The Quick Way To Understand The iPhone 6 plus BendGate

Over the past week, a few iPhone 6 plus users have reported their iPhone 6 plus bending after experiencing long amounts of pressure in there back pockets. What many seem to forget is the fact that the 6 plus is only 6.9 millimeters thin, which basically leaves it with a protruding camera lense.

The phone is also made with aluminium, unlike other flagship phones its size it does not have a magnesium chassis. Which raises the question, If your phones are supposed to be more expensive and trusted for their build quality why did Apple make a phone out of a metal that will bend? Will a slightly thicker iPhone 6 not have been a better idea? Why is it the only phone its size without the magnesium chassis?
