A report that the iPhone 6 Plus can be bent by hand is being raised all over the world. However, since they are all non-scientific tests, it is not clear how strong the iPhone 6 Plus is.
Therefore, Consumer Reports conducted a strength test of a popular smartphone such as iPhone 6 Plus in three point bending test.
The equipment we used for the test is the back.
In the test, we first took a load of 10 pounds (about 4.5 kg) for 30 seconds and then opened once. After that, I examined the load that started loading by increasing the load by 10 pounds (about 4.5 kg) and the load that the display started peeling off.

As mentioned above, the strength test of Consumer Reports revealed that the iPhone 6/6 Plus is lower in strength than the old model iPhone 5.
Since the strength test of Consumer Reports gives a load to the center part of the smartphone, it was an advantageous condition for the iPhone 6 Plus pointed out that it is easy to bend around the volume adjustment button, so it is "stronger" than iPhone 6 There was a possibility that it was done. Also note that the criterion "deformed" is unclear, so it can not bear the load of the test results of Consumer Reports.
In any case, it is certain that "iPhone 6/6 Plus is much easier to deform than iPhone 5 against load under certain conditions."
