LG, Samsung and HTC take aim at rival Apple over BendGate


As news began to spread that the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have a tendency to bend and warp if left in a pants pocket, a hashtag quickly rose to prominence on Twitter to capture all of the tech drama from people taking to social media to complain -- #bendgate. With the hashtag trending, it is the perfect opportunity for Apple competitors to strike and get their message out, and Samsung, LG and more aren't wasting any time to do so.

A whole number of brands, ranging from rival tech companies to candy bars, are all cashing in on #bendgate and the misfortune of those who prefer to transport their $500 phone in their pockets.

With all the negative social media attention and rivals taking shots left and right, you can be sure Apple is looking to fix this problem sooner rather than later. In the meantime, all these creative advertisements sure are entertaining.
