As soon as the iPhone 6 Plus was launched, it got caught into “Bendgate” dilemma. It was so widespread that the issue got its own hashtag. Samsung’s latest answer to iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus has also caught in Bendgate of its own.
Bendgate has been one of the hot issues discussed over the cloud for quite some time. Internet was flooded with videos showing people trying really hard to bend Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus. But like many other issues on the ‘net’, Bendgate would eventually die down on its own. If you’re wondering how Samsung’s new Galaxy S6 Edge performs under pressure, here’s the answer.
SquareTrade, an extended warranty service provider for consumer electronics and appliances, shows in a break-ability stress test video that Samsung’s Galaxy S6 Edge bends faster than iPhone 6, but is as bendable as an iPhone 6 Plus.
According to SquareTrade, 110 pounds of pressure is enough to bend both the iPhone 6 Plus and Galaxy s6 Edge. The main difference between two flagship smartphones, though, is the display of Galaxy S6 Edge actually cracked with the applied pressure, while iPhone 6 Plus merely bent.
By further applying the pressure to the devices, the Galaxy S6 started to bend faster than the iPhone 6 Plus. Samsung Galaxy S6 hit its breaking point at 149 lbs of pressure, while the iPhone 6 Plus survived 179 lbs of force.
It’s worth mentioning here that Samsung’s latest flagship is protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 4 for screen and it’s said to have a fifty percent stronger than any other smartphone on the market. However, the curved edges found on Galaxy S6 also make the device more sensitive to intense pressure
