iPhone fails again: devices bend in your pocket

It seems Apple once again failed to manufacture a new iPhone without at least one significant issue. The iPhone 4 suffered from antenna issues, the iPhone 5 had chipping/scratching problems and now reports are hitting the web that the iPhone 6 Plus is very susceptible to bending.

A small but growing number of iPhone 6 Plus adopters complains their device is bending during normal pocket travel. There were some reports about bending smartphones in the past but the number of complaints about bending iPhones is unprecedented. DailyTech speculates the long size and thinness of the new iPhone may be to blame for it. It's also possible that Apple didn't spend enough money to get exotic high-strength aluminium alloys and others claim overheating (especially when carried in a pocket) may also be leading to some loss of rigidity in the metal.

Not really what you would expect from a $750 phone.
The issue is growing quite heated on MacRumors' Forums, with some Apple fans going as far as to accuse those posting pictures of being imposters, who purposefully damaged their devices in an attempt to defame Apple.

Indeed, many are asking -- should Apple really get the credit for the achievement of creating a $650 USD+ smartphone that folds neatly into a more compact origami-like arrangement in as little as two days?
