Consumer Reports Bend Test Pits iPhone 6 Plus Against the Competition

Sure, Apple’s only received nine reports of bent iPhones and we highly doubt you’ll have any reason to worry about your own, but do Apple’s new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus handle the pressure any better than competing models? Consumer Reports put that to the test today, pitting the new iPhones against other giant handsets including the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

Using an Instron compression test machine to squash the devices, the publication added force in 10 pound increments until the phones were permanently bent. Surprisingly, the Galaxy Note 3 came out on top, withstanding an entire 150 pounds of force before giving out, while the iPhone 6 Plus took only 90 pounds. The LG G3 had a strong showing at 130 pounds, and the HTC One M8 and iPhone 6 came in last by withstanding just 70 pounds of pressure. Still, as the publication points out, even pressing down with 70 pounds requires quite a bit of effort: roughly the same as trying to break four full-size wooden pencils simultaneously. Don’t try it with your bare hands. [Consumer Reports]
