Business Insider- MacRumors theorizes this "bending" effect could be the result of the phone's size. Since it's so large and thin, it's susceptible to bending with your body as you move. Smaller phones would slide out of the way, MacRumors claims.
You know when all those pretentious Apple loyalists who go out and buy their newest phone every single time it's released, then turn and judge you for having an older model? They are the same people that will probably buy the ridiculous Apple watch. Yeah well, the shoes on the other foot you ostentatious assholes. At least my phone doesn't look like a porno star's penis.
I will never understand people that need the newest Apple device within hours of it being released. I don't even know how the iPhone has changed since the development of the iPhone 4. I had the 4, and now I have the 5, and I have no fucking clue what the difference is. It's smaller, and it looks nicer. Big fucking deal. Also, I had to go out and buy all new chargers. Thanks for that. I finally figured out how to not lose one, and they go and change the plug. I really don't get it though. I held a friend's iPhone 6 and it was monstrous. I felt like I was holding a tablet.
I have no interest in going around with a tablet in my pocket. First and foremost because it is not convenient. Second of all because I don't want the thing I spent a whole bunch of money on bending in my pocket. Why do people go out and buy the phone the day it comes out? The lines are insane. Without fail there is always 5-6 issues that need to be dealt with before it's officially running smoothly. It's the same reason I don't download the new iOS the same day it gets launched. Every single time there is undoubtedly a major issue that I have to deal with, or it takes 9 hours to download, or I look at the phone and can't figure out what the hell I just downloaded because it looks exactly the same. I see no benefit in being one of the first people to have the phone other than being able to say 'I have the iPhone 6'.
So fuck you Apple loyalists. I hope you have to fold your phone open like a MacBook after sitting with it in your pocket for a week. I hope you get blindsided by a cab while holding your tablet to your face texting your friends that you just got the new iPhone. I hope all your money and time is wasted.
Team iPhone 5.
P.S. I will probably download the new iOS as soon as I get stuck in the next group chat that quickly kills my will to live as well as my battery life.
