So you left home in the morning feeling good in your new skinny jeans. Unknowingly, your phone was in your back pocket. You reached out to grab it and tried to squat down until you realized the worst-case scenario. Your smartphone was bent!
To be candid, damaging our smartphones is somewhat related to having a flat tire in most cases. But thankfully, having a bent phone doesn’t mark the end of its life. Instead of preparing to buy a new one when your phone is bent, you can actually fix it. Don’t you think so? Here’s how it works!
Can you fix a bent phone?
If what comes to your mind after seeing your lovely phone in a new awkward shape is “Can I unbend my phone?” You’re not the only one who would consider changing their phone’s shape. It’s not that simple.
A A bent phone is usually a phone whose frame has been warped. This is common with phones that have weak frames made of aluminum or plastic. And in such a case, the frame needs to be changed.
You can’t usually change the frame of a phone at home without a basic phone repair tool. It requires dismantling all the phone’s components from the bent frame and coupling it to a new one. A professional is the best person to do this.
Replacing your warped phone’s frame is a delicate job. And in most cases, it requires more time, experience, and professionalism to get the job done.
Trying to straighten your bent phone by yourself is risky as it will cause further and perhaps expensive damages. That means you need to visit an authorized service provider to fix your bent phone. If the bent phone was not intentionally caused, this should be provided as a complimentary service.
How to prevent your phone from being bent
Even though it’s unlikely for any 2021 modern phone to get bent, there’s nothing impossible. Meanwhile, if your phone is still in a pristine condition, it should be your best interest to prevent it from bending. Here’s how:
1. Keep your phone out of tight places.
The first step to prevent your phone from warping is to keep it off your tight pockets – usually the back pocket in most cases. Many phones that have been bent or damaged are due to people who keep them in their tight pockets.
Tight jeans and dresses can seem like a good choice for most people but it is not healthy for your phone as it will squeeze when you bend, squat, or even sit.
If you must keep your phone in your pocket, ensure there’s enough space to contain and prevent it from heavy pressure when you move your body.
2. Protect your phone with a case.
Don’t blame the phone manufacturer for making mistakes. However, if your phone’s shape is still in impeccable condition, we recommend you attach a sturdy protective case to it. The case will keep your smartphone safe from accidental bends, even if it’s in tight pockets.
A protective/bumper cover will not only protect your phone from being bent but also keeps it free from marks and scratches.
3. Your phone should not be placed near your bedside.
You can also bend your phone by pressing and squeezing it in tight pockets. To ensure you don’t wake up to a bent phone, learn how to keep your phone off the bed before sleeping.
4. Use light pressure to your phone.
You probably have watched the viral “Bend Test” video on YouTube where a YouTuber was trying to bend a phone to see how durable it is. Isn’t it?
However, to prevent your phone from bending, you should never try to curl, squeeze, or apply too much pressure on it. Now that it’s not accidental or unintentional, you shouldn’t be the one to damage your phone’s frame by bending it.
Where to repair a bent phone
Like many delicate mobile repair services, the recommended place to repair your bent phone is the official service centre. The good news is that the official service provider will fix your phone free of charge if it was bent by accident due to a factory defect.
Meanwhile, if your phone should bend naturally, then you’re probably not the only one facing the problem. So, chances are your manufacturer is aware and ready to fix the problem for free. However, they would check if the bending wasn’t done carelessly before they agree to fix your bent phone for free.
