I find it hard to believe that regular pocketing would bend an iPhone, unless other stressful factors are involved. It may not be other people's style but I wear a belt holster for the iPhone where it stays protected and out of the way. I never liked putting my iPhone in my pockets because I carry so much other stuff in my pockets.
I use a belt clip holster too. I work on the ICS team at Wal Mart and I do a lot of bending and lifting, since I get picks in the backroom all day. There is no way I am getting a Plus just for this reason alone. The last thing I want to do is pay the money for a Plus and have it do this. I'm planning on getting a holster, screen protector and case for the 6 when I can get one.

A few reports (out of the 10 million phones sold over the weekend) and suddenly the 6 is the flimsiest phone ever... It's even on my local news tonight. Moral of the story: be careful with your new expensive phone and take some personal responsibility for damaging it...

Take personal responsibility for carrying your phone in your pocket? With all these new health apps & new iwatch maybe they should have a tutorial on how to carry your phone when your working out, or simply walking, or better yet sitting down.

There are two sides to every story. I'm not saying it's not an issue, but I'm also not buying that these phones were bent as easily as the reports claim. In he video in where the guy bends it with hist bare hands, he uses an awful lot of pressure...

I'll say it again, be careful with your new, expensive phone. I'm a front pocket user myself and have never had a problem with an iPhone, including my new 6.

Well of course the 6+ bends. How else do you expect Apple to sell those iWatches next year? Leave your iPhone 6+ out of your pockets and use the watch! :cautious::D

Maybe it's just a rumor. Did you saw the video?
Yes i saw the video but nowhere it had showed it got bend when kept in the pocket.... If you purposely try to bend using force with both your hands then it bends... Its shown on youtube.
