Um, Should The iPhone 6 Plus Be Able To Bend Like This?

Um, Should The iPhone 6 Plus Be Able To Bend Like This?

We're no hardware engineers, but this can't be good.

The new iPhone 6 Plus can be severely bent with nothing more than a couple bare hands, as seen in a new video uploaded to YouTube on Tuesday. And no, it doesn’t automatically spring back into place afterward.

Here’s the full video, created by review channel Unbox Therapy:

Of course, you shouldn’t try to purposefully bend a phone that you just spent hundreds of dollars on. But people have also been reporting that the newest iPhones are bending out of place without much effort at all.

Apple didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

"Bottom line here is it's an aluminium phone, it is going to bend if you apply enough pressure," Unbox Therapy's Lewis Hilsenteger said in the video after mangling the shiny new device. Later, he claimed on Instagram that he tried to bend the phone back to its normal state. It doesn’t appear to have gone so well. The screen cracked.
