iPhone 6 Plus customers are complaining that the ultra thin device is bending in their back pockets. Not a huge deal, since iPhone 5s, and other phones have been known to be flexible but it’s probably an inconvenience.
Reports Mac Rumors:
As highlighted in a few reports shared in the MacRumors forums, a small but growing number of iPhone 6 Plus owners have reportedly bent their phones after carrying the devices in their pockets just days after launch. In one instance, a new iPhone 6 Plus was bent during a day of dancing, dining, and driving to a wedding:
“Yesterday, I left at 10am with the iPhone in my left FRONT pocket of my suit pants. I drove 4 hours to a wedding, which also involved a lot of sitting during dinner etc but also 2-3 hours of dancing. I left at 2am and went to bed, driving home 4 hours back.
So in total, the 6 Plus was about 18 hours in my pocket while sitting mostly.
As I lay it on the coffee table and sat down on the couch to relax from the drive (yes, sitting again ), I saw the reflection of the window in the iPhones slightly distorted.”
It sucks to buy a brand new phone and have it end up “slightly distorted” right? Well there’s good news. One solution to this problem would be to take the damn phone out before sitting down, but that could get annoying. Especially if you’re on a bus or train.
Another way to remedy iPhone issues is to invest in a pair of vintage wide-leg jeans:
