Just realized my month old z1 is bent

Hi,

 

Today I put my phone on the table and just realized that my phone is bent. I have attached a picture for reference. Anyone else facing this issue?1460116_10153431588925532_1574360167_n.jpg

At a guess, id say you had it in a back pocket.

It didnt leave the factory like that. Heck it would not sit properly in the packaging when you got it.

 

You did it dude. Turn it around and sit on it again. Winking Face

Re: Just realized my month old z1 is bent

Just don't bend it back to normal or you risk hardware failure. I've read somewhere that Xperia Z1's hardware is very sensitive to dropping/bending. In fact, when AndroidAuthority did a drop test with the Z1 it had barely any scratches but the phone didn't function because of the shock inside the hardware.

Thanks for the info. I have spoken to the local sony support here. They reckon I'll have to speak to the HQ here to get it looked at.

I have seen Z users to complain about this, It might be due to phone heating
