Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge bends and breaks under less pressure than Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus

“Remember ‘Bendgate?'” Alexis Kleinman asks for The Huffington Post.

“SquareTrade, an electronics insurance company, used its own ‘bend bot’ to put the new Samsung S6 Edge, the new HTC One M9 and the iPhone 6 Plus to the same pressure test,” Kleinman reports. “The iPhone 6 Plus bent at 110 lbs. of pressure, and it completely broke at 179 lbs. The Galaxy S6 Edge also bent at 110 lbs., and its screen cracked at that point… the Galaxy [completely broke] under 149 lbs. of pressure.”

MacDailyNews Note: The Galaxy S6 Edge’s screen smashed under 110 pounds of pressure, whereas the iPhone 6 Plus’ didn’t.
