After reports from users of Apple’s latest (and biggest) flagship falling victim to a pair of skinny jeans, the newest trend in tech was the bend test. Everything from the Moto X, HTC One M8, to the Galaxy Note 3 were subject to the new stress test. With a growing number of YouTubers
brave crazy enough to destroy their smartphone for a handful of views, we even saw Samsung construct their own 200lb robot butt, smashing the Galaxy Note 4 repeatedly in a video to show off its durability.
The original iPhone 6 Plus video — which can be credited with sparking the worldwide #bendgate phenomenon — has seen over 50 million views since it went live and now the same guy (Unbox Therapy) is back yet again. Looking to cash in another check, he takes the all new Samsung Galaxy Note 4 for a spin, putting it through his very scientific stress test which simply involves applying pressure with his thumbs until something breaks. Everybody’s gotta have a schtick. Fast forward to 2:37 to skip the lengthy commentary.
