lmao, from Weibo(Chinese Mirco-blog) -

Translation: The iPhone5 is longer, lighter and thinner, but then it caused another problem - if you put it in your back pocket and sit on it, then you have a good chance to bend it.

Hmm, seems a bit weird as you would have to put a serious amount of force on it to bend like that. Let alone so perfectly.

Any more photos of it from other the other side or different angles?

Nothing good has come out of putting your phone in your back pocket ever.

At least it still lives unlike many other phones that can't get through that kind of damage, let alone, how tight the hardware is.

Seems like the iPhone 5 has beaten the Samsung Galaxy S4 to the bendable display :laugh:

I do a lot, but my wallet is in the same pocket, and the phone would be closer to my body, plus usually being in so tight, the phone isn't all the way down to the bottom of the pocket, so really it doesn't get all the pressure on it..

It is caused by both pressure and body heat over time.

I wonder if Apple will use this when they patent flexible displays.....

But seriously, dont be stupid and sit when your phone is in your back pocket. Mine goes in my front pocket, never in my back.

This is why my phone goes into my front pocket along with my wallet.

C'mon people, putting it in your back pocket is asking for trouble. Bending would be the least of your concern - I'd be more worried about pickpocketing.

Plus with the trend of heading towards larger phones, I doubt they'll even comfortably fit there unless you have a really flat arse :p

I don't even know why there is a back pocket. Unless you have a lot of fat back there its very uncomfortable sitting on something like a phone or wallet.

I would find it very weird to not have back pockets. I use them more than front pockets. I only use the right front pocket for change, keys, and lighter.

If the secondary front right pocket of pants is big enough for my phone, I use that sometimes, but those pockets very seldom are big enough.

They beat Samsung by bringing the bendable phones first.

Hmm, for anything but a tissue or temporarily carrying stuff in it from A to B it really is uncomfy as hell.

You're rolling in late, have a look at page 1 :p

Could be one of the selling points for making you want to buy the next model. New and improved ass-bend resistant chassis.

I wear mine on my forehead with a headband. I get better signal strength that way.

Same here. I don't take any chances of someone stealing my stuff or me breaking something.
