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

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...

:good:

How in the world!???

They sat on it or applied some other force to it. The laws of physics disagree with "it just bent itself." As for heat, the melting point of aluminum is 660 celcius... that's over 1200 degrees Fahrenheit. And that's almost how hot it would have to get to start bending "by itself."

Smartass all fo you....

The aluminum frame is fabricated it such a way that IT CAN ACTUALLY BEND ITSELF! If the stress tensor in the alimonum block was highly distorted before the chipping process THE FRAM WILL BENT ITSELF AFTER A WHULE to relive inner materials pressure...

This can defenetly be cause by wrong fabricatimg procedures....

Go atudy your physics before blabbering about physics on xda..!

Hahahahahah I think someone needs to study spelling before typing on xda!!

yeah my z1 seems bent too. i've noticed it shortly after getting it. girlfriend thinks i'm crazy but i'm sure. i did put it off as an optical illusion due to the port covers not being 100% parallel to the frame sometimes, but even on a table it wobbles, so it must be bent.
very disconcerting to say the least.

Could be that the battery is swollen due to overcharging, or the aluminium could have bent, melting point doesn't mean that it can be made into a durable metal at lower heat, but i find that unlikely, i'm putting my money on the battery swelling.

You don't know what the hell you're talking about. Few people in the world are as careful with their phones as I am. And I definitely don't sit on it. And fabricated aluminium doesn't need to get to it melting point to bend.

Yeah, I thought so too. It happened to my K700, but that significantly affected my battery life. But since uninstalling CNN app and installing 4.3, my battery life is great.

Could still be m8, i've seen batteries swell until they literally broke the devices, i have a device for transferring data from any mobile device to any other mobile device, called celibrite, I like i div had it charging all the time and the battery ended up like a massive blue bag (swollen) it broke the front sim slot and pushed the screws out through their threads, nothing was stopping it, in terms of battery life i have to say when it was disconnected i didn't noticed a drop in battery life either, although it was never unplugged for very long, as for my phone I have it on a timer at night so it never gets more than an hour of overcharge.

I see. Well the bending doesn't seem to be getting worse, so if it's a battery swelling, its safe to say it's stopped right?

    @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.

    That's not case with all Z1 devices.

    And I really doubt charging after battery is full could "melt" battery.

    It could happen on bad battery or device but generally - you can hold your phone 1 week on charger and it will only charge when it need to charge.
    As I said - I'm talking about non defective devices.

    Only problem you'll have is constantly charging and discharging battery which will lead to bad battery life but it'll not "melt" or "bend" because of that.

    I charge my device 4-5 times in one week and I connect charger at 11pm and disconnect at 7-8am.

    Not once my battery was hot or something else.

    There's mechanism that prevents overcharging - invention we are using for over 15 years so please, stop talking nonsense and scaring people.
