Apple's smartphone rivals have taken to Twitter to mock the so-called "bendgate" surrounding the iPhone 6 Plus after customers complained that the newly-released phones had bent unexpectedly.

"Curved. Not Bent," Samsung tweeted, along with a photo of its Galaxy Note Edge, which features a purposely curved edge.

"Our phone doesn't bend, it flexes ... on purpose," LG wrote on Twitter.

Earlier this week, iPhone Plus 6 owners posted photos showing their new phones with slight bends in the thin aluminum frame from seemingly innocuous use — like being placed in pants pockets. On Wednesday, Apple promised to replace the bent handsets.

Regular folks got into the actions as well.
