Loyal iPhone6 users are learning the hard way that anything sleek and slim is not a good thing. Apple holds the rank when it comes to “Breakability” but does it score high when it comes to “Bendability”? Perhaps not! With so many complaints pouring in from its users on social media platforms that iPhone 6 bends in their tight pant pockets. Apple has been plagued by glitches which include the bending problem and its update issues. However, brands were not far from taking digs at Apple, in order to market their own brands with the #BendGate trend on Twitter.
Take a look at how Tweeple reacted to Apple’s blunder
1 – Don’t try bending your NOKIA. Ever!
“@MKBHD: Took #bendgate to the next level and broke my hand today…” Were you trying to bend the Nokia 3310? 😉 Video on voice commands?
