Is #Hairgate Really A Thing?
This entry was posted on Thursday, October 9, 2014.
According to some iPhone 6 users the seam between the metal case and the glass is just wide enough to catch a strand or two of hair when held against the users head. Some users have said that the iPhone 6 is also catching and pulling out their facial hair. Hence a new hashtag was born: #hairgate.
An unscientific study by The Guardian technology reporter staff discovered that while the iPhone 6 did indeed pull out beard hairs, none of its competitors did. However, none of the phones tested wrested any hairs from anyone's head. Incidentally, it's worth noting that if the phone is not pressed hard against facial hair no hairs will be harmed during use.
Or, do what we do and get a case from Luvvitt. Problem solved!
