    Hi, I have to ask you Lumia 925 owners, do any one of you have a slightly bent frame? Mine is just 2 centimeters from the top.

    I noticed that its the case for me, and I have not had any accidents, not as bad as i know will be needed...

    Best regards,

    / Ville

    Given the material it's not likely this is supposed to be like that. I've got a 920 but I've seen and had a play around with plenty of 925's and never noticed it being bent at the top before. Are you able to give us a picture of what you mean at all?

    No way should it be bent.

    A photo would be great if you could.

    Mine is bent too. Badly I can say. The screen glass gets above the chassis. I noticed this after I hit it on the carpet floor ( a little badly). I don't think this would cause bending. If the screen had shattered, ok, but bent? Noo.

    My lumia 925 is also bent. I only noticed it after turning it in for repair after the screen poppet out 1mm~ from the frame similar to the poster above.

    Nokia claims that the device has been subjected to physical overload and therefore their warranty does not cover this..
    I have owned this device for about 4 months and always been very careful with it. When I turned it in for repair there was not even a single scratch on it and I also have a recipe from the service shop saying this..

    One thing I noticed though is that the device got extremely hot using apps and sometimes if I was using an app for long enough it crashed and shut down and I couldn't open anything until the device had cooled down..

    Maybe the heat has something to do with the frame getting bent?

    Nope, not mine and I've dropped my phone twice in the first 3 months of having it.

    It has nothing to do with some phones getting hot. Aluminium has to be way hotter than lets say the 60 degrees Celsius that some phone get to bend easily.
    To get your phone screwed up like that, it must have been in a situation that had a lot of tension and / or force. Aluminium doesn't just bend without a reason.

    My 925 is completely flat and it's been VERY hot before. Must've been something else, heat wouldn't bent aluminium.

    Well I don't even have back pockets on any of my pants so thats out of the question...

    Does anyone know how they mount the display module to the frame?
    Do they glue it or only screw it?

    This pdf file on the phone is better than a video...........well I think so. I put it in my public folder in onedrive.

    I can't see where they remove the display from the frame in this document, or perhaps they never do ?
    Lets say they need to repair a cracked display, do they also change the frame? I mean does it come as 1 unit or how to they attach the screen to the frame?

    I went over the pdf and looked at a video and you are right it doesn't show them apart. This site sells screens with and without the frame. So it must be possible. Nokia Lumia 925 Replacement Parts
    The thing I don't like about the 925 is that "box frame" special tool that is required to work on the phone.

    You're saying heat does not bend aluminium? Have you heard about thermal expansion? Aluminium does not need to melt for it to be deformed..
    Ofcourse in normal conditions the aluminium, when cooled down again, would return to its original shape but if there is some internal or other force applied it sure wont return to its original shape..

    I think you are mistaking when you say that the temperature of the phone reaches high enough to be able to bend aluminum.
    Of course high temps can bend the aluminum but it has to be way hotter than that.

    I was crawling around under the car earlier this week with my 925 in my pocket.
    Fortunately I didn't damage the device, yet I could see how this may happen if the phone was subjected to some kind of tremendous in-pocket stress.

    I was an auto mechanic by trade and I read that an aluminum piston had to reach 500 degrees F before it started to soften.

    the temperature bending aluminum debate is silly. you could bend this frame between your fingers if there weren't other components supporting the structure

    There were some good links that walk you through repairing a 925. As soon as I find them I will post them here.

    Thanks but I'm most likely going to return this phone and get another brand. Never experienced such useless support from a company like this before.

    Never again Nokia

    So, you're boycotting Nokia as an option just because of this one situation you've had with this one phone? Okay, then...
