If this is happening to all 6+ users, Apple's in trouble. If it's just a few, the affected users just need to go to the closest Apple Store and get it swapped with a brand new one. Even though the phone is sold out, they have units in reserve just in case things like this happen.

After they get it replaced, then they can talk about their quality product and great customer service.

i am not sure if this happening because of deliberate application of excessive force being applied or small force that come into play in day to day life.

After waiting in line, I'm sure the first thing people want to do is run back to the store to get another device....built in the exact same fashion as the one they are returning and subject to the exact same defect.

Apples statement to this problem would be
"you are using it wrong" or
"you are keeping the phone on a curved surface"... :P

This is not accidental. This is a new iFeature. Can you imagine an iBendable iPhone? No one did it before..

Not even a week in and they're already bending?

Haven't heard anything similiar for the HTC One M8, mine's has been on my pockets for months now and i have felt it being very tight to my jeans while crouching but still isn't bent.

If i recall properly Sony had this problem with the Z series phones, don't know if they have fixed it already, i know that at least the Z and Z1 had the bending problem.

They will just say "You're bending it wrong".

I already stated that these were coming and more is left to come and the xplosions and fires haven't started yet nor the purple hues and the leaking light through the screen corner

Lol so much for that premium built quality. Sorry to say but even those cheap plastics galaxies won't Bend after years of use. Now I wonder what stupid excuse would ifans make up for this. Maybe they would say it's ialuminum with iproperties.

Even when the iphone 5 was released, there were such reports(maybe it only happens with a few phones or maybe the users do something wrong, because it doesn't happen to every iphone).

So Apple only stole the bending feature on the LG Flex and not the unbending feature? Oops.

Of course, now I have to deal with customers who have phones that "mysteriously" bent. Would I get fired if I said they exceeded the stated weight allowance?
