The Sony Xperia Z1 is a stellar device, both in terms of looks as well as internal hardware. However, according to a user, the smartphone has a faulty design and a frame which bends on its own without the owner’s doing. The pictures posted by this user clearly show that the smartphone has bent more than usual. Sony is yet to acknowledge or comment on this issue, so we will reserve judgment until we have further clarification. At this point, all we have are these pictures and there’s no background available as to what led to this, so it’s most likely due to mismanagement of the user or merely an isolated incident.
Another likely scenario is that the user probably was carrying the phone in his back pocket. Sony smartphones are known to be durable with the company paying much emphasis on the design and construction of its smartphones, especially if it is a flagship device like the Xperia Z1. So until we have sufficient proof that this is a known issue with the Xperia Z1, we cannot jump to conclusions. If you own an Xperia Z1 and are facing similar issues (or not), make sure you let us know in the comments box below.
