Apple’s very early iPhone 6 as well as 6 Plus sales numbers propose that everything in the Cupertino’s walled yard is rosy, as well as having actually moved 10 million devices in the initial weekend break alone, the launch in China later this month is simply visiting include in the excellent beginning that the smartphones have made. Yet there have actually been some concerns, notably “”Bendgate”, which spawned from some much-publicized issues that the bigger of both brand-new devices was unduly at risk to flexing when put in a user’s pocket. Apple has actually because dispelled the rumor, suggesting that it had actually obtained simply 9 Bendgate-related quibbles from consumers the last we listened to, and also one certain proprietor has actually looked for to pay regard to Bendgate once and also for all in a rather enjoyable video.
The guy concerned, Abood Mohamed on Facebook, determined to place the entire Bendgate palaver to the driving test in what we can only describe as a quite non-traditional experiment. In a video clip, Mohamed, which is definitely carrying a little additional timber than your average customer, continues to put the gold iPhone 6 Plus into his pocket, muffle a wooden bench, as well as walk around a little, rocking back and forth. After around 20 secs, he then draws out the device, waves it in front of the video camera, and also ends that the device does not bend under the type of pressure that the iPhone might encounter each day.
Obviously, the video clip does not actually tell us a great offer, as well as provides about as much evidence of ruggedness as those arbitrary decline driving tests. Still, we watch drop tests for entertainment as long as to view whether a gizmo can handle landing on different areas, and although Mohamed’s clip competes less compared to a min, it’s still quite darned amusing.
Just like Antennagate, which, unlike Bendgate, was a actual problem influencing a significant variety of early iPhone 4 adopters, it’s most likely that this mini online storm will soon pass, and also both iOS and also Android fanboys will locate a new topic to tiff over.
Some people take this business extremely directly certainly, and offered the amount of inappropriate language (as well as hand motions) included in this video, it seems that our close friend Abood is quite protective of his latest purchase:
