I don't know exactly how to describe this. But my Xperia Z1 seems slightly bent at one side. The power button side. Look at the pic. Lying on a flat surface. Compare the power button side and the usb side. In honesty, my phone has been recently exposed to a lotta heat. Abuja, Nigeria is really hot. The phone got so hot that day it actually started damaging the carrying pouch. Should I be worried?

idk if my eyes are bad..
but isn't that more like a hump on the battery part?
seems logical if it is a hump... batteries are never good with high heat exposure

well try putting i on a flat table and get a shot from the sides while the phone is lying on the back and front

Thumbs down
I came across two images of Xperia Z1 Bent on Sony Mobile forum. It seems very sad that users are saying that they didn't put it back pocket and not at all sat on it.

so I put up a post here to make users aware of this http://www.xperiaguide.com/2013/11/1...-bent-appears/ and @dante2086 if I have your permission can I include your pic in above post of mine ?

@zegun Yeah, sorry about that. I actually uploaded four files using the app, didn't know that three failed. But I've uploaded the others.
@ara.armagedon How does it affect my health?
@TheCraig Never put in my back pocket, not even once.
@ImAnurag Feel free to use the pix.

I was talking about the heat but you can't really trust a phone in that condition, perfectly fine phones sometimes blowup. Fix it ASAP

Yeah, but I think I've adapted to it. As for the phone, the problem is Sony mobile, has poor, if not nearly non-existent representation in Nigeria. Most Sony phones are sold via third party representatives in Nigeria, and I don't think too much of them. If it does get worse though, I might be forced to send it in. As u can see from the pics it's not too severe. And I kept the phone in water for ten minutes today just to verify if it was still waterproof, apparently it still is.

Aluminium!
A metal frame!
change its shape in normal earth temperature !!!
u r kiddin!
even water needs more than 80-90C to change its shape!
but for example aluminium body of XZ1 change because of maybe 60C !! (60C for warmest city on earth!)
-
and some users talked about this problem without any reason !!!
no caused phenomena are for quantum world.
in our normal world there s always reason for everything.
and reason of something like this is users misbehaving...
