Bent iPhone 6

Noticed I had a bend in my iPhone 6 in the weekend. Unsure how it happened, I presume from being taken in and out of its case and it is never in my pocket etc. Phone still works perfectly.

I took to the Yoobee Shop in the mall who told me to visit their service centre store, so I went there just to be told to ring Apple.

Apple said it is not under their warranty but would give me a replacement for $449. If it wasn't their issue. why would they give me a replacement for over half the price?

I have done a lot of googling. most say that it is just hit or miss on who you get in the shop, Others say no hope in a replacement, others say they got a replacement no trouble.

Disappointed that my $1000 investment can be bent/broken approx 4-5 months.

Anyone else had a bent iphone?

Warranty doesn't cover user damage. Neither does the CGA.

Aware of that, but bending iPhones have been a huge issue when the 6 came out so thought Apple might have put some kind of procedure in place. Just asking whether or not if any one else has a 6 that bent and what they did about it ie. get it replaced or fixed etc.

Didn't you get the memo? That's a new feature of the iphone 6, bends without any effort at all. LG took it even further and made permanently bent phones lol.

Sarcasm aside, it was only a few days after release that reports started flooding in about the iphone 6 bending easily. It's a flaw in the unibody design but Apple will never admit to that.

It wouldn't bend during normal usage. If its bent due to you bending it how do you expect apple to be responsible?

I would go into the store you purchased it from and state your case. Or you could claim under contents insurance

is it broken, or just slightly out of shape ?

There were news items when they first came out that they bend easily. Did you not see them?

Ooops.

Of course I saw on the news that they bent. It was a big story at the time.

All I wanted to know is if anyone else had an iphone 6 that bent and what they did. Whether they left it, somehow got it fixed or somehow talked Apple in to giving them a new one.

The $449 price is for a refurb, that is what I paid for a refurb phone when I dropped my iphone 5 in the toilet.
