what a bend!

but will it affect the chips inside the phone or weaken the phone structure?

seems like just a little force is needed to bend it, most people put their phone in the pant's pocket, its gonna bend easily whenever we move since the phone is quite huge

Re: Build Quality
Hmm if it is really that flexible, than you are pretty safe when you drop the phone, it wil just spread the shock over the whole chasis.

Shock test by Sony rep who claims it uses Dragontrail Glass.

EDIT: Not worth watching actually, it's a pretty lame 'shock test'. Highlight being the rep saying that the screen will "remain calm" when banged about.

I was just about to post this, to me it looks like an optical illusion, too.

i have my xperia Z here and it really bends similar to the video. But i don't see it as a negative point, because it is really shatterproof because of that.
