The iPhone vs. Android debate has been going on for years and now, with the release of the iPhone 6 and 6 plus, the fight is picking up steam. The new iPhones released in 10 countries Friday September 19 and since then, people have been waiting in line wherever they can buy the phones. Over the past weekend alone, Apple sold a record of 10 million phones. But what’s all the hype really about?
Many android users have been saying that the new iPhone design is something that Samsung has been doing for years. Obviously the two leading companies in cell phones are fighting for the crown but is it really safe to say that Apple copied Samsung? Well Samsung thinks it is. In a new ad for the Galaxy Note 4, Samsung throws major shade at the iPhone 6 and 6 plus.
Recently, Apple is under even more criticism with customers complaining that their iPhone 6’s are bending. Yes, bending. In a video on YouTube, review channel Unbox Therapy did the iPhone 6 Plus Bend Test.
Now, I’m sure you can see that in order to bend the phone, it took him a lot of strength and obviously you wouldn’t purposely try to bend your phone so, does it matter? Well, before the video went viral, people were posting pictures of the phones bending just by being in their pocket. Cue the Apple bashing by Android users.
So, is the iPhone 6 and 6 plus really worth all the hype? Without a doubt, the new iPhone looks super sleek but there is a possibility of the phone bending. Samsung users have commented saying that their Galaxies never bent regardless of the fact that they have equal lengths and widths to that of the iPhones.
Is this problem at the fault of Apple or the customers who choose to put their phone in their pockets and sit on them. If you’re paying hundreds of dollars for a phone, it only makes sense that you should be more careful but to what extent?
