Social media has been abuzz over the past 24 hours with reports that the iPhone 6 Plus has a bit of a problem, in that the aluminum shell appears to bend while in users' pockets with apparently very little force being applied. The controversy has sparked a fierce debate on Twitter, and while some believe that Apple's own design is at fault, others are of the opinion that if you sit on your device or place it in a precarious position, then you're basically asking for trouble. Apple has yet to make a comment, and given that the scale of the issue doesn't seem to be widespread, there's no telling whether the company will release a statement on the matter, but for the sake of entertainment / argument, one YouTuber has also carried out the 'bend test' on a Samsung Galaxy S4. Does it bend? Find out after the fold.

Want to fix Android lag on Galaxy S4? This handy guide will help you speed up Samsung Galaxy S4. Before we go into what you actually need to do, let’s understand what lag is. There can be two types of lag, one being what you face when launching an app, for instance, where the device seems to take a couple of seconds before it actually executes your command. Such lag usually comes from an underpowered processor or insufficient RAM, and the OS is forced to unload and reload a variety of data into RAM before it can compile and run the application. The second, and arguably more frustrating, lag is when the overall interface feels sluggish, which is not necessarily Android’s fault.
Rather than simply releasing a flagship device and resting on its laurels, Samsung always seems determined to release as many spin-off versions as possible, and on a day that has seen the Galaxy Note 3 family extended with the Note 3 Neo and Neo LTE+, the Korean company's other marquee handset has been presented with yet another color option. The Galaxy S4 "Black Edition," while cutting a dark figure next to the many other colors and variations of the sought-after smartphone, also boasts a fake leather rear cover like the Note 3, so if you've been waiting for this combination of a jet-black S4 and faux leather finish, your wish has finally been granted.
Wireless charging may be a standard feature with many of the mobile industry's top smartphones, but if you happen to be in ownership of Samsung's Galaxy S4, you'll know that the device does not support it out of the box. But if you are happily wielding your Galaxy S4 and would love the option / convenience of wireless charging, you'll be pleased to learn that the official S-View Flip cover has your back. It costs $69.99, which isn't bad for a stylish all-rounder, and the added extra of inductive charging is simply the icing on the cake.
