You do not have to be the Incredible Hulk in order to bend the brand new iPhone 6 Plus, and with reports coming in of the larger sized latest generation smartphone from Apple actually bending even when placed in the front pocket of your pants or jeans, another question arises – can the iPhone 6 Plus actually bend using one’s bare hands alone? The outcome to that question can be seen in the video above.

While the iPhone 6 Plus ends up being noticeably bent near the buttons, making this one painful experiment, the entire ordeal would require a fair amount of effort from the handset’s owner. Of course, you are not going to sweat buckets while you are at it, but it will eventually get out of shape after a while.

The glass of the iPhone 6 Plus looks to be working just fine despite the bent handset, and even if it will not end up out of shape from normal use, it is definitely cause for concern – as you never hear of this happening back in the days of Nokia where all of their handsets were made out of plastic. Needless to say, things are very different these days, and considering how aluminum is rather malleable by itself, a handset with the iPhone 6 Plus’ footprint would also make it more susceptible to bending compared to the smaller sized iPhone 6. Perhaps this might help those who have yet to make a purchase decision between either handset to settle on an answer.
