Yours truly also tried to be funny:
I think Apple should have made the iPhone 6 not as thin as it is. Alone for the sake of making the camera lens not stick out. It would have also make the iPhone 6 more stable. Does this mean that Apple has a BendGate? As of now, i do not think so, but if reports about damaged iPhone 6 are increasing than Apple will have to react in some way.
