    Just got a new jet black 7 plus and had it on the bed when my gf just sat down on it not realizing... Was for a mere second.. shes not big so it wasn't like 300 lbs of pressure but shes like 100 lbs. But now I'm a bit paranoid that my phone was bent ever so slightly.. I find myself holding it up to make sure it's straight but can't really tell if my eyes are playing tricks on me.

    Btw, I put it on the screen with the brightness up on max on a flat surface. There is slight push play when i push down in the center (very slight).. but this is normal?

    Without a photo, no way to judge. However, I think they've had two generations to avoid Bendgate so I think you're good.

    Yes, it probably needs an alignment.
    Bring it to Apple.

    Looks like it is pretty straight to me. Can you explain push play to me? I apologize, I'm not exactly sure what you mean.

    From the third pic it looks like it might, *might* be slightly twisted. But that's not a cause for concern, I wouldn't worry about it. Hard to say for sure from those pictures.

    Try the wobble-test, place the phone with screendown on a plain surface, tap every corner with the finger

    It looks fine, and they fixed most if not all of the bending issues when they moved to stronger aluminum in the 6S.

    When in doubt use a hydraulic press. It'll sort out the phone along with any OCD that comes with it.

    Most folks who claim to be OCD are not actually. If you are, get help. If not, let it go. Your 100lb girlfriend didn't bend your phone.

    Lay it on a flat surface with the screen facing down and stamp hard on it with your foot. It will be flat now!



    j/k It's fine, relax.

    Only here can a user be worried about his phone and the posters start arguing about the real meaning of OCD.

    For me, it might look like in the second and third picture there is slight bend. The camera bumb-side and the left side on the lightning picture is more upwards (those are the same left sides of the phone).

    Does the phone make any noises when you try gently twist it? Is the display still firmly attached to the body if you push from all corners and sides? If yes i wouldnt be worried at all.

    Not seeing a problem with your device. It appears as if it is within Apple's tolerance. Enjoy your phone instead of obsessing over small cosmetics. :)

    True. Apple uses 7000 Series Aluminum in the 6s/7. The same aluminum used for the Sport Apple Watch.
