The YouTuber who set the world ablaze by bending the iPhone 6 Plus is back.
Lewis Hilsenteger of Unbox Therapy has a new video out in which he tries to bend the regular iPhone 6 like the Plus. Those who are actually worried about their iPhone’s bendability will be glad to see that the 6 holds its shape much better than its larger sibling. And you’d basically need some kind of power tool to bend the iPhone 5s.
Hilsenteger also tries bending some iPhone competitors, and the most durable smartphone might surprise you.
We’re into day two of #Bendgate, and countless mainstream news outlets around the world have started covering Hilsenteger’s original video. It’s like Antennagate all over again, expect worse because we are seriously questioning why phones will bend under pressure.
Hilsenteger himself has been giving interviews to these news outlets all day, cementing his name in the history books as the man who bent the iPhone with his bare hands.
