The 'bendgate' issue has been gaining traction among the tech community for a few days now, and so to help try and add some perspective YouTube user Unbox Therapy has decided to apply the 'bend test' to several of the iPhone's competitors.

The first up is the iPhone 6 (not the Plus) and the news is positive. It fares much better than the iPhone 6 Plus -- but the screen takes the strain by popping away from the body of the phone.

Next up he tries the HTC One M8, Motorola Moto X and finally what looks to be the US version of the Lumia 1020.

Which comes out on top? Well if you're planning on sitting on your phone a lot then it looks like the Moto X is the phone for you.

Even when bent with extreme duress the phone didn't budge, not even slightly.
