    Hi guys,

    Anyone have their 9 bending slightly? Just recently bought the 9 and just today found the phone is slightly distorted so that when it's face down on the camera it wobbles a bit. I can literally bend it back. I'm assuming this is due to the plastic frame. I'm very careful with my phones and never put it in a back pocket. Been here since original OnePlus > 3t > 5t > 7pro and now 9. Never happened with all the others, kind of disappointed 😞

    I think the plastic frame holds bends mores than aluminum. Having it in the pocket will be susceptible to some degree of pressure against the body. Even if you squat or sit, the leg still applies pressure to it while in the front pocket. While with aluminum it bounces back. Lesson is never buy a plastic frame phone in the future. Funny thing is the lower price 9R is aluminum while the 9 is plastic...
