Just noticed that my phone is already bent. The only thing I can think of is that this could be the result of the arm band I used the first day I had it. FFFFFFFFFKKKKK. This is real BS I hate cases but I hope you guys are using them..


EDIT: Adding pictures. The phones seems to have bent at the frame at the power button - there is a slight dimple right below it.

I am extremely sad, mad, angry, and upset.







The Glass is warped on both sides. I am afraid of using the phone because it might crack if it gets too hot
Glass is warped on both sides!

This picture shows the worst of it!
The worst!

Back pocket? Ultra tight front pocket?

He said arm band.
which is weird unless it's a really tight armband or he put it near his elbow.

Never put the phone in my back pocket, and I don't wear tight fitting pants. The phone is usually in my hand when I am driving, and on the desk at work.

The armband couldn't have been too tight otherwise I would have no blood flow to my arm, and if it was near my elbow no movement. However, this is the only thing I can think of because of the above stated.

No, not yet. I think I would be just better off returning the phone - it's literally just been 4 days.

Screen cracks are fairly common with arm bands
First time i see a bent phone from it.

It is easy to generate a lot of force when jogging even when it isn't really tight, it tends to be the g-force doing the damage.

Well no harm trying to request for return.

I'd say it is really a bad timing to return a bent phone due to bendgate.
Good luck.

Xperia Arc is back! .... I loved that phone So much.

I hope this is a rare case. As much as I care most about the thickness of a device when it comes to dimensions, it does make them bendy.

Maybe i'll create an app that straightens your phone........

None of this adds up to me. Can't see how an arm band could cause this. I tried bending my phone a little bit after seeing this thread, and it's a little flexible, but my bending didn't cause a permanent bend (granted I wasn't trying to permanently bend it either). If you don't wear tight fitting jeans and don't put it in your back pocket, all I can think is you tried to bend it yourself... If it's not that then there is something else you did that you're not telling us...
