The Xperia Z3 mobile phone from Sony has a Bendgate issue of its very own and it’s specifically like the one found on the iPhone 6 Plus. A lot more on the Z3 and its style flaw right after the jump!

A Google+ user had actually earlier noticed that the Xperia Z3 was susceptible to bending when stressed in your tight denims’ pocket. Baseding on the individual, the phone had angled in his close friend’s pocket and offered the secret behind it, it was ended that Sony’s smartphone experiences the very same problem which iPhone 6 Plus users have been facing, and can be directly associateded with exactly how the phone is made.

The individual claims:

“”This is what takes place when you put an Xperia Z3 in your pocket. I previously possessed a Z1 and that blew up on me. This is my friends Z3, another close friend has a Z3 compact and the back broken from regular usage. Verdict: Xperia Z Phones are below average and not worth the cash, too numerous failures to neglect.”

“The Z3, comparable to its predecessors, utilizes glass for its exterior construction, with the screen and back both being covered. For those with a Z3 today, this must be an alarming problem considered that while metal could take care of some stress and bend without totally destroying a phone, the glass on the back of the Z3 might crack provided also the least bend. That nevertheless, is something that is totally circumstantial as well.



This proposal to make devices with the slimmest profile seems offering way to devices that we will not refer to as flimsy right now, but with the larger screen on an ultra-thin covering, the possibilities of a phone being bent or stressed in tight garments to a bending point – – otherwise a snapping point, significantly raises.




These problems appear to be running in devices that are presently being constructed using steel alloys as an alternative plastic, with steel being more vulnerable to bending, obviously. According to the regrettable user of the Z3 that bent in his pal’s pocket, previous experiences with Sony phones have been bad sufficient for him to ditch the Sony brand when and for all.
