Samsung Officially Responds to the Samsung S6 bending like Beckham

Okay maybe not like Beckham, but it did bend. In case you don’t know, the Samsung S6 was recently put to the test by SquareTrade to see if it could bend just like the IPhone 6 in the famous BendGate Scandal that started last year.  The test involved three handsets – the iPhone 6 Plus, the HTC One M9, and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, these handsets weren’t bent by hand, instead a device referred to as as BendBot was used to apply pressure on the phone until it broke. Obviously the Samsung S6 Edge bent at around 110 pounds which is the same amount of pressure required to bend the IPhone 6 plus, not only that the S6 Edge cracked along the edge – notice the rhyme 😉  

See the SquareTrade video below

Now Samsung  are clearly unhappy with the testing methods used by SquareTrade and went as far as issuing a statement on their Official website – see it here, they  also released a video showing the 3-point bend test that they have carried out internally ( See it above)

According to Samsung, the amount of force that was used to bend the Samsung S6 were not realistic under normal circumstance – “the normal force generated when a person presses the back pocket is approximately 66lbf (30kgf). Our internal test results indicate that the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge are not bendable even under 79lbf (32kgf), which is equivalent to putting pressure to snap a bundle of five pencils at once.”

They claimed that SquareTrade only tested the front side, without testing the back side, which may mislead consumers about the entire durability of the Samsung S6.

Now they want SquareTrade to do the test all over again which targets both the front and back sides, they expect SquareTrade to publish the test result to the public once they are done – in my mum’s tone of voice – “Kati, kati”

Who are you in support of?  Samsung or SquareTrade

    I believe SquareTrade has a mission, either to damage Samsung trust or hype iPhone reputation. Now, let SquareTrade test the back and give us the feedback. I'm waiting
