I thought that the wireless charging may have heated it up and warped the case - so I carried on, no big deal.
Today, I took the phone out of the case and with said case 'open side up,' pressed on each corner - it didn't budge. I was expecting it to tip like my crooked sunglasses do, but not the case.
Then, I do the same thing with my #nexus glass / screen down. When pressing the bottom left corner, the top right corner pops up.
#bendgate for my #nexus5 . No way!
I keep my phone in my left pocket, screen against my leg (so I don't whack into something and crack the screen), headphone jack down. Well, unless I'm using the headphones, then I most likely have a jacket on & it's in an upper chest pocket.
On reddit I found that it's happened before - but not that much:
I did call #google tonight - and caused my "agent" to chuckle repeatedly when he heard of my phone being warped. At first I found it amusing as well - but after 10 minutes, seriously, it's not that funny and he really got on my nerves - as nice as he was.
After being placed on hold 3-4 times for him to research this 'issue,' he came back with "after speaking with my supervisor, it seems to be customer induced damage and that's not covered under warranty."
So, then I politely ask to speak to whomever he just spoke with and another hold ensues. He comes back to say that they'll replace this one time only.
I said I'd think about it -- and requested that he note the case with his offer in case I decide to take them up on it.
Now, since I've been anticipating the #nexus6 - do I wait and see if it also has a similar #apple #bendgate ?
Yes, I over-hashed because this is one of my few public posts and could use the visibility.
I saw '256 bit blah blah' in the page title & thought ok, cool - but wait, this is HTTP?
I thought to myself 'eh, they're probably just not too tech savvy & mean the checkout process.'
Then, I clicked 'continue to checkout' where I did see HTTPS ... and went to verify the certificate. Regular old 128 ... no 256s to be seen.
I did not buy.
