Apple Inc. (AAPL) Has Killed Expectations And Bent Perspectives

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s iPhones go bananas if enough pressure is applied to them. There are numerous customers reporting they realized that their iPhone 6 Plus has bent while being in their front pocket. CNBC had gotten Mykola Golovko, Senior Analyst-Consumer Electronics at Euromonitor International, to comment on the issue.

The internet is already full of pictures and videos of bent phones or people trying to get them out of the shape. Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3 seems to have passed the same test Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s devices of the sixth generation did not handle. Sony Corp (ADR) (NYSE:SNE)’s Xperia Z1 had the same problem with wrapping itself up.

“Under different, probably, forces that are involved, some may bend easier and some will be a little harder to bend. […] It’s definitely not uncommon to see these very large area phones that are very thin being able to bend,” said Mykola Golovko.

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s quite close to the $102 value but it experiences problems of getting up and it actually fell by almost 1% during its last trading day. If the news that other phones do better in the bending test proves to be accurate, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s iPhone might frustrate a lot of customers, which paid a high premium for their device compared to similar smartphones from the company’s rivals.

“With the smartphone market really growing not just from Apple and Samsung, we see increasingly competitive and well-designed units from not just old guard like HTC and Sony and so on, but also from upper comers Xiaomi, Alpo even, ” stated Mykola Golovko.

This month is not particularly welcome for Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) as previously issues related to privacy spurred a lot of commotion. Its stock price hasn’t reached the level it had on September 2, when it dived for the first time under the pressure of possible breaches in security.  Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) still hasn’t launch in China so ,probably, it has enough time to strengthen their phones and get back on its feet.
