110 pounds of pressure appears to be the magical number for both Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s iPhone 6 Plus and the SAMSUNG ELECT LTD(F) (OTCMKTS:SSNLF) Galaxy S6 Edge.

Not Only Bend But Break?

A new test conducted by third-party warranty firm Squaretrade, showed that not only did the Galaxy S6 Edge bend but it broke leaving the potential that owners of the new phone could have a pocket full of glass instead of a bent phone. Much worse.

Samsung cracked many jokes about the bendable nature of the iPhone 6 Plus, but now finds itself in a worse position as the Galaxy S6 Edge handled testing worse then the iPhone 6 Plus. Samsung wasn’t alone as the new HTC One M9 broke completely at 120 lbs of pressure.

    It is well documented that iPhone 6 bends not in the middle like the rest of the phones, but around the volume button. How much force can iPhone bear there before permanently bending? Lets see:


    Yeah 30 kg of force, while Galaxy S6 can hold 50kg. Almost double.
    That is why even kids could bend the iPhone in the Apple Store.
