Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge – Will It Bend?

Posted April 3, 2015 by .Omar Correa in Mobile

Well you knew it was only a matter of time before we saw the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge being put under the same scrutiny as the iPhone 6 Plus had during the Bendgate scandal a few months back. It seems that SquareTrade, a mobile protection plan service provider, has taken things to the next level by creating the BendBot – a robot designed specifically to test the bendability of today’s most popular smartphones.

The BendBot shows exactly what happens when up to 350 pounds of force is placed on a phone. It joins a suite of bots in the SquareTrade Labs arsenal that drop, dunk, slide and now bend smartphones and tablets to determine a device’s overall Breakability Score.

Check out the video to see how the Samsung S6 Edge, HTC One M9 and the iPhone 6 Plus did against the BendBot.
