Since being released, Apple’s latest iphone generation – the iphone 6 –  has been receiving a lot of negative reviews and criticism, but one man really does have reason to dislike this new iphone!

American man, Phillip Lechter’s new iphone 6 bent in his pocket and caught fire to his pants!

Phillip was riding in a rickshaw cart when it crashed, jolting him and the phone into the side. He then felt burning on his leg and saw smoke coming from his pants.

Someone passing by threw a cup of water on Phillip’s jeans whilst another burned his fingers trying to pick up the iphone which had been dropped on the ground in the rush to put out the fire.

The iphone was smashed a blackened by the fire which had burned straight through his jeans and boxers, leaving him with a second-degree burn on his leg.

The burn was 4 inches long and needed medical treatment and there was also another burn on his hip that he had received trying to get the phone out of his pocket.

This isn’t good news for the iphone 6 which has already had several complaints of bending out of shape in people’s pockets.
