It’s only been a good 5 days since the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus hit the market, and as expected, a number of complaints have already surfaced regarding the design. A series of photos have begun to appear online showing how the aluminum frame of each smartphone is being damaged due to bending issues.

Apple fanboys have flooded the MacRumors forum complaining about this flaw—noting the issue is most present at the top end near the volume buttons. Twitter user Nelson Cardoz tweeted an image showing his device in its abnormal form after owning it for just 18 hours. Similar images have followed since.

Another owner posted a video showing their iPhone 6 Plus bending fast when pressure was applied. Should it be something to worry about? Hard to tell considering the iPhone 5S, 5, and 4S all suffered similar problems during their initial launches. Apple has yet to respond to this.
