    I'm sorry, but your tone here has certainly changed during the course of the thread. Your opening post was accusatory and hinted that the frame material is designed too weak... The fault seems to lie with Lumia for creating an inferior product.

    OMG! My Lumia 830 is just a month-and-a-half old and it's got a dent! On both the corners at the top side, the frame has flattened. Is the Lumia 830's frame made up of too soft metal (aluminium) that it could not even withstand a slight force! What if I need to get it repaired in the future due to inevitable defect! No, I wouldn't be able to get it serviced under warranty, would I? I shall have to pray that the person in-charge at the Care store doesn't notice it.

    Anyone in the same boat?
    It did not fall. It had hit against the wall and my table's leg accidently while picking it up. But not that hard btw

    Until now you are just providing a public warning on the chances of damaging an 830...

    Not at all for any of the reason you stated. Just wanted to know how many have the same problem. Because, already I had received a defective product and so I feel doubtful about every thing that happens to it. It certainly did not hit anything so hard as you may be thinking. Trust me, I really love my 830. Which is why I bought it second time even after I got a defective one at first. This does not make me love my phone less.

    I should have posted it in the off topic lounge btw. People take it too seriously.
    My goal here:- Lumia 830 is probably vulnerable to such inci'dents' if you do not protect it. So, if anyone has removed its protective case for no good reason, put it back.

    Take it positively, please!

    I've long known that damage may occur to my phone in any accident, no matter how "slight" the accident might appear on the surface of it. Physics is a complicated and wonderful beast. In your case if your phone struck not too hard (your words, but highly subjective) against a table leg... You have to take into account many factors including (possibly) a corner on a square leg which acts like a blade edge to focus and concentrate force, multiplying it beyond what casual observation would assume the force to be. Also there is square area and force to consider. .25kg/meter/second dissipated over 1 square meter is entirely less damaging than the same forceful acceleration is when concentrated on 1 square millimeter. These things are known. The variables of cell phone accidents are multitudinous. The fact that a phone can get damaged is not a mystery at all.

    My philosophy is: "Cell phones are like people, they should never leave the house naked. It is just asking for trouble."

    Another useful thought is: "Stuff happens."


    Thank you, though, for the public service warning. Truly there are many users who do not think of the consequences until those consequences are visible as damage to their device... This board gets plenty of threads expressing this. So does every tech forum I have ever visited: regardless of device, OS or manufacturer.

    Can't believe how this thread (not me) has changed its course. I am really surprised how people themselves judge other people and can read their minds even on the internet. (Not directed towards anyone specific; it's in general). It hurts a lot when someone tries to prove something not even thought of by the other person ever! I am done here. *Winding up*

    Not doing any favour though
    Have lots of work pending. Let's not argue. It kills my day.
