    Was just analyzing my passport a bit when I was cleaning it and something didn't look right, seemed ever so slightly warped. I placed the phone flat on a table and used my finger to push down on the top left of the screen and no movement, when I pushed down on the top right of the screen I found it moved a bit and when I measured was just over a quarter of an inch gap between the phone and the table when it's lying flat.

    I keep the phone in my back pocket and don't recall ever sitting on it, but must have. Either way: I have come to the conclusion that the passport can and will bend. Note this was not a manufacturing defect as it wasn't like this when I got it..

    For those who post 'all phones will bend depending on stress and circumstance'.. I do understand this but hoped the solid build of the pp would prevent this from happening so easily...

    8310 -> 9800 -> 9900 -> Q10 -> Z30 -> Passport ftw

    0.25" = 6.3mm

    The passport is only 9.3mm thick... if what your saying is true, and your passport is "bent" by a quarter of an inch, you would notice it even while holding it let alone rocking it on a table... OR you just don't know how to measure...

    Either way, anything can bend that's a given, materials have a yield point where they cannot return to their original shape...

    Your story is fishy though... pictures will prove everything you are saying without a reasonable doubt

    Here we go again. What would possess anyone to put a 700.00 device in their back pocket is beyond me. Nevertheless, an expensive lesson learned...maybe!

    I sometimes put it in my back pocket. It's made out if steel. The passport won't bend

    There are other threads around here about the Passport bending, one even with pretty graphic photographic evidence. It must take quite a bit to bend it, but it sure seems to eventually deform.
