Apple iPhone 6 Plus Nokia 3310
News broke of #BendGate soon after the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus launch and was made viral thanks to Lewis Hilsenteger of Unbox Therapy. Hilsenteger released a series of videos portraying him bending the brand new iPhone 6 Plus with his bare hands alongside other popular flagship smartphones, and since then, plenty of people have been attempting to do so. Adrian Isen decided to do his own version of Hilsenteger’s bend tests, except with a Nokia 3310.

In case you don’t remember the age-old Nokia 3310, the device came out in early 2000, and has been one of the most durable phones to ever come out. The device is still owned by a few people out there and is nearly unbreakable. This is proven by Isen’s most recent video where he actually hurts his hands while attempting to bend the device.

We can only wish that today’s smartphones were nearly as durable and tough as the Nokia 3310, but it seems as if nothing can come close to beating it just yet. This is a great take on the #BendGate scandal, and Isen definitely made some folks laugh with the release of this video.

If #BendGate sounds unfamiliar to you, Apple’s newest smartphones, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, are extremely susceptible to being bent towards the area near the volume rockers. This is due to one of the aluminum casing’s metal inserts (used for stability of the device) being a tad too close to the volume rocker cutouts, allowing the smartphone to be easily warped.

Apple will likely address this issue in their second lineup of production, and has already stated that those affected by the bending issues may be eligible to receive a new smartphone after a visual inspection. Until then, it’s still great to have a bit of a laugh at the manufacturing issues, although we hope everyone’s iPhone 6 Plus is still intact and remains unbent.

What do you think of Isen’s take on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus’s bending issues?



iPhone 6 Plus Review
iPhone 6 Plus Review Lisa Gade reviews the iPhone 6 Plus. This is Apple’s 5.5” iPhone with a full HD 1920 x 1080 IPS display. The phone runs iOS 8 and it has an anodized aluminum body available in silver, space gray or gold. It’s just 7.1mm thin to offset otherwise large, pablet dimensions and it’s a 6 ounce unibody design with the 2915 mAh battery sealed inside. The iPhone 6 Plus runs on Apple’s dual core 1.4GHz A8 64 bit CPU with 1 gig of RAM and your choice of 16, 64 or 128 gigs of storage. It has a 1.2MP front and 8MP rear camera both with BSI and fast lenses. Other features include Touch ID (fingerprint sensor), LTE 4G, dual band WiFi 802.11ac, NFC for Apple Pay and a GPS. Pricing starts at $299 with 2 year contract or $750 full retail. Beyond the much larger screen size, optical image stabilization (OIS) on the rear camera and a much bigger battery set it apart from the iPhone 6. * Read our in-depth written review here: http://www.mobiletechreview.com/phones/iPhone-6-Plus.htm PT30M8S

Nokia 3310 new 2014 with 41 Megapixel camera and Windows Phone 8
Nokia 3310 new 2014 with 41 Megapixel camera and Windows Phone 8 Want more interesting videos? Subscribe, like and share: https://www.youtube.com/user/videoplam Initially released in the year 2000, the Nokia 3310 went on to be one of the most successful mobile phones ever. More than 125 million were sold and, thanks to a small group of Nokia fanatics, this cult handset is making a modern-day comeback. Staying near-true to the original design, the Nokia 3310 with PureView will add a 41MP PureView camera with Zeiss optics and Xenon flash, and will run a modified version of Windows Phone 8 to fit the unique 'ClearDiamond' three-inch touch screen. As well as the classic metallic dark blue, the Nokia 3310 with PureView will also come in yellow, blue, red and green. Three 'soft-touch' navigation keys still feature a Windows Phone 'home' button has been introduced to you straight back to the Start Screen. LiveTiles and App Folders are supported and it comes pre-installed with MS Office, Xbox Games, Outlook and OneDrive that offers 7GB free cloud storage out of the box. Juha Alakarhu, Nokia head of Imaging Technologies, said: "I'm really excited that we've found a way to marry our innovative PureView technology with such a beloved device. With its durable design and iconic look, we think even more people will enjoy our signature PureView magic " 3310-pureview-in-line2To power the next-gen operating system and class-leading camera, Nokia engineers have achieved the unthinkable, scaling down a dual-core processor, 2GB RAM and 32GB of on-board storage into a case that mimics the original size (113 x 48 x 22mm) and weight (133g). A side-mounted MicroSD card slot offers additional storage expansion. The first devices will rollout with 3G connectivity while LTE-equipped devices will follow later in the year. With a nostalgic nod to yesteryear, the Nokia 3310 with PureView comes pre-loaded with four games -- Snake II, Pairs II, Space Impact and Bantumi -, a currency converter and original monophonic ringtones. Norman Gage, who has been campaigning for the return of the Nokia 3310 since its discontinuation, said: "It's an historic day. For five years, we've worked hard to make our voice heard and now our dreams are about to become reality. Personally, I'd have preferred to keep the five-line, monochrome screen, six ringing-tone volume levels and original message templates, but you can't win them all!"
