Huh?
I've had my 5 since launch and it never bent.

Did you mean blend? Cuz I can't wait to,see if the 6/6+ will blend. :D

I never thought of the Iphone 5, or any other iPhone as "bendable" I imagine it'd be more possible with a thinner phone, like the 6. I'd not be keeping it in your back pocket, lest you may sit on it.

Mine is still perfectly straight even after all the imaginary stress I've put it through.

My iPhone 5 had a slight bend/twist in it after always keeping it in my front jeans pocket. Pressure was applied to it over time and it bent / twisted slightly. This is what messed up my down volume button over time and it did not work. If I twisted the phone slightly back the other way, the down volume button would work again.

If you take your iPhone 5 / 5s, you can definitely apply pressure and bend it slightly. The key is to avoid situations like in a tight pocket where when you sit down it might put too much force on the phone and bend it. Do this enough times and it probably will bend it.

I ended up sending the iPhone 5 in under the sleep/wake button replacement program this year and that fixed the volume button permanently (they are on the same flex cable assembly that was replaced).

The other nice thing is they replaced several other parts for free that did not meet their standards during the repair process. My iPhone was about 15 months old (no Apple Care purchased) and they replaced the battery which was great.

I will keep this iPhone 5 as a back-up in case one of our new phones has an accident. It really is still a great phone.

OP is talking about when people pre-ordered their iPhone 5 two years ago, a number of people received phones that were slightly bent. Slight but noticeable.

Such as:

Was that straight from the factory?! I knew the iPhone 5 had a tendency to bend when sat on while in your back pocket, but I never remember hearing about them coming from the factory like that.

I still remember one of my friends who slammed an iPhone 4 in the door of their car twice and it survived minus the back panel and bent frame.

I believe so. Several people were posting about theirs when receiving them and had to get them exchanged. It really was weird.
