Well, you putting it inside of your pocket the wrong way. That's what they mean by "under normal use" lmao.

well it should be common sense to not sit on a $700 phone 🙄

People have always been, and will continue to be idiots.

Mine has been just fine and still does not feel nearly as cheap as my S5 that i could bend pretty easily due to it just being made of plastic.

Oh and my favorite was when i was a technician all the Samsung devices that would come in with the internal OLED shattered, but the outside glass fine because people would bend the phones while sitting on them.. It's not just exclusive to iPhone 6 ladies and gentlemen

No doubt about that. I always keep my phone in my back pocket when wearing jeans, but I take it out if I want to sit down, you can call it a reflex. Its really likely to happen with any phone if you are not careful. I remember when I was working in sales and the motorola RAZR was the rage, I would get customers back all the time with cracked screens or split phones (when they put them over the pocket lip) just because they forgot their phone was there. Common sense goes a long way, but this society lacks a lot (if not all) of it. Its like someone trying to fit a Nexus 7 or an iPad mini into their back pocket (if it even fits) and then complaint because they cracked the screen when they sat down.

It should also be common sense to the manufacturers that even when not an accident, these phones do not sit on shelves or in displays all day. These are products that are highly interacted with on a daily basis. As I just posted in another thread, I have never had a problem with plastic phones in over 27 years of owning cellphones. My guess is you didn't either until some money hungry company planted in your brain that metal is better. I'm not dissing metal but, at what point to we make these products so elegant that they become overly delicate to where consumers need to watch every move they make. I have too much to worry about in my daily job and practices. I shouldn't ha...

There's a difference between bending and flexing. Bending is a property of metals, but it isn't really a property of plastic. Your phone may a have flexed, but I don't believe it bent.
