Hey there. First of all, I'm not a troll. Just became a member to ask something. A few weeks ago, I bought an iPhone 5. It's the first Apple product that I have got so far, so I think you can help me in some points. I want to hear something about their bending problem, and sorry in advance if my post seems kind of long to read and if my English sucks from time to time. I don't remember how, but while surfing the web, I came across many threads about the bending problem of iPhone 5, and that made me uneasy, as far as you may guess. I usually wear skinny jeans, and always put my phone in the front pocket. I had many phones until today and have not carried any of them in my back pocket. I won't do something like that in the future, either. Inspite of all, I read people's posts aying their phones were still bent although they carried it in their front pockets, never dropped it or never got them out of their cases etc. For these reasons, I became uneasy more and more. In the forums where these kind of things are largely discussed, some say it bends just because of overheating (although most of them claims that alliminium melts in 600 degrees), while some other claim it bends due to dropping or sitting on it, or putting it in the wrong pocket. 1) Is this bending thingie really about overheating? Since reading these, I'm very afraid of causing it to overheat by playing many games with high sizes or even turning 3G on while surfing the web. 2) As I stated before, I bought my iPhone 5 a few weeks ago. Seeing that many bending problems were reported in the fall of 2012, or reported few months ago by those who had been using their phones for months since their release date, I suppose Apple may have fixed this problem by strengthening their materials a little bit more for the next 5s they made. Do you guys think so? Think I'm lucky to have bought it so late? 3)Tonight, I asked a friend of mine using an iPhone 5 and he told me that he bought it in December, 2012, and it still looks fine. Perhaps, there are a little numbers of flawy ones in the millions of them which were sold around the world? 4) In the many threads, people say that they use an otterbox for protecting their phones, and the others say that their cases, which made of plastic, can cause this. I don't use an otterbox. I bought a case yesterday which seems hard plastic to me. I am not so sure, though. So will it protect enough, or not? 5) Some say they can't bend it with their bare hands no matter how hard they try, while the others say their phones have easily bent by putting it in their back pockets. What do you guys think the truth is? 6) As far as I know, Apple didn't make any official explanation about this yet, did they?
