Galaxy S6 Edge Fares Worse Than iPhone 6 Plus Under Bend Pressure

Stephen Hall, writing for 9to5Google on the results of a bend test conducted by SquareTrade:

The iPhone 6 Plus bends under about 110 pounds of pressure, and reached “catastrophic failure” at 179 pounds. The Galaxy S6 edge reached its bending point at the same amount of pressure as Apple’s phone, but didn’t fare nearly as well overall. The S6 screen cracked at this same bending point pressure, and saw its complete destruction at a lesser 149 pounds.

Good times, Samsung, good times. And I’m sure every publication that reported on the iPhone 6 “bendgate” will devote similar attention to this.
