I put my M8 face down on a table today and noticed that it rocked corner to corner. I have a TPU case on it and only carry out in my front pocket and my pants aren't too tight. Took the case off and the phone is slightly bent. Same thing happened to my EVO LTE. Didn't affect the function of it and never got worse over time. Hopefully this one will be the same.

Wow, hadn't heard that before. What are the odds you would have 2 different phones that are warped or bent that causes a rocking. Weird. Maybe take it to an auto body shop to get the frame straightened or an alignment.

I think all phones are a little bent to an extent. They aren't all perfect. I've had a lot of phones and a lot of them had done kind of bend somehow. Not all but a few.

It wasn't bent when I got it. This was a fairly common problem with the EVO LTE. As long as it doesn't affect the functionality, it doesn't bother me that much. It's more of a curiosity.

Hey, Can I see a picture of the bend?

My M7 is also bent, and hard bricked (QHUSB). I will send it to warranty tomorrow and see if they fix it for free. My phone was also in a TPU Case.

After 1 month of normal use, the metal part between volume button and the screen bend, for HTC service the problem is not cover by the warranty and when I asked why it's bend ?? until now there's no answer. For a product that cost 600 €, this is a poor quality material and services.20140618_180817.jpg20140618_180928.jpg20140618_181049.jpg

Same thing happened to mine after a fall on to concrete with a case on. I took a metal stylus and smoothed it back out to where it looks normal, but you can still feel a little of the deformation with your finger

First, I try to push it back but unsuccessfully. The metal is very poor quality and its reliability can't be compare with my Samsung GN3, longer and stronger but faultless always in my pocket or the Iphone of my wife.

"Normal use" wouldn't cause this. Are you sure you didn't drop it or get it caught between something? Looks to me more like a dent than a bend.
