#Bendgate: HTC, Samsung, and LG rub salt into Apple’s wounds
Those who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. It’s a wise saying that few in the tech industry seem to live by. But it’s alright, we don’t mind. The big names’ desire to capitalize on a competitor’s misfortune is often a source of hilarity.
Take #bendgate. By now, you probably know that simply walking around with an iPhone 6 Plus in your pocket could bend it, sometimes irremediably. In typical Internet fashion, the issue spiraled into a storm of 160-character quips, more or less witty memes, and deep social commentary from everyone and their grandma.
Apple’s got its share of snark and derision over #bendgate (or is it #bendghazi?). But you can count on rivals in the Android camp to make it even harder for the folks in Cupertino.
LG casually recommends users a phone that’s supposed to be bent, like the G Flex.
What’s your favorite #bendgate joke? Should we even be making fun of Apple? I mean, problems with Android devices come up all the time… Thoughts?
