    Metal fatigue works on a different clock.

    There is no metal fatigue involved unless you sit on it.

    It's an entirely new camera and lens. The only thing carried forward is
    design knowledge. The new design, however, is more complex.

    Cherry picking the blogs? Really?
    It's not that. It's: "does it really matter if it gets thinner?"

    And really, it doesn't.
    I already conceded that I was off on what Apple did, the above was just
    a splinter from that.

    What evidence do you have they didn't reveal all? This is one of the
    most secretive companies in the world.
    You seem rather lathered and entertained.

    You can have no idea where metal fatigue or other parts may be getting
    fatigue due to the lens protrusion and stresses placed on the camera
    assembly. To be clear I'm not talking about the phone case here but
    about the camera assembly.

    In any case I'll be ordering a case for the phone today.

    Mr. Strat Guest

    I don't use a case, just a protective skin on the backside to keep it
    from getting scratched.

    We do actually with a phone. There isnt going to be any
    metal fatigue involved unless you sit on the phone.
    Sure, that was always obvious.
    Sure, doesn’t do any harm to play safe like that.

  8. Doesn't need to. The protrusion is camfered, sturdy, and fixed.

    You don't need to put your hand in ... you simply push the iPhone up
    from the bottom and out of the pocket from the outside. ;-)

    The "antenna issue" was overblown bullshit.
    What button issues? I still have two iPhone 4's with perfectly
    functional buttons. I also still have a 3GS with a perfectly functional
    button. And two 4Ss that are still in use with perfectly functional
    buttons.
    Less than the 5s? Yes of course, they are larger. Still requires a
    shit-ton of force? Yes.

    He has decided that there *is* a problem, no matter what. Frankly, I
    couldn't possibly care less. The protusion of the lens is minuscule and
    gives the lens much better optics.

    Would I prefer a thicker heavier iPhone with more battery? Yes, es I
    would. Would I think "hey, this way the lens doesn't stick out"? No, I
    don't care about that at all, I just want a two day battery iPhone.

    No, there is no problem. You are *inventing* a problem.
    This is the second time you've mentioned putting an iPhone on a car
    seat. *THAT* is a problem, and shows a concerning level of stupidity.

    You're being silly. He has decide it is a problem, therefore, despite th
    lack of all evidence, it must be a problem. It *will* be a problem. He
    has decreed it.

    What a fucking putz.

    And it was a bullshit article then, no reason to think it's changed at
    all. How many phones have bene bent on accident that were not sat on?
    How widespread is this problem? I know I've never seen a bent iPhone 6.
    According to my Apple Stores (Cherry Creek and Park Meadows), they've
    never seen one either.
    What market research have you done on that? None? Right.

    es, but AB acts as if every problem, regardless of how minor or how few
    people where effected is a universal issue.
