Samsung releases video to prove Galaxy Note 4 won’t bend on you

Hoping to avoid a repeat of the bendgate controversy that engulfed the launch of the Apple iPhone 6 Plus, Samsung has released a video in which the new Galaxy Note 4 is put through its paces.

Following in the footsteps of its great rival, Samsung has shown the new phablet being put through various stress tests, amid suggestions that the device will be as easy to bend as Apple’s.

In the video, posted on Thursday, Samsung subjects the Note 4 to a three-point bent test and a human weight test, in order to assert the device’s strength and durability.

Naturally, the results of the test present the Note 4 in an extremely positive light, but then they would wouldn’t they?

Consumers may remember a time when ‘does it bend in my pocket’ wasn’t a concern when buying a smartphone, but as handsets have become larger, lighter and thinner, this may be a new metric for rating the top devices.

The Galaxy Note 4, Samsung’s next phablet will go on sale in the UK on October 10, but the company has already suffered criticism over the device’s design. Some early adopters have complained of a large gap between the screen and the bezel, although the firm claims it is not an issue.

Samsung had already taken upon itself to mock Apple’s struggles, so it will be hoping no issues are spotted within its own hardware.
