Xperia SP Frame Bent Issue appeared like Xperia Z1 – Poor Build Quality or User’s Fault ?

A few months back we reported that many Xperia Z1 users were complaining that frame bent has appeared in their handset without any external force applied. Though if you’ll look at Xperia Z1 frame bent pics you wont believe that it has appeared without application of any external force but as number of users reporting this issue is very large so it makes us to doubt on the build quality of Xperia Z1 on those particular handsets. Well unfortunately now Xperia SP users are also reporting same frame bent issue on their handset.

One such user Corey Walter has contacted us regarding the “Xperia SP Frame Bent Issue” which appeared in his handset and it really looks really terrible. Flat bar designed Xperia SP is looking like Xperia T curve design, well mocking aside; all such cases which are arising almost daily regarding the build quality of handsets is a serious concern.

As claimed by the user, all frame bent appeared itself, no force was applied from his end but the issue now arises is that whether Sony will take up this case under warranty or not. As seen from the comments of many Xperia Z1 users, some got their handset replaced from Sony for same issue and to some Sony refused saying such frame bents can’t appear itself, weird huh ?

[ UPDATE – 23 FEB ]

Another user “Narelle & Phil” has reached us and unfortunately bends have appeared in their Xperia SP frame also which is very disappointing, it seems now as many users are reporting, there may be some issue with those frames.
