yeah they have been finding out these people are paid by Samsung. The original video on bending iphones had all sorts of Samsung ad attached the video. Samsung can never step low enough.

As much as I hate Apple, I find this story highly suspect. The story doesn't add up. I can't see how anyone can generate the amount of force required to bend that phone almost 90 degrees. Definitely not from being bounced around in a rickshaw...no matter how big the bump or how fast that rickshaw can go.....maybe if the rickshaw was shoved off a cliff.

I also find it suspect the video only has a small snippet of the phone with ice/water poured on it but doesn't zoom out to show all the others standing around it. I wonder why pictures of his pants haven't been posted with the burn damage nor pictures of his thigh or the medical report.

Well, if you were involved in a billion-dollar lawsuit I'm sure you'd do whatever you can to discredit them... But then again I hate Samsung, ironically my very first phone was a Samsung and it caught fire 2 weeks into owning it, and their TouchWiz corruption of Android gets confusing.

I've carried a new iPhone since initial delivery and have had no such issue. Not even a SLIGHT curvature, let a lone one that looks like it was done on the edge of a bench or something.

it's just pathetic how much time and energy haters will put into something they hate.

And how it obviously gets to people and makes them rage on the internet about said haters.

No one really gives a flying &#^$, buy whatever phone you want.
