Phone bending / Screen adhesive wearing on side of screen.

It appears that my phone is bending right at the power button. It also appears that the screen itself is splitting, separating, from the side frame.

 

I never use a case and never sit on my phone. 

 

I believe when the phone gets too warm the adhesive starts to slowly loose its strength. The force is flexing the material of the phone's frame.

 

The worst it's been is the power button completely unable to be pressed.

I'm sorry about your phone but the phone can't bend on it's own, you should contact your Local support to get it inspected. Do you keep the phone in your back pocket, maybe you didn't sat on it, but if it was in your pocket and you squat or bend down perhaps it cause this.

Thanks for the reply.

Knowing that the phone is thin, I mostly use a phone ring holder. It would be rather silly to squat with a phone in your pockets. 

 

However, wouldn't the bend be not as subtle as it is now but rather more define if I kept it in my pocket and squat? One would have to be quite vigorous with the device would they not?

 

Though I understand this model is a mid range phone, should the screen of all things be seperating?

Do you think the battery, perhaps, might be beginning to swell?
