The numbers are in, and Apple has sold a record breaking amount of the new iPhone 6S and 6S Plus models over the launch weekend. Thirteen million folks queued up or pre-ordered, and now at least as many Apple haters will start listing reasons why you shouldn't buy one.
Remember "Bendgate?" That turned out to be nonsense, as media hype quickly gave way to hard facts: Less than 0.000001% of iPhone users complained of bending issues during the week of the story, there were rumors of the original video being faked, and it turns out you can bend all smartphones if you apply enough pressure.

To determine the new iPhones' durability, fix-it man and YouTuber Jerry Rig Everything got his hands on one and put it to the test. It's almost painful to watch as he purposely slices at the screen and camera lens with a utility, drags keys across the back, and even subjects the screen to open flame to see what will happen:
I found the difference in results between the face and the rear of the phone surprising. And should I step up to the 6S, I'll be sure not to carry it around in my pocket with a sheet of 80-grit.
