    Who cares. The 6P failed it also, and I still have it, and surprise surprise it's not bent in half

    Yeah this.

    My 6P survived falls.... my kids accidentally jumping on it on bed, and more.... IIRC, it also failed Jerry's test.

    All my phones have been used with cases and a screen protector. All of my phones survived their lifetimes without breaking up. I'm not really concerned about that video.

    I wouldn't read too much into those videos. so it's good to know where the phone would break if said person applied direct pressure to that spot on the device. but it won't deter me from getting the device at all.

    I got new tires on my car and they failed the ol' "utility knife in the sidewall test" too. Dang it.

    Has he always done so much editorializing? I thought he just gave ratings re. how easy the phones were to break.

    My macbook's lid dented when I threw it on the ground as hard as I could once, too, and then when I burned the screen it took 22 seconds to burn which is only .003 more than my old laptop, so that's an ~utter fAiL~, oh and when I vomited on it the vomit got under the keys and into the casing so it didn't even survive my vomit test!!! FAILUREEEE. Voting with my wallet and NOT buying a new macbook!

    I mean, he barely applied any pressure to the phone and it bent in half and lost its water resistance.

    The LG G5 was heavily scrutinized with its hardware weaknesses and deficiencies but everyone is willing to give a pass to Google for some reason.

    First off, he's a body builder. No one's exactly sure of his "practices" in that area, so yeah, I'd say his bend tests are skewed to say the least. I've had no issues with my 6P, and now that I've replaced the battery, it feels like new again. I'm currently at 30% with 5 hours SOT, when before I'd be lucky to get 4. No bends or scratches in sight. So I hardly consider him an expert.

    FWIW, the Pixel 2 actually did much better on the bend test than the Nexus 6p did, yet mine (like others' above) survived two years of use without any adverse effects. As long as you don't take a razor blade to the back, or try your hardest to flex the phone it should be OK!

    Skinny jeans will do the same thing to the phone.

    His videos are pretty entertaining and I enjoy watching him go to town on the latest phone...that said they aren't all that useful apart from rare cases where he finds out if a screen is easier to scratch than it should be. Really not worried about any of this.

    If your pair of jeans can do the things in this video, you have one INCREDIBLE pair of jeans, sir. The phone breaking would be the least of your worries; your jeans might literally MURDER you. Get out of there!

    But seriously, jeans are not going to do anything in this video. If you're saying you sit on the phone in your pocket of skin-tight jeans, and it will bend at that antenna point? Over time, doing it over and over, perhaps. But why are you sitting on the phone then? Stop sitting on the phone. It's not going to just snap in half the moment you trip with your phone in your pocket, and if it does, it's a fluke that could happen to me with my 6P in my pocket these past 2 years, too...but somehow I've managed not to get a single scratch or dent or ding on this thing. In fact, I've gone from a Blackberry Bold 9000 --> Motrola Atrix (original) --> Galaxy Nexus HSPA --> Nexus 5 --> LG G4 --> Blackberry Priv --> Nexus 6P ---> As of tomorrow night a Pixel 2. Over the course of age 19 to today, 28. And I have never ONCE bent a phone in half or snapped it or burned the screen or chipped away its fingerprint sensor

    I know people can accidentally break the phone, and yeah that appears to be the "weak point" of the HW where it would give in if enough force is applied...but as usual, enough force is never going to be applied for anything in Jerry's video to take place in any normal situation in life at all. BUT FLY THE FLAGS AND THROW THE MUFFINS OUT, JERRY CAN DESTROY ANOTHER PHONE OH GODDD!

    JerryRigEverything likes to do this with every phone release because it gets huge views and publicity for his channel. It's like a news channel or article; what sells? Sex and violence or just anything controversial. Okay, let's run with that then.

    I wonder if you all would have the same response if this were the iPhone. That bending is problematic.

    No..... Just no skinny jeans won't do that at all. I had my 6P for 2 years in my back pocket, of I would say relatively tight jeans, and it never bent in half. His tests are stupid, and they in no way represent any type of real world usage.

    Yes we would. No one just takes a razor blade to the back, or trys to burn the screen with a lighter, or attempts to bend they phone in half. Maybe your stuck in a robbery type situation, and the guy holding you up says he will leave you alone if you bend your phone as hard as you can. If it bends he gets your money if not, your screwed.....🙄🙄🙄🙄

    The Nexus 6P faired much much worse in his video of that phone to the point he called it junk because he could bend it in half, yet I didn't hear of any issues of people having their 6Ps break due to the "flaw" he points out. Therefore these tests should be taken with a grain of salt.

    It took me about 3 seconds of searching to find this thread:

    Don't get me wrong - I think it's much ado about nothing but you'd think after all the hubbub about the iPhone 6 bending, manufacturers would be more careful.
