Based upon the image shown above, it looks like the iPhone 6 Plus might not be the only device out there that has a tendency to "bend" when worn in your back pocket. In case you missed all the hullabaloo, shortly after the iPhone 6 Plus was launched by Apple this year, a large swath of users began reporting that its flimsy construction sometimes allowed it to bend when worn in your back pocket.
The debacle was called #bendgate, and although it was a bit overblown by the media, it was still enough of an issue that Apple made some redesigns on the internal structure of future iPhone 6 Plus devices to avoid the issue. Today's report suggests that Sony may need to take the time to reinforce their Xperia Z3 as well. A user has reported the same bending problem with his Xperia Z3 and the image above is evidence of that.
We've included a couple more images from the original source in the thread below. Let us know if you think this is an isolated incident or something Sony should look into.
