After continuing concerns about how much the iPhone 6 Plus bends, Consumer Reports took Apple’s latest smartphones, along with a number of their competitors, to the lab and tested them out… with science.

Bendgate

The video shows that the iPhone 6 Plus isn’t actually as bendable as some were suggesting. The iPhone 6 fared worse than the iPhone 6 Plus in the test, but still took an impressive 70lbs of pressure before deforming. The 6 Plus managed to withstand 90lbs of pressure, while the iPhone 5 took an amazing 130lbs of pressure before bending.

You can watch the full video below to see how these measurements compared to Apple’s competitors.
