Have You Bent Your iPod touch 5th Gen?

Seeing as how the iPod Touch 5th Gen is much thinner than the iPhone 5 and also made of aluminum, have you bent your iPod Touch 5th Gen? There are tons of people who have bent their iPhone 5 from normal use and I am interested to see if there is a similar problem with the new iPod Touch. The iPod Touch 5th Gen doesn't have the same big cut outs for the volume buttons that the iPhone 5 does so it should resist forces better.

No problems here but I'm careful with my Touch.

No normal use of an electronic device should cause it to bend, I don't care how thin it is.

Hope it's not the case for the iPod touch 5th gen as well. If you use it like any other people normally would, I don't see how it would get bent.

I have a flimsy 2 rubber case on mine, and I've sat on it once in the dark dropped it when my headphones caught on a fence and had it in my back pocket and there's not a single scratch or bend or scuff anywhere to be seen.

I find it incredibly hard to believe those iPhones were bending by themselves.

I'm guessing they're just not up to owning up to being irresponsible and clumsy, and would rather blame Apple for their shortcomings.

iPhone 5's are not bending from normal use. I don't care what anyone says, if they claim their iPhone just bent by itself, they are lying.

The iPod Touch 5th gen should also not bend from normal use. I do want to see pics of bent iPod's though

actually my iPod 5 bent from a normal use. It was in my side purse and I had a perfume bottle in my purse also and the perfume is glass and a ball shape. I had fallen and the perfume bottle mad a circular broken screen at the bottom by the home button. And the fall had cause the perfume to bend my iPod a little at the bottom I don't know if it's fixable yet or how much it costs yet though.

I wouldn't classify that as normal use.

Right, so accidental damage is normal use. Sorry but it was bent because of an accident. What I mean is that they are not just bending by themselves. They are bending because someone or something is applying pressure to it to make it bent. In your case, that was a perfume bottle and your fall.

It's not mine. I checked to see if there were any pictures on the internet showing a Touch being bent but could only find a picture of an iPhone being bent .

How is the aluminum shattered? This phot doesn't make sense to me if that's an iPhone 5.

Relax, it's just an unheralded feature - your 5th Gen. develops a nice curve with time and use!

Edit: both mine are fine.

it is possible for an ipod touch5 to bend. being that mine has bent itself.
i dont know HOW it bent, i just noticed a lighter area on my display screen indicating the area it is bent at.
i keep it in a 3 layer case so i dont know how its possible for it to bend through use.
i take care of it, never dropped it. rarely sit on it. im starting to the think it was my CASE that warped it over time.
if anyone has more information please let me know. thank you and i hope this was useful to others!
