It's conflicting report on how many iPhone were damaging or malfunctioning...

There's a picture in this article showing iPhone 5 was bent. Conflicting reports claim Apple may have returned 5 million faulty iPhone 5s, factory denies

I don't see the problem with my iPhone 5. Hmm... Yep, it could be manufacturing during different time, probably the recent one.

iPhone 5 is the most vulnerable iPhone ever made. Please DO NOT put it in your pocket, purse, backpack, with your keys or any place reachable by children to avoid any unreasonable damage that you would have no clue how. Took this to the Apple Store and paid $229 for a replacement. Just to make you guys happy, see how this piece of 'art' is being bent.

Well, I use to a holster belt clip with case. I never put in my pocket of pant.

I think holster looks awful and someone may confused it with gun holster. The thief easy see your holster right away.



I think it mean pocket of rear pant. It's most common bent other smartphone, small digital cameras, pda, etc. I alway put it in my pocket of side pant for half year. Nothing happen.

I don't use that anymore. Couple years ago, I had my smartphone damaged from belt clip because it knocked off from my belt or received hard bang while working. I have been putting it in my front pocket for 3 years - no damage or bend (that's with HTC EVO and iPhone 5).
