Some iPhone 5 owners posted pictures and videos online showing what appear to be a slight bent in the middle of the device. The iPhone 5 gets bent out of shape because they were sat on by their users. The iPhone 4/4S cases came with glass and stainless steel. And in their place the iPhone 5 offers an aluminum uni body, accented by glassed and a taller in-cell display, which probably makes it weaker, don’t you think?
Well, I found this on Apple Support Communities page, an iPhone 5 user has posted a complaint on the website explaining how his device got bent. He said “I connected it to charge with original AC charger and original lightning cable i got in the box with the iPhone. i noticed after 1h of charging the the device was very HOT and charged only to 15%. i plugged it off, and on to the cable again while resetting the device. then it charged to 31% and no more after 1.5 hours. device was unusual HOT!!!. the device was in home and not exposed to high temperature or direct sunlight.
Suddenly i noticed the screen protector was a bit dislocated in the left side of the device near the volume buttons. i disconnected the device from charging and took it out from it’s case. amazing i noticed the the volume buttons where stuck and if i push them they are staying in the device and not coming out and… the device was slightly bent!!! no fall, no damage and it wasn’t like that before charging!!!”
