While I understand that LG Flex has been specifically manufactured to withstand these extreme tests and conditions, I just wanted to see how my Nexus 7 compares. I was not at all extreme with it and just slightly flexed it, subjecting it to those conditions which were all extremely likely on normal user's usage scenario. Pardon me, if you thought what I did was wrong.

I'm not judging right or wrong here, I just don't see the point of stress testing a perfectly good device (unless of course you are a tech editor and want to show your readers/viewers a potential device weakness). Personally, I treat my devices with kid gloves - I like the way they look and feel now, and I'd like them to be the same 2 years down the road when I trade up to the newest version.
And flexing a device that wasn't intended to flex is just asking for problems.
