C'mon people, putting it in your back pocket is asking for trouble. Bending would be the least of your concern - I'd be more worried about pickpocketing.

Plus with the trend of heading towards larger phones, I doubt they'll even comfortably fit there unless you have a really flat arse :p

This is why my phone goes into my front pocket along with my wallet.


I don't even know why there is a back pocket. Unless you have a lot of fat back there its very uncomfortable sitting on something like a phone or wallet.

I would find it very weird to not have back pockets. I use them more than front pockets. I only use the right front pocket for change, keys, and lighter.
If the secondary front right pocket of pants is big enough for my phone, I use that sometimes, but those pockets very seldom are big enough.

They beat Samsung by bringing the bendable phones first.

Hmm, for anything but a tissue or temporarily carrying stuff in it from A to B it really is uncomfy as hell.

You're rolling in late, have a look at page 1 :p

Could be one of the selling points for making you want to buy the next model. New and improved ass-bend resistant chassis.

I wonder if Apple will use this when they patent flexible displays.....

But seriously, dont be stupid and sit when your phone is in your back pocket. Mine goes in my front pocket, never in my back.


I wear mine on my forehead with a headband. I get better signal strength that way.

Same here. I don't take any chances of someone stealing my stuff or me breaking something.

I don't see how the glass is not shattered or at least cracked.

I've never understood why anyone puts their phone in their back pocket, it's asking for it to be stolen or broken. I carry both my phones in my front pocket, and they both fit easily. My phones are a HTC One XL and an iPhone 5, and they happily co-exist in the same pocket quite comfortably

I get great use out of my back pockets when I'm standing up and working. It's easier to place tools back there that I don't need at the moment, but will need in a few minutes from now. But for long term storage while sitting...yeah, they suck.
