Samsung Reassures Us the Galaxy Note 4 Won't Bend

The big problem Apple is facing right now is the fact that the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus may bend in the customer’s pocket. Long-time competitor Samsung made sure to emphasize that its Galaxy Note 4 won’t bend. It did so in a video entitled “Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Endures the Gluteus Maximus,” video that is embedded below.

“Samsung makes and sells hundreds of millions of smart devices each year, and it's very important that each and every one is in line with its strict quality control standards. So, to make sure you can rely on its devices, including Galaxy Note 4, Samsung runs rigorous tests both during and after development and production,” said Samsung Tomorrow, Samsung’s official global blog.


The new iPhone 6 (4.7-inch display, 6.99mm thin) and the new iPhone 6 Plus (5.5-inch display, 7.1mm thin) are Apple’s thinnest smartphones ever – Apple was quite glad to announce when it introduced the new devices. The thing is that because they’re very thin, the new iPhones may bend in the customer’s pocket.

If the iPhone 6 Plus will bend, won’t the Galaxy Note 4 bend as well? After all, the two have similar proportions. The iPhone 6 has a 5.5-inch display, is 7.1mm thin, and weighs in at 172g thin. The Galaxy Note 4 has a 5.7-inch screen, is 8.5mm thin, and weighs in a 176g.

So as I was saying, since the Galaxy Note 4 has similar proportions to the iPhone 6 Plus, won’t it bend in the customer’s pocket? That’s a question that may be going through your mind right about now. It’s also a question that Samsung made sure to address.

Samsung recently rolled out a video entitled “Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Endures the Gluteus Maximus.” The video emphasizes the fact that the Galaxy Note 4 is strong…strong enough to withstand pressure from your behind if you place it in your back pocket. This is Samsung’s way of reassuring existing and potential customers that the Galaxy Note 4 will not bend!

UPDATE, October 8. Samsung Tomorrow posted a drop test video for the Galaxy Note 4.
