Here are our 7 favorite responses, pictures, videos, and memes to come from Apple’s latest drama… share your favorites in the comments!
#7 Kit Kat: Gimme a break
The official @KitKat twitter account gave 4.4 out of 5 droids of support by letting Apple know the deal, complete with their memorable company slogan.
#6 Tim Cook Fashion Line
Rather than fix the iPhone’s woes, some users suggested Apple’s Tim Cook could succeed by using it’s marketing prowess to popularize former fashion fads. I’m not sure if the iPhone is 2 Legit 2 Bend, but whenever I see another “durability” test I think to myself “Please hammer don’t hurt ’em”.
#5 Conan O’Brien imagines Samsung Ad
It didn’t take long for late night comedians to get in on the action – and we expect it to continue. Here was Conan’s first bend, er… stab at it.
#4 Galaxy Note 3 Ad
This fan-made print advertisement for the Galaxy Note 3 shows the iPhone 6 literally bowing at the feet of its rival, with the help of some strategically placed joints. Man… that new iPhone must have gone through Yoga training!
#3 LG Doesn’t bend, it flexes
The gorgeous new curved screen on the LG G Flex gave the company the perfect opportunity to toss it right in Apple’s face. Because, you know, their screen bends on purpose.
#2 iPhone 6 Repair Kit
Get bit by the iPhone 6 bend bug? Mobile Fun has just the accessory you need to straighten it out!
#1 iPhone 6 Dali Edition
This one, from @PhoneDesigner, is my personal favorite. It’s a hilarious concept, incorporates another cultural icon, the picture is beautifully composed, and it’s tastefully done. Great job, PhoneDesigner!
