    Re: News - iPhone 6 Plus costs $16 more to produce, demands $100 premium

    My old Note 1 (5.3" screen) lasted a good two years in my pockets without any bending and I wasn't particularly careful with it (use to have a large wallet with a large coin pocket next to it most days). Seems quite poor to me for a £600+ phone...

    5.5" G3 for me, and I don't have problems sticking it in either fleece or trouser pockets. As you say, each to their own - e.g. my eldest kid slags off my slabphone compared to her svelte HTC One M8 Mini

    Definitely QOTW material, although why am I reminded of:

    Ha ha.

    Bendgate makes me laugh. How can a company like Apple make such a mistake like a device that bends in your pocket. I would fire the quality and design departments. One for designing a bad phone and the other for letting it slip through the net and making it to consumers.

    My note 3 has been in my pocket daily for nearly a year and has no signs of it bending.

    They can spin it so that a "non-bendable" iphone is a premium feature

    To each their own, I suppose.
    Before I make any comment, regarding this article, it's not unexpected really, just a reinforcement of poor value for money that some Android uses benefit from. Some premium model Android phones can be just as expensive so it's just whatever works for yourself.

    Regarding the iPhone 6+ bending, it's just a disappointment as whilst I've never bought an iphone out of personal preference, I have recognised them as a company of often well built products. They have there issues ( phone signal with hand placement on the 4? and the finish on the metal being at best temporary on the 5 ) but structurally very well built. I think Apple could face some serious problems regarding this and look forward to how they manage these complaints.

    And finally, a small story.

    About a year and a half ago I purchased a HTC One M7 (IMO, a beautiful, well built, well specced phone with some very nice features) it has a 4.7 inch 1080p display. At this time the iPhone 5 was about six months old but most of my friends still had the iPhone 4s. One friend in particular, we will name him Karl, scoffed at my phone when he asked what I'd upgraded to from a busted up old samsung galaxy ace. And all he did for the next 2/3 months whenever I saw him was throw digs about my 'stupidly large' phone. On launch day he got an iPhone 6 (...with a 4.7 inch screen). He came over to my house a couple days ago and wouldn't stop talking about his lovely new phone, I don't blame it, it's a nice phone. My girlfriend showed up and had to send a text on her phone ( her Nexus 4 had been stolen ages ago so she was using a Z1 compact from her insurance ) and he banged on for another 10 minutes about how her 'stupidly small' phone looks like a toy. I had great delight in reminding him of earlier discussions about phone sizes.

    And then he started on his retina display vs my 'stupid cr@ppy' lcd. It was fun whilst he remained but he got annoyed at me for arguing with him after a while so he left.

    Moral of the story, I've finally worked out Karl is a d****e-bag. Iphone users, enjoy your phone, just don't be Karl!
    I would have pointed out that your old phone had a 4.7 full hd screen to his new 4.7 screen that's only hd ready, you would have had a higher poi screen and at the end of the day the retina display is still only an lcd screen, it's not as though it's an amoled like samsung displays. That shoulda put him in his place.

    Not a dig at Apple fans owner of 4,4s,5.5s and will probably get the six

    Re: News - iPhone 6 Plus costs $16 more to produce, demands $100 premium

    Just to put this whole bending thing in perspective..

    It's a fairly uncommon problem that affects a range of smartphones made out of metal, and is in no way unique to Apple (nor are they the first to suffer). Google will give you all the links, but it's been widely reported to happen to all of these:

    iPhone 5/5s
    Samsung Galaxy S4
    HTC One
    HTC evo (very common)
    Sony Xperia Z1
    Some of the newer Lumias

    This is just being blown out of all proportion because it's Apple. I've no interest in the iPhone 6, but the Apple bashing is a little unfair as usual!

    Are you just pulling those phones out of thin air?

    In our company we have a mix of all of the above and out of 250 users none have had bending problems.

    My Z1 doesn't bend without me trying to bend it. In fact, I bet if you didn't try to none of those phoned would bend. The 6+ bends from general use as well

    No, thats a qualified list and if you google each of those phone names and "bending" you'll find countless examples. Even Sky news featured the story this morning and made the point that this happens to any metal phone and is not restricted to the iPhone 5/6.

    Re: News - iPhone 6 Plus costs $16 more to produce, demands $100 premium

    While I have a LOT of problems with Apple, this isn't one of them.

    We all buys CPUs and GPUs that are sold "defective" so that they can charge a premium for the "working" ones. I see this as no different. A premium model that essentially costs the same as the basic model to make.

    I do find it utterly hilarious how Apple made the U-turn on large phones though. The amount of Apple fanboys that used to take the piss at anyone who had a phone larger than a 3S and are now walking around the the iPhone 6 "Dom Joly edition" (Plus)........a phone must be fully usable within the reach of the thumb!

    To be fair to Karl, Apple have been the ones ensisting that you dont need a big phone.

    People are consistently victims of Apples BS marketing. Otherwise intelligent people seem to adjust their attitude to be in line with whatever the attitude of Apple is and I cant wrap my head around it.

    It's a fairly uncommon problem that affects a range of smartphones made out of metal, and is in no way unique to Apple (nor are they the first to suffer). Google will give you all the links, but it's been widely reported to happen to all of these:

    iPhone 5/5s
    Samsung Galaxy S4
    HTC One
    HTC evo (very common)
    Sony Xperia Z1
    Some of the newer Lumias

    This is just being blown out of all proportion because it's Apple. I've no interest in the iPhone 6, but the Apple bashing is a little unfair as usual!
    How is it unfair? If you market the phone as the best thing in the world since man invented the wheel then you better deliver something that surpasses all other devices in every aspect. Apple repeatedly get bashed because in reality, they are behind the times in terms of technology, features and their build quality is bang average time and time again.

    The level of 'bashing' is directly proportionate to the amount of hype Apple creates.

    That was back then - and Jobs was right. I didn't read the whole statement, but unless he said sort of in the next few years then I'd have been inclined to agree with him. At the time, no one would have since all phones were small but now they're slowly getting bigger (unfortunately).

    He was way off, even back then. He was saying 3.5" is sufficient and even 4" and 4.5" was too big and people wouldnt buy into it... they did!
    Besides this, peoples hands haven't changed significantly in the last... few thousand years so his statement doesn't really have a time limit.
    Its like when Ballmer was saying people wouldn't buy an iPhone because it would be too expensive. Its just a dumbass statement to make because if you are wrong, you are guaranteed to be forced into making your business take a hypocritical, 'me too' direction when you have to catch up. Fortunately for Apple, they have a whole internet full of reviewers with their tongue's fighting for a spot in Apples posterior so it doesn't matter what they do, its always right.
