Prepare for the "It's all your fault and Apple is perfect" brigade. Sigh.

Yes, Apple chose to use a low grade 6061 non-tempered AI-light, soft, easily milled. That unit looks to be bent during production. Take it back.

Bring it back to Apple.
If they aren't up for a replacement model you should sue them.
And if you have received it without a problem and it bend under any circumstance it is your fault.
Altough I do always believe the OP you should bring it back and blame them for the production fault.

Dave,

Dave,
I look forward to the day when companies start returning the favor and suing idiots who break their phone and try and get it repaired for free.

To all the typical Apple haters at the beginning of the thread, stop it. Seriously. Stop regurgitating the same crap over and over that has no factual basis. This case is completely different than all the other bent phone threads.

This is 3 hours after purchase and it's not even bent at the normal spot everyone else's is. This appears to be bent almost exactly at the halfway mark. This is clearly not the users fault if it came out of the box that way (assuming the OP is telling the whole truth). OP, I would take it back today before you lose any credibility with the store. If nothing else, call and start a claim with apple letting them know that you noticed it this early and it was not your fault.

The store was closed last night.. I'm in asia. I'm now headed to the store. Let's see what they'll say.

----------

Here's a side by side with the 4. It's not that noticable until you look closely in the middle there's a slight bent

Globe telecoms replaced my unit after seeing it. They said good thing I was able to see it since it's not noticable if you just look at it.

Nonsensical post makes no sense. Do you have some sort of super vision?

Glad they replaced it for you without any issues.

You should be praising Apple! Their super computer assembly line picked out the perfect matching back (they have 725 versions) to the gentle curve of your "custom" iPhone 5. that is genius I tell you, fits like a glove.

It's not bent, you're just holding it wrong.

This curvature is normal, Apple is now producing them as such to streamline the natural shape of the human face...

The first thing I do when I buy my iphone was to test it if it was not bend.

You need to check this before you leave the store with your new iphone 5.

I am sure they will give you a new one, but if you are buying a new iphone 5 check this first.

Huh? You want to test if it will bend?? Just put it your back pocket and sit on it for awhile. If it's straight you have a good one.

Even if this person sat with the phone in their pocket and it bent, still take it back to Apple. This is normal use.
Why? B/c I've never paid attention to how I need to sit with a phone before this one, so why should the iphone 5 be any different? Let alone the single most expensive phone on the market, which the manufacturer itself willingly touts as being superior?

Because putting 150, 180, 200 + lbs on top of a phone is not normal use, no matter how many people do it. That is not how you treat little electronic devices who's main feature is a glass screen. Hell, that's not how I would treat my little iPod shuffle either. The only thing that ever goes in my back pocket is my wallet.
