Thanks to the whole iPhone 6 Plus “bendgate” issue, bend tests have suddenly not only become compulsory, if a phone is strong enough, it is something to brag about. We all know that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is one of the strongest smartphones out there, Consumer Reports found that it’s the strongest among several devices they tested, and even Unbox Therapy couldn’t bend it (the guy who showed how bendable the iPhone 6 Plus is, in more than one video) no matter how hard he tried, so how about the Galaxy Note 4?
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 features a metal frame and magnesium bracket in its build that Samsung touts is “big, thin and light but strong”, but is it strong enough to withstand a 3-point bend test that places the phone on two support, and applying 25kg of pressure in the middle? Since the iPhone 6 Plus manage to withstand 25kg in Apple’s test lab, it’s no surprise that the Note 4 will too. But how about stimulating someone who weighs 100kg sitting on the phone several hundreds of times?
