    Oh, although the iPhone 6 bends at a lower lbs of pressure then the iPhone 5, still higher then the htc M8, but below the note 3. Consumer reports who is always critical of apple, says it's a none issue as well. Still funny though.

    No, 9 phones reported, out of 11+ million sold last week. Just search bend android, I'm sure you'll find other images of other devices that have bent or broken in a pocket. Under normal use, nothing to worry about. But it is ammo for fan boys of other manufacturers, so go with it.

    The point is, it's not Windows Me, no recall is required, it's just internet hype. Maybe it's good for apple actually, takes a little heat off of the real apple f-up this week. That issue is inexcusable... Someone should or did get fired.

    Flagships always draw the scrutiny of the "others".

    Samsung is rushing delivery of new devices since iPhone 6 release and iwatch. Cross your fingers for those consumers.

    Even 100 times that amount is a none issue, unless it's my phone.

    The HTC One M8 with Windows 8.1 and the Lumia 1520/1020 have cameras that are equal or slightly better than the 6/6+ camera.

    The tech review site Gizmodo opined:

    I am using a Galaxy Note 2. My contract ends in early 2015 and I will give a serious look at the M8 along with the Note3 or 4.

    Fun times for smartphones!

    I have NEVER shopped for a smartphone based on the camera specs. Its actually the last thing I care about, yet I do use the camera a lot. Smartphone cameras are nice point-N-Shoots, but with limited aperture I never cared much. Great for video and will never have a "Camcorder" ever again.

    The M8 camera didn't look so good in the comparisons I just looked at. search: iPhone 5s vs. HTC One M8

    I feel as long as you can capture a quick photo without missing the shoot, its a good camera. iPhone puts the camera button on the lock screen, so grabbing that moment is 1 second away. Not sure how others perform when it comes to "Time to capture."

    For me it's different.

    Besides the actual phone features, the camera is one of the deciding factors for me personally in determining which phone I want. I use my phone's camera a lot for "life events" as I always have it with me. Same for video, like during sporting events for my kids. Others will have different feature wants/needs, as you have pointed out. I gave the M7 a try, but the camera isn't the best, nor is the M8 android version as it's the same camera.

    As for my M7, the camera button is also on the lock screen.

    This happens with every single new product release by apple. Apple haters jump on it and tack a "gate" on the root of the "controversy". If others were so inclined they could easily cook up a "gate" for windows, android, or anything other new product when it is released. As apple has pretty much single handedly shaped the mobile market as we know it they are a huge lightening rod that every one takes a shot at.

    Every notice how almost every single samsung, or microsoft surface commercial does not tout their product, but it tries to cut down apple.

    Mark my word when the apple watch is released within a week there will be a _________ gate in the headlines.

    This got old a really long time ago.

    There will be a TimeGate, WatchGate, TinyGate, button gate, crownGate.

    Agree, Samsung should spend more $ on product design and use higher quality internals. Even my Android fanboy friend hates that every Android phone he has had gets slow after a few months of use. Samsung did replace stating it was a Flash memory issue. But still happens... FlashGate!

    I see they tried to delete video, and authorities are going to find them pretty easy.


    "We were in the Apple store bending and breaking their iPhone, which is like criminal damage I guess," one of the teens explains at the tail end of the video. "I don't even care to be honest, because it's Apple's fault."
