    It's not obvious, but it does look slightly bent.

    Any help?

    My first thought would be to put it on a flat surface?!?

    I suggest you place your phone on a slightly bent surface. If it sits perfectly flat on it, then your phone is definitely bent.

    HTH.

    You actually had to ask this question? Never considered putting on a flat surface?

    If it fits a bent surface it's probably bent..... :rolleyes:

    You know this is starting to get interesting. With every iPhone release people get more and more paranoid about their device being perfect. I wonder what things will be like when the iPhone 10 comes out. The phone will need to be an implant or people will complain that the black/white isn't black or white enough on the phone.

    You expect someone to think for themselves and critically think a situation? Come on, this is Mac Rumors where any question is safe to be asked. What color phone should I buy? Ask MR. What size should I buy? Ask MR. What case should I buy? Ask MR. Should I return my phone for another color, size? Ask MR.

    See the pattern? Many members here can't make ANY life decision without asking the folks here on MR. Sad but that's the way it is.

    My iPhone 5 seriously looks slightly bent. When I put it on a flat surface it could be slightly bent. I was wonder if there's a tester or a kit to see if its perfectly straight.

    OP, just sell your iPhone and get yourself a flip phone.

    Put phone in a vice next to a wall, check that phone and wall is level. Take measurements using a vernier caliper, from wall to first edge of phone.
