Took my phone out of my pocket today to notice a slight bend. I looks like right were the two covers meet. Was wondering if anyone else has maybe noticed this. I do keep my phone in my pocket all day but I don't think it should bend that easy. Let me know what you gentleman think.

There are so many OCD threads it's amazing. I'm not saying this one is. But, I would suspect this phone would bend VERY easily.

1) it's paper-thin
2) if you watch the YouTube video about how the aluminum was machined/milled, you see that aside from the lower half, the upper half is 2 very thin aluminum rails (sides) bridged by another super thin aluminum rail across top. So yes, thus will bend very easily. Aluminum is incredibly weak (I'm a machinist).

will post pics when i get home. My god everyone wants proof of everything. No trust anymore. Just wondering if anyone else had noticed wasn't a big deal. The mods can delete thread if need be. You can see by my post count I don't post a million and one things about dumb stuff. You can also see from my join date that I have been around awhile and only post serious stuff.

Dude, it's hard to comment on something without pictures. All we can say is, "oh wow, that sucks."

its not that hard to comment without pictures. Its bent pull your phone out of your pocket and see if you notice a slight bend. If not go back to moms basement and leave it alone.

Pardon me, but you're speaking to an adult, and I happen to be a homeowner. Grow up with the "mom's basement" stuff. At least use an apostrophe if you're going to insult someone's intelligence.

Anyway, post some pictures and we'll have some actual comments for you.
