly during the Passport smartphone’s launch event, but it was pretty obvious what he meant when he encouraged people to try and bend the new square BlackBerry model.
Apple defended against reports that its largest iPhone bends easily in people's pockets, saying warping is "extremely rare" through normal use.
Since going on sale Friday, Apple said only nine customers have contacted the company about a bent iPhone 6 Plus—the larger and more expensive of its two new iPhones. Apple said both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus passed a series of tests meant to check the products' strength and durability through everyday use.
The company said the new iPhones are made from a custom grade of anodized aluminum, which is tempered for extra strength. Apple said the phones also feature stainless steel and titanium inserts to reinforce high-stress locations.
Apple is addressing reports that the new iPhone 6 Plus was bending when people sat with the phone in their pockets. Videos of people bending the jumbo-sized iPhone with their hands quickly made the rounds on social media.
