A bending pressure test on the Consumer Reports resolves the issue on #Bendgate.
Finally the reputable company stepped up and put to rest the overblown gone viral bending of the iPhone.
The test was conducted by using a Instron compression test machine to apply increments of 10 pounds of pressure center mass until the cell phone would bend. The test was conducted on models of the iPhone and competitors supported between two woodblocks. .
Here are the results that show how many pounds of pressure is forced to create a bend:
So with all this being said it might be wise to not apply more than 90 pounds of pressure at the center mass of your phone.
Newton would be proud. 😊
