Consumer Reports wasn’t buying into the mania around BendGate — the uproar that the iPhone 6 Plus might be bendable in your pocket — so the publication put the phone and several others to the test. It found that the iPhone 6 Plus isn’t nearly as malleable as some videos make it seem.
Consumer Reports used a “three-point flexural test” on the iPhone 6 Plus, in which the phone is gripped by a machine at either end and force is applied to the top. (Apple invited CNBC inside its testing facility after bending phone complaints began surfacing, and it apparently uses the same test.)
